Photo Recap: Rocket League Championship Series 3 Finals

NZXT has been a proud supporter of the Rocket League Championship Series since Season 1. It’s truly been an honor to provide the world’s best Rocket League players with the equipment they need to compete at the highest level of gameplay. Whether it’s by building high-spec stage PCs, lending out free-play stations for fans,  or simply watching the action from the sidelines – we’re always excited to attend an RLCS event!

This RLCS event was bigger than ever as 10 teams competed over 3 days for a chance to win their part of a $150,000 prize pool. There were plenty of highlights inside the Wiltern Theater but in the end, it was Northern Gaming that prevailed and took home the coveted RLCS trophy and bragging rights until Season 4.

And with nearly 200,000 concurrent viewers on Twitch this past weekend, it’s pretty safe to say Season 4 will be even crazier!

Here’s a look at the action from the RLCS Season 3 Finals:

Introducing the S340 Elite Hyper Beast

NZXT is excited to announce the S340 Elite Hyper Beast Limited Edition, a monstrous psychedelic evolution of the popular S340 Elite mid-tower. Following up on last year’s highly sought after H440 Hyper Beast, NZXT and graphic artist Brock Hofer have again joined forces to deliver a case crafted for the dedicated CS:GO player. This new chassis features the breathtaking Hyper Beast weapon skin found on CS:GO’s infamous AWP sniper rifle.

Like the H440 Hyper Beast, this rare S340 Elite will be produced in a one-time production of 1,337 units, each with a uniquely numbered limited edition metal badge.

“From the overall excitement surrounding last year’s H440 Hyper Beast, we knew we had to collaborate with Brock Hofer again to deliver something even wilder, ” says Johnny Hou, NZXT’s founder and CEO. “We love CS:GO and share the same passion that the community has when it comes to showcasing their prized possessions with the coolest artwork. The S340 Elite Hyper Beast is an extension of this and truly allows the dedicated CS:GO fan to turn one of the game’s most popular weapons skins into a one-of-a-kind build.”

S340 Elite Hyper Beast main features:

  • Limited Edition S340 Elite with Hyper Beast Design
  • Special gradient colored cable management bar
  • Red LED on Power button
  • 4mm tempered-glass side-panel
  • Black VR cable management puck
  • Front VR accessibility
  • Interior cable management clamps
  • Additional SSD tray











A 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.

Monstrous Window

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.

MSRP Pricing:
S340 Elite Hyper Beast – $199.99 / 199,90 €

Availability:
USA / EU – Late May
