I'm back in the office now. Slept a bit longer than I thought I did. I would say you should not remove the handles. They're held on by screws, but also on hinges. You'll more likely break it, and we won't cover the warranty if you do.

2. If you were so inspired to fit a 120mm and 240mm rad in there, would the suggested set up be the 240 up top and a 120 on the front, or the 240 in the front and a 120 in the rear?
3. Are the handles/wings removable?

1.Remove all hard drive cages and you'll fit a 230mm/200mm radiator, push pull depending on how thick your radiator is.
2. I would personally go with a 240mm on the top, and a 120mm on the front. I'd keep the hosing near the front of the case, and a 140mm/120mm in the rear.
3. See answered quote above this.

If not, where are people buying their BitFenix cases from?
In the USA, all our retailers will carry them, and yes, Newegg as well.
As for now, you search for your retail stores on your site:
Stock will arrive for the Prodigy in 4-6 weeks.

I didn't even notice that until they pointed it out over on VR-Zone, [VR-Zone] BitFenix announces the Prodigy mini-ITX chassis
. Then went ahead and looked at the gallery on the official product page
Xbournex, can you say whether a white version will be available with a meshed front or not?
I would love to get one if available.
Yes, the front of the white is white. The reason why we didn't go for mesh was because the black behind the mesh makes the case look very dirty in a sense of cleanliness.
We do have face plates available in the near future, but nothing is set in stone yet. We'll announce on our Facebook page when they're available.

Great case was anxious to see its release since i saw it on TTLC youtube channel
We'll have some news on product availability for China mainland sometime in July/August. As of now, we're working on it. You can check
when the time comes. Facebook and Youtube is prohibited in China I believe.

Why they decided to do that for the Wifi on their ITX boards I have no idea. If I ever get around to building an ITX rig, I'm going to use one of the Zotac boards. They have nice antennas mounted on the back like a normal PCI Wifi card would.
It was my idea to put the wifi antenna's there. I first found them really weird, so I laid them down on the top panel. I didn't realize they were magnetic! I decided to stick them in weird places, and in the end, they looked like ears, or really small wings on an airplane or something. Haven't tested them on white Prodigy, but it should look even better.
