How To Write A Good Application Memo

Starting with the build quality of the Colossus Micro-ATX we have a case which is very much in the high end of the spectrum. The main body of the case is very sturdy, the paintwork flawless on our sample and we love the soft touch coating… as we did with the original Colossus. Design wise there is a lot to like about the case too. For example there is plenty of flexibility in terms of the coolers and GPUs which can be installed… including multiple high end cards if we wish. The case easily takes liquid coolers too and there are plenty of drive locations for those who need a bunch of storage.

Would we change anything? Certainly, yes. There are for example a number of areas (such as next to the PSU mount thumbscrew where a little cut-away would allow easier access with a screwdriver. We would also look at adding an area to mount SSDs on the back of the motherboard tray which is a tidier way to have them than hanging “above” the motherboard. There appears to be room for 14cm fans up the top too, so it would have been good to see a mount provided and maybe BitFenix could have added some channels/covers to help us hid wiring. Like so many Micro-ATX cases there is little space to store wires and keep a tidy build here.

In terms of the build process, we had no significant concerns. Maybe the PCIe devices should use screws as standard but past that each component fitted with ease. That said we would lose the use of the 5.25″ bay with some liquid cooling solutions or second GPUs where they are longer models. Really though, the ability to install a decent wattage PSU, R9 or GTX 700 series GPU and Z87/97 motherboard makes for a pretty great mini-system. Especially when we add in multiple SSDs and a high end CPU, liquid cooled. Temperatures in that sort of config were within our expectations which was great. Also worth of note are that the fans BitFenix use are low noise models. Some of the quietest stock fans around in fact.

At £82.99 with some really great LED styling, plenty of flexibility and some high end build quality the BitFenix Colossus Micro-ATX wins our recommended award.
