I have now painted my case silver. In case you've wondered what a silver Prodigy might look like...



But it'll only be temporary for the side panels. The paint actually came out a bit uneven (which is hard to see here) and more likely gonna be putting a mirror finish to these panels.

Currently working on my Prodigy.

Do I have to remove the removeable hdd cage? I only have one ssd and need to install a dvd reader

Can you fit a 240 Alphacool UT60 or Monsta in the top?

Will this be enough rad space to cool a GTX 670 and 3570k and have OC room?

Will 4 phase power sectoin without radiators be enough for a CPU without K for gaming?

Im going for ASRock B85M-ITX but will it be enough for gaming?

Im not doing any OC - I will be fine with i5 3.4 or 3.2 but I just wonder if I will burn the mobo if I run it at IBT or when I game?

ADD ME!


Well i have been lurking on this thread for a while, it has been my main source of inspiration towards getting a Bitfenix Prodigy case.

So here it is smile.gif

My first ever watercooling build biggrin.gif


While running the leak test i pushed the foam for the res into the input side to try and reduce the bubbles i had going round the system.


Love this picture biggrin.gif


All assembled


in its place ready to run.


I have more images of the build process and block installs but im sure you guys have seen that enough smile.gif

Components:
Bitfenix Prodigy - Orange
ASRock Z87E-ITX Motherboard
Intel I7 4770k (will overclock once im happy)
16GB DDR3 1866Mhz Corsair Vengeance Pro
Asus GTX 680
Corsair RM 650 psu
OCZ SSD (i forget the version)

cooling:
XSPC EX140 at the front
XSPC EX240 on the top
Laing DDC 1 plus pump
EK-DDC X-RES 100 pump top/res
EK Black 13/10 fittings
EK-Supremacy Nickel
EK-FC680 GTX
2x Corsair SP120 Performance Series High Pressure
BitFenix Spectre PRO PWM 140mm Fan
+ 1 Bitfenix case fan that came with the case.



I love the case, and everything is running now (finally, EK parts are so hard to get hold of in the UK for some reason)
However i don't consider it finished. There are 2 areas in which i consider the build not yet finished, hopefully some of you experts in here can give me some advice?

First off, cabling.
I bought the tools and kit needed to make and braid my own cables for the PSU. however my first problem was that Corsair make terrible plastic connectors for their cables which resist the standard molex tools for removing pins. I needed these corsair connectors (at least on the psu end) because the 24 pin atx cable on the psu end is split into 2 parts, 16 and 8 pins if i remember correct and i couldn't find replacements.
Does anyone have any experiance with this kind of psu and the cables? or know where i can get the correct size connectors for making my own cables?

Second issue, and the biggest one in my book, The pump is noisy.
Not ear splitting noisy, but i was previously running the raw parts on my desk without a case and they were all quieter than this pump even under high load.
It sounds like an old fast fan, but its not consistent, there is lots of variation in its sound as if its catching on something now and again. I have read up and people believe it could be air bubbles but im unsure as it sounds more like the motor itself making the buzz.
I will probably end up draining the system tomorrow and pulling the pump apart and cleaning it out to check for issues which i hope reveals something, as i know it can be pretty hard to get scan to accept parts back frown.gif

Any advice on those 2 issues would be appreciated, and if you cant, then enjoy the pics smile.gif

nice thumb.gif I went the crazy green route...good to see someone else going for loud and obnoxious instead of subtle. the orange throughout is really pleasing to the eye. great job man.

You can install the SSD in front of the PSU compartment, on the screw holes there. Needless to say, mount the SSDs before putting in the PSU tongue.gif
post #9739 of 11727
SSDs can be mounted easily on the PSU-compartment. BUT ... as ccRicers said. Better install them before putting the PSU in rolleyes.gif



See the one 3,5" HDD ... that is "mounted" with doublesided tape. the SSDs behind are screwed into place.
