Trying to plan out my Prodigy build now. Going to have a window on the right side panel, and either I'll use 1-meter NZXT white LED strip or a white LED BitFenix Spectre Pro 200mm fan at the front to illuminate the interior of the case that way (as well as create a glow around the front panel edges). Not sure which effect would look better -- the LED strip might be an overkill.

Check my build log for some pictures regarding the LED strips. It's a bit too over powering for me, but I'll play around with it some more.

I will be getting a new waterloop in the near future, but until then I will either have to use my old scythe samurai ZZ, or buy something cheap to use while i wait. I'm not sure the ZZ will handle Ivy very well, but not sure I want to buy a 212 evo just for the sake of a few weeks.

The stock cooler for my 3570K did fine. I could even OC to 4.2GHz with a negative offset (lower than stock voltage). Temps were in at around 70 though.

Unfortuantly the Asrock board is very restriced with compatible coolers, but to the (poor) cpu mounting location.

I've put a PDF online with a list of compatile heatsinks, if you are still in need of help.

Link: http://db.tt/4lGrPJ4V

Don't all Noctua heatsinks use the same mounting gear? If an NH-L12 fits, then an NH-D14 should be compatible as well.

EDIT: Spoke too soon. On Noctua's compatibility page for the NH-D14, it lists the Z77E-ITX as non-compatible.

Yes, whilst i have read that the coolers in question will fit without blocking the PCIe slot, i am yet to see any proof of this or hear from anyone directly confirming this, hence To Be Confirmed. =)

Yes i believe the backplates are the same but the physical dimensions of the NH-D14 mean it will not fit, due to the position of the CPU socket on the motherbaord, without blocking the PCIe slot anyway.

Do you guys think I'd be able to squeeze in a non-modular Rosewill Capstone PSU into the PSU compartment? The Capstone is listed as 163mm deep so that's just barely over the maximum recommended length for semi-modular PSUs which protrude a little more than non-modular.

Personally I wouldn't. It's cramped as is and I can't imagine trying to squeeze a big rat's tail flat against the psu cage. Best case scenario: you either make it work with standoffs or dremel the cage, worst case: you have a fancy new paperweight.

I'd stick with recommended size or ones other members have already used successfully. Much safer imho.

The PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk III 500W/600W just about fits in (it's a bit tight but fine as long as you plan where to put the cables in advance). It's a good PSU and it looks sexy as hell with a white case as it creates an all white back.

Loving my Prodigy! Add me , please!!

Though I still don't have all the parts for it yet, I've been busy making a side window. So here's the end result, still need to join the grommet/piping edges, so it looks a bit unfinished. The window is of tinted "smoky" acrylic, so it looks black without any source of light and tinted-transparent with light shining through.

I'm going to have white LED lights inside - either in a form of a LED strip attached around the underside of the "roof" or through the front 200mm white LED fan. Probably the LED strip. Ordered 140mm white Spectre Pro fan for the exhaust as well.

Raw window cut:



Acrylic window attached with strong double-sided foam tape (as well as piping, held together by 3M thin double-sided tape)



Back side of the right side panel:



Case with my phone in it providing white LED light



Side window with some lights on







Missing a power supply (Come on, Silversone ST45SF-G) and graphics card to put everything together. Also still on the fence between i5 3570K for $190 vs. i7 2700K for $250.
