BitFenix Collosus Case Preview

Colossus Features

The top of the case has the BitFenix S3™, which is a storage compartment to enable you to keep your mice, drives, phone etc safe whilst you're away from your desk or LAN slot. Inside this compartment is also two USB 3.0 ports.

Also amongst the control that BitFenix give you with the Colossus is an included PWM fan controller, enabling full control over your fans without being limited to proprietary fans.

Further enhancing the user experience and in keeping with the BitFenix desire to have every possible feature covered the Colossus is equipped with both internal and external cable management. As you can see the internals have many cable holes available to help keep the inside of your rig as clean as the outside. The front bezel has cable routing that stops the age old problem of optical drives being unable to open thanks to the various leads for peripherals etc., that end up trailing across the front of our systems.

Expandability is a primary concern of modern system builders and those of us who home build. The Colossus has 8 PCI slots for the latest Quad-GPU E-ATX motherboards. Storage is catered for with room for seven 2.5" SSDs or seven 3.5" hard drives.

Cooling capacity is catered for with the ability to mount two 230mm fans, three 140mm or three 120mm fans, and all intakes and exhausts have dust filters.

Finally the motherboard tray has a large CPU cooler cutout to enable switching out the modern coolers that require their own backplate and an almost tool-free design.

To make sure that everything stays where its put BitFenix Lockdown™ is also included to maintain graphics card stability when transporting your system.

The Colossus should be available at the end of this month (August) at around £150. OC3D will have a review as soon as we get our sticky mitts on one.

Definitely starting to like this new forum layout and the software. Isn't IPB freeware? It's pretty damn feature rich for freeware. Just wanted to say good work and everything is coming together VERY nicely. Cheers.

Cheers fraggles :)

I have to agree though. I'm getting MUCH better vibes from IPB than I did from vB4. It seems far less bloated, looks much cleaner and is a gem to work with.

What eq said ^ is correct for the prices. I didnt even bother looking into the free version because you just know its only goign to be a matter of time before you wish you had the full ver :P
