I want to add a rad to the front of my Prodigy. I have a ODD fitted, which I do not want to loose.

I want to fit either a Phobya 200mm rad or Magicool 180mm rad.

I plan to use 2 x Silverstone FM181's in push/pull config.

I know the 180mm rad will not be a problem, but could I use the 200mm rad and still have my ODD and not have issues with the side power/reset/USB's? I thought I read that a 200mm rad gave cleance problems. Or would having the 32mm thk fan spacing it back resolve this issue?

I dont need the drive bays as I have 2 x 2.5" drives which can be squeezed anywhere!

I want to OC my 3570k to circa 4.5GHz. Or should I just go with a H80i? As I only plan to OC the CPU and wont be putting my 7950 under water!

Many thanks for your help and input guys.

@ motokill36. Cheers for that. It looks a bit tight!!
Can you get a pic showing the ODD cut out in relation to the top of the rad?
I see you don't have it set up as push/pull because of the roof mounted rad?
Thanks so much for the quick replies.

I just saw Phobya 200 rad! Do they make 2 then?!

Ok, so after coming home and checking some stuff on my fan controller/temp readout, I realized I was a complete idiot earlier. I did have everything hooked up correctly before. I had just not messed with it for 5 years lol. I have one question about using a fan controller though. With the one that I have, it only has three empty fan plugs. Two random plugs for whatever, then a CPU fan plug... would it be possible to combine one of the fan plugs to control two separate fans, as long as I don't use the CPU plug? I want to essentially just cut one of the plugs off from one of the fans, and connect the wires from that, to another fan plug, so that they run in parallel essentially, and they are both controlled by one fan output from the controller. Essentially, I have the two stock fans at the top of the case, and I want to combine the wires into one plug, but I'm curious if the power is going to be restricted by doing that.

Sorry if that's oddly worded... it was kind of a bunch of different thoughts into one long ass section lol.

Just use a splitter and yes it is possible biggrin.gif

Huh? There's one Phobya 200 (200.1) and Phobya 480 (240cm per side, 120.4)

I guess asking of it were possible may have been the wrong word. I was more worried about it affecting the ability to keep it at a decent speed, and whether or not it would get the proper amount of power. Either way, thanks... yet again lol. thumb.gif

The fans really dont use that much power so you can keep your speed and give up nothing thumb.gif Glad to help!

Hello everyone

i have already purchase my Prodigy case and its on its way (the wait is killing me) smile.gif
I will be using all parts from old computer but i will need a new mobo, My question now is that i am unsure which one to pick as alot of people have different brands and types
My choices will be one of the following unless there is a better one out there

ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe
ASRock Z77E-I
ASUS P8H77-I

I would rather not spend more than $200 but if the P8Z77 is worth it i will spend the extra $15, doesnt sound like much but every dollar counts smile.gif

Existing parts are:
I7 2600k 4.2
MSI 580 Lightning Edition
G.Skill Ripjaws Z 2133 16GB
Corsair 120GB SSD and 240GB SSD
Corsair Hydro Series H80i
CoolMaster 800w silent pro GOLD (i have seen others use this one so i know i can make it fit with a few pushes)
