    That's something different! The case is a tooling sample still, not final. The LEDs can be turned off or set to "breathe" gently on and off. Available in white and black, inside and out.

    Ive got loads more pics and possssssssssibly a video coming. If I can get the software working.

    I think the black case would look a lot nicer especially with a pulsing red led.

    Honestly, I prefer the white with blue because the whole design is so different it fits that difference. Red and black is done to death :p but BitFenix do expect to sell more black ;)

    I would pounce on that white/blue beauty.

    What's the black case next to it? :naughty:

    Hey Rich, could you do me a huuuuuge favor and ask them if they have plans for India? Considering CM is pretty much the only case manufacturer with a real presence there and the BitFenix guys (some?) are ex-CM, I'd like to know if they'll be giving the subcontinent any love.

    They don't really have a stand at Computex. You can do everything else! :p

    stonedsurd - depends on their sales relationships and who they know. If you know a distributor or online store willing to stock it I can put them in touch.

    And the one next to it, you'll have to wait and see the article :D:D:D

    For distributor/retailer, who should contact whom? I'll have a word with a few folks and let you know in a day or two.

    Interesting looking case. Don't much care for the red on white for some reason, but the blue looks good.

    I think it is partly because the color is so light/faded looking... if it was a little stronger, the red might look good.

    When do we get some pics of the interior?

    Well, it's not too fugly for a first attempt. Certainly looks way more attractive than Coolermaster's latest atrocity (the HAF X, if anyone would be in doubt). Young BitFenix shows much promise... :)

    What form factor is it?
    It looks like a mid-tower or full tower but I'm not quite sure.

    I'd be interested to know its cooling capability's ect.. Getting a new case soon and the CM 690 II Advanced still top of my list. Does look cool though.

    Judging by its name 'Colossus', I'd imagine its not small ;)

    Does the lighting change colour? A strong green could look very good... with either black or white.

    Although, i agree it looks a bit cheap. hopefully they'll sort out the wonky joins in the final. Definitely looks promising for BitFenix though :)

    And Bindi, when's the article? That smaller case looks interesting.
