Amongst the most difficult decisions one has to make when building a new system is without doubt the selection of the ideal PC case. Now for good or bad PC cases have evolved quite a lot and so whereas years ago we had to choose solely based on case size (Mini, Midi and Full towers) and design we now have to choose based on the form factor of our mainboard as well. Currently there are many form factors (official and unofficial) used in both consumer and corporate environments but the main ones most people know are m-ATX, ATX, Flex-ATX, BTX, E-ATX and XL-ATX with the last being the largest of them all. Today we will be amongst the first to take a look at one of the latest and largest PC Cases in the market, the Colossus Window by BitFenix.
Focused on combining superior design with the latest advances in technology, BitFenix creates state-of-the-art computer hardware and peripherals that blur the line between man and machine. Users shouldn't have to adjust themselves to the way their hardware works. So, we strive to put the user in complete control of his hardware, so that it functions as an extension of his will, and not as another variable he has to compensate for. In the heat of battle, the user should not have to worry about the state of his equipment, which is why BitFenix products are engineered to perform under even the most extreme conditions. No matter how taxing the situation, users can rely on the strength of BitFenix products to perform as they are intended. Finally, BitFenix is about performance.

From the same minds behind some of technology’s most venerable products, our goal is to create products that grant the user the utmost control, strength, and performance to complete their computing tasks. We understand that some of the most innovative and novel concepts come from the community itself, which is why we take great steps to listen to the needs of our users and develop optimal ways to integrate their ideas into our products. By working closely with the global community, BitFenix is able to engineer solutions that directly address the needs of our users. Combining a deep understanding of gaming and other high-demand computing applications with superior engineering and design know-how, the BitFenix team is dedicated to creating the go-to computing products and peripherals for those who refuse to quit.
The Colossus Window is the basically the same as the original Colossus Full Tower with a clear side window instead of the regular side panel which according to Bitfenix was implemented after taking into consideration suggestions made by their fans around the globe. BitFenix also announced the Colossus Venom which is also the same as the original Colossus but this version allows you to switch between Red and Green LED colors at will a feature mostly ment for modders. Overall the Colossus Window is an impressive case and is easily amongst the best looking cases we have seen during the past 3 years but as you will also see later on BitFenix did not focus as much in the quality department.
