Razer, a world leader in connected devices and software for gamers, today announced the NZXT S340 – Designed by Razer PC case. The chassis is the latest product to launch from the “Designed by Razer” licensing program, an initiative that provides for third-party production and sale of Razer-designed and -branded PC cases.
Razer opened the door to collaborations with case manufacturers last year. “Designed by Razer” candidates are subject to vetting by the award-winning Razer design and engineering team prior to approval. Once greenlit, the joint enterprise mobilizes Razer’s design expertise and product engineering sensibilities.
The NZXT S340 – Designed by Razer PC case features an all-steel chassis with Razer signature green triple-headed snake logo on the front panel and the cable management bar. The compact form of the case sits two inches below competing towers with a Razer green power LED and underglow.
This latest in the line of cobranded cases offers Razer fans another premium NZXT case with distinct Razer design sensibilities to build into a beast and connect to an arsenal of Razer peripherals that will intimidate any opponent in-game or in real life.
“We had great success with our first collaboration with NZXT and the H440 – Designed by Razer PC case. Our team couldn’t wait to get started on the next project that brings premium NZXT PC cases with the iconic Razer design to PC gamers everywhere.”
– Min-Liang Tan, Razer co-founder and CEO
“Razer is a premier gamer brand whose influence on gaming technology is unparalleled. Partnering with their team of gaming-minded engineers and industrial designers has helped drive us internally to push the boundaries of what is possible inside a PC case.”
– Johnny Hou, CEO of NZXT.
The NZXT H440 – Designed by Razer was the first licensed desktop case for Razer. Razer’s history in the systems space includes its award-winning Razer Blade line of laptops and the Razer Edge tablet, which won an unprecedented three Best of CES awards at its debut. The company’s fully modular Project Christine concept set a future standard for desktop PC design, earning the official CES “Best PC” award in 2014.
