Is this ever coming?

You can't build a high-end or enthusiast system w/ the Prodigy if you can't fit a high-end PSU in it.

Given that the prodigy only supports a single GPU, I don't really see the issue.

I have a GTX 690 powered buy an ax750. fits snug without any kind of extension. what more could you need?

Granted, the option would be nice for the option of fitting longer PSUs, but you make it sound like its lacking in some way. It fits full sized ATX modular PSUs, so 99 percent of people don't need to worry.

I tried a 140mm SilverStone ST65F-G in the Prodigy and even that was difficult to push in all the way. I have a SeaSonic SS-660XP on the way and hope I won't have to jam it in just for it to fit.

I really can't imagine what the problem is, i fitted the Corsair AX750 (160mm, full modular) with relative ease.

1. take off front panel (don't wanna scratch it wink.gif )
2. turn the case on it's face
3. connect the cables you are going to need to the PSU (think about this, it's gonna save you a headache)
4. put the cables through the PSU hole first and pull them sideways out of the case again
5. Slowly push in the PSU till you can fit the thumbscrews
6. When the PSU sits snug, change the thumbscrews for the intended screws.

Done.

I know that there's a group of people out there who have used the silverstone psu extender bracket. Its use would necessitate some new holes; but if you just 'have' to cram a 1500w psu in there it would help.

What the hell are you putting in the one pci slot that requires more than 850W?
Plenty of people here (myself to soon be included) comfortably powering a GTX 690, high end CPU - all water cooled.

My rig, including a 690, is running off of a 550w PSU. It pulls around 460w from the wall at full load. Some people still think they need 1kw to run any sort of decent system though.

I was thinking more like a nuclear reactor. I went overboard with my corsair gold 750w and am regretting it because its causing problems with my prodigy. It was fine until I sleeved the cables. I might remove the heatshrink on the PSU side to allow more flex in the individual wires at the connectors. By the way I'm running a 3570k, in an asrock z77, a 660ti, ssd, 6 fans with a draw of no more than 1.5 amps, and a DDC 350 pump. I should need no more than 600watts at full load even with the 3570k clocked high.
