Product information: Colossus Blue & Red LED Big Tower Case - White

Introducing BitFenix Colossus – the PC chassis for the uncompromising enthusiast. Offering unmatched expandability, security, and cooling all wrapped up in a modern and elegant body, Colossus represents months of intensive research, product development, and meticulous design. The result is a chassis like no other; a chassis that serves as an ideal enclosure for the most colossal gaming rigs.

Ready for the Future
The next generation of USB connectivity is here. Equipped with two USB 3.0 ports, Colossus allows you to connect an ever-growing number of USB 3.0 devices and experience data transfer speeds up to ten times that of USB 2.0. With USB 3.0 already built-in, Colossus can last you several upgrades, further future-proofing your system.

At Your Command
Designed to be the center of your digital domain, Colossus puts you in command with a PWM fan controller and multimode light controls. Tune your fans down for silence or up for extra cooling. Select your desired lighting color or turn them off completely. With Colossus, control is always at your fingertips.

Advanced LED Lighting System
Perhaps the most striking feature of Colossus at first glance is the advanced LED lighting system. Not only is the light evenly distributed for a truly inspired look, but the LED colour is also dual-mode, which means that users can switch between red and blue lighting with the touch of a button.

Unmatched Security with BitFenix S3
Colossus introduces a BitFenix exclusive – S3. S3 is a storage compartment and security system in one. Place your iPhone, hard disk, or other valuables in S3 and lock them away for safe keeping. S3 will even lock down peripherals like USB mice and keyboards plugged into it, and secure everything under lock and key. Simple, safe and secure – that’s BitFenix S3.

Complete Cable Management
Messy cables not only look bad, but they can also restrict airflow in a chassis. That’s why Colossus is designed to manage cables both inside and out. Keep cables from cluttering the inside of the chassis with Colossus' strategically-placed cable holes. Prevent cables from getting caught in opening optical drives with the unique cable-holding front bezel.

Epic Expandability
Colossus gives you the space to build your own supercomputer. Capable of accommodating eight PCI express devices and seven 2.5" SSDs or seven 3.5" hard disk drives, Colossus is ready for multiple upgrades – perfect for a rig of epic proportions.

Massive Cooling
When the action heats up, your system needs to keep its cool. Colossus can be outfitted with up to two 230mm fans, three 140mm fans, or three 120mm fans, meaning huge cooling potential for all system components.

Easy Installation
Big doesn't have to mean unwieldy. Featuring a motherboard CPU cooler cutout on the motherboard tray, specially-designed motherboard standoffs, and an almost completely tool-free design, getting your system up and running with Colossus is a joy. Large yet welcoming, if Colossus reminds you of a friendly giant, we wouldn’t blame you.

What an awesome case!

This case is incredible - very, very solid and beautifully built. The choice of red and blue LED lights is excellent. So too is the LED control. They can be turned on permanently at full brightness, or made to slowly brighten and dim, giving a nice lighting effect to the case.

The front door is magnetic so it holds itself closed securely. The top opens up easily even with the front door closed, and can be locked with the provided keys for added security. The top and front parts of the case have really nicely-thought-out notches to channel cables around the case without clutter or tangling. This can be useful for things such as headphones.

The front panel audio ports accommodate both AC97 and HD audio codecs, which bodes well for any choice of motherboard (if you wish to make use of the front panel audio at all). Two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports are provided inside the top compartment, next to the front panel audio ports, along with a decently-sized storage space. Since this compartment is entirely lockable with the keys provided, it's pretty nice! The fan speed control knob inside the top compartment has connectors to power up to five fans with this speed control, which is excellent for those wanting to control fan speed across the entire computer.

The cooling capacity of the case as-is is decent, but does need some extra fans to get it to optimum cooling. There is a 230mm fan on the front for intake and another on the top for exhaust. This is it though - it would be nice if the case came with an 140mm fan on the rear for exhaust and perhaps another on the bottom for intake. Of course, these can be bought separately and mounted. My only gripe with the 230mm fans provided is that they have no LEDs. I decided to replace them with equivalent BitFenix ones with LEDs, but it would have been nice to have these come with the case. Moreover, there are no printed instructions provided (a PDF manual is downloadable from BitFenix's website) and it is unclear how to attach a 140mm fan to the bottom of the case (even with the PDF manual's help!). Finally, I would have liked wheels to replace the case's feet, like Cooler Master provide with their HAF cases.

In terms of build however, this case is hard to beat. Looks, solid build quality, size and features make it a great choice.

Well built with some good ideas and looks good. First case for me that will fit a 240mm rad with fans at the top and was easy to install.

Well recomended

Even if I didn't want this tower so much, it appeared to be my best choice, so I bought it.

It looks cooler, nicer than from the images. A friend has the black version, but it seems that most of the people prefer this color. It's huge and silent enough.

I'm giving it 4 stars because I would prefer a simpler looking tower with no lights and stuff.
