Or metal

First attempts were metal, but that was a lot of work and when the inevitable modifications were required even more of a pain. So, i opted for Vivak, as i have access to a machine for cutting it, plus its gloss and looks cool under lights.

Why spend all the money on good looking, well functioning parts, if you're just going to clutter it with cables and make it look sloppy? Plus, especially in a small case like this, cable management can REALLY affect air flow and temperatures.

Don't get me wrong I don't mean sloppy cabling, I spent way more time than usual putting this case together just doing the cables ahead of time. I just don't really get the point of the panels everyone is making to cover the psu and front hdd area. To each their own, I probably will make a side window for the non-gpu side eventually.

P.S. Sazexa, I don't see you on the owner's list do you have a Prodigy? I think you're overestimating the smallness of this ITX case. There's a lot of room in here for components and wire management.

Just put your sound card, for example the Asus xonar dx, in your modded expansion bay and run an extension ribbon cable to where the WiFi used to plug into and taadaaa, sound card.
Based on a preliminary measurment, that's where my D5 pump will have to go.

There are people here who spend hundreds on sleeving alone so it's a big deal for some people. I didn't care too much but once I got sleeved extensions it really cleaned up my last build and I appreciated the efforts people put into cable management and sleeving.

No, I don't own it. A friend does, and I'm quite a fan of the case considering using it for a case to make a part comprised of spare parts. But yeah, as for covering the PSU area, that seemed silly to me. It look to blank.

Also, if your CPU block can be rotated, I'd suggest it. It looks like you're putting a lot of force on those tubes. "a lot".

Well hello all! I am new on here but I recently bought a bitfenix, set it up and everything! Just want to shed some light maybe help other users on here as well.

To start here are my specs

Gigabyte H55n-usb3 ITX
Intel core i5 750 (OC to 3.6Ghz)
8GB Mushkin silverline 1333
MSI GTX 460 cyclone 1gb
PC power and cooling silencer mk III (the beautiful white one)
Intel 320 120gb ssd
ocz octsane s2 120gb ssd
320gb WD blue 2.5" 5400rpm hdd
scythe kaze ace 4 channel fan controller


I have essentially gone with a completely black and white unit. Minus the blue main sata cable for identification purposes and the gigabyte motherboard. I was originally running a sugo sg-05 I think it was shoebox case with the 450w sfx power supply (which was horrible!) thus why i switched over to the prodigy, full size components.

so the reason I am posting is largely to help others out there with the h55n board or want to use the arctic cooling freezer 13 pro. Yes, they do fit. There are a few things to note, to use the pci-e slot, you have to fit the cooler in what would be normally blowing downwards. also have to install the ram first (and it does not support large heat spreaders)



On a side note, I picked up the antec accent LED strip (usb) and plugged it underneath for that super sexy glow. It matches with my kaze ace fan controller beautifully.



Believe it or not, but I switched from a coolit eco alc to air cooling, I've been having some issues with the cooler, pump is probably dying, and I found that in my case at least air cooling was more than sufficient to still maintain proper temperatures even while overclocking



Cable management is a bit of a pain, considering all the parts are for use in larger cases, I did the best that I could without cutting everything to length and resoldering/shrinkwrapping the wires. I did ensure that airflow would be impeded as little as possible. You will notice in the picture below, I used a 140mm bitfenix spectre in white, the 2 top 120mm is occupied by bitfenix xpectre led in white and the front the 230mm white spectre as well. There is just enough clearance for the cpu cooler, I do wish it could exhaust out the back, but you win some and you lose some. In this case I wasnt too worried, my GTX 460 runs extremely cool, and with the fans properly intaking and adequate exhausting, airfow is quite good.



I am looking to hear from everyone else, and hopefully discuss future mods to the prodigy case!

Welcome to OCN and nice first post! I really like that Antec LED strip idea and have been wondering on what to do with mine. I will probably steal your idea and make use of it under my case or inside my case. tongue.gif +rep

Thanks! Yeah I've been wanting to keep the look as clean as possible, my friend laughed at me, says I watch too many street racing movies.

I was originally going to stick CCFL's underneath (I have 2 laying around) but beyond the fact that the 12" ones were too long to fit underneath I had find a mounting point for the inverter and switch. It would have been more of a pain in the butt, however it probably would have given off a more even glow. The distance between the bottom and the desk is fairly short so you do still see the round light of the led on the bottom. I may pick up another strip to even it out, slightly offset.



I've been looking around the internet in search of a nice new emblem on the front of the case. I was fortunate the bitfenix logo comes off with just a slight twist of the front cover. (Soft touch isnt made to be sticking stuff too) I was hoping to maybe find a black anodized cube with a flat base to stick on the front.



Something along the lines of that on the front of the case... If anyone knows where I could get something like that it would be much appreciated!
