The Ninja 2 is available in three color combinations: silver with a black face, blue with a silver face and black with a silver face.
The above specifications (from the XG website) are a bit misleading in a few instances. First of, the Ninja 2 has only two fan slots. The included 80mm LED fan occupies the front fan slot. The rear slot will accommodate an 80 or 92mm fan. Second, the case is lighter than listed at 6 Kg (a little over 13 pounds.) Finally, and I find it odd that this feature is not mentioned anywhere, the Ninja 2 has a removable motherboard tray; a nice feature that can make working in a case much easier.
Specifications for the PSU can be seen in the online manual HERE and include active PFC.
The case arrived from XG double-boxed. The plain white shipping carton was removed to reveal a sturdy and rather classy looking cardboard box.
The rear and end panels of the box are used to illustrate some of the features of the chassis. The top incorporates a plastic carry handle.
The Ninja 2 itself is encased in a plastic bag and sandwiched between two foam blocks. The case arrived undamaged, due in no small part to this packaging system.
Like most cases with an included PSU, the Ninja 2 comes with a bag of installation hardware and a power cord. Unlike most budget cases, it also comes with a large format and detailed installation manual.
