Colossus Window, a brand new option for users who want to let the world see the hardware they're running. Users can choose between three color options, including Black/Red, Black/Green, or White/Blue to perfectly match their computing environment. Featuring a newly-designed windowed side panel, and two color-matched 230mm LED fans and the same modern and elegant styling, Colossus Window is a fresh twist to the ultimate enthusiast PC chassis.

  • newegg BitFenix SofTouch Surface Treatment Colossus comes coated with signature BitFenix SofTouch. This exclusive surface treatment not only looks fantastic, but also lends a one-of-a-kind soft feel to the chassis itself. BitFenix SofTouch also helps resist fingerprints and stains, preserving the sleek look of your BitFenix chassis. Feel the BitFenix difference with SofTouch.
  • newegg Newly-Designed Windowed Side Panel Angled to perfectly match the silhouette of Colossus Window, the windowed side panel lets you bring your installed hardware into the spotlight for the world to see. What's more, up to two additional 120mm fans can be installed on the side panel for added cooling.
  • newegg Massive Cooling When the action heats up, your system needs to keep its cool. Colossus Window can be outfitted with up to two 230mm fans, three 140mm fans, or five 120mm fans, meaning huge cooling potential for all system components. The two 230mm LED Fans come pre-installed to keep everything frosty cool. The LED colors are color-matched to perfectly complement your Colossus Window and highlight the hardware within.
  • newegg Unmatched Security with BitFenix S3 Colossus Window comes with BitFenix S3 - 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.
  • newegg Epic Expandability Colossus Window 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 Window is ready for multiple upgrades - perfect for a rig of epic proportions. The installation is extremely easy thanks to an almost completely tool-free design.
  • newegg Complete Cable Management Messy cables not only look bad, but they can also restrict airflow in a chassis. That's why Colossus Window is designed to manage cables both inside and out. Keep cables from cluttering the inside of the chassis with Colossus Window's strategically-placed cable holes. Prevent cables from getting caught in opening optical drives with the unique cable-holding front bezel.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh.

Pros: A lot of space for cable management. Looks very nice and is LARGE! Almost perfect in my opinion except for one thing...

Cons: The lights on the front tower cover started out dim and then quit working all together within a week. Lame.

Other Thoughts: Had the other version of this tower without the side window. All the lights worked on it really good but when taking the side panels off i realized that they weigh a metric ton!! so it took one slip of my grip for it to fall less than a foot and rip the short power cable out of the power connector. That is my fault i know but still...do the side panels really need to have that weight to house some paper thin lights?!?!? The wife wanted the same type of tower but with a side window to show off the eye candy hardware i put together for her so i bought this version of the tower from the same company....uh..ya there wont be a third purchase from this company. I get to wear the donkey hat for buying twice from them..LEARN FROM MY MISTAKE!!!!

3 out of 5 eggsFront Panel

Pros: Looks sick, lots of places to input LEDs and fans, also the pure space inside is perfect to work with

Cons: My biggest con is that the front panel LEDs have seemed to stop working after the first few weeks. It's really sad, I know I'm not the only one. I had to take it off because it annoyed me so much. Cant find anywhere on their site that says they can replace this specific part. Would make my life a lot easier. Also, the stock screws they send you are horrible.

Other Thoughts: Green is my favorite color.

2 out of 5 eggsColossus Window Venom

Pros: Good solid construction on frame. Includes 2 230mm fans with leds. The best feature about this case to me was the wire routing, made installation of components very quick and easy. Includes 4 additional fan mounts, all of which are fairly easy to clean. Unique door design.

Cons: The main issues I had when i bought this is the non existent customer service and poor construction of the led system, which is a big reason why i chose this case. After I set up my new system in this case all worked well for about a week. Suddenly the bottom few lines on the door had no lights but top did. Contacted their customer service and i assume no one speaks English as i received an automated response to re check polarities on connections.(Its molded plastic that only fits one way..) Did that anyway (as the rest of the lights on the door began to fail) and on my next 2 emails they told me to repeat what they said in first email and then that i must have all of my wires jumbled up in the door and smash them when I close it.... Worst
customer service I've ever dealt with. And I'm fairly confident whoever i spoke with did not speak English and could not understand the issue. I ended up forking out more money and just fixed the lights myself and its worked great for several months now. Also the included LEDs will not be enough light for you to see your components without aftermarket lighting.

Other Thoughts: Buy it for the design, and wire routing.
Don't expect anything from customer support, and have a backup plan for leds.

2 out of 5 eggsBad LEDs

Pros: Very nice case design, with good cable management.

Cons: Bad LEDs in the front panel. First they all worked, then after a few days, two of the LEDs stopped working, and as of now, all of the LEDs are inoperational.

Other Thoughts: Will RMA and purchase a different case.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case

Pros: -Large size provides plenty of room for expansion
-Plenty of attachment points for fans and radiators, but has decent airflow out of the box.
-Simple but cool design that looks way better than most

Cons: This isn't really going to be an issue for most people, I'd assume, but if you intend on mounting a radiator for a liquid cooling system on the vent on the top of the case, you first need to remove the plastic paneling to get to the screws. Pulling that panel off can really feel like you are going to break it, so use caution.

Other Thoughts: Every time somebody comes into my room, a comment is always made about how awesome the case looks.

3 out of 5 eggsLack of Quality

Pros: -HUGE! You can fit everything you need in here.
-Looks cool.
-Has lots of cable management room.
-The softouch surface is nice.
-USB 3.0 connects directly to the motherboard rather than being a pass-through like some cases which gives more USB outlets to your system.

Cons: -No formal guide/manual for the case, only a 'quick-start' guide made of pictures
-The top part and front of the unit are difficult to remove without feeling as though you are going to break something (this had to be done to install my CPU cooler and to add disk/optical drives to the computer).
-The front door is held shut via magnets that were hot-glued to the front panel. However putting strong magnets next to metal and only using excessive amounts of hot glue to secure them resulted in the magnets coming off my front panel and getting stuck to the tower itself. When i pulled them off they chipped because they were so low quality. I re-attached them to the front panel via superglue to keep them in place. Also other wires in the case are held in place only by hot glue.
-The rubber gromits which reside in the holes for cable management also seem to be made of poor material. They constantly popped out as I was sliding cables through them and one I received wasn't even cut all the way. I had to pull out my pocket knife and finish the job which should have been done before my case left the factory.
-The biggest infraction for this case though is the poor quality of the drive bays. They are all made of plastic and very flimsy. The quick-start guide says you should be able to easily lock in optical drives via their smart click system or something but I found the things to be utterly useless and actually got in my way more than anything. I secured my optical drive with screws and it was just fine.

Other Thoughts: Colossus is the right word for this case. It is HUGE. And the look/feel of the case is fairly nice. But for such an expensive case, I personally feel that the quality of components was not up to par. Particularly dealing with the use of hot glue and plastic drive bays.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but not perfect

Pros: Well for starters this case is HUGE! No problem fitting anything in this case. Love the soft plastic that is used. LEDs are sick and gotta love the cable management that they put into the door.

Cons: Nothing that would make me regret this purchase but.... the little plastic drive bays seem a little flimsy to me. The controls that are in the hidden panel on the top seem a bit cheap also. Finally really wished they would have included one more fan at least (for rear exhaust). Like I said nothing huge just a few minor complaints.

Other Thoughts: Overall great case and I do love it. I freaked out when I first got it because I though they forgot to give me the keys to the top panel. Found them after a while. Love putting the LEDs on pulse and just watching it breath in the dark lol. Much Love.
