In regards to the Power Supply, the only ones I can find mentioned are Silverstone. I'm not too familiar with their PSUs or which specific model it is, though. Has anyone used these or a different one with success? I'd like to keep this build as clean and neat as possible. thumb.gif

as far as I know, go with the highest profile sticks you can ( if you like them that is thumb.gif )

mrsharkington used one of those 650w silverstones in his rig, it buzzes some he says, but when you overclock that just goes away.

though I could suggest my PSU... though cable management would be quite a bit harder, as you can see here

- What Mini-Itx 1155 Motherboard would you recommend? I'd like it to allow decent overclocking, 16GB RAM, 1x PCI-E 16x Slot (of course), and decent audio would be a plus but isn't required.

- What power supply(ies) work well in the Prodigy? I wanted to get a Corsair AX760i/860i to match my full red/black build but I'm not sure how well that will fit and if it will leave a bunch of messy cables everywhere. Are there any high quality PSUs that work perfectly for a smaller case like this and is it better to go fully modular or not?

- Will the Corsair H110 fit in the top? It says it will house 2x 140mm fans and I plan to remove the Optical Drive Bay, anyways, because I don't use one so I'm not sure why it wouldn't fit? I've heard varying opinions on this, though.

Anything else I missed that is important to know? This would be my first Mini-Itx build so I have absolutely no clue what I am doing. thumb.gif haha

Thanks!

Either the ASRock z77e-itx or the Asus p8z77-i are the boards you want to look at.

I personally am using a non-modular 750w psu in mine, but some others used some modular PSUs like the Corsair ax650 (or something along those lines). and of course as long as your PSU's aren't 160mm (or about 6.3 in) then they should probably fit fine

no, the h110 will not fit on the prodigy (but it can after some modifications?), if you didn't buy the cooler yet, consider the h100i instead.

and be careful when building this little system, and be very careful not to get a gash on your leg. thumb.gif

Asrock has probably the worst customer support I've ever seen, so... Buy it and you might as well be on your own. Asus or Gigabyte all the way.

H110 will NOT fit up top without some tedious modding. Also have a gameplan for the H100, the hoses are long and strong.

If you can, go for an ACX 780, the sink preforms so much better than the stock one.

LRT can tell you exactly what your power consumption will be like, personally I recommend any high watt PSU, as you are more investing in a PSU then buying it. There's a PSU fitting guide in the OP.

And cuts suck, and you will get at least one. thumb.gif

I've actually noticed something about z77e-itx owners and their board's failing on them. all their boards had ivy bridge in them, interesting right? lol

but ya, Asus might actually be the way to go, now that I think about it.

also, after a 16GB memory upgrade... I'm thinking about doing an eyefinity. biggrin.gif

Well I must be the exception then .. I downgraded from the asus p8z77 to the asrock and I'm running it with a 3770k, couldn't be happier smile.gif
I was having real trouble with the asus board (network instability and bsods)

I'm also thinking about a memory upgrade and eyefinity thumb.gif

Finally a got my Prodigy and i decided to build my rig on Ivy, not Haswell.

Unfortunately got it with 1 broken mount

So my rig will consist of these components:
Case - Bitfenix Prodigy Arctic white
MB - Asus P8Z77-I Deluxe
CPU - Core i5-3570k (i sold my i7-2600k)
RAM - 8Gb Spectec DDR3 1333 MHz CL 9 (2x4Gb) (from my old pc)
HDD - 1Tb Hitachi SATA II 7200 Rpm (from my old pc)
SSD - Samsung 840 pro 128Gb
CPU cooler - Noctua D14
Case fans - 2x120mm as top (default Bitfenix Prodigy fans), 1x200mm Cooler Master MegaFlow as front and 1x120mm as rear
PSU - Silverstone SST-ST60F-SG 600W 80 Plus bronze (from my old SUGO SG07)
Graphic card - don't have yet. I'm going to buy it in august.

I don't have any modding skills and i don't have even tools for it, so it will not be something extraordinary, just one more Prodigy frown.gif I will add more pictures later.

P.S. Who knows what will be the difference between Recon 2 and "just" Recon? Don't know what to do: buy it now or wait for 2nd gen.

Hey, I'll be doing a very similar build and I've already checked some compatibility Issues, some hints:

When you want to use an optical drive the front 120mm on the D14 will not fit.
In the back a normal 120mm won't fit, you'll need a slim Fan, for example the scythe slip stream.
You will not be able to control the D14 Fans over your mobo since they are not PWM, but Y and silent(5V, 7V) adapters are included.

And I have a question for all you proud Prodigy owners:
Is it possible to mod the Case so it can fit 2x120mm in the front with an optical drive installed?
And I don't mean something like this: http://imgur.com/a/2uDCW/noscript

Actually fitting them next to each other by drilling new holes in the front panel.

Appreciate any help. If someone is currently working in a prodigy could you please try it out to get 2x120 in there and estimate if it would be possible to make new holes in the original front. I don't want to make a new front wink.gif

I beg to differ ..





Please check your facts before offering them as advise to others.

When you want to use an optical drive the front 120mm on the D14 will not fit.
In the back a normal 120mm won't fit, you'll need a slim Fan, for example the scythe slip stream.
You will not be able to control the D14 Fans over your mobo since they are not PWM, but Y and silent(5V, 7V) adapters are included.

And I have a question for all you proud Prodigy owners:
Is it possible to mod the Case so it can fit 2x120mm in the front with an optical drive installed?
And I don't mean something like this: http://imgur.com/a/2uDCW/noscript

Actually fitting them next to each other by drilling new holes in the front panel.

Appreciate any help. If someone is currently working in a prodigy could you please try it out to get 2x120 in there and estimate if it would be possible to make new holes in the original front. I don't want to make a new front wink.gif

Please check your facts before offering them as advise to others.

All depends on the socket placement on the motherboard....
