Raidmax Viper GX II Introduction:
Raidmax began around 2003 as a supplier of budget-oriented gaming cases. Since then, Raidmax has grown to supply an impressive line of power supplies and even dipped its toes into the liquid All-in-One (AIO) CPU cooler pool with the Cobra 120 and Cobra 240. Meanwhile, its line of gaming cases has expanded to nearly 40, so there are bound to be a few in the mix that catch your eye. Many of these stylish and functional cases are priced well below $100, which leaves a nice chunk of money on the table to put toward the internal hardware of your build.
Raidmax Viper GX II Closer Look:
First, let's take a look at the box. Up front we have a nice graphic of the case with the Viper GX II text and, with the name Viper, of course you have to have a snake on there. The only color on the stock cardboard is a little bit of blue accent on the logo and to highlight the space available for long graphics cards. On the back of the box are illustrations of the various features, such as the external SSD connecting port (I call it a docking bay) and the 415mm of clearance for long graphics cards. The sides of the box are virtually identical, with a graphic of the case and a brief list of the case specs.
The standard heavy Styrofoam end caps keep the case from being damaged. A white fiber bag surrounds the case and protects the finish from any dust or damage. In case there is any confusion as to who made the case, there is a large RAIDMAX logo strategically placed right there on the side of the bag. A nice touch to keep the company name and website on the tip of your tongue.
Now we are ready to pull the packaging off and see what the case looks like. I am really interested in seeing the SSD docking bay.
