NZXT has announced its latest range of cooling fans, the Aer F. Like the Aer P and other high performance fans, these fans are designed for strong airflow and minimal noise. They use ‘winglet-constructed fan blades’ to minimise drag and improve cooling, while ‘patented fluid dynamic bearings’ allow the fans to have a useful life of 60,000 hours or six years.
There are cables in sleeves to prevent accidental damage and make routing easier, while replaceable coloured trims let you match the rest of your build — as long as it’s red, white or blue, and you’re willing to pay a bit extra.
NZXT have made their name with a series of bold, sculpted PC cases that go way beyond the standard ‘black metal cuboid’ design. We loved their Phantom and Manta cases when we’ve had them in for reviews, and their latest creation looks exciting too.
It’s the Noctis 450 Special Edition ROG, a custom variant of the Noctis case that was launched last year. The Special Edition comes in a unique Gun Gray colour scheme, and supports Aura Sync RGB lighting. Let’s take a closer look.

The S340 Elite is an upgraded version of NZXT’s mid-tier S340 PC case, with a few extra features ideal for VR gamers. You can store your VR headset on a magnetic puck and hook it up to HDMI and USB ports on the top of the machine, giving you more cable length to play with. You can also show off your components, LEDs and cable management skills through the tempered glass window on the left side.

NZXT announced an upgrade to its mid-size, mid-range S340 case today: the S340 Elite. The new version sports a massive 4mm-thick tempered glass side panel, considerations for VR gaming and a larger number of SSD trays. NZXT also unveiled a new internal USB hub. Let’s take a closer look at the announcements.Design and upgrades
The most obvious change from the vanilla S340 is the side window. Following industry trends, the Elite’s entire left side has been replaced by a 4mm-thick sheet of tempered glass, held on by four wide screws. That makes it much easier to peer inside and see what’s going on, but also brings some durability concerns — you [...]
Earlier this year we reviewed NZXT’s excellent HUE+ chromatic case lighting ystem, and now the company has moved to the next logical step: coloured case fans.
The new series is called Aer RGB, and essentially it’s a fan with a ring of LED lighting that runs around the periphery, leaving the centre a plain black. The fans connect to the HUE+ controller and can be programmed through NZXT’s CAM software.RGB lighting options
