Sleeving is quite easy if you know what to do. Id suggest to check lutroO custom's sleeving guide since they are pretty detailed and cover all types of cables and both methods (with or without heatshrink)

I decided to sand the edges of the motherboard tray so theres a possibility of edge lighting ! Also the motherboard tray is removable now wink.gif

A small update here is the removable motherboard tray. You just remove the back plate of the case and the 2 thumb screws from the bottom and the motherboard slides back smile.gif


Enjoy.

Hey there,

Extremely new to the forums but I am already a huge fan of this design/build. I'm looking to do something similar myself as I would like to transfer from a HAF 912 to a more compact form factor. However I'm not huge into water cooling (nor do I have the money for it), so I was wondering if you think a similar mod (outfitting the prodigy with a full ATX board) would work with an air cooling set up? Or do you feel there wouldn't be enough space for proper air flow. Thanks and goodluck! thumb.gif

I finished the shaping the mesh of the right side panel, It was a pain in the @ss but it looks sweet. Its unbelievable what you can do with a hammer and some decent craftmanship

Looking forward to seeing if that mesh pattern fits into the case side. I've been thinking of doing something similar. Any hints on how you did it, I'm guessing you cut the pattern out with a jigsaw and then put the mesh in between and either used a hammer or pressed it.

Excellent work so far, thumb.gif

I think that two 20cm fan at the front and back in push pull and two 120mm fan on the top for exhausting are more than enough to keep it cool

I'm sorry to say it, but that is not a great idea, becouse you'll have (if i understood correctly) 3 fans blowing air out, and one pulling air in. This will result in negative airpressure inside the case and that will mean that air will be drawn from everywher and that a lot of dust will get in your case. ALWAYS have more (filtered) intake fans than you have exaust fans

i thought that the front fan with the back will make a stready airflow to the whole case ansd the top ones willjust blow the hot air from the top out . Tbh never thought of the negative air pressure but i guess he can swap the top fans so they blow inside or i am wrong ?
