P.S. xbournex i sent you PM. Answer me plz if you can.

Looks good. It'll look way better when your sleeved cables arrive. For the first time building, great job!
Cable management is a lot of trial and error but it makes fun if you find a good way to route them smile.gif

Whats your impression on the Spectre, i assume its a 200mm or is it a 230mm? Volume with full power?

The first 120 in the top seems weird to me since it's just blowing out cool air.

This is not Spectre - this is Cooler master MegaFlow 200 blue LED, coz it is impossible to buy bitfenix products in Ukraine. The only way - to order from somewhere, like i did with Prodigy. So i can't say anything about Spectre.
Both top 120 will work as intake, but now only one works - i need Recon to connect all fans to it.

As some allready know I got my panels from the lasercutter and did some modifications to the case.

At first I drilled some holes...
to fit a mini Himuro next to the PSU


Then it was about time to mount the Buttons of a V351 propper to the case rear side and add a Powerplug for the Fans on my Mora


Fitment of my designed Panels is not so bad, sadly not perfect, mostly because of the lack of Original measurements and drawings.
The mounting holes from the Sidepanels to the case will get some tuning with a small File and then it should be done.

General Fitment on the case is nealy Perfect as I wanted them to be.




even the Original Front will fit nicely as it would be done this way originally. At least good enough for me.


Sideblade/Sidepanel with Aquaero bracket.

(here you can spot the Floorpanel underneath the 140mm Fan)

:facepalm: Blurry shot of the Fangrill of the 240 rad


Final Shot of the GPU side, where I testfitted the new floorpanel with a 140mm Fangrille cutout, fan, rad and Radgrille
The radiator if off center to do a rasier connection from the 140mm rad on the floor to the GPU inlet in a nice bend, and second to that I get the space I need for the Aquaero on the the other side.


Now I need to get rid of the sharp edges, bad fitment and scratched off all the Panels.

Personally, and perhaps it's just your style thing, but I don't care for the grills on the inside of the case - seems like they would detract too much from the potential airflow.

The Fangrille on the top240 rad is just for optics.
The Fangrille on the bottom 140 rad prevents damage to the radiator fins as the Pump will be placed above the Radiator

Hello everyone,

I'm considering "Joining" the club and getting a Prodigy. I'm going to be going back and forth quite a bit from two different places soon and want a more portable rig as my NZXT Phantom is not practical.

I've been looking at quite a bit of information about m-itx builds and the prodigy, it seems to me that the flexibility inside the case as well as its aesthetics just make it fantastic.

However I have quite a few questions which I can't seem to answer clearly as there is no real defined opinion on it.

1. Whats the best m-itx board for overclocking? I am looking at getting a 3570k and want to air cool it. How fast can I get it on an m-itx? Or are the drawbacks really bad?
2. If I air cool it, will I be able to fit a large heat sink like the noctua or will it block the fans at the back and the top? (also room for the GPU??)
3. Does the mesh front make a huge difference on cooling or is the plastic one fine?
4. Whats the best setup for the fan on the front? 230mm? 200mm? or 2 x 120mm? etc
5. Does anyone like the slime green one? Or is just me?

Advice would be much appreciate. I found a few overclock benchmarks but they were so misleading I couldn't make a proper decision on it.

Thanks.

hello everybody--

just curious if anybody have any ideas on how to maximize airflow...
heres a couple diagrams other ppl have made that I've come across

http://i1302.photobucket.com/albums/ag128/GabrielDrake/prodigy_airflow.jpg

-- this one will eventually have a h100i on top.. but for now using 2 120mm fans should i have them set as intake or exhaust or one of each. I have one already behind the optical driver as exhaust.\

http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1171399/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL


I currently have a 120mm rad set to my back exhaust fan, with a 200mm front intake, with 1 120mm top exhaust.
Does it make any sense to have the top fans as intakes as well??
