[Build Log] Bitfenix Prodigy - Water-Cooled Gaming Rig

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Oh Aye!

All aboard the Prodigy Mini-Bandwagon!

I was inspired when I saw what everyone was able fit in this awesome looking case and decided to start again from my HAF-922 SLI GTX470 Rig and jump to a fully watercooled CPU with a single GTX 690. Most everything is on order and I'm looking to starting assembly this weekend. I'll be updating this as I go.

I'd love your feedback, and I'm sure I'll need advice. This is intended to be a top notch gaming rig. The plan is to overclock and fully mod, some now some later.

Many thanks to everyone who have been posting there builds and documenting the changes. I'm new to the forum, only frequenting for the past week, but already I've found a ton of great references and information. Hopefully I can pay back with my own experience shared here.

Hi - good luck on your build. smile.gif

I don't see a GPU block in your list - or are you planning to order the EVGA Hydrocopper version?

I thought about it but from what I saw it's not really necessary with the GTX 690. The card just doesn't run all that hot. If i find the opposite to be true later on I probably will order it and add it in though.

The PSU you have chosen will not fit. Only the chassis of the PSU is 160mm. The female connectors on the back add 10mm.
