I’ve been reviewing computer hardware for quite some time now and it is safe to say I’ve seen my fair share of cases. When it comes to purchasing a case most people go with the big players; Thermaltake, Antec, Cooler Master etc. It is not often we have a new company come into the case market and impress us. Well today is that day and BitFenix is the company. The case in question is their Colossus Full Tower case, which features a very unique lighting design, USB 3.0 ports, great cooling, tons of room inside and much more. Read on to check out this truly unique case.
