    BitFenix may be a new brand but their first product has landed. The Colossus case is so large that you simply cannot miss it. It is packed to the rim with new and unique features, which make you wonder what we did without them before. We take an in-depth look at the retail version of this massive EATX case that goes for a very affordable 159 Euros.

    Mehh there is just something about that case that looks "fake", and its got that plastic tool-less junk as well. Nice review but ill pass on this case for future builds :toast:

    Some nice features there, but not my kind of case.

    i like it for some odd reason

    but something i wuld love from case reviewers,,....... is to measure the spacing between the mb tray and the back panel in millimeters, so one can get and idea of how much room there is for cable management

    Reminds me Raven.. great idea, but not so well product (too much plastic).

    Yea and this is just.. plain ugly. Perhaps good for ppl without taste, or in love with *bling*.

    I agree.
    If it weren't for the odd design this would be a great case.

    16 kilos are great if nothing will buzz when you turn up ur bass-heavy tunes.

    Good review as always and I think I create a Digg account.

    I would certainly buy this case if it were a bit lighter, it would make things much easier.


    Love the addition of the USB plug.

    PRetty decent looking case. I love those wave lines.

    Gotta give props to DS for saying, and I am paraphrasing here, "ugly looking hinge locks" as a negative. I LOVE IT!
