Packaging, Bundle & Closer Look
As previously mentioned, we were provided with a case, the S340 Elite, a CPU watercooling loop, the Kraken M22 120mm and the HUE 2 RGB Lighting kit, which is the piece the focus of this article will be placed upon.

The front of the packaging doesn’t exactly give away much, but the image is perfectly clear and shows the basics.

Taking a look at the reverse side, NZXT have done a good job of ramming as much information onto such a small packet without creating a mess.

Included within the HUE 2 packaging is 4 sets of LED strips, measuring 300mm x 10mm, with both 3M sticky back tape pre-applied to the back and magnets along the length. There’s a USB motherboard connection, MOLEX power adaptor, a pair of short RGB extensions and a pair of longer extensions. Four connecting cables and a fixing pack including 4 screws for mounting to a 2.5” drive bay and 3M Velcro.

The HUE 2 hub is roughly the same size as a standard SSD and controls everything from one neat package.

All connections are dealt with from two sides, unlike some similar controllers with use three or sometimes four sides. This makes wire routing considerably easier.
