Thanks!

The weight won't "hurt" the motherboard and it is one of the most quiet coolers around. The H100 is very loud, especially at max speeds, but beats just about any of the giant aircoolers. You can always change the fans on the H100, but you're looking at spending even more.

The NH-D14 fits perfectly fine (I have pictures if you look a few pages back --- or just one right above you. It's pretty quiet. I'm currently using the BitFenix stock 120mm fans on the top as I never got the chance to purchase gentle typhoons lol. But other than that you should be okay.

Just curious, is it necessary to buy those alchemy cables or is it just to look better? I think the cables made your build look very clean and nice! What size alchemy cables did you get?

Is the notctua heatsink suppose to touch the back stock fan that came with the prodigy? In just attached my motherboard with the noctua on it to the chasis, and the heatsink part is touching the stock fan o.o

Based on the pictures by radarjam, you can see that you could fit an NH-D14 with 2x120mm fan on the top and even 140mm fan on the rear exhaust without problem or modding. What I need to know is that, is it still possible to install an ODD (oem desktop size) with the specs just like radarjam has? I know you you should remove first the 1x120mm top fan near the front to make a room for ODD. Would this be possible?

hey just wondering, with the NH-D14 in (and the 2 fans facing the opposite way like you have it), can you fit the 5.25 drive bay in? If not, can you please measure the depth from the front of the case (the 5.25" panel) to the closest fan for me? Thanks!

Nice build! I've been wanting to pick up a Prodigy for awhile to do a mATX w/c'd build though I'm already taking up much of the living room with my current MountainMods build! Polar opposites!
Really good work!thumb.gif

Planning a nearly incidental build. I guess you are getting so many D14 questions because Noctua says this:

I wonder if a little plasti-dip over the clips is a good idea. It would seem that this is the best cooler available without a open loop setup like a RX240, but then you get in to the big $$$

Hell, it will be a while before I save up and get a new GPU anyway rolleyes.gif

I have been watercooling for about 3-4 years and I feel like it just isn't worth the headache for that extra few 100ths of a GHz. (Thats just my opinion though and not meant to chip anyone's egos.)
So it would seem you are a bit of pioneer on this build. Well based off of you proof that it works I think I'm going to pull the trigger.

Hey!

I building my own Prodigy rig right now and have quite some trouble with the cable management.

How do these Bitfenix Alchemy Cables work exactly? Where do you put the implemented PSU cables to attach the extension cables? I think the exit-slots for the cables in the PSU cage is just terrible.

Also, is the 800W PSU necessary for your build? I got similar components (except a different cooler till now) and am wondering if a 650W PSU could also handle the power if I put your cooler in.

I hope you can help me!

Greetings from Germany,
zuup
