While the Prodigy is one of few ITX cases good for watercooling, I think doing water instead of air on it doesn't do it justice. Just because the air flow you can get in there is so incredible, possibly the best passthrough case there is, not even just in the ITX range of cases. Besides, you won't get any extra out of an Ivy Bridge in this case with water than with air, as long as you do your air setup right.
I hit the multi wall on my 3570K looooong before hitting even 50% of the thermal cap on air in this case. 1x 200mm intake in the front, 1x 120mm resisted (7v) intake pointing down on the CPU cooler from the top, a CM 120mm tower cooler and exhaust 140mm in the back. My 3570K hit multi wall at 5 Ghz and I dialed it back to 4.92Ghz where it has been stable, my highest recorded temps around the 75C mark, though that is almost never that high. Water is a waste here.
Good job on the case!

I saw the OP's post at BitFenix forums where he said he would get a Recon fan controller in the bay, which has additional fan headers. I imagine he was using adapters to pull directly from the PSU until he got the Recon. (I myself run my exhaust and top intake off the PSU, and I'm not really sure I want a fan controller anymore considering how quiet and cool I am running.)Edited by Franticool - 10/28/12 at 2:03pm
