BitFenix Intros Colossus Venom Edition And Colossus Window PC Cases

When it comes to PC cases, the choices are endless. You could hunt for days and days and not run out of options, but only a few really rise to the top in terms of flexibility and design. BitFenix is hoping to join that elite group with the new Colossus Venom and Windows cases. These are two new variants of the Colossus full-tower PC chassis, and they've definitely got style.

The Colossus Venom Edition was actually just a prototype a few months ago, but after lots of demand from those at Gamescom 2010, the company decided to commercialize it. Colossus Venom Edition uses the same design as the original Colossus, but allows users to select between green or red lighting at the push of a button. This new color choice gives Colossus Venom Edition an ominous new look, perfect for intimidating the competition during late-night gaming sessions. Of course, all the original Colossus features have been retained, such as the proprietary BitFenix SofTouch coating, BitFenix S3 Storage Compartment, and two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports.

The Colossus Window is exactly what you think it is: a PC case with a clear window meant to show off your pretty innards. Eschewing the LED side panels for an attractive windowed side panel, users can let their hardware shine through, all while being enclosed by the distinctive styling of the Colossus design. Users can choose between the Colossus Window's three variants (Black, White and Venom), each coming with two color-matched 230mm LED fans which cast a bright glow through the signature windowed side panel. A simplified control panel provides the basic controls, including power on/off, reset, and LED on/off, and for connectivity, Colossus Window comes with four USB 2.0 ports, one eSATA port and audio jacks.

The Venom Edition will sell for $169, while the Window sells for $149.

The BitFenix Colossus is one of the most celebrated PC chassis of 2010, garnering nearly 40 international positive reviews and awards.
