The Hyper Beast Comes to NZXT’s S340 Elite
If you were staring at the H440 Hyper Beast thinking about pulling the trigger, debating it for while, seeing the stock slip away and thinking you’d never get another chance like that, well NZXT has some great news for you. Apparently the art design was so well received, that graphic artist Brock Hofer made a design for the S340 Elite case. Honestly, this is already my favorite since the tempered glass side panel make the build look great, while the art design on the front and other side panel really sharpens the overall aesthetics of the case.
Like last time, there will only be a limited amount of units, 1,337 to be exact, and you will find a bit of a price tag premium for this design in the amount of $199.99. Don’t let time run out if you know you need to own one of these! Will NZXT begin bringing new art designs to their cases, maybe in the shape of other game or even movie franchises? Check below for an image gallery and the full press release from NZXT.

An unique creation
Working closely with Brock Hofer, the graphic artist creating the Hyper Beast art used on CS:GO skins, NZXT has brought the beast to the physical world. This exceptional S340 Elite version has a one-time production of 1,337 units, each with a unique-numbered, limited-edition metal badge.
The S340 Elite’s 4mm thick tempered glass panel makes building in NZXT’s popular mid-tower chassis even more rewarding. Crisp in clarity, the new tempered glass panel enhances the award-winning all-steel construction design of the S340 by highlighting all builds with uncompromised beauty.
Enhanced with Virtual Reality Gaming
Getting VR up and running with the S340 Elite is a snap with the HDMI and USB-port connectivity readily available from the top panel. The innovative magnetic cable management puck allows users to wind up VR and audio headset cables with ease, or split the puck apart for longer cable coverage.
The Cleanest Mid-Tower Interior
The S340 features an open-interior design with a steel cable management bar that splits the front intake from the rest of the case. A new clamping system has been added behind the cable management bar and along the rear, enabling users to achieve a clean and hassle-free build with minimal efforts.
No Corner Left Untouched
Fully-filtered intakes, steel-plated audio jacks, captive thumb screws, and cable management solutions are just a few of the design features that keeps every build looking sleek inside a compact chassis.
Water Cooling Ready
There’s no sacrificing performance with this small mid-tower case that boasts full compatibility with NZXT’s entire line of Kraken Series liquid coolers.
