[Official] Bitfenix Prodigy & Phenom Owner's Club - Page 780

post #7791 of 11740
BitFenix, you're killing me. I want the new mATX Prodigy, but the Phenom M looks awesome as well. For everyone who is saying that the new layout is weird, why? It makes perfect sense. No, they couldn't place the motherboard tray like Adamski's because his is designed around watercooling. Not everyone will use liquid cooling, you have to leave clearance for tall air coolers. This is also why they moved the PSU up front and oriented it up vertically, to make room for additional air flow from the bottom. The GPUs pull cool air from the top, the CPU cooler pulls fresh air from the bottom, everyone wins. I like it. thumb.gif

What exactly do you get for the $189.99 price tag? Any information would be extremely helpful.. Thank you in advance
I own the performance pcs bitfenix. You are paying a extra 100 for the custom front on the stock case. If you go with it you might aswell get the slot load drive from them. All the pic have windows because they used to do their own before bitfenix had their windows. I was told the price has higher when they did it due to labor.

You can check shipping if you add to cart.

I am very happy with mine and the lighted front and rear fans (get the big ones)

Also if you were looking at the white case with the black trim it is pictured with tinted windows, I purchased some from ppcs to make my own its a big uncut sheet.

Hit me up if you got questions.

just to be clear 189 gets you the stock prodigy with the front panel installed no window. it comes with i belive 2 120mm fans like the stock one does

And this is why some don't like it, because they have had to make concessions for both water and air cooling but this process has limited both options.
Honestly I think if they had just widened the original prodigy and kept the motherboard orientation they would have been on to a winner but due to time constraints/money/production issues (whatever, I don't know) this didn't happen.
Shame. I think bitfenix have missed an opportunity here to, at the least, match the success of the prodigy.

As always, just my 2cents.gif

Phenom is an entirely different case. smile.gif the mATX slanted case beside prodigy on the left, has no name yet tongue.gif but that, will be a water cooler's dream.

Wow, I am most impressed that a real Bitfenix rep is here to answer my question!

And also impressed that the Micro-ATX version will be the SAME size as the white mini-ITX one that I currently own.

I can't wait.

Any color choice for Prodigy M or just only black then? I really want green or orange.

Yup. I mentioned that already couple times here. smile.gif The new Prodigy M's layout is fine except the weird position of PSU. Imagine unsleeved cables in there. 24pin, cpu 8-pin, two to four pci-e,molex, and etc. I'd say it is not watercooling friendly as well compared to original prodigy. Thinking as a modder it would be though to install two 240RAD in there without moving the mobo tray. Which I might end up with the same layout as my Prodigious. The only option without modding is 240 at the top, nothing on bay slot, and with your pump and res blocking your beautiful motherboard. I would keep the original layout of original prodigy and just install more stand-offs in there for MATX boards.
