Also, didn't notice the apogee. Nice choice thumb.gif

A 480 ? Wow, sounds interesseting thumb.gif

Looking forward to see that smile.gif !

It's the exact dimensions of the Prodigy's top ... I'm still trying to wrap my head around everything. once the rest of my WC parts come in I'll figure out what's possible

If i had the money, i would build a similiar build to what you describe ! smile.gif

But my plan is right now to fit a window in both sides i think, maybe in a light blue. Sleeve the cables, build a case for my psu which is sticking out of the case because of it's size. Then get the the black front or modify the excisting front, maybe cutting holes for 2 fans then mount them outside redface.gif

I would sleeve cables if I was brave enough tongue.gif

Lol mine are too long as well. Damn mITX cases tongue.gif

Also when I said brave ... I meant patient. I just don't have the motivation to bother with that when I can pay someone else to do it

To phobya xtreme 200 owners..

What about the switch panel?Can the sidepanel close?

I have read about people having problem and have also seen other prodigy fotos with everything installed nicely. confusedsmiley.png

i've got a question about optimal cooling in the bitfenix prodigy.

i have a cooler master hyper 212 evo with a 120mm noctua fan on it, a 140mm noctua intake fan in the front of the case, and a 120mm noctua exhaust fan in the rear. i am using a fan controller to regulate all 3 fans.

the CPU on my current setup gets a bit hot sometimes. i would like minimal noise. how can i optimize my setup even further?

should i get a PWM fan for my cooler, put the 140mm in the rear for exhaust, put 2x 120mm in the front on intake, and put 2x 120 in the top (front top for intake, rear top for exhaust)? would that be the optimal setup that utilizes all of the fan slots?

thanks

Just got the Prodigy together after getting the final parts five hours ago.

I gotta admit, this build was completely different than the usual ATX/full tower builds I'm used to.

I'm really liking this case. Just wish it was made out of higher quality metal like aluminum.
