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

Rads perform best as intake, so you have the best setup currently. Air outside the case is cooler than air inside the case (always)...you get better cooling from cooler air going thru the rads. Case temps do not really matter as much with water cooling. I generally run all intake with a single exhaust (usually rear fan).

Oh cool, I'll probably put the two Gentle typhoons in place of these stock ones, using one of those as my 120mm exhaust paired with my 200mm in front I think I should have enough airflow and a quiet build. smile.gif !!!!!!!

Yeah, you will thumb.gif

Not sure if you have a fan controller or not, but I'd run the GTs around 7v. They are freakin silent and will still cool quite well. At 12v they have a little bit of a whine

Nope I don't have a fan controller but ill be sure to get one for my b-day which is coming up hehe, they'll cool enough at 7v for 4.5GHZ I7 4770k on the h220?

Well, if you are full loading it, you may want to crank it up to 12v. Normal use, then you would be fine at lower temps. But, that is the beauty of fan controllers, you have that flexibility biggrin.gif

I'm looking at this one, i'm guessing it won't interfere with my rad? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811992005

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.

Any chance we could split this thread into Prodigy and Prodigy M threads? They're two completely different form factor cases. The Prodigy is a Mini-ITX case.

We decided to make one thread quite a while ago rather than split it into 2.
