techPowerUp!
26 February 2014
  • Summary: BitFenix entered the market with the original Colossus chassis, which was a massive tower case with elaborate lighting elements built into both side panels. It spawned multiple color variants and windowed versions. After that, the company focused on other case designs.

  • Cons: Overall quality of the front panel is a bit fragile (ODD cover clips and clips holding lighting elements), Tight fit for PSU, Filling all the 2.5" slots could get messy as eveything is pretty tight, A bit of a cable mess inside, No tool-less drive installation, Only 120 mm fan included in the rea...

BitFenix Colossus Full Tower Case Review

ThinkComputers
26 October 2010
  • Summary: Final Thoughts As I said in the introduction we rarely see a new player in the computer case market that really impresses us. I think the last company that did that was NZXT. BitFenix seems to know what they are doing as they are a collaboration of several veterans in both the technology and gaming...
  • Pros: – Awesome design, – The lights!, – Great cooling, – Tons of room inside, – Gamerspecific features, – Price
  • Cons: – The grommets on the cable routing holes came off easily, – Availability

  • Conclusion: BitFenix made a grand debut with the Colossus, if they can keep up this high standard the future looks very rosy for this company. There were some build quality issues with my case due to the fact that it's a pre-production model, but BitFenix listened to all the feedback it received and promised to...

techPowerUp!
31 August 2010
  • Summary: It is always interesting to see how companies choose the labels and names for their products. While some are more or less what you would expect in terms of overall design, the BitFenix Colossus is a perfect fit. The case is incredibly wide, large, bulky and heavy.
  • Pros: Competitive price / performance, Boatload of unique features, Embedded dual color LED system in doors & front, Coated plastic for more resilience, Lockable storage included, Grooves to run cables down the front of the case, Front I/O includes USB 3.0 and attached devices can be secured against th...
  • Cons: Paint job of door not perfect, a few small areas with less paint, Mainboard hole for backplates is a bit too small, Tooling a bit disadvantagous, hinges of door look a bit ugly, Hard drive trays a bit too flexible, Tool-less optical bay system does not hold drives very tight, Heavy - very heavy, ...

BitFenix Colossus Review - o carcasa colosala!

PCMHZ
29 March 2011
  • Conclusion: Nu au mai rămas multe de spus despre carcasa BitFenix Colossus, un adevărat monstru ce poate face faţă oricăror configuraţii, orice tip de placă video single, dual sau triple slot, orice cooler cât de gigantic să fie... toate au avut suficient loc ba chiar ne-a mai lăsat spaţiu de manevră.
  • Pros: Design şi materiale de calitate, Spaţiu intern imens, Posibilităţi de aranjare a cablurilor, Sistem de prindere ferm pentru plăcile video, Sistem de iluminare dinamic, Raport excelent preţ / dotări
  • Cons: Extrem de grea, dificil de mutat, Sertarele pentru HDD-uri sunt cam fragile, Butoanele ascunse necesită ridicarea clapetei compartimentului S3 şi asta deschizând întâi uşa
