Today I will be reviewing the Viper GX II. A few months ago, before I started writing for FunkyKit, I was looking to build a computer for my wife. Nothing to grand. Just an entry level gaming computer. While we were looking for a decent tower, we came across the Viper GX from Raidmax. My wife was in love with the Viper GX! Of course, there had to be a problem with the shipping. Now let me state this, I do not blame Raidmax for the fault of never receiving the tower. The e-tailer showed that the Viper GX was in stock. Yet, after two weeks, we were still waiting on the tower! We had all the parts for the new build, but no chassis to put all the hardware in. Therefore, we decided to decided to go a different route. Needless to say, my wife about wet the bed when I showed her my next project was in fact the Viper GX II, the case we had initially vied for!
The look and design of the Viper GX II is extraordinary! I would say awesome, but every time I say that word I tend to start singing “Everything is awesome” Gosh, I hate that movie. Anyways, back to the GX II. The Raidmax Viper GX II is basically an entry level gaming mid-tower, and is the revamped version of the Viper GX. The most notable difference of the two is that Raidmax decided to go with an orange accent instead of the Viper GX’s green. I am excited to find out if the Viper GX would have been worth the wait!
I would like to thank Raidmax for providing the review sample. This is what Raidmax has to say about themselves on their website:
aidmax was founded in 1988 with the mission of providing the best solutions: specifically, meeting your requirements for innovative designs, excellent performance and quality products. In early 2003, Raidmax was the first to debut the design “Scorpio”: an alien eye shape on its general front panel. At the time, it was the best ever hit in the gaming case business and almost every factory had owned at least one similar design back in China. Two years later, Raidmax released another cutting-edge design, Samurai, and people who had seen the case itself instantly fell in love.
After numerous global feedback, Raidmax is known all over the world. It is said our company is not only a case designer but also the perfect budget keeper. You can simply spend a little but you receive higher quality than you expect. It has been more than 10 years since Raidmax began its work on its unique product lines and market position. The name of Raidmax is synonymous to gaming design and budget cases. In the United States, Raidmax is considered to be the best second tier brand; in Asia, it is said that only Raidmax can offer the budget cases with great designs; in Europe, with almost no brand management, Raidmax’ followers are still showing their loyal support in many ways.
Well lets get to it and see how well the Viper GX II stacks up to the competition!
