[Build Log]
The Prodigy

Hi all.

First, I'd like to say few words before starting this log.
1) I'm first timer in this forum and my english isn't the best, but I'm trying to keep it all simple.
2) I would be glad to hear if you have any ideas or thoughts about this project. thumb.gif

In this project I'm posting some of my ideas what I'm going to put into practice when I'm getting the parts next week. biggrin.gif
And yes, I'm going to build my new gaming rig to the BitFenix Prodigy case.

The parts in this project are:
  • Intel Core I5-3570
  • AsRock Z77-ITX
  • Kingston Hyper-X 2x4Gb 1600MHz
  • Asus GTX660 TI DC2 2Gb
  • Chieftec 650W
  • A-Data SX900 128Gb SSD
  • Corsair H100
  • BitFenix Prodigy Black

Later, when I get my order of some lights and front control panel, I will install those and add some pics here.

In the picture underneath shows the layout of some parts what I have planned.
Layout picture (Click to show)

Green: Will be replaced with BitFenix Spectre 140mm (Orange LED)
Orange: Will be replaced with BitFenix Spectre 230mm (Orange LED)
Blue: I will remove the optical drive mount and install the Corsair H100 cooler
Red: Here will be the control panel and I'm going to make some custom brackets for it.

I don't have any further plans for the lighting yet, but for sure they will be something orange. smile.gif

[Update]

Today i got a little update for the project.
Shopping spree. (Click to show)
I made a little spin in the city today and some items got caught to my sleeve. wink.gif
I bought some decorative tapes, wire clamps, abrasive disks and some wire itself.

First I planned to spray some parts with orange but when I saw those tapes, my brains were
immediately making some new visions.

The other one is (freely translated) "Black diamond" tape and it looks like little bit like black sandpaper,
but it is much smoother.

I bought 2 different sizes of those wire clamps for the PSU wires and I will make some new wires for the fans and SATA-adapters.

And for the last, I bought the abrasive disks 'cause I didn't have any, and I need to cut those custom brackets.

[Update]

I got minor setback in the project. The motherboard what I got was broken 'cause it didn't post any video.
And now I need to wait week or more to get new one. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Anyway I got other parts (excluding the mod parts) and now I can plan better of those modifications.

Here´s at least a picture of those components what i still own. smile.gif

[Update]

When I'm waiting the motherboard, it´s time to make something to the case.
I had an idea of logo to the side panel and my girlfriend made it possible. (She´s more artistic than me) wink.gif

Here´s what we achieved with the 'Black Diamond' decorative tape.
I still want to make something with that tape to the case, but don´t know what... yet. smile.gif

New update finally. smile.gif
Got the new motherboard today and more of those modding supplies.

I didn't remember to take much of pictures from inside and few of my attempts failed.
First of all the cable management is pain in the ass and my custom SATA power cable didn't work well.
I'm going to fix those another day, but important thing is that it's working.

I included orange flexlights to the case and I attached them to the H100.
Then I painted the frame of the front panel (the gray part) with orange spray paint
and the Bitfenix logo too of course.

Because the blank side (with the Skyrim logo) is all black, I decided to paint the power- and reset button
with miniature paints a little. smile.gif

I'm going to order some orange LEDs to replace the power and HDD LEDs.

Front profile.



The I/O panel, with the mod´s.
