Having a window instead of the stock mesh side panel may have an effect depending on the video card and what front fan you go with.

Thanks.
But the thing is, would it be a waste to fit a good 230mm intake fan with a soft touch front panel instead of a mesh?

Key

My wife's white prodigy build with the stock solid soft touch front had a 230mm thermal take fan installed in it from an older thermaltake case I swiped the fan from and it cooled just as well as my black prodigy build that had the stock mesh front.

In hindsight I wish I would've gotten a solid soft touch front as the dust buildup of the mesh fronts was stupid and a pain to clean as you have to take the sides of the case off and the one side has all the cables running from it to the motherboard that, in my opinion, are too short (ASUS P8Z77-I Deluxe).

So I'd recommend staying with a solid soft touch front version and it'll look clean and cool very nice, I wouldn't recommend the windowed side unless you're going to add vents to the plexi window, or add more intake fans on top.

Great build, the cyclone looks amazing.
But if you want to change a HDD youre gonna have a bad time, it's much easier to install the HDDs the other way around.

theres 2 1TB blacks in there, itll be a long while before i fill that space, you probably cant see it but my 80GB SSD with windows is mounted on the back wall of the case on the power button side. i also wanted all cables on one side of my case, because thats a non modular psu.

the cyclone coolers do look amazing, they also cool extremely well, fan speed never passes 55% on full load around 60ish degrees in this little case. i also keep my stuff very clean. ive had those cards a couple years now (i have a second that is that cards matching brother) not to mention the cooler is also displayed through a windowed side panel.

Thank you very much, just what I was looking for. Now I just need to make up my mind with the color.

hi fellow members,,, i am about to do my first build, cause i was a laptop user, now want to build my own pc so bare with me im a complete noob, and been reading for almost 6 months to see what should i get. first i was deciding to go with corsair c70 and formula 6, but it hasnt been out yet, so now i was thiking to build a a prodigy with maixmus gene 6
my question is,,,
1. can i fit maximus gene 6?
2. parts that i bought at the moment... asus 660ti, seasonic x 850, corsair 100i (this parts all fit?)
3.parts that i need to be in the build 2 x 3.5 mechanical drives, one ssd (will i be able to fit this parts plus the parts that i bought?)
any other recommendations? as for all in one water coolers, if the h100i wont fit? it has to be as good or better than the h100i

thanks in advance thumb.gif

1. No. Gene is microATX, Prodigy is Mini-ITX (unless you heavily mod it).

2. 660ti no issue. X850 is a 160mm PSU so it will fit but it'll be tight. H100i can go up top without issue or in front if you are willing to sacrifice the drive cages.

3. If you put the H100i on top, 2 x 3.5 and a SSD won't be a problem.

If you're wanting a ROG board in the Prodigy you're looking for the Maximus VI Impact (should be out early next month). If you want the Gene in a Prodigy you can either mod it or wait for the Prodigy M (later this year?).
