Bitfenix sent us a Micro-ATX version of their Colossus case. Seeing that mATX and miniITX cases are designed y to accommodate as many hardware components with as little space as possible, I am curious to know how good this case really is! This is the first smaller-than-ATX case that I am reviewing, so I curious to know how good these case designs really are!! It’s not really a secret that I am a fan of inverted motherboard case design, especially with low-cost case like BitFenix Outlaw.
Like many brands, Bitfenix has a straight-forward packaging- logo and case name at the front, features mentioned in the rear and the specifications on the side.
The unit that I received was with a torn box and couple of cartons from another case filled in. But despite that there is not damage to the case, aside from the slightly bent PCIe cover.
