sorry everyone, but i wont be posting progess pics. i don't have the time, but i can note a few things for people using the prodigy case.

the 230mm fan will fit with the optical drive bay

the recon fan controller WILL NOT FIT with an H100 in the top, i had to shift the h100 towards the rear so that i only have 2 screws holding the front-most fan to the top of the case and i'm just taping the rear-ward fan to the radiator. to clarify, the h100 and front-ward fan is being held up by 2 screws in the front-ward screw holes for the rear-ward fan. i hope this makes sense.

with the h100 shifted back, a 140mm fan will still fit with 2mms to spare

corsair AX series will fit with a lot of pushing and shoving

SSDs WILL NOT FIT on the psu cage if you intend to also use the double slot HDD cage at the bottom. the screw holes in the bottom of the cage will not line up with the holes on the bottom of the case. i used 3m double sided mounting tape to hold it down.

one more thing... if you notice, i only have 3 fans on the h100 since i also have the optical caddy installed. this kind of works out since the recon fan controller only has 5 channels so, 1 front, 1 rear, 3 h100 = 5 redface.gif

The recon looks like it was made for the Prodigy smile.gif
