Great case, brilliant for cable management

You're getting a Lynx Set

Decent case, but the Meshify C takes the crown now at this price point!

Buy her this case for Christmas

The thing that always put me off this case is the lack of radiator support at the top, there is room there for a 240 but they just seemed to neglect it which has limited cooling options. The front is fairly closed off in comparison to something like the meshify. This is a good price for this case but there is arguments on whether this case is relevant now that the meshify c exists. Unless of course your looking at this case from a aesthetic point of view then it is of course still a top buy.

If you plan on using the two horizontal SSD mounts then make sure you have flat SATA and power connectors because the "L" shaped or anything else won't fit.

Depends entirely on your requirements, for me the Elite still wins out with a quieter VR oriented design:

Tom's Hardware:
The Define-C for example doesn’t have a tempered glass side panel, so buyers trying to decide between the S340 Elite and Meshify C probably aren’t even considering the elder product. The S340 Elite has more ports (an HDMI pass-through and two USB 2.0), a magnetic headphone hanger, and a steel face panel skin to allow the headphone hanger to be stuck on the front. However, the Meshify C has better radiator support. The S340 has a nylon screen front filter that’s easier to clean than the Meshify C’s embedded open-cell foam; but the Meshify C allows its bottom-panel filter to be removed from the front, whereas owners of the S340 Elite must turn their cases around and pull the filter from the back. The one killer feature NZXT has that’s unmatched by Fractal Design is support for oversized motherboards, just in case you’d like to stick a $350+ board into your $100 case, even if you’re not likely to do so.

Though it may not be a world beater in either performance or price, good quality and support for additional cooling make the Fractal Design Meshify C worthy of your consideration.

NZXT airflow is just a major negative.

Switched my spare build from the S340 to the Meshify C today actually:

I wish Noctua would change their fan colour.

Temps in my case aren't really an issue, it's not as though we live in the tropics. Only thing I wish would run cooler is the Ti I have in there.

But as per the graph, it depends if you value a lower temp or lower noise, it's a standard trade off. It doesn't mean the S340 Elite is defunct as you put it IMO.

If you're running a VR HMD as I am the front HDMI and USB connections with the puck are a huge hassle saver!

Noctua have got some black/colour fans now too!

Don't seem too well reviewed though!

I like the makeshift build I made tbh, with the random colours that make no sense haha. And the extra fan I added to the CPU cooler 'cos I had a spare noctua u9s, lol.

I think I'm just sick of NZXT stuff, I've got 3 S340 cases in this room with me (old ones I've taken apart), lol.

Why, is the CPU the only component inside the pc? ye ok.

No, but it's a valid point.

If you're running an i7 at 90 degrees it's much more likely to be sensitive to your case temp and therefore more likely to throttle you, in addition something running that hot will of course need better cooler and will naturally be expelling more heat directly in to your case, versus a Ryzen chip that will hit 70 deg under OC in my case.

If I were running an i7, I wouldn't be running an S340, or a Meshify, I'd be running a bigger box with 360mm rads.

My i7 7700k not delidded 5ghz max temps 66c
My i7 4790k at 4.8 Max temp 69 in the meshify c

GPU is the thing gonna be producing the most heat in the case really

Under 15 mins of Realbench your temps will be much higher than that, the temps I quoted for my Ryzen were from exactly that.

I had a 4770K prior to that, stupidly hot.

Indeed GPU is a big factor, that's why you always want your rad on the front not soaking up the hot air in the top of your case. 280mm x62 with 120mm rear and 140mm top keeps my pressures decent and everything we'll within spec.

My temps on my 7700K don't even go into the 70's on prime95 with avx instruction either, I got a good chip, and a good case for that.

But, the MeshifyC + noctua 140mm fans at front has one of the best airflows on the market, from GamersNexus tests.

I have my radiator on my 7700K at the top as exhaust, seems fine, all tests show similar results too.

It's a fact intel is hotter than amd.
You have a meshify which is good airflow, good choice for an i7 .. all I'm saying is it not so much of an issue with ryzen

Built a pc for a friend with the s340 not the elite and the space for size was actually really impressive.
Been eyeing the elite for a while, great brand, great case.
