This review is from: NZXT S340 Matte Black/Red Steel ATX Mid Tower Case
Pros: Separate shroud for PSU and cable.
Plenty of cooling options.
4 fan mounts: Front 2-140mm or 2-120mm fans, Top-120mm, Back-120mm.
Red metal (cable hide) bracket can come off to cable manage then put back on.
SSD mounts work.
Bottom storage for platter drives or more SSDs
Cool front intake design by drawing in air from top and bottom of front panel, both PSU and Front panel are filtered.
Can fit a decent sized 240mm AIO cooler in the front with ease, might be able to fit a 280mm AIO (wouldn't know, air cooling)
Cons: Front intake screen requires the front panel to come off since its located bout toward the middle. Sausage fingers cant reach that far.
Did not come with enough MB mounting screws as indicated in the instructions. Had to test the other screws that came with to see which ones fit, an used them. Says 9 screws needed, came with 4. (something to that nature)
Case can only handle 161mm tall Air coolers, make sure yours will fit. Mine is 160mm tall and I do have 1mm of clearance left, which my side panel does still fit with no bowing.
Other Thoughts: Just be careful with your air coolers in this case. Cable ties worked, and if taken the time to cable manage, can make a build look pretty slick.
Plenty of basement clearance for PSU cables.
This review is from: CRYORIG H5A Universal Mid Tower Cooler For AMD/Intel CPU's
Pros: Black fan is a nice touch.
Does clear my memory just fine. -Dual channel only, have not tried 4 channel-
Does cool my Kaby lake i5 7500 just fine with idle being 27-28C and in Shroud of the Avatar hovering at 43-45C
Comes with a long screw driver which is really beefy.
Cons: Wish the top had an alternate color plate (Black) to come with the price.
Does not come with alcohol pad, even when its advertised in the instruction booklet.
Other Thoughts: Read the specifications carefully! This cooler is 160mm tall, firmly mounted on the CPU socket. Be sure your Mid-Tower case (mine) can accept it. My Mid-Tower can accept 161mm, and yes...there is 1mm gap left, panel slides without obstruction.
Would like to see some different top plate colors (Black and Red) or some others. But can be carefully taken off to paint.
Pros: All black pcb makes it match just about anything.
Red LEDs are pretty cool looking, but not really needed *just added flare*
Has plenty of little white LED lights on the PCB itself to let you know RAM is working, Power to the MB, audio separation line.
-Worked fine at start up, and drivers installed from the CD -external CD ROM used-.
Debug LED is great, and even tells the CPU temp when other processes are idle, which is neat.
Cons: The software from MSI Mystic Light refuses to detect the PC and only detects your phone. -Install MSI Gaming App from CD to have some control over the LEDs-
The white LEDs on the main board are to dang bright, and cant be controlled from the Gaming App. Would like an option to turn off the white LED notifications.
During Setup, the chipset LED that is RED will go to white when OS is restarting/installing. Have to use MSI Gaming App on CD to correct or else an ugly white color shows.
Other Thoughts: I would love to see a better polished version of the Mystic Light, that can DETECT your MB.
Would like the option to turn off the tiny bright white LEDs around the case.
Would like to see ALL LED options in the MSI Gaming App, Mystic Light shouldn't exist with its current buggy build of not detecting MB.
