Ah. I briefly thought about an XSPC, but it wouldn't work out the way it did in your build. I figured it'd be easier and more pertinent for me to just order parts individually. Thanks for the tip, though.

hi redlion,

well, my prodigy set-up is just the same as your planned set-up but different in videocard, im using the old but still powerful gtx 285 2gig 512bit videocard, the procie is i7 3770K cooled by a corsair H60 and, using a gigabyte z77n mobo, i overclocked it to 4.2 ghz..... smile.gif, ocing in this mobo is just very simple... smile.gif, and its a hackintosh running on a mountain lion os x and windows 7, both on ocz 120gbyte ssd's

here's my prodigy

Wow that is exactly how I would like my build to end up smile.gif

How do you find the H60? Is it relatively quiet? What guide did you follow to get OSX ML working. Did you have any major issues?

What elements of the motherboard worked and didn't? Glad to hear the i7 3770K can go to 4.2 ghz without too much trouble and on a board that isn't really made for OC'ing? Did you have a simple guide I could follow as this is my first build.

Do you have any additional fans in the Prodigy or change the stock H60 fans?

I have decided to up the budget and just get a 660 GTX Ti to be more future proof for my editing.

I used a jigsaw for the cut and a metal file for the small bumps and such.

Would you mind linking your instruments, please? (the jigsaw and the metal file) I'm looking to try for rounded corners for my next case project. Thank you.

Hello guys,

Quick question = My original plan was to get a 200mm front intake fan, a 140mm exhaust fan and an Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro for the CPU. But as I finally get close to ordering all the components I'm starting to worry the CPU fan will not fit with the memory / PCI Express slot... (mobo would be Gigabyte Z77N-WIFI).

SO I may just get the 200mm intake fan and a Corsair Hydro H55 due to its low profile. But no exhaust (due to the H55 taking the back fan space).

My question is do I need an exhaust? I was told that due to the case being small there isn't much need for an exhaust fan due to the low risk of heat spots. Therefore would a good CPU cooling solution (the H55) + a large front intake fan be sufficient to maintain good temps?

Or does anyone have experience fitting an AC Freezer Pro 7 in this case? Am I worried over nothing?

Cheers for any advice =)
