ADD ME






Need to work on my cable management, but I don't have a lot of patience, so everything ends up getting jammed in there tongue.gif

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

Congrats on your Ncase M1! Aside from the Caselabs Mercury S3, it's really the best case to move to after using a 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'm having trouble understanding as well, but I'm thinking you mean the Bitfenix Recon? Unforunately, the Recon does need to be screwed on to the bracket for the optical slot though you can cut up the bracket like this. You can fit it with 240mm radiators on the top once you do this small mod.

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.

It should fit fine and many people do reverse the I/O panel in order to clean up the cables. I'm more biased towards the Silverstone FT03 as I don't really like the layout of the Prodigy/Phenom M.

Thanks guy. And sorry for my bad language, I'm Spanish. Blame goolge translator .. >
The BitFenix ​​recoon end it and order. And I will tell if it holds without screwing.
A greeting! wink.gif

one of our former club members seems to be selling some parts on ebay here here and here

I have a recon in my main rig and you have to secure it in the 5.25" bay with screws. you may be able to mod the setup to hold without, but typical installation requires the screws for security.

Hey guys,

First time poster, long time lurker. I'm currently in the process of putting together a build in the Bitfenix Prodigy ITX case and wondered if I could get some advice/suggestions.

I want to use the ASUS Maximus VI Impact motherboard and an air cooler, which would you recommend? I've read that the Hyper 212 EVO doesn't install properly due to the backplate? Otherwise I'd use that as I have one spare. I'm tempted by the low profile Noctua NH-L9i but I'm not sure if it will provide adequate cooling for a 4670K.

Thanks in advance.

The case itself should support most coolers. I'd imagine the mono would be the limiting factor on which you can use due to the closeness of the components on mini it boards
