For several years now NZXT has been reaping the benefits of listening to the computer building/modding community and delivering products that they actually want. This in turn has led to one of the most loyal customer bases and served to increase the popularity of their brand. So NZXT has amassed what is essentially an all-star team of products ranging from power supplies to cases to CPU coolers and pretty much everything in between save for the bits that do the number crunching. Fortunately for us they haven’t let up yet. Today we will be checking out their newest offering in the AIO cooler category the Kraken X41. Follow along as we find out if this cooler deserves a starting position, or an eternal ride of shame on the bench.
In this instance, we will be looking closely at the (CA-S340W-W1) in short the NZXT S340 / White Edition. Its boxy look’s are nice and practically chocked full of all the ideas that professional “Mod Men of the past” have been custom building and crafting into their own builds for years. In fact, this author was given an opportunity to patent one of these ideas featured in this very case many moons ago, but I was lazy and I passed on the occasion. Well no one is perfect I guess, including this lazy reviewer. The great abundance of flare and near modder’s styling makes this NZXT S340 the “Box that Rocks” and as you can see this reviewer is a fan already, but not all of us see things the same way, so let’s get this NZXT party started.
Forged from strong, cold-‐rolled steel, the S340 exudes an air of confidence that only the most durable of cases is capable of exhibiting. Axing the optical bays and relocating the HDDs to a lower position opens the case up like never before, making this one of the easiest cases to build in ever.
Over the past couple of year NZXT has really set the bar when it has come to computer case design, not only on the outside, but on the inside as well. One of their newest cases the H440 also hopes to do the same. Its extremely sleek design is made possibly by completely removing optical drive bay cases from the case, which make way for an all-new storage system. Inside we see new things like a steel power supply cover that has a NZXT logo on it and even two solid state drive mountings that can be seen through the large side panel window. NZXT really thought out every aspect of this case. Will it impress? Read on and find out!
Razer has announced a licensing program that provides for third-party production and sale of Razer-designed and -branded PC cases. NZXT, a recognized leader in PC cases, was selected as a launch partner for the “Designed by Razer” licensing program based on a shared dedication to innovation.
NZXT has just announced their latest case accessory, the Sentry 3 Fan Controller. This fan controller features a pretty sleek touchscreen LCD with a re-imagined UI from the previous Sentry units. The 5.4-inch touchscreen is 33% larger than any other single-bay fan controller screen on the market. Making controlling the unit a breeze.
NZXT is one of those chassis manufacturers which always seems to surprise with each entry by having some sort of special feature or tweak that makes it just that little bit more easy to use or maybe even adds to overall awesomeness in appearance. So needless to say we were intrigued when we got the H230 in house as it is designed to be a very budget friendly model with a MSRP of around $70 dollars and a present street price of $59.99 at our favorite etailer. Now we wanted to tear into it and show you what we find inside, so read on to see what the new H230 has in store for your budget friendly Mid tower building pleasure.
When it comes to building a PC the power supply is something that is often overlooked and really at the bottom of the component list. Many people want a quality power supply that is feature rich, but do not want to pay the premium cost. This is where NZXT comes in with the HALE82 V2 power supply. Their main goal with this power supply is to bring consumers a high performance, feature-rich power supply without the premium price tag. Today we are taking a look at the 550W version that features a fully modular design, 80PLUS Bronze certification, 135mm silent fan, and a single +12V rail. Is this the power supply for your next build? Read on as we find out.
