Frost (BitFenix Prodigy Build Log)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I just wanted to share my first build on here. I'm not a big gamer. This is mainly a work/home computer.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Case: BitFenix Prodigy (white) (Mini ITX)
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770 Processor
Mobo: MSI Z77IA-E53 LGA 1155 Intel Z77
Memory: Mushkin Enhanced Blackline 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3 SDRAM
Video card: MSI Radeon HD 7770
SSD: ADATA XPG SX900 2.5" 256GB
PSU: AURUM 92+ 450 (PT-450M)

CPU block: EK Supremacy (nickel)
Pump+res: Koolance Reservoir and Pump, RP-1250 (single bay w/ front display)
Radiator: EK-CoolStream RAD XT (120) (push/pull w/ gaskets)
Fittings: EK Straight Compression Fittings, BitsPower Rotary Compression Fittings
Tube: Feser Tube UV Hose - 3/8" ID - 1/2" OD - SKY BLUE/UV Blue

I also ordered a few Darkside cables.

All I've got now is the case:


March 14 2013

Got my RAM, CPU, and mobo today:

Turns out the radiator won't fit on the back 120mm mounting spot as I had originally planned, so I have to put it at the front. This means that I need some 90 degree compression fittings. Until then...

Got all my parts, it is pretty much done now...

Like the specs. That's gonna be a fast little system you got there! Any ideas on the GPU, or are you going to use integrated graphics?

Thanks guys! As for the GPU, I think I am going to stick with integrated graphics. A GPU would be overkill for my needs now that I think about it (and the money better spent elsewhere) smile.gif

I would still recommend having a discrete card just in case you do feel the urge to play a game every now and then. A decent card would be an EVGA 650ti, they are only about 150 dollars and are also short cards so they will fit in that case while allowing for the front HDD rack to remain, here is a link:

good luck on the build

Thanks for the recommendation, can that card be water cooled? I can't seem to find any blocks for it.

I'm sure there's a water block somewhere for it, but I don't know off the top of my head

Very nice, I've got an order in on this case and some parts. I'm going to mod it for m-atx biggrin.gif. Look forward to seeing the rest of your build.
