NZXT S340 Elite Build and Giveaway

BoyScout

Nov. 22, 2016

Update Jan 4, 2017: NZXT has now confirmed and announced the winner -- congratulations to Alejendro A. from New Jersey!

Update Jan 1, 2017: The entry period has ended. Thanks to everyone who entered! NZXT will validate entries and confirm the winner's eligibility. We'll update this post again once we get the winner's information.

Original Post:

NZXT sent us their new Kraken X62 CPU cooler, Aer RGB case fans, a Hue+ and some accessories to tie all that RGB goodness together inside their new S340 Elite case. We took one look at the case's front panel HDMI port and decided we needed to build the ultimate NZXT VR-Ready Gaming PC.

NZXT liked our idea as well -- so much that they are giving away the complete part list from our build! Head over to the giveaway page to enter for a chance to make this build your own!

Entry period for the NZXT giveaway is open through 12/31/2016. Open worldwide where not prohibited. Must be 13 years of age or older to enter. Check the giveaway page for complete details on the prize as well as the full terms and conditions for entry.

A huge thanks to NZXT for providing their components for this build and for putting together this fun giveaway!

This doesn't make sense. The S340 Elite has 3 140mm fan spots and a 120mm fan spot. 2 of the spots are taken by the X62, so you can't use all the fans.

Regardless I still entered lol

  • 31 months ago

This giveaway has me daydreaming about what I could do if I won. I am blessed enough to have built a PC for both myself and my wife, but my brother is not quite as fortunate. Throughout our entire lives, my brother and I have spent a lot of time as friends as well as a lot of time at odds. The one thing we've always been able to do together no matter where we're at is game. We still do it to this day on occasion, but his rig limits our time together. He is gaming on a laptop (I know), and one that has trouble playing most of the newer titles at all. And now, he is getting married in March! So saving for his own PC is likely even further out of the question. I have dreamt of being able to present him with a beautiful rig I built for him for a while and gaming together in at least the glory of 1080p at 60 frames on some big titles.

If I won: If you have checked out my account yet, you should have already noticed (unless you're new to all of this). The PC NZXT is graciously giving away is vastly more powerful that either of my humble rigs. (never though $1200 would get me humble until I met the PC master race). Nonetheless, as my first rig ever, mine still has far more sentimental value to me than a new one did. If i were by some miracle to win this, I would be delighted to unbox, take some pictures, assemble, set up and give my brother the best Wedding gift he'll ever receive.

If you made it all the way through, thanks for listening to my story! Hope you enjoyed. (don't usually talk much here)
