Description

Was looking for a simplistic and clean pc build in the new NZXT S340 Elite that could handle all the new games and I think I have managed to do just that.

Haven't yet got around to overclocking or fully benchmarking it but when I do will update my post with results and part reviews, also looking into buying the NZXT hue+ and sleeved cables soon.

Camera used: Nikon D5100

UPDATE 1 Added white sleeved cables, and got my peripherals; Cooler Master Masterkeys Pro L & Razer Deathadder Chroma both solid choices and would recommend on the PEACHAM extended mouse pad. (Excuse the old monitor upgrading the the DELL S2716DG soon)

Part Reviews

CPU

For me it is perfect, I built this PC to play new gaming titles which so far this processor has killed along with more than enough power for my rendering needs.

CPU Cooler

Just as it says on the box all in one cooler that does the job keeps my CPU at 16C idle and I hit around 40-50C max load.

Motherboard

Brilliant motherboard all the support I need as well as great BIOS.

Memory

Great speeds and looks, the only down side is the LED lights that pulse but you cannot sync them, set them to static or turn them off bit of a let down.

Video Card

Brilliant card perfect for anything I throw at it in ultra. Obviously I could of gone for an aftermarket card like the asus or gigabyte but personally the Reference design has always stolen my heart very good looking and not bad performing at all.

Case

My last build was in the S340 and has no problems with it all went smooth so when I saw this coming out it was a no brainier, subtle improvements here and there and obviously the sexy glass panel.

On a scale of 1 to beautiful, I'd say that build is AT LEAST a 42. Love that S340 Elite.

Build looks fantastic, just a few questions though...

  1. Do any parts in this build ever get loud when under stress?
  2. How does the FE version of the 1070 do in terms of cooling?

Once again, build looks slick! Love the colors and design. Definitely worthy of a feature.

Not sure if you did this one purpose, but many SSD's have a reversed logo when put in that spot...not sure if you did that on purpose or not, but it looks awesome!

Great looking build dude, that case is damn sexy!

Did you have any trouble routing the SSD cables through the drive cage?

  • 37 months ago
  • 1 point

Thanks man, and as I only have 1 HDD in the cage behind there wasn't much of a problem but if I were to put in another I could see myself having some trouble with routing the cables.

I'm going to do a similar build, if your interested in the hue+ you should look into NZXT's new RGB fans.

Will this easily be able to run Gta, battlefield, Witcher and other games with over 140 fps?

  • 37 months ago
  • 1 point

I dont know about a constant 140 at very high-ultra settings but It'll definately do if you turn the settings down a bit. Also you might want to check out the forums for any hardware related questions :)

  • 37 months ago

The current battlefield 4 runs at 150-200 on ultra obviously BF1 I don't yet know, GTA around 100 mostly max settings

Damn straight this thing is clean. This makes me appreciate not having a million RGBS or color schemed cables and things of the sort. It just looks good.

For your H100i review you say it keeps your CPU 16 degrees at idle? Do you keep you house that cold?
