Can't see it. But I am on an iPhone!!
post #5922 of 11741
I'm joing this club soon.....

Fed up of massive cases and want to give one of these a blast thumb.gif

2 things that are bugging me, first is how fussy this case is when it comes to PSU's and the second is cooling.

I have to run a BR-Drive so I can't run a Corsair H100 in the roof, is there a way to mount it on the front?

Is there any self contained water loops with a 200mm fan?

If you really want to keep the ODD, just go for an H80i or a Kraken X40. Both perform within a few degrees of the H100(i) and you can mount it against the back panel.

You can fit in practically any PSU that is 160mm long or shorter. Longer PSUs will protrude from outside the case.

when you want to run the H100 on the roof, you might want to consider a little bit of modding and turning the front panel upside down. You will end up having the ODD on the bottom, but you will have the top space free for a radiator. I haven't done this solution myself, so you might want to measure the space between the BR-Drive and the PSU cage to see if you will be able to plug in the power and sata cables. It might be tight but feasible in my opinion.

1 question. Where are you mobo stand-offs? Is it really screwed straight to the metal?

HuwSharpe is exactly right. It's a piece of acrylic with the backplate area cut out and holes drill so the mobo standoffs can still be used...thumb.gif

Sorry for asking so many questions but I have one more. redface.gif The front usb 3.0 ports keep saying device not recognized when ever I connect my usb 2.0 flash drive. I disconnected the usb 2.0 cable because I already had the usb 3.0 one connected and it didn't make a difference. If I connect a mouse to it, it works but it won't work with a flash drive. i don't have any usb 3.0 ports to test either. Can someone please help me out, I can't find anything on google. confusedsmiley.png

I would check the flash drive first..plug it in one of the rear USB ports..If it works, then there is an issue with the front panel USB 3.0...After that, reload the USB drivers or see if there is an update for your mobo drivers.

The flash drive works with the back usb ports, I updated the usb 3.0 drivers in the mobo right after windows finished installing so I don't know what to do ;/

Pretty sure there's an issue with front panel USB 3.0 on the Prodigy case. I could never use it to transfer files properly from my camera, phone, etc. and had to use the USB 2.0 connector to the motherboard instead. Using the same motherboard (ASRock Z77E-ITX) with another case now (Fractal Design Define R4), the front USB 3.0 ports work perfectly well there.

Do you think I should take it back to ncix and exchange it? I think they have a 14 day exchange policy.
