Bitfenix Jumps into the Scene with Two ATX Cases

PC case maker Bitfenix launched itself amidst quite some talk from the media. At the Computex event, it showed off two of its first products, the Colossus and Survivor. The Colossus is an ATX full-tower that marks a return to silvery-white On its exterior it sports wavy grooves that light up. The Front panel opens up as a door to reveal the five 5.25" drive bays, and front air-intakes. Common utilities such as front panel audio, USB and eSATA ports are right above the drive bays, though an additional set of USB ports are present in its top compartment. The top-compartment is a chamber that has a combi-lock protected lid. It has two USB ports inside, and can securely hold (and charge) devices such as smartphones, PMPs, and pocket-hard drives, which is of nice use in LAN parties. Grooves in the front-panel channel cables connected to front ports, and well as inside the secure chamber.

Internally the Colossus features an all-white interior, with seven 3.5"/2.5" drive bays, a motherboard tray that can hold EATX, ATX, m-ATX motherboards, and has 8 expansion bays, so a graphics card seated in the 7th expansion slot of a motherboard has room for its double-slot cooler. Ventilation includes front and top 140 mm fans, and a rear 120 mm fan, with four holes for water tubing. The next case, Survivor, is an all-black ATX mid-tower that has a strong frame, and an exterior that makes use of rubber and polycarbonate. The Rubber layers serve two purposes: noise dampening, and absorbing shocks in rough-handling during transportation. It has just three 5.25" drive bays, six 3.5/2.5" bays, and a front-panel located on the top, under a flap, with four USB, eSATA, and audio connectors.

The survivor has perforated metal sheets fabricating both its side panels. Active ventilation includes front and top 140 mm fans, rear 120 mm, and holes for water tubing. Bitfenix will introduce these cases to the market soon.

The colossus looks kind of cheap and plasticy. Hopefully the final version will look better.

I have to admit that I actually like that white case. With decent lighting it might actually look pretty cool

The techpowerup watermark is overkill. Tone it down a bit

they left the manual number lock on it -.- they really should have opted for somthing else. it ruins the look of the case.
