BitFenix Colossus Full Tower PC Case Review

Today we look at the first offering from a new company named BitFenix. Today we will be looking at their flagship case called Colossus. So join us as we look at what BitFenix is offering up to the enthusiast community and if their case can live up to the big name of Colossus.

Being a pre-production first offering from a new company, I was impressed with the Colossus and BitFenix. The Colossus's design and build is nice, solid, and laid out well. I really like the SofTouch coating; it has a very different look and feel to it. Normally LED lighting is not my thing, but the Colossus has an interesting look to it, almost TRON like. The ability to shut the lighting off is a massive plus as sometimes you just don't want extra light in a room, and the Colossus will light up a small room.

I do know someone who would love this case, my 9 year old nephew. Anyone over the age of 15, probably not so much.

Not sure about that, I have had more than one "older" (30+) guys think its cool, also had some look at it and go "ok, that's neat, can you turn it off" LOL

First case I ever cut into I put a green cathode in it. I think I turned it on twice before I got sick of it. Everyone has their own tastes.

Interesting case. I don't know if I like it though. Nice to see the 8th expansion slot. :)
