[Build Log] Prodigy Permutation, removable ATX motherboard tray, SLI, shrunk PSU,... - Page 2

That mesh looks pretty sweet.

Removable Motherboard try?! That's superbe.

The graphic card seems like a tight fitting, could you rotate the view to see the cooling concept of the graphic cards?
I can't figure out where it gets the cool air from. Presumably a 120mm in front of the HDDs?

That thing really diserves the name "compression build"!
Good luck! Definetly subbed!

I like what you are doing with your case - can't wait to see the results. Cheers

Thanks and I can't wait either.

That mesh was a PITA I have never had to much trouble forming a piece of sheet metal the multiple contours and the little tabs of the top created some challenges.

First time I saw the Prodigy I thought is was begging for mesh, so it had to be done and I am pleased with it so far.

With as packed as this thing is going to be I felt a removable tray was a requirement and it is just cool.
Yeah it is pretty tight there is about .75"/19mm between GPU and PSU in current layout, the 200mm fan up top should supply plenty of fresh air and
I am not 100% set on the PSU and HDD cage locations yet though. Have considered hanging the PSU off the back of the case but would prefer to keep
everything within the confines of the case.
I have been waiting for a name to come to me and I am thinking Prodigy Solid.
Prodigy Solid for 2 reasons:
  1. I used Solidworks for the concept
  2. WinRAR has a compression setting called solid

Thanks for the Side picture. I thought the airflow was the other way around.
I don't like how this concept works against convection.

180° Degree turn of the Motherboard would make more sense. Not only because of the cooling but also because of the connectors.
Seems like it's going to be a hassle to connect everything when it's on the botton.

Suggestions for the name: Prodigy compaction.
Solid kinda focuses on it being sturdy or something.

I didn't mean that the 200 is an intake just that it will pull fresh air toward the GPU.
I prefer to have the cables coming out the bottom and if at the top I would have to remove the mesh to plug anything in versus just tipping the case up.
Once everything is connected I will rarely have need to plug anything in anyway since the front I/O will have 2 USB 3, 4 USB 2, Audio, and 2 E-SATA ports.

Yeah people might not get the meaning of Solid.
Prodigy Permutation
Permutation comes up on Thesaurus.com when searching compression.
I think I found my name. What do you think?
post #16 of 89
Ohh okay so it goes with the convection, sorry about that misunderstanding.

Permutation sounds cool although the meaning is different, it means exchanging, transform.

Maybe some latin stuff? Sounds cool too wink.gif

addenseo -ere [to make thick or compact].

addenso -are [to make thick or compact].

compingo -pingere -pegi -pactum [to put together , construct]; [to confine, lock up, conceal]. Hence partic. compactus -a -um, [constructed, built]; hence [firm, compact].

You left out part of the latin translations I kinda like this one.
comprimo [to press together; to press tightly]; hence [to embrace; to check , restrain, suppress]. Hence compar. adv. compressius, [more (or rather) concisely]

comprimo - short for Computer Primo or the translation I like double meanings.

Didn't mean to leave anything out, sry.

If you want to name it like toilet, okay: http://www.megabad.com/keramag-renova-nr-1-comprimo-tiefspuel-wc-a-53498.htm

Just a bad joke tongue.gif

Names are like colors, a question of taste. Take what you like the most. thumb.gif

Nothing exciting but here is a little progression.

Removed the top fan mounts

Left the lip since it adds rigidity to the panel

I think this is going to be the new home for the hard drives used a couple old PATA drives for a mockup


Now on to my first set back. Went to grab the mail and had a package which should have been a good thing.
I open the package expecting my 12mm standoffs instead it was some light bulbs for a vehicle so now I have
to wait even longer to do proper motherboard mockups or fab some standoffs from m3 screws and spacers.
Gotta love it when you get a wrong item and the lights are broke to boot.

To help convection, I think the fans should all be blowing air out of the top and sucking cool air from the bottom. Didn't know if this was already intended, just noticed that the fans were used as intake on the render. I love the layout though, can't wait for more updates. thumb.gif
