Any problems with a 200mm front fan?

Possibly with the HDD cages, otherwise no. I'll let others chime in, i have all my cages ripped out (Although it *should* fit ... )

Anyone else using an Arctic Cooling Accelero Mono Plus in the Prodigy? If so, what did you do to get the side panel to go back on? Just cut a hole for the Accelero to fit through?

Yes. The Arctic Accelero series are too wide to fit in the case. The clearance on those vga coolers are typically 50mm+ and you want it to be below 40mm. Otherwise its mod time on the side panel biggrin.gif

another "will it fit?" type question here.

Have a GTX 690 that will either be with an XSPC or EK GPU block. For arguments sake let's pretend it's the XSPC. Obviously the block is offset, but the issue is tubing routing. Can anyone who has used the GPU block (or one of the same height) give me some input as to which rad/fan combo would allow the tubing to fit underneath?
I plan on using 2x Corsair SP120s, with one of the following:

ALPHACOOL NEXXXOS ST30 FULL COPPER 240mm (30mm)
Hardware Labs Black Ice GTS 240 (29.6mm)
KOOLANCE HX-CU720V (30mm)
XSPC EX240 (35.5mm)

Heard good things about the EX240, but it is the thickest of the three, so I'd expect it to perform a bit better. Question is whether it will fit. Any input would be much appreciated

edit: Has anyone used the EK GPU block with the prodigy? given the front inlet/outlet (which cretin thought that was optimal?) would I be able to route tubing without colliding with the side panel, perhaps using some 90 degree fittings? - I'm only considering the EK because I'm a fan of the aesthetics and it will go well with the Supremacy CPU block Just discovered the EK-FC Link thingy

Couldn't be happier with my setup now, apart from perhaps standing a Tron figure inside =)

Just need to cut the window now as Bitfenix showing no signs of giving us a right hand side windowed panel. Any advice before cutting? Only ever worked with aluminum cases.

Was your question directed at me?

That's my system in the picture. I haven't been added to the Prodigy owners list yet.

Great article comparing the top 5 mITX motherboards posted today over on AnandTech - unfortunately they were tested on a test bench, and not inside a case. Still, a very helpful read for those not sure of which motherboard to pick for their Prodigy...

Well my Hydro dip kit came in..... time to see if I get a diamond or a lemon -_-

Update: my gut feeling was right, the primer didn't adhere thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif . So I went over it with few coats of fusion paint, going to sand it down in a week when the paint fully dries. Then try again, I have to do the underside in an hour or so.

Update 2: Well the fusion paint adhered perfectly to the undersides. I will give it a flex test next week when it fully dries.
