Thanks for the suggestion glad it wasnt just me being daft.

That daughter board just felt too gimmicky to me, the ASRock has no problem reaching crazy overclocks. Makes me even happier with my purchase.

Howdy ya'll. First post, I've been reading up on the Prodigy here since this case first hit the market. I am planning my build right now. Will start a build log once I begin to get components in.

I am strongly leaning towards the Corsair TX850M, it's dimensions are 150mm(W) x 86mm(H) x
160mm(L) which are precisely the max recommended size for the case I think. Plus the individually sleeved cables are spiff and 850W is plenty of headroom for running extra USB devices and keeping the PSU quiet.

rest of the build will be pretty run of the mill for an itx gaming rig: i5-3570k, 8GB of Corsair Vengance 8-8-8-24 1600 1.5V, Galaxy GeForce GTX 670 GC, Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme CPU cooler, Corsair Force 3 240Gb SSD, Bitfenix Spectre Pro 230mm for the front intake.
Will wait for reviews to come out on the EVGA Z77 itx board before choosing a mobo.

My biggest concern is dust filtering the front and side intakes.
I suppose I could screw on some 120-140mm filters to the inside of the side panel, it looks like 3 might do the job from the pictures I've seen but will be hard to tell until I have it on hand.

I am at a loss as to rigging something to the front though. I plan on getting the white case, I could either rig some form of air conditioning filter (home or auto?) across the entire front cutouts where the fan attaches, or see about routing something along the outside edges of the front panel. Any suggestions?

you could get the magnetic filters (the really big ones, like 140x280mm and 230x230mm) and put them on the inside of the window and under the front panel should be a nice looking build tho.

good idea, didn't know they made em that big. XBourneX posted on the Bitfenix forum that the dimensions of the vents on the side panel are 130mmx260mm, this dust filter should do the trick. Wonder if there is room to fit two side by side on the front panel. Now if I can just find the case in stock thumb.gif

Also checking out some of the dust filter offerings at frozencpu
