I would like to thank Caseking.de for supplying the review sample.
CaseKing is one of the few companies out there, which will not just sell anything. They only offer hardware that performs well and is of high quality. The shop offers quite a few exclusive parts and devices from all around the world and it is also the official distributor for a long list of well known manufacturers. Their assortment has grown greatly in recent years, while great service and support is still a very important part of the shop philosophy. The website may be in German, but due to great demand, an English version is in the works. We received continous support from CaseKing and they were kind enough to send us the first chassis from Bitfenix - the Colossus. We received a retail, production model of the case.
The company is a newcomer to the market, but consists of a select few with an extensive knowledge in the industry. To give you an idea about the company's fighting stance in the case industry, here a quote from their "About Us" page:
Combining a deep understanding of gaming and other high-demand computing applications with superior engineering and design know-how, the BitFenix team is dedicated to creating the go-to computing products and peripherals for those who refuse to quit.
