[Official] Bitfenix Prodigy & Phenom Owner's Club - Page 510

Hey Bitfenix, if you are reading this thread, I have a suggestion for if you do decide to go with a larger Prodigy.

Keep the motherboard orientation. It's one of the BEST features of this case!

"Prodigy 2.0"
- More room for PSU (maybe using an extender bracket)
- Mount power / reset buttons / USB ports onto case frame and just have cutout on the side panel for them instead of mounting them to the frickin' side panel OR just put them someplace else entirely
- Use a more durable and heavy material for the "legs" and "handles"
- Front mesh for all colors (not just for the black one).
- Move motherboard over a little more so there's space for larger VGA heatsinks like the AC Acceleros
- Windowed side panel on the "open" side so you can see inside the case
- If adding a window to the video card side, perforate the window so that the video card still gets air

I think that it's too much wink.gif Rather go with something like this:

Finished the prodigy build,

kind of hand a 'tantrum' the other day because the brand spanking new psu was squealing although it's quieter once I disabled c states and speed-step for some reason. The seller even refused to provide me with an invoice (no 5 year warranty now) let alone return it madsmiley.png

Do you think I should jam a second fan as push on the cpu cooler? It's a bit of a tight fit because the atx cable isn't very flexible.

Deepcool, it blocks the pci-e slot, the asrock z77e-itx has a poor placement of the cpu socket. I opt for a bigger cooler because this rig doesn't need more than intel hd4000, and it gives me a nice 30c delta over ambient temps on the cpu under load in prime 95.

You can get adapters like this as well:

http://www.amazon.com/Zalman-ZM-MC1-Multi-connector-Add-Fan/dp/B000FAKUE6/ref=pd_cp_pc_3



for multiple fans to be plugged into one molex connector too.


thanks, my friends also suggested those, but i have trouble looking for those, instead i found this one
