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...

Double panels give BitFenix more than just noise reduction; they also add a place for LED lighting. The light controller allows users to select soft red or gentle blue, slow pulsating or constant brightness, and of course...

What do you do when you have a winning solution that's not dependent on Tiger Blood? You bank on it. That's why BitFenix has come out with two variations of its Colossus PC chassis, one of which, the Colossus Window, is now ready to prove...

The word colossus simply means big and that is just what the Colossus Window from BitFenix is……BIG. BitFenix designed the case to be able to handle whatever it was anyone would throw in a build and have an easy time doing it. The Colossus...

Unlike the previously reviewed case by BitFenix the Survivor Core the Colossus Window is literally huge and so that alone for me is a plus. However i don't know why BitFenix did not add XL-ATX compatibility with their case, i mean it has the...

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...

We must say we were pleasantly surprised with what is BitFenix’s first case. Sometimes success is dictated by the first product, and if that’s any measure of quality then BitFenix is looking at a bright future. Colossus is a beautiful...

If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times... it takes a lot to impress me. Computer cases have made a wicked transformation over the years and there seems to be a few staples for me when it comes to my top picks. My main rig runs out...

The BitFenix Colossus looks like a formidable gaming case, and anyone in the market for a chassis capable of building a rig to be reckoned with should sit up and take notice. There's a lot of competition in the market for the best gaming PC cases,...

Considering the background of some employees at BitFenix we had high hopes for the Colossus and for the most part the product delivers. The overall build level is excellent with the partial rubber coating adding a real feel of quality. This is backed...

The Colossus was not intended to be a LAN case. It dislikes being shifted around on a regular basis, but it's something that you'd want to show off to your friends. It's a laser disco that nobody's invited to. It's cooling problems...

The contruction of the case is very high quality and it offers a lot of standard features for higher-end PC cases. However, I felt the external, front-panel USB cable runs could use a lot of improvement as you had to run the cables in between the...

After reviewing the exterior, interior, and installing a mid-range gaming system into the Colossus, I'd have to say that BitFenix has a real winner on their hands with this massive E-ATX case. The case's depth and original features moves away...

The Performance of the Colossus is great. The fans perform very well, and are practically silent. I have had no issues with temperatures at all, and I have not had any trouble with dust in my case. The front I/O panel performs as it should. The only...

As I said in the introduction we rarely see a new player in the computer case market that really impresses us. I think the last company that did that was NZXT. BitFenix seems to know what they are doing as they are a collaboration of several veterans...

It’s always interesting to see a new company launched and have an opportunity to have a close look at their products. Bitfenix, in launching the Colossus as their first product have incorporated a number of unique features that deserve to attract...

It goes without saying, for the first product from a newly established company the Colossus is a phenomenal achievement. BitFenix have a philosophy of bringing new and innovative products to the market, and in the Colossus they have certainly done...

In all, BitFenix's first case is a solidly built and sturdy case, but is a little on the heavy side. The Colossus should do rather well for anyone but the LAN going crowd....

BitFenix made a grand debut with the Colossus, if they can keep up this high standard the future looks very rosy for this company. There were some build quality issues with my case due to the fact that it's a pre-production model, but BitFenix...
