In September 2010, KitGuru reviewed the BitFenix Colossus case and while it showed promise, we didn’t think it was totally ready for prime time release. Today we are looking at their Survivor case, a more modest design which we are sure will appeal to a much wider audience.
The mid tower Survivor is a much neater design at 230 mm x 502 mm x 510 mm (W x D x H), but it inherits the same unique Bitfenix styling. Many will be pleased to hear that the insane lighting system is no longer present and is replaced instead with some really attractive curves on the edges.
