Caseking exclusive: BitFenix Colossus Big-Tower - innovative, unique, futuristicBerlin, )
Inspired by the seven world wonders, BitFenix brings the design of PC enclosures to a whole new level with the Colossus. No matter if Monolith Black or Glacier White, the Colossus unifies an aggressive, futuristic look with simple, clean and modern lighting aspects. The surface of the top and front are lined with the BitFenix SofTouch(TM) material, which does not only look great but also protects the surface and gives it a very highquality feel - similar to that of performance gaming mice.
The LED lighting system adorning the front door and side panels provide even lighting for a stunning look, and users can select either red or blue lighting with the touch of a button. The lighting also has three selectable modes, including on, pulse, and off, giving users complete control over the ambiance of their computing environment. The user can adjust the lighting to perfectly fit into its surroundings, choosing between something eyecatching or understated lighting, as the uniquely lit side panels give the Colossus an extraordinary, futuristic look.
But the BitFenix Colossus does not only look stunning, but comes packed with a bevy of features and innovations that make it the most advanced chassis for the gamers and PC enthusiasts. Located at the very top of the chassis is the BitFenix S3(TM) - a combination storage and security system in one. With S3, users can place their mobile phone, hard disk, USB drives, or other valuables in S3 and easily lock them away for safe keeping. S3 also deters wouldbe thieves from stealing your peripherals like mice, keyboards, and headsets while you are away from your desk. Inside S3, users will find two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports ready to connect to an evergrowing ecosystem of USB 3.0 devices.
External devices for the 5.25" slot are hidden behind the futuristic door, which can easily be switched to open to the left or to the right, depending on user preference. A PWM fan controller grants the user total control over all case fans, while the designers from BitFenix have also thought up an easy and extensive internal cable management system. Openings on all major sections in the mainboard tray allow the user to hide any route any cables for a clean and tidy look. Another unique feature of the Colossus is the included BitFenix Lockdown(TM) , which easily keeps heavy graphic cards in their place for carefree transport.
To accommodate the latest gaming hardware, Colossus gives users incredible expandability. Users can install a wealth of hardware with Colossus' 8 PCI slots and enough room to fit up to seven 2.5" SSDs or seven 3.5" hard disks. To keep all of this hardware cool, Colossus can be outfitted with up to two 230mm fans, three 140mm fans, or three 120mm fans for huge cooling potential for all system components. Of course, all air intakes are equipped with dust filters to make clean up quick and easy, and with friendly features like a motherboard CPU cooler cutout on the motherboard tray, speciallydesigned motherboard standoffs, and an almost completely toolfree design, Colossus is a joy to set up.
"With Colossus, we focused on how gamers and PC enthusiasts were interacting with their computers on a daily basis, and crafted a PC chassis that actually helps to enhance their computing experience," says David Jarlestedt, BitFenix Product Manager. "What we've been able to do is create a case that not only looks striking, but delivers novel features that truly benefit the user in terms of security, control, and performance."
The BitFenix Colossus will be available on September 16th 2010 with a retail price of 159.90 € exclusively at www.caseking.de. The special can be found on Caseking under www.caseking.de/bitfenix.
