Conclusion

General   + -
The Bitfenix Colossus M is a well though, Micro ATX, mini ITX case where the interior layout is very well done and one can see from a first glance that the engineers at Bitfenix have thought a lot to make this case practical. We would have loved it if the Colossus M was two centimeter wider. That additional width should be between the right side panel and the motherboard tray, which would give you more options for cable management.  

- Design - Micro ATX and Mini ITX compatibility

 
       
Manufacturing quality / Ergonomics   + -
Overall the build quality is on a very good level. Bitfenix did not make a mistake to go for a super thin side panel to save weight. They use solid metal sheets which gives the case good stiffness and a solid appearance. Furthermore putting the components in place is rather easy. There is overall plenty of flexibility being provided and it's only between motherboard tray and right side panel where we would love to see an additional one or two centimeters of width. This would make cable management much easier.  

- Build quality - Interior Space

- Cable management on the back of the motherboard tray
       
Design   + -
The design is always a rather subjective, but in our opinion the design of the case is unique and well done. The front is simple but elegant at the same time, especially about the mini front door. The multicolor LED is an interesting addition that gives the case look quite unique.

Recommendation   + -
We can recommed the Colossus M to anyone who is looking for a small case which not only offers plenty of space, but can even cope with enthusiast grade hardware. In addition the case offers many cooling solutions, for who loves air and water cooling. On Geizhals.eu we found prices to start at 93.90 Euro, which is reasonable, but not a bargain.
