Well decided to bite the bullet, rather than ask someone else to do it, got me a dremel 3000 (on offer £30) and decided to do it myself.
huge thing for me as i am a complete noob where diy etc is concerned
Prepped the bay, drilled out rivets etc, covered with masking tape, measured where i needed to cut

About 30 minutes later (took my time) got it all cut smile.gif

Put some u-channel to cover sharp edges and where the metal is showing, put it into position in my case, just awaiting on my rivets and rivet gun now

Just got to find away of putting both my ssd and 2.5 inch hard drive down the one side of the power supply, i know there are the startech 2.5 dual bay, but not looking to spend that much.

Awesome! Looks like you are all good now!

He modded the frontpanel to put it at the bottom I think mate...

Question for some of you fellow owners:

Are these screws (circled) for the handles?
wubsmiley.gif
I ask because I assumed they were, but they feel like they're installed with loctite. I'd like to get a concrete answer before I wind up stripping the head on the wrong screws.

I'm painting the handles pink to match the rest of the case.

Edit: As Yanks8981 said, indeed those are the screws for the handles.



Got them painted and reinstalled. Just waiting on 5 feet of pink EL Wire to show up so I can start working on the hard stuff.

I believe so. There should be 4 total for each one, 8 total for top and bottom. If I remember correctly from my first Prodigy, they were not difficult to remove, but you will want to be careful so you do not crack the top piece they screw into.

You can drill new holes just slightly back in the top mounts to be able to fit both at the same time. The only other part is that you will need some way of shortening the optical bay to a sufficient length.

I had to do this, to get the recon in and my h100i
post #8998 of 11740
Sup guys!

First post here on OC, so i'll try not to sound as dumb as possible smile.gif

It's been a few years since i built my last rig, a full size ATX powerhouse radiator of death, and i feel as if i should build a new rig. But as of recently, going to conventions and lan parties and whatnot, i've seen more SFF PCs pop up here and there, so i did a bit of research, and came across the bitfenix prodigy. Stumbled onto this forum, creeped about 600 pages, yada yada, then decided i wanted to go this route. The build i plan to work with won't happen until late this year/early next year, so i've got some time to do some research. Until then, i have a few questions to ask, and i figured you guys would be able to answer them for me!


First off, let me share what i'm planning, so you guys can call me a freakin' genuis idiot for selecting what i've selected thumb.gif

Bitfenix Prodigy (duh)
ASRock Z77E-ITX
Intel Core i7-3770 Ivy Bridge
Corsair CX500M (i know people say you probably won't draw more than 400W, but i like a bit of headroom)
Corsair Vengeance LP 16GB (1600)
EVGA GTX-760
Samsung evo 840 SSD (undecided on harddrives for now)
Corsair H100i


Now, i have a few questions regarding placement of certain things, moreso the H100i.
As far as i've read and understood, you do NOT have the modify the case in any way to mount the cooler, but you will need to remove the optical and drive bays for it to fit, which i'm alright with. But is there anything else i need to do for the front end of the case? (i've seen a few answers to this, but not sure if it applies to me yet.) I want to mount a Spectre Pro 230mm fan in the front for intake, and probably a 120 on the back for exhaust (along with the h100i for exhaust) for a positive airflow through the case.

Second (and slightly embarrassing question):
Being a guy who's always built rigs with a CD/DVD drive in them, i have never once owned any system that did not have one of these. With that being said, how do i install an OS onto a system that does not have any drive? I've read somewhere that you can format a flash drive like a boot drive, and do it from there, but i want to be sure from someone who knows.

Thanks!

Your first question is 100% correct, and some people recommend putting rubber washers in between the case and the front fan to make whatever rattling they might have had stop.

As far as installing an OS from a flash drive, it is 100% possible and there are many different programs that allow you to do so. Personally if I am making a singular OS drive to boot, I prefer the program Rufus, but if I am making a boot/diagnostics drive, I prefer YUMI. Both programs are fairly self-explanatory. All you need is a 4GB flash drive (usually good for just a boot drive), and an .ISO file of the OS you plan to install. I get any Windows OS that I want through my school and my Dreamspark account, but if you don't have those options then you can buy a copy of the OS you want to install, extract it from the CD (on your current computer) and then follow the steps whatever program you decide to use (there are a bunch), and you will have a bootable flash drive.

As far as installing an OS from a flash drive, it is 100% possible and there are many different programs that allow you to do so. Personally if I am making a singular OS drive to boot, I prefer the program Rufus, but if I am making a boot/diagnostics drive, I prefer YUMI. Both programs are fairly self-explanatory. All you need is a 4GB flash drive (usually good for just a boot drive), and an .ISO file of the OS you plan to install. I get any Windows OS that I want through my school and my Dreamspark account, but if you don't have those options then you can buy a copy of the OS you want to install, extract it from the CD (on your current computer) and then follow the steps whatever program you decide to use (there are a bunch), and you will have a bootable flash drive.

I use and like rufus
