All NZXT Discounts, Offers and Sale - October 2018
Dammit.. I was here.. right here when they were still available.. and I hesitated... my thoughts were.. is this the right thing for me...
Mine arrived today, flawless. It really looks great, I think I'm preferring this slightly more so to my last build with a Fractal R4. For the price though, damn, what a steal. Haven't built a completely new system since 2012 so will have some fun with this. To add, everything intact, no damage, extremely well packaged, happy days.
Well thats jut wonderful! TBH Argos have a 14 day no quibble refund policy so if i get sick of it this week ill send the thing back, or if i see it cheaper elsewhere
Bet that absolutely killed you! If it's any consolation, I've just used my 10% to buy a bin for my kitchen today :o
Yeah couldnt get it cheaper from a reputable seller so had to bite the bullet
Just moved my rig into the s340, EATX motherboard, Noctua D15s cooler, EATX was tight squeeze but fits by taking off the cable management bar.
Mine arrived too, not built it up yet but looks great. The red accent is confined to the top of the front panel, you hardly notice it. Only thing I didn't like is the screws for removing the side panels - awkward and sticky. Just needs a front fan. Overall - delighted.
Case arrived this afternoon. It's really a great case, nothing about it feels 'cheap' note it is a 'gaming case', so you only get two 3.5" drive cages, two SSD's, and there is no way to add a DVD drive, but the airflow is well thought out. nice big feet to raise it up for the bottom PSU inlet, the best I've seen. simple full height inlet filter over two 120-140mm fans (with almost no annoying holes for dust to enter) top 120-140mm fan mount plenty of side panel recess for cable routing top mount USB 3.0 ports huge rear access to the processor backplate The front panel really is very stiff to remove, so get your thumbs by the split dowels and push really hard, the plastic is very thick and won't break. I'm not a big fan of the red, so that may get sprayed over. Side windows are a matter of taste, I'd rather have a panel I could glue sound absorption foam to. Not a lot of clearance at the top, so a radiator may not fit. This is actually better thought out than a lot of £100 cases I'd buy another without a second thought.
You filthy case-ist!
Bought.. wanted a slightly more compact case than the BitFenix Shinobi I currently have. Thanks for the find.
Thanks, just ordered. Been wanting one of these for ages, couldn't not pull the trigger at that price!
Does it look like the picture on the eBay auction, or is it just a classic S340 without the zoostorm logo and red bits?
Still available: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Zoostorm-NZXT-Source-S340-Mid-Tower-Case/263468788296?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649
It's a shame the deal was expired, there's still 3hrs left on the auction. Just search ebay for NZXT Source S340 and it's right there. As there's more than 10 available, it might be relisted anyway.
I got one of these the other day. I didn't know it was a good deal though or I would of posted it on here haha. It turned up yesterday and I wasn't expecting it to be NZXT I thought it was a copycat version. Anyway i put the pc together last night and it's a great case.
Only takes a number of posts on the forum to qualify for free postage. Or at least it did when I had to do the same thing years ago.
I have this case looks amazing and everything about it is great - allthough make sure you have a lot of space as it is massive.
I'd rather go for the H500 for this price. Due out in a few days.
Nice deal, although my heart's set on the 440. Hate OC's rip-off delivery policy though.
I had this case. It's decent enough to work in and it's very flexible with the removable drive cages and fan controller. However, I eventually found the 'gaming armor', whilst it looks good, to be less than practical. It adds a lot of bulk to the case and you can't put accessories like a USB hard drive on the top as it's sloped. FWIW I paid £70 delivered in 2012.
Coming up at £66 for me
Good price for a great case, but having owned a Source 340 for a couple years now, a word of warning: The side window uses an extremely soft acrylic which scratches if you so much as look at it funny. I'd highly recommend spending a bit more to get the elite version with the tempered glass panel.
I sympathise with, and echo everyone's sentiments about Scan. Worst company ever. Should things go wrong and equipment faulty, they will try at every opportunity to not accept responsibility. Recently spent approx. £4000 with them on equipment, and after a few days usage, a couple of items developed faults. Scan, without any evidence, grounds for, or rational justification decided to void my warranty, and outright refused to replace or refund. After a month of going through the proper channels and communicating to various ranks within the company and trying to resolve the issue amicably, I was left with no choice but to consult with legal council & begin legal proceedings to take them to small claims court. It was only at this moment that they finally made some poor (BS) excuse, apologised and agreed to honour their contract with me as a customer by agreeing to replace or refund. I like a good deal just like any other HUKD member, but lesson learnt. NEVER AGAIN! For fool me twice, shame on me. I ended up opting for a full refund and buying the exact same item from Amazon (which costed more because the item was on offer at Scan) but I would rather pay little more for good customer support when sensitive electrical devices go wrong than to have to suffer the ordeal I endured with this company. I (as well as others who have commented before me on their negative experiences with this company) do not wish upon anyone to go through what I had to, and have taken the time to share my experience so you don't have to. BE WARNED!
Every single problem I've had with my pre built they told me was somehow my fault or at least wasn't theirs. They once asked me to send my machine back for a fee to see if they could fix a problem. They encouraged me to buy an extra fan to fix the problem even though it was a machine built by them. The fan did not fix my problem. In fairness, my machine does work and I'm pretty happy with it. But even though I have the 3XS warranty support nonsense, I try my best to troubleshoot on my own. Never again Scan, never again.
I've had multiple issues also, being accused of damaging CPU pins on a prebuilt system so they didn't have to replace it, to waiting 2 months for a graphics card RMA that they forgot about
Tempted to get it, I have the nzxt hades but it’s already snug with the stuff I have framed in there
As the above comments, amazing case for the price. I got mine just before the elite came out, if I could go back in time I would pay the extra and get that though....absolutely beautiful
I got this for way more than this price and it was a bargain then! Great case and works well with the nzxt kraken cooler
Awesome case. Lots of room, easy to work in, good cable management, nice shroud covering the PSU & HDD bay. If you have a few more pennies to spare, the Elite version comes with a glass side panel. It comes with two 120mm fans. I would advise getting 2x 120mm/140mm to mount on the front unless you have a rad to put there
Agree with above, great case for the money
Different strokes for different folks. I've got a Cougar QBX build myself, not the smallest either but it was a cheap case that offered the chance to stuff as much top end parts in without sacrificing temps too much.
had a build in this, nice little case but got the Evolv Shift as a replacement, much nicer looking case.
I've got the red windowed version and I'm very happy with it, Asus ROG maximus viii, i7 7700k, 32GB DDR4, intel 750 SSD, Trancend 220 SSD & a GTX 1080. Lovely solid case & very quiet. The layout is well thought out, but I agree, it's quite large for a Mini ITX red windowed
God that is ugly! And seriously? Huge case, mini-ITX and water cooling? Why?
Good Shape but too large
cant see where to put discount code, am i blind?
Why is this in laptop section?
Seriously bad filters on this case, the one for the power supply is pathetic.. the elite is much better for another £20 plus ya get a free magnetic puck to hang ya headphones on.
These don’t have hard drive mounts do they
Is that the same as this https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00RN3SJW8/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
I have this exact case. A pleasure to build in and looks great
Ordered. Perfect time for the new build 😁 (y) 🏼
For anyone who wants a black one i posted the other day for cheaper but doesn't seem to have attracted the heat fairies =( https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/nzxt-ca-s340w-b3-high-performance-gaming-case-with-vr-support-black-elite-7553-amazon-prime-exclusive-2874128
I ordered the black one the other day for about 50p more and it's due for delivery today. Seems the choice is between the S340 Elite, Phanteks P400s and the Meshify C. Given the prices on amazon this seemed like the best value for money.
Think of it like a good looking gal with a great personality but no make up on.
I ordered a YI Lite 4K Action Camera for £62 on the 6th of January (non-Prime/free delivery) and they still haven't dispatched it yet either. Amazon must be very busy or something.
Has anyone has theres dispatched yet. Ordered 2 days ago and still waiting?
So does aorus 1080 and 1080 ti
There are some. The Gigabyte 'Aorus' 1070 Xtreme Gaming for example has 2
Presumably a top-mounted HDMI port would require an auxiliary HDMI header on the GPU..... that's not something I've seen yet?
This price is for prime only !
I'm pretty sure Zoostorm use these cases for their Stormforce Hurricane PCs http://www.techadvisor.co.uk/review/gaming-pcs/zoostorm-stormforce-hurricane-340-review-3642243/ Zoostorm StormForce Hurricane 340 review: "Housed in an attractive NZXT Source S340 mid tower case finished in black and red".
Looks like something MKBHD would drool over
"Expanding on there S340's renowned durability" Lol, original has a finish that permanently marks just by looking at it so that statement implies this would be even worse if that was possible.
Haha, thought this was a bargain 3D printer at first :(
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.
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
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.
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 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
Oh man, you beat me to the joke! I was gonna say I just bought mine for the kitchen
LOve my H440 silent. This looks even better. I would prefer red than blue.
Thought it was a Nespresso machine.
Thank you, I bought the elite in the end.
That's the standard S340, this is the upgraded S340 Elite with a tempered glass side panel and some other improvements.
What's the difference between the op and this https://www.cclonline.com/product/184530/CA-S340W-B1/Cases/NZXT-S340-Mid-Tower-Case-Black-/CAS2346/?siteID=8BacdVP0GFs-nq_jB2PK.P_JF6XfdbCRuA
Reminds me of those "Windows 7 compatible" stickers on monitors
Well, that was almost 1 year ago and I agreed, what is the point complaining now... At least this will not happen next time, if there will be one. I did not pay anything for the Custom either, the fan costs are too low for that.
I'd complain to them asking why you have to pay for delivery to replace a faulty parts. I was worried about custom charges too, but I didn't have to pay anything. Was delivered in a week.
The e-mail: Jeffrey Dang (NZXT) Oct 8, 6:58 PM PDT Hey there! Not sure if you got my last reply, The customs charge I can't really give you an estimate since that is done through your local delivery service. However for the shipping cost it will be $12.99 USD. I will send you two fans just in case the issue occurs again. Jeffrey Dang - NZXT - so he was expecting that I will pat the Custom as well! Not to say they are really taking their time to answer any e-mails!!
Im surprised they asked you to pay. I complained about a noisy fan on my NZXT S3440 case, and they sent me two replacements free of charge from the US.
I still wouldn't trust water in my machine without some recourse but YMMV. Hopefully you never need it :)
hmm have not tried overclocking so cannot comment on that but RAM with Ryzen is known to be finicky....are your Corsairs Samsung B die? As this one has best compatibility with Ryzen platform. I am using G.Skills 3866, also not on QVL but they work fine on 2nd XMP profile, 2933...have not tried to get them on 1st one, waiting for AGESA 1006 :)
So I bought this on the original bundle deal. Overall seems a decent board, however, for those interested, I'm experiencing the following problems - despite running the latest BIOS. 1) Can't overclock in the BIOS - changing the vCore locks the multiplier to 15x. Stupid, I know. According to the MSI forums this problem occurs on other manufacturer boards and no one knows why (hooray) 2) Can't run my Corsair Dominator RAM at 3ghz. It's not on the QVL I know, but I wanted it because it's shiny. Best I can manage is 2666mhz for now. Other than that, no problems. PC runs really well. Hoping the incoming AGESA update will help!
You have to redeem it using their site. Once you do that and finish the process, it should display on a webpage.
How long did it take for you guys to receive the game code from MSI?
Anyone looking at one of these. Consider checking pricespy.co.uk for the price of the "Arctic Freezer 240mm". All these are made by the same company (Asetek) using the same parts, to the same standard, with the same liquids, same... everything basically. They are then branded and have whatever "fluff" features the new marque wants added (like lights, fan controllers, etc). The Arctic Freezers actually perform the best of these out of the box due to double the number of fans (their version of the "fluff") so where there is space to set these up in push-pull, the best price to performance ratio by a hell of a long way comes from the Arctic branded AIO's. If tacky lighting and similar cosmetics are worth paying around 1.5x the price for... (£70 for a 240mm AF 240mm).
They've not shown that toward me and it's better than the other companies that don't do it at all.
They do give that impression of being one of the more responsive manufacturers, in terms of appreciating the issues a leaking system can cause. But the posts and threads I was referring to mentioned the time delays, lack of communication and very poor compensation when they have acknowledged a claim, considering the value of some of the GPU's damaged beyond repairs. As I mentioned they might be the exception but with an Air Cooler you have none of that potential. After spending many hours reading and deliberation about a AIO cooler I ended up with a Cryorig R1 Ultimate air cooler. Very quite and very efficient.
This is a hot deal, the x62 is more expensive than corsair but great reviews, quiet and just looks bling with the LED ring. People pay more for the bling
It's a shame this is getting so many cold votes though. The smaller X52 went hot when it was at its lowest price of £114.99. This is the next model up for £5 more, and also the cheapest it's been so far.
Not all mobos come with RGB headers. This is just a serial device that runs with NZXT cam software which allows different light setups. It's nice to have and looks good if setup right on a good case. Price is about the same difference if you bought a mobo with a RGB header over a non sparkles mobo.
A deal that lightens
My bad, just checked contents: 1 x Hue+ LED Strips Accessory Pack Thanks for correcting me TonyRoma2010
don't motherboards have built in RGB headers?
Of course it comes with 'lights'.
Guys flubit the amazon link I got it for 67£ will be keeping it for my upgrade :)
NZXT KRAKEN X62
What model is that bud?
If only it was dual slot radiator at top, I could go front but I prefer it at the top, either way, if I do end up with this, think I need to get rid of my NF-F12 fans for the rad hah :|
Which is why I'm pairing mine up with this beauty :D
