Introduction

August of last year I was awe struck by my first submission from BitFenix. The original Colossus may have been referred to as the lava lamp of cases, but I for one was sold on the concept. That version of the chassis had lighting on the front door as well as both sides. This lighting scheme was very unique mixed in along with the Softouch exterior coating and black steel panels. The version of the Colossus I received was the all black version with optional blue or red LED lighting, with the controls hidden in a lockable front storage tray. On top of that, I haven't even gotten to the wire management on the front of the chassis or the tool-free interior.

One thing I really like about BitFenix is they aren't too proud to ask for help or take great ideas and try to implement these into their chassis'. I remember when this idea was sparked, and I was even privy to seeing some of the window design ideas long before now, and they were interested in my input. This along with comments on forums and their dedication to Facebook advertising and input from those who follow, help BitFenix give the customer exactly what they are looking for.

The version of the chassis we are going to be looking at today is the BitFenix Colossus Window. Now this chassis also comes in the white version, as did the original Colossus. The unit we are going to look at is the black version; even here you still have options. You can pick the Venom, or green LEDs with the black exterior and interior. The Colossus Window I was sent is black inside and out, but this one has red LEDs. Along with all the features we saw in the original Colossus we get a very cool windowed side panel, and the lights get stripped off of both door panels. If I have peaked your interest so far, stick around, as I am about to show you the ins and outs of the Colossus Window with optional red LEDs.
