    Default Review: Bitfenix Colossus (Venom Edition)

    A new story entry has been added:

    [drupal=635]Review: Bitfenix Colossus (Venom Edition)[/drupal]


    By Colin M. Ormsby (Slaveofconvention)

    A while back, newcomer Bitfenix exploded onto the custom computer scene with an utterly unique chassis, the Colossus. We've already seen what they did with the follow-up to that case, the Survivor in a previous review. Now they're back with a special edition of the Colossus - the Venom Edition. We didn't cover the original Colossus so let's get our hands dirty and get a real close-up look at this new Venom edition. Read on...

    Holy Carp that thing DEFINITELY lives up to it's name! Colossus is almost an understatement.
    I think Hemi was thinking new kitty condo.

    Heh - she can't help herself - I think it might be the warmth from the lamps I use when taking the review photographs - every time I do a review shoot, she appears and has to have a good look.

    it's neat and all, but I'm not a huge fan of the squiggly lights

    The cosmetic styling is definitely love it or hate it - I chose to disregard it because I don't think it's a valid "feature" for the purposes of the review. I personally can't quite make my mind up (which kinda puts the kybosh on the love it or hate it thing heh) but functionally, and from a build quality standpoint, there's almost no faulting it.
