Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Just like the Colossus I received last year, the Colossus Window keeps the same, rather large size in this full ATX tower chassis. The top and front of the chassis receive the Softouch coating on top of the plastic base material. The panels and interior of the chassis are built from steel and are painted both internally and externally black in this example. Breaking up the black on the front of the chassis are five bars backed by LED lighting, and then gets topped with the "Fenix" logo. On the sides this time around is where things change. The rear panel no longer has the five strips of lighting; neither does the left side of the chassis that gives access to the interior. For the Window version there is obviously the addition of a window so you can peer inside of the case.
This window took a lot of time and thought. Not only did BitFenix go through a lot just to come up with an attractive design for the shape of the window, but there are many other facets to think about. First you have to devise an attractive solution to mounting the window to the steel panel. Then there is 'do we add fan holes, do we add a logo, do we add tinting, will all of this look good?' - The answer to these questions is a resounding yes, and you will be able to see for yourself if this version of the BitFenix Colossus with the window is more your style. On top of the features, tool-free installation, and a more main stream design, you still have options for LEDs. This version, the front panel and the top fan are backed with red LEDs. There is still the white version with blue LEDs, and the Venom which is black with green LEDs.
Looking as I type this, there are just a few places showing stock of any of the versions of the BitFenix Colossus Window. What I am seeing is three or four e-tailers that carry all three versions and a couple of lesser known places, but the pricing is all relatively the same across the board. Places like Xoxide.com and FrozenCPU.com are both listing the chassis at $149.95 and the others are closer to the $155 US dollar mark. Looking back to see what the Colossus is still getting, I see the high end is $180. As it sits, you do lose the lights on the sides, but you gain a large window and still save a bit of money to help with another upgrade.
