When you look at the Bitfenix Colossus Venom Edition case the first time, it seems a bit “geekish” and “alienware” like. The frontside has five white stripes on it which will glow in red or green when you power on your machine. There’s also a bitfenix logo which will also glow. The case has a “rubberish” coating on its front panel and top. Along the sidepanel you’ll see five white stripes which will glow when the machine is powered.

There’s a small box on top of the case. Underneath the lid we find power and reset buttons. There’s also on/off switch for lights and a button for changing the color of the lights in the case. In the middle there’s a fan controller. There are four small gaps in the front section of the box which are meant for your headphones and microphone cords. Headphones and microphone connectors are located in the left hand side of the box along with two USB2 connectors. Two USB3 connectors are located in the backwall.
