The BitFenix Colossus is a hulk of a case, tipping the scales at 34.3lbs (15.6kg) - and that's before you stuff any hardware inside. Living up to its name, much of that weight is attributed to the case's massive dimensions of 582mm long, 558mm tall and 245mm. Such a body grants the Colossus access to seemingly all high-end consumer hardware, including EATX motherboards.

At Rs. 11250 it is slightly overpriced considering the absence of a rear fan which is kind of expected in such cabinets. This is an ideal cabinet for LAN party enthusiasts. The option to change the LED light colours, fan speed and provision for...

Considering that your PC case is the bit that everybody sees, it's remarkable that so few enthusiasts actually care about how their shrine to the digital gods looks. Not so owners of the colossal Colossus - anybody who sees this case will know...
