The Build and Finished Product
For instance, if there had been an image of the front panel removal, I might have seen that the front I/O was connected to the plastic bezel before I wired the chassis for the build. I don't know why I add the ODD last, but I am going to have to start changing my routine it seems.
I managed to wiggle the front panel enough to work in the DVD drive. It doesn't really matter much how the drive looks in here, as it will be covered by the door panel most of the time. It's just too bad case manufacturers make doors that don't open away from you on cases with windows in them.
Like I said; what DVD drive? Once the door is shut and the magnetic latches click together, the front of the chassis regains its original looks hiding the drives behind the flat black panel with the Raidmax name at the top of it.
The build went pretty well even though most of the wiring does have to stay inside of the main area from the PSU to the various components. The case won't accept long video cards, especially ones with power plugs at the end of the cards rather than the sides. The only thing I really found lacking was a secure place for my SSD, but I managed it with some Velcro in the floor of the 5.25" bays.
I wasn't really fond of the orange on black exterior with the light blue on black interior, but I do like the way the expansion slot covers make the three stripes around the two GPUs. Just something that looked cool to me is all.
As you can see, the area behind the tray is not capable of even running the 8-pin EPS back here. I did use the area next to the hard drive bays to the best of my ability to hide whatever wiring I could get into some sort of managed condition.
Powering up the Viper I first noticed the subtle blue glow that comes out of the venting in the Vipers neck. While I usually don't gravitate to cases with lots of LEDs, I like the effect this puts off with the Viper.
I changed the fan on my Enermax cooler to match the theme of this build. Through the bronzed window you can see it glowing above the blue LED fan they have mounted in the window to add cool air to the sides of the GPUs.
This is going to be the last look at the Raidmax Viper in all of its powered up and bled LED lit glory. I just thought you might want to see it all together so you have this image in your head as I give the Viper its final once over in the final thoughts on the next page.
