Product on Review: BitFenix Colossus
Manufacturer and Sponsor: BitFenix
Back on April 12 2010 a new company named BitFenix was formed. Striving to bring truly innovative products to the scene, BitFenix is a very interesting brand - Gigabyte have already shown great interest in the brand. With such strong competition in the market, particularly in the chassis category they are certainly brave.
Today we will be looking at the first product to launch from BitFenix. A full tower case called the Colossus. The Colossus focuses on expandability and cable management by offering a variety of options from within. Available in two colours, I have the white variant today and I will be honest with you - I've been looking forward to getting my hands on the Colossus since its release. It looks very interesting.
Introducing Colossus – the PC chassis for the uncompromising enthusiast. Offering unmatched expandability, security, and cooling all wrapped up in a modern and elegant body, Colossus represents months of intensive research, product development, and meticulous design. The result is a chassis like no other; a chassis that serves as an ideal enclosure for the most colossal gaming rigs.
