I'm starting a new build, but I can't decide on a fan setup, I'm going to use ( for now ) my older Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo for the CPU which is the Intel Core i5-3570K and the motherboard is ASUS P8Z77-I DELUXE mITX.

What fan setup would you recommend, 1 big for intake in front, or 2 smaller ones ( 120 mm's ) and then a 140mm behind the 212 Evo for exhaust? Also, I'm going to use the bottom mounted HDD case only, sp there should be plenty of clear space for the front intake air.

I'm not gonna overclock it just now, maybe some day in the future, hope it all made sense.

The 212 Evo's backplate won't fit properly on that board - I bought one and sent it back as it would have crushed some chips near one of the mounting holes if i hadn't noticed.

I later got the smaller 90mm TX3 evo that uses stock cooler style mounting clips and got a stock speed load temp of 61C on my 3570K.

Although recently i went back to my old H60.

but you can easily go with just 2x 120mm in the front and then 1x 120mm in the back smile.gif

Exactly my thoughts about the positive airpreasure, so thank you for your response, and btw, love this thread, awsome stuff.

What I think you should do is leave the bottom feet off, but make a custom, angular handle on the top. I think that would look sweet (even if you don't actually use it for carrying)

And a little hint, either of the setups you use, if you have either of the prodigy versions always dust filter the intake fans, because takes in a lot of dust even with the dust filter on top smile.gif

Ahh now I see, will have a look tomorrow, but looks like without any modding I need another CPU cooler.
*EDIT* been thinking, how about some o-rings or some other kind of ring/spacer to clear the space between the mount and the motherboard?

It's kind of a personal choice...I prefer to keep all of my fittings the same color, but I have seen some black and shining silver combos that looked pretty amazing...

If anyone has a 200mm bitfenix spectre pro in the front of their prodigy, could you advise me how loud it is? as I am thinking of getting one when ordering the case.
