BitFenix Colossus computer case prototype exclusive hands-on

New company promising big things for gamers

BitFenix made the airwaves a little while ago with its launch and entry into the market highlighting itself as a high-end gaming hardware manufacturer. The team is built around well known tech people with plenty of experience in the industry from the likes of such well known past and present companies such as ABIT and CM Storm. The creation of the company is an interesting story, but best left for another time.

Yesterday we headed out to the brand spanking new BitFenix office and got an exclusive hands-on video preview of their upcoming and really impressive Colossus full tower computer case. The product was introduced to us by Swedish chap David who is the product manager and it is important to keep in mind that this particularly sample only just arrived in from the China factory and it is a prototype and not yet finished - i.e. it will go through some changes before the final retail version ships sometime in September with a very estimated street price of around 170 USD.

The Colossus is a very hip and new breed of computer case that will come in either white or black. It is a very important product for BitFenix since it is their very first product that will go on the market; the team does not intend on rushing it and will take as long as it needs to perfect it before it goes on sale.

Followed by cases, BitFenix will also begin selling power supplies, mice and keyboards possibly by the end of this year. Watch our video above for a solid and close-up hands-on with the Colossus. BitFenix folk - remember to send me one when they are shipping!
