Specifications, Availability and Pricing
On the outside amongst all of the steel in the frame and panels, along with the mix of ABS plastic and steel mesh inserts, the Mars VA-2 mid-tower chassis looks pretty darn good. The front is all mesh running down the middle of the chassis with the intake at the bottom and four 5.25" bays covers at the top. Separating the two is a wide stripe of ABS plastic that houses the front I/O panel. The bezel is a bit taller than the steel on the chassis, but it takes a gentle bend at the front over the top and angles down to meet the steel top of the chassis. You will also see two mesh covered holes at the top of the chassis for optional fans. The left side of the chassis offers an all mesh "window" and unlike the T-Rex, you cannot add additional fans in this one. As for the right panel, it's flat and offers only a finger hold at the back to slide the panel off the chassis.
The inside of the chassis is painted black to match the exterior and also keep with the red on black theme of all the GameTiger cases. In the front you get four 5.25" bays with spring loaded tool-less clips and the bottom most bay has a 5.25" to 3.5" drive conversion tray in it. As for storage, there is no offering for an SSD location, but there are five 3.5" bays for mechanical drives. In front of the drive cages you will locate one 120mm fan with red LEDs in it, also keeping with the theme. The motherboard tray has a few holes for management and will allow for ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. The top of the chassis has room for a pair of 120mm fans, but as shipped only has dust filters clipped in. Speaking of dust filters, there is one in the floor as well. It is on the inside strangely, but it covers the PSU intake and a vented spot that offers no fan mounting options. At the back of the chassis you have the second installed 120mm fan without LEDs placed above seven expansion slots with replaceable covers and some really different clips to hold the cards in securely.
Just like with the other two submissions from GameTiger, there is no availability at this time in the USA, but I would have to assume if they are going to pay to have three cases sent from China to my door, specifically for the English speaking market, I would assume a container or two of these cases is about to be packed and shipped to our borders.
With everything you are about to see in the Mars VA-2 chassis and since it is the middle man of the three, it has to be somewhere between the $100 and $50 of the other two. Proving that theory, GameTiger has informed me that the MSRP of this chassis is set at $79 and is priced really well against the competition and still offers one more thing I haven't seen before.
