I could also move the radiator back, but I'd only be able to use like 2 screws to hold it on. It would leave enough room for the rad to fit inside the ODD bay with the Recon.

I'm also wondering if there's a way to fit the rad on top.
In progress.

I am not sure if it is possible with the H100, but people have done it with other radiators.

Someone on here did it with the method I described. It looks tight.

Gonna pickup a WiDi adapter for my TV in a couple of weeks to try that feature out.

That's encouraging =)

I haven't messed with overclocking at all yet. Mostly just been getting the build in order and trying to troubleshoot an issue I am having with the system not resuming from Standby. I ended up identifying a bad RAM module in the process, so I'm waiting for that RMA process to complete before I do much since I have to take off my CPU cooler to put my RAM in =)

and also, I've heard stories that using a splitter messes with the rpm readings you get from the mb. I read that you have to cut all but 1 rpm cord so it doesn't mess with the readings. Any ideas?

Only one of the headers actually reports back fan speed, I am not sure if this messes up speed reporting or not.

My Black Prodigy just arrived today and i'm looking at replacing my XSPC dual bay pump/res, as although i can see ways to fit it, it's just going to take up more space then i'd like. (i've seen it done in this forum, and it looked fine, but i also want to get a Recon fan controller in, and that won't be an easy fit top, because of the rad, or bottom, because of the pump/res)

I know the popularity of the MCP35X pump but there doesn't seem to be anyone selling them new in Australia. (not from my usual retailers, PC Case Gear/The Koolroom/Scorpion Tech....maybe someone knows a local Aussie retailer that has them) I can get the new MCP35X2 Dual pump, but it's starting to stretch my budget alot more then i'm comfortable with.

I could get a Koolance TNK-400 combo, but i hear for the price, the MCP35X is better in every way.

Anyone got any feedback on the XSPC X20 450 Pump/Res ? It's inexpensive(i don't say cheap, because i can't find any reviews on it to know anything about it's quality). It's a small combo unit that i could see fitting nicely inside the Prodigy and, based on my current dual bay unit, it should be very quiet.

I just have a basic CPU loop, XSPC Raystorm CPU block with an XSPC RX240 radiator with push/pull fans. I have no immediate plans to watercool my GPU.

I could always just import a MCP35X with a res for about $20-30 more then the TNK-400 bought locally.

Any ideas/suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

No, better at the bottom if you ask me.

ok thanks only the last question..

Now I'm seeing for a modular psu...
SilverStone ST55F-G is very expensive ,
Seasonic G-450 fit in this case or is too big?

If it is too big can you suggest to me another modular psu?
