Gaming chassis manufacturer BitFenix today unleashed the latest editions of its highly popular Colossus series in the form of Venom and Window full tower PC chassis. According to the manufacturer, the new chassis bring even more excitement and class to the already award winning Colossus series.

The Colossus Venom Edition brings to life the green LED-lit chassis that BitFenix demoed at Gamescom 2010 and which drew a lot of attention at the event. While the chassis design is the same as the original Colossus, users are now offered a choice between green and red lighting, which changes at the push of a button. With the new look, Colossus Venom is now an ominous sight, particularly during late night gaming sessions.

The Colossus Window on the other hand is a freshly different enthusiast PC chassis that features LED lit side panels. This gives the Colossus an attractive windowed side panel through which gamers can easily see their hardware at work. Once again, users have a choice between three variants – Black, White, and Venom. Each variant comes with its own color-matched 230mm LED fans – two of them – that throw a beautiful glow through the signature windowed side panel.

In terms of features, the Colossus Venom comes with all the original ones present in the Colossus including the proprietary BitFenix SofTouch coating, BitFenix S3 Storage Compartment, and the two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports. The Colossus Window on the other hand has a simplified control panel with basic controls such as power on/off, reset, and LED on/off. Connectivity for the Window is in the form of four USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA port and audio jacks.

"After releasing Colossus, BitFenix fans from around the world offered their own personal suggestions on some new and interesting modifications for the full tower, and Colossus Venom and Colossus Window are the results of that feedback," David Jarlestedt, BitFenix Product Manager said. "With Colossus Venom and Colossus Window, we hope to appeal to an even broader number of users by offering a wider selection of chassis based on a proven design."

Both chassis are expected to become available with retailers in December. While the BitFenix Colossus Venom will carry a price tag of $169, the Window is expected to be priced at $149.

Well I learnt everything from this guy's videos (http://www.youtube.com/user/WestCoastMods) You can only get better at sleeving, so pretty much start with the fans and work your way up ^^


Yeah temps are: CPU @ 4GHz sit at 19*c idle and max at 21*c and the GPU @ 850/1200/1075 sits at around 30*c idle and maxs at 40*c (with all the fans on low settings)
