Fan can be moved to the right, mounted with zip ties for instance.

It would have to be shifted over significantly, but perhaps if you made custom mounting for it.

Hey guys, I'm in the process of building a Prodigy rig. I plan on overclocking the CPU a little and will be using the machine for gaming, video/photo editing, some music production, and it will be hooked up to my tv as a HTPC. For gaming I'm not obsessed about being able to run the newest games at the highest settings, just as long as it will run new games and they don't look like total crap.

PCPartPicker part list

CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor ($169.99 @ Microcenter)
CPU Cooler: Corsair H60 54.0 CFM Liquid CPU Cooler ($59.99 @ NCIX US)
Motherboard: Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe Mini ITX LGA1155 Motherboard ($182.58 @ NCIX US)
Memory: G.Skill Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1333 Memory ($54.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Samsung 830 Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($106.98 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($69.99 @ NCIX US)
Video Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card ($189.99 @ NCIX US)
Case: BitFenix Prodigy (Black) Mini ITX Tower Case ($79.99 @ NCIX US)
Power Supply: Enermax 650W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($64.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $979.49

I've already bought the RAM(on sale for $50), the case, the PSU, the SSD, as well as buying a 200mm intake fan for the front and a COUGAR CF-V12HP to be hooked up to the top of case. I plan on using an external optical drive so I can have 2 fans on the top of the case. Will probably buy the rest of the components in the next day or two. Let me know what you think. Will the cooling be adequate? Are there any problems with the CPU Cooler and the motherboard? I've done a lot of research and everything seems compatible, just want to double check before I drop the money on the motherboard, CPU, and CPU Cooler.

Thanks

Hi, I'm thinking of making a build with the black prodigy+asrock z77e itx. Can you guys please recommend a good quiet cooler that'll fit? I was very attracted to the silver arrow (extreme or non extreme either is fine) due to its low noise and superb cooling, but I have a nagging feeling it'll not fit with the evga gtx 650 and 2x8 snipers that I've just ordered. Is that right or are there mods that I can do to squeeze it in there?
post #2897 of 11740
P. S. As far as possible in trying to save some money by not buying the Asus I deluxe
post #2898 of 11740
P. P. S. Sorry forgot to mention that I'm looking to oc to about 4.5 in the 3570k for now maybe higher later. I've looked at water cooling and decided that's not really for me yet. The h60 is almost in the right price range, but apparently isn't so good noise wise.
post #2899 of 11740
You will have a lot of trouble getting an air cooler to fit the asrock. I have that same mobo and eventually went with the h100 as it was the only way I could get a decent overclock.

if you look at the socket placement, you'll see that the mounting holes are pretty much right up against the PCIe slot. So for something to fit it needs to have virtually no overhang in that direction.
about the only way of getting a tower cooler to fit is to install it sideways with a single fan. No way you'll hit 4.5 on a 3570k with that setup without some seriously high temps.
you could go with a smaller cooler with a 92mm fan instead of 120, but you'll encounter the same heat issues.

I would either plop the extra cash on a decent AIO, or settle with a lower OC.

EDIT: for reference, my h100 with a pair of SP120's keeps my 3570k (4.5ghz) at 72c max package temp. I think with a single fan tower cooler working against the airflow of your case, you'll be at 80c or higher.

Thetrystero I think that good air cooling is better than crappy water cooling (like this corsairs etc.). If you want descent air cooling you must think about other motherboard like ASUS P8Z77-I DELUXE or EVGA Z77 Mini-ITX.
