BitFenix Colossus

Cases

Conclusion

The Colossus was not intended to be a LAN case. It dislikes being shifted around on a regular basis, but it’s something that you’d want to show off to your friends. It’s a laser disco that nobody’s invited to.

It’s cooling problems also mean that it doesn’t work amazingly well as a chassis for home gaming, but it might suffice as an overly snazzy case for a simple media PC, but then it’s too big/expensive for what it contains. It feels like the Colossus isn’t trying to be anything in particular and it’s managed to fail at doing anything at all.

From the day I first saw this case I wanted to own it because of how nice it looked, but in prac
ice it was kind of dire. Aesthetically, it’s beautiful and it does a great job of hiding cables, but that’s all.

When it comes down to it, I recommend this case for anyone who has the spare cash to flaunt on something shiny looking, but if you want a case for gaming then you may want to look into something with better cooling. It looks nice and it’s sturdy, but the price and inefficient cooling let it down.
