XG, a division of MGE, has just launched a new all-aluminum case with a cool snakehead design, hence its name, Viper 2. We took a look at this new case from XG.

This product is available in four colors: red (the one you see on our pictures), silver, blue and black.

Viper 2 is a very light 4-bay all-aluminum ATX case (four 5 “ bays, two 3 “ bay plus four internal 3 “ bay). One of the frontal 3 “ bays is used to hold one mic input, one headphone output, two USB ports and, what is really cool, one FireWire port, a not so common feature. A door protects the bays, as you can see in Figure 2.

This case carries a really cool display that monitors up to three fans, CPU temperature and comes with a clock. It also has a blinking snakehead figure (frankly, what is the point of having this feature?). On the front of the case you will also find two lamps that glow blue when the system is turned on.

In Figure 4, you can see the back of Viper 2. It comes with an aluminum power supply, which helps a lot making this case very light, a place for installing a 120 mm fan (which comes with the case and glows red when the system is turned on) and seven slots for installing expansion boards.
