Just when my memory was failing to bring up if I had ever reviewed a chassis for Raidmax previous to this, I dug deep into the backups of older reviews and found I had in fact reviewed a chassis from them.
Hop in my "way-back machine" with me as it has been almost two years since I reviewed the Skyline from Raidmax and this is likely why Raidmax didn't auto-associate for me at first. Judging from what I just went back and seen with the Skyline, there are lots of things that Raidmax could have updated, upgraded and brought up to speed with today's case offerings. Just from what I can see on the packaging, most of the issues with the older chassis have been reworked and the latest submission has been updated and this chassis comes with a very unique front bezel design and an interior color combination that threw me off my game for a few minutes.
I don't want to give that surprise away just yet, but I will say that the latest mid-tower submission from Raidmax offers a fair amount of features, including native USB 3.0! Looking nothing like the last chassis I reviewed, this submission gets its name from either a car or a snake and since I don't see headlights, I'm putting my money on a snake. The front sort of reminds me of the expanded neck area of a snake ready to strike. The only issue with this theory is I don't see any eyes either, so your guess is as good as mine, I guess. The rest of the chassis has a somewhat dated layout, but it seems to work for this chassis.
The chassis I have been alluding to is the newest mid-tower from Raidmax, the Viper. Getting down to brass tacks right away with this chassis, it's pretty simple in what Raidmax is doing here. They are offering a seriously budget friendly chassis that is modernized to be more buyer friendly in its offerings. This means you are getting a chassis with some styling, enough tool-lees features to keep you happy and a color combination of parts that I have yet to ever see in any chassis design! Enough with the pre-game chatter, let's go over the specifications, so I can show you in full detail what the Viper is all about.
