Closer Look Exterior

When taking a look at the front of the Viper GX II it definitely gives off that budget gamer feel, but in a good way. As mentioned one of the main differences between this and the previous model is the colour change over to an orange, which, of course, went over just fine with us here at Play3r.

The top 60% or so of the front is actually a door that once opened reveals three 5.25″ drive bays so users can still be sure to make use of optical drives, or drive bay mount reservoirs if they fancy a bit of water cooling. The bottom features a nice grill area that is protecting an intake fan that features orange LEDs to match the overall design of the case.

Towards the front of the case on the top is where users will find the IO panel which consists of:

Power/Reset buttons
Audi inputs (mic/headphone)
2x USB3.0 ports
2.5″ SATA Hot Swap bay

Both of the side panels feature a nice raised design to them, the only real difference is the main side panel features a small honeycomb window so users will be able to get a glimpse at the hardware inside.

Around to the backside of the case and we have the normal host of features we would hope to see. There is of course room for a nice 120mm exhaust fan which also comes with the fan pre-installed, 2x holes for water cooling tubes, 7x PCI Expansion bays and lastly the 2x big cutouts, 1 for the PSU and 1 for the motherboard.

On to the bottom of the case and we are greeted with 2x separate dust filters to help keep the internals nice and clean as well as 4x feet to help keep the case off of the ground and allow the air to flow freely.
