BitFenix Colossus Computer Case Review
BitFenix is very much a newcomer to the saturated market of computer cases. They are looking to get their foot in the door and to make a big name for themselves. With the introduction of the Colossus case, it is clear they intend to make a very large impression on the market. This large tower form factor case is almost two full feet tall and deep, so you know it lives up to the name Colossus. Benchmark Reviews has been given the opportunity to take a look at the case as it nears its United States debut. With advertised features such as a security-minded top storage/access panel, unique exterior LED lighting system, and massive cooling capabilities, this case has much promise to be a great debut for BitFenix as a company. Will it live up to the Colossus name, and up to Benchmark Reviews' standards? Read on to find out!
Many people are a firm believer in the mantra "bigger is better". The Colossus subscribes to that idea both in name, and in practice. This case is designed with "big" in mind, and it shows. With the ability to hold up to 7 hard drives, 5 optical bay devices, two 230mm fans, and three 120mm or 140mm fans; you know it is big. With BitFenix being such a new name in the industry, they need a real winner to show they have the stuff to make it. While only a new company, BitFenix is staffed with industry veterans, so they know what works and what does not. The Colossus offers many cosmetic options, as it comes in either all white or all black. The LED lighting also allows for several different configurations, which we will get into detail later on. If you like full tower cases with plenty of cool features, stay tuned to see if the Colossus is the right case for you.
Cases are very cosmetically orientated items, but they also must perform and function to certain standards before they can be considered worth purchasing. Items reviewed by Benchmark Reviews are rated on the following categories: Performance, Appearance, Construction, Functionality, and Value. While some of these categories can tend to be a bit more subjective than others, Benchmark Reviews strives to provide the most professional and unbiased review as possible.
