Peter Donnell / 3 years ago
Two years ago saw Sharkoon release their competitively price Vaya chassis, now they’ve returned to their popular product with a range of new improvements with the release of the new Vaya II, their latest mini ATX PC chassis. Like its predecessor, the Vaya II offers various features at a fair price-performance ratio, something that will always prove popular with system builders.
The new version is available in a limited choice of colours, with black for the regular and gunmetal available for the value version. For the Value edition youll find the interior has a black finish and improved CPU cooler support that will now handle up to 16.5cm tower coolers. Graphics cards with a length of up to 26.5 cm are supported, so even the biggest cards on the market should fit with ease, as too will larger power supplies thanks to 28 cm clearance, the PSU will also benefit from a pre-installed dust filter. For cooling, a blue 120 mm LED fan with a mesh look is already pre-installed. Optionally, an 80 mm or 120 mm fan can be installed in the back panel. In addition, the Vaya II offers installation openings for CPU coolers, three openings for water cooling as well as a cable management system.
The Vaya II also features four 5.25″ drive bays for optical drives and an externally accessible 3.5″ drive bay. Internally, four 3.5″ hard drives can be mounted. Additionally, a 2.5″ SSD/HDD can be installed on the case floor. Both the locking of optical drives and hard drives occur through our quick fasteners.
The Value Version of the Vaya II provides two USB 3.0 (internal 19-pin mainboard connector) as well as two audio ports on the front, an acrylic side panel and available in the colors black and gunmetal for the suggested retail price of just 34.99 euros. In contrast to the Value Version, the Standard Version features USB 2.0 ports, a closed side panel with a fan mounting option and is available in black.
The Sharkoon Vaya II should start appearing for the suggested retail price of 28.99 euros in authorized retailers. The Value Version has a suggested retail price of 34.99 euros which is to a bargain by any standard.
Thank you Sharkoon for providing us with this information.
