My Seasonic X-660 Gold was being cramp up with the cables, so after reading a few replies, I also did the dayischain solution, far from pretty, but it'll have to do untill I recieve my Lian Li PE-01, which I ofcourse will have to paint white.

1. you can sleeve the cables of the PSU and void the warranty
2. you can make/buy extensions as I have done, and you will need to hide away the original cables somewhere. You will keep the warranty and you can use the extensions in future builds as well. My PSU is Seasonic G360 which is only 140mm long so there was plenty of room to hide the cables in Prodigy on the sides and the back of the PSU bay, with other PSUs you might have issues doing it.
Thanks for the info. If I ever do decide to sleeve my cables, I will probably just buy a new modular PSU anyways. They seem much better and my cables are a total mess with my current PSU.

Here are my current parts...

BitFenix Prodigy Black Case
i7 3770K
Gigabyte GA-Z77N-WIFI
Samsung 840 Series SSD 250GB

Would people recommend the Corsair H60 or just some additional fans (if so, which ones?)...I was looking at the Coolermaster 200m instead of the Bitfenix 230m. Having a quiet setup is very important to me.

Also, what PSU is recommended? I was thinking about the SilverStone Strider Plus ST50F-P 500W (80 dollars)? I like it because it's 100% modular & 140mm. However, I'd certainly look at others if there are better/cheaper?

Thanks a mil!

PS: I have tried going through a lot of this thread, but there's a lot here, and would love some direct input.

Hi guys I’m looking to make a new computer in about 3 months but I thought I’d ask here for some help and tips when it comes to the prodigy. I’ve tried to do as much research as I can so hopefully everything is good but basically I’m asking if you guys can tell me if what I want to will fit in this case and if not how I can make it work or what I can change so here I go.
Here are the parts I’m looking into getting. I’ll put a little explanation behind some of the ones I’m not too sure about so you can help me make up my mind on them.

https://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=wish_lists&wlcId=149249&action=wish_lists

I’m gona number these to make it easy but some questions might be a bit long. This is my first project like this and I would like to know as much as I can about what I’m going to be doing before I start.

1. Ok first up I have the 240 black ice gt rad to go on the top and the 120 to go on the front. Now I’m thinking of changing the 120 into another 240 and have one on the top and one on the front. Now I’m guessing that they won’t fit to well so I was thinking is it possible to mount the rad to top of the case so it fits in where the dust filter is and is flush with the top of the case and have the fans on the bottom. Or would I need to take out the fan cut outs at the top to fit it.

2. Next up my pump and res what are some good all in one pumps and res as I’m thinking they would be better in such a small case.


3. Another thing I’m not sure about is the fittings I have some normal compression fittings and some right angled ones would these give me enough leg room to make a proper loop.

4. My last question is about my loop I was thinking of going something like top res>>pump>>front res>>GPU>>CPU>>top res or something like that. Would that be the most effect way of going about it?

That’s all my questions I hope you guys can help as I’m really excited about doing this build and can’t wait to start it. If you have any tips or see something wrong with the build then please tell me thanks!


EDIT: just noticed the name on my account....

PS: I have tried going through a lot of this thread, but there's a lot here, and would love some direct input.

I am looking at the Strider Plus 500 as well, looks like the best bang for the buck. Get the PP05 Cable Set to help with the cable management, this looks to be the setup designed from the start for an ITX build.

As for the front fan for the case I am debating a lot of options for my build. A lot of people seem to like the Bitfenix Pro 200 for the front and I am leaning that way with a Pro 140 for the back. However I also like a quiet setup so I am concerned I will have to throttle down those fans. This has me also looking at a dual 120 setup in the front and possibly doing those with Noctua so I can use them as PWM, let the heat dictate the speed.

As for the cooler I considered the single 120 radiator approach but that seems a waste unless you need an optical drive. I am personally going with a Thermaltake Water 2.0 Extreme.
