That only leaves 10mm for cable clearance. Has anyone tried this? I probably could do it, but if someone already has used a modular 160mm power supply, then I would know that I could.

That's 20mm of clearance not 10mm. I put a seasonic x660 in a prodigy without issues so your PSU should fit fine (with a little pushin').

You're right. I think I just misunderstood "PSU cage depth 180mm" for some reason, but now I perfectly understand. I already have a modular Corsair power supply, and I think 20mm clearance is definitely enough smile.gif

My Prodigy is the second version and has open PSU cage so you can fit whatever length you want.

If you're buying it new I believe you'll get the same one as well

What do you mean by new version?

Hello
post #11716 of 11743
Hi

looking to update my prodigy from a 3570k with H60 cooler, to a 6700k with maybe air cooling (the pump noise on the h60 is annoying at idle)

The noctua NH-D15 gets rave reviews for quiet cooling, but will it fit in a prodigy that has an optical drive (I need my bluray drive for ripping). I have a spectre 230mm front fan so I could leave off the front cooler fan if necessary but I don't know how much that would compromise my temps

I don't think there's anyway it would fit with an optical drive installed. Maybe a u14 or u12 would do the trick.

Saw a video installing a U14 where they pull the optical drive too. Hmm. I don't use it very often except for ripping blurays so maybe I could put it in an enclosure and run it from USB.. The alternative seems to be smaller air coolers, or 120mm AIO water coolers on the rear (which is what I currently have with my h60). It is a little disappointing where they mount the optical bay because it basically blocks 240mm radiators at the top and front, and even makes it difficult to have a 120mm radiator at the top

I have a question, I've owned a Prodigy for 3 years now.

Last week I decided to install a new front fan, I bought a Coolermaster 200mm. I rushed through it and didn't realize it came with screws, I ended up using the screws that held the original Prodigy fan in place. The screws were a pain to get in, and I think I might've stripped one of them. Is it safe to continue using the Prodigy screws? Everything seems to be fine, no vibrations from what I hear. I'm just curious if anyone else has done the same.

If its in its in lol i wouldnt see any need to change the screws if its functioning properly smile.gif
