Woo! My prodigy (black) looks like it was just delivered biggrin.gif

I'm going to be building a water cooled HTPC in it. I have some interesting ideas for case lighting and aesthetics that I may be throwing into this case as well. Not going to give any hints yet tho wink.gif

Unfortunately it will be a few more days for my hardware to start arriving but still exciting to get the case in smile.gif

Hello everyone! I just wanted to say that I have enjoyed following this thread for quite a while and it was my inspiration to finally build my first very gaming rig. I love the prodigy case and it's subsequent incarnations. With that said, I am sort of saying goodbye as I have just purchased a new case to transplant my rig over to. I will be receiving an Ncase M1 in the mail in a few days.



I still will be subscribed to this thread, as I continue to be surprised and inspired by the content posted on it. Thanks again for having me!!thumb.gif

Had mine for a couple of days now. Love it so far, but HATE HATE HATEEEEEE the placement of the buttons frown.gif

I have to remove my motherboard because the terrible USB 3.0 connector bent the pins on the motherboard.

Probably should have mentioned that I have a Prodigy M.

Considering switching to a Bitfenix Phenom M from my current HAF XB. HAF XB is definitely a more sturdy and well built case but I am looking for something smaller and with a more of a minimalist monolythic appearance.

If I do switch, the two cases I have narrowed it down to are the Phenom M and Silverstone FT03.

Can you folks comment about how my build below will fit into a Phenom M.

ASRock Z77 Extreme4-M
i7 2600k
Corsair h60 Push-Pull
8gb ram (2x4)
Crossfire Sapphire 7870xt
Corsair TX850M
OCZ Vertex 3 MAX IOPS 240GB

If I switch the IO Side panel to the side behind the MoBo, would it be possible to get decent cable management with some zip-ties? I also don't want to choke the life out of my GPUs.

Any thoughts or advice would be appreciated.

Hello, I have a question. And it is this. In buying rehobus recoon BitFenix ​​white, for m-itx prodigy.

Well to the point, the question is whether it endures screw. Since I have removed the frame bracket dvd drive. Ahoramismo have a scythe and is dancing in the bay. But a friend told me that the recoon, you do not screw that is embedded. Is that true?

I'd like to help but I can't understand. Not sure what rehobus recoon means but I get that you're buying a Prodigy mITX. The rest I don't get. Something above remove the bracket and hard drive tray up above and a scythe fan?

Yeah.. I put a lot of thought into which orientation to have my top radiator fans, (assuming the fans are on top); I would like to have them pulling air out of the top when I get the gentle typhoons. But when I flip em' over for "pull" there is a sticker and visible wires so for now I decided to leave them like that, pushing air through the rad and into the case after having determined that it wouldn't affect my temps much if at all.. I've found that the air felt after the rad, inside the case is cool air and not warm "used air" but I still would prefer to have it pulling (who knows I might do push pull since I'll have two extra 120mm's that came with the h220.)

thanks for the feedback smile.gif
