Hey guys, new to the forum, and plan on ordering a Prodigy (in Black), in a few days but had some questions first.
The first thing I was curious about after sifting through the first 80-something pages of this thread was, why do so many of you NOT use an optical drive of some kind? I mean, I guess I understand that most things are available to download online, but I'm still curious why you wouldn't want to have one.
Second, once I get the new case, I planned on cutting out the sides, and putting in some windows. However, I'm wondering where you guys order your plexiglass/acrylic/whatever. Most places I've seen online you either have to order to fit (which can be expensive), or buy in bulk. Does anyone have a link to a site that sells sheets that are a good size for this, and that I wouldn't have to trim down?
Third, and finally (lol), I was wondering if it's possible to mount a standard size hard drive to the very bottom of the case, if you take out both hard drive bays? I've seen a lot of people just use the SSD's and put some double sided 3M tape on them or something, but from the pictures that I've seen, there are screw holes on the bottom, in order to take the bottom cage off, and thought maybe they could be used to mount a standard size hard drive as well.
I'm sure I'll have more questions lol. I love the looks of this case, and am sure that this is the one that I am going to use for my next build. I am currently wanting to upgrade from what I have, which is a desktop that I built a few years ago. I want something a little smaller, but that can still be used for some very decent gaming. I already have 95% of the components picked out. I'm just waiting until I have a couple bills cleared up, then I'm going to start ordering things.

I mounted a fan controller there instead. I would like to keep a optical drive, but my external one does just fine when needed. (mostly download online)

I bought a sheet of plexy at my local Home Depot and used a plexiglass cutting tool (also from Home Depot) and cut down to what size i needed. All very simple and cheep since i did everything myself. (total under 20 dollers. Tool and sheet)

Good question on the drive. I am going to check out that tonight as well.

You will love this case. Good luck!

Yeah, my current set up has a cd/dvd drive, PLUS a digital fan controller with temp read-outs. So I'm contemplating only using the controller, and just have an external optical drive. I still watch dvd's on my computer though 'cause I have my 44" flat panel hooked up to my computer as well, lol (with a 19" flat panel monitor as my main screen, and tv for watching movies/netflix).

I have seen some pretty freakin sweet custom face and side plates as well on here. Man, gives me all sorts of idea's lol.

WELDING WILL BE FINE. You just need to know what joints to do before any others, and make sure its all tacked into place. that will prevent warping. And clamp it down. Alot of people have a tough time welding cases because they don't use hold downs, or tack, they just weld away. Gotta prep it!

Its been 2 Years and 5 seperate builds since i've used an ODD. I have an external that I have used maybe 3 times in that space.
everything is downloadable now.

also, a radiator in the top means you cant fit an odd.

I have build a couple of modded big case watercooled cases in the past, but I have to say
that the Prodigy is my most favourite one yet.

I am having loads of fun with it and it has lots of room i think for small case :-)

Wish you lots of fun with it too.

Don´t think you will do anything wrong by getting it thumb.gif

I have an optical drive internal; nice Asus Blu Ray burner so I made it work (plus I already have another reader external). Most that don't either don't need one or wanted the room for something else like a dual radiator. I managed to fit a single 120mm radiator in the rear plus a pump/res combo in the front where the HDD bays were.

I really want a window too especially as my tubing layout turned out looking great but the view is totally blocked by the GPU in the first place. Thought about the other side but idk how well that would work out.
