FiercePC Hazer Mini Gaming PC Review


ACC_6276_DxO
FiercePC ship the Hazer Mini Gaming PC in a large outer box. The system itself is protected inside the Bitfenix Colossus M chassis box.
ACC_6280_DxO
The Bitfenix Colossus M chassis is tiny, and quite attractive. It would be an ideal partner for a space restricted living room or bedroom.
ACC_6281_DxO
No FiercePC branding on this case, just the Bitfenix logo, along the bottom of the case.
ACC_6282_DxO
Along the top of the case is a wire mesh vent which can be removed.

The I/O panel is situated on the right side panel. There are two USB 3.0 ports here, alongside a microphone and headphone jack. Underneath is the power and reset button.
ACC_6288_DxO
The front panel of the case opens to expose the DVD rewriter.

The rear of the case highlight the Gigabyte GA-H81M-S2PV motherboard I/O panel, the graphics card connectors, and a large exhaust fan.

  • 1 x PS/2 keyboard port
  • 1 x PS/2 mouse port
  • 1 x D-Sub port
  • 1 x DVI-D port
  • 1 x serial port

The Bitfenix Colossus M Micro ATX Case has the power supply mounted at the front of the case, with a power extender cable being fed in from the rear. It is a difficult case to hide the cables, however without a window panel it isn’t so critical.
ACC_6302_DxO
The cable clutter is partially due to the side panel housing, which contains a PCB board. If you pull open the side panel too far, they will all disconnect. I quite like the exterior of the Bitfenix Colossus, but after looking at the internal build, I do much prefer the AeroCool Dead Silence.

Fierce PC are using a Kingston 60GB Solid State Drive for boot duties. It is obviously a small drive, but thankfully Fierce PC also install a fast Seagate Barracuda 1TB drive. To test the machine today, I installed the STEAM game folder on the mechanical drive. As long as you are careful how you install applications, 60GB is acceptable for a Windows install.

The Corsair VS450 power supply isn’t modular, so there are a lot of cables to hide. They are mainly crammed in behind the motherboard, as shown above.
