Introduction

 

It's not every day that we run across a company like BitFenix! Most all of them have broken ties with other manufacturers in the quest to deliver what they think is what the customer actually wants versus what is the best for their bottom end. BitFenix is going on the assumption that if you build it they will come. With just about everything in the world, if you develop something the masses desire, the money end will take care of itself. I have huge respect for those who go against the grain and strive to produce one thing that is awesome over a bunch of products that are OK, but really not worth mentioning or recommending to people.

 

For those of you who haven't heard of BitFenix since Cameron introduced them to us in his video in May along with his early postings since Computex, climb out from under your rocks for a minute or two and prepare for what you are about to see. Cameron has had early access to all the build stages and the early previews, which do shed some light on the chassis we are about to look at. But I can tell you from experience, the videos I have seen just don't do this product justice. You really need to see it in person to get the entire "feel" for the design and implementation of this case.

 

Today we are looking at the long awaited Colossus. I was privileged enough to receive one of two samples to reach the USA. Keep in mind, to do so means I actually received a pre-production sample of the Colossus so that we could be one of the first to showcase the awesomeness of this chassis. There are a few changes that were made to the retail version of the Colossus and I will point out the changes and/or additions as we go along. The changes made are not drastic, but they do improve the overall product which you will receive. I say we just jump right in and see what kind of right cross the Colossus from BitFenix delivers to the competition.
