Arctic White Bitfenix Prodigy Build - Page 3

post #21 of 30
I'd also like to reiterate the same questions:

I'm hoping to use the 212 EVO on either this OP's Asus board or the equivalent ASRock board (the ASRock is looking less and less likely). I've heard that there's issues attaching the backplate without damaging or crushing other components.

How did you get around this? I'm considering giving it a miss and shelling out more $$ for an H80 as this seems like a lot of hassle.

Very nice props to having a killer system..
Water cooling is a must on this could do an h80 with colored tubes and see about changing out the graphics for a water block on there
I bet you could do it in that case have a pump resivoir for the flu and an h80 for CPU only that would yes be ridiculous but worth it I think yes wink.gif
You also beat me to the punch of micro computer with that sexy mother board..
Now need the money for this system to do wild things

Oh is there by chance any other companies you'd recommend for cases that maybe you have personally built with or anything?

How did you get the front fan to work when there are only two pins for 1 chasis fan and one cpu cooler fan? I just built my prodigy and ran into this problem. Also, how do you like the bitfenix spectre pro fans. are they noisy or quiet? good airflow? THANKS! smile.gif

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.)

Which fans are you using for the front and top intake fans? I was thinking about replacing the fans that came with the case with the bitfenix spectre pro led 200mm (for front) and 120mm (for back).

How did you handle the backplate of the Evo 212 hitting things on the p8z77-i? The backplate on mine hits what look like some delicate pieces on the back of the mobo.

Considering this mobo and cooler as well, for that portion of the pcb components that the backplate covers, would it be practical to use a rubber washer to prevent the backplate from crushing the components?

Also curious about the backplate. Considering putting a Hyper 212 EVO on here, but unless the backplate issue can be resolved, it's not worth the risk.

I saw in another thread somewhere that someone used #6 nylon washers to raise the backplate up off the mobo on all 4 corners. They never posted back to say whether there was clearance between the bracket and the bottom of the mobo standoffs, but maybe they'll get back to the thread some day....

Thank you so much for posting that build. Now I know that low profile RAM or value RAM can be used with a 212 Evo without moving the fan slightly upwards.

Lovely, exactly what I am looking to do with a Core I5 as a Media PC/Server.

Question if I can, I am seeing lots of builds with this case where people are mounting the psu with the fan upwards, i.e so its more or less pressed against the underside of the motherboard tray ? am I being stupid thinking it should be the other way round in this case so the fan can vent out the bottom mesh instead ?
