[Build Log] H2L-Bit

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I thought maybe some of you here would like to see another build log containing the popular BitFenix Prodigy. It's an awesome case and I really can't wait to start modding it and building up my system. This won't exactly be a lightspeed build log, but I at least hope to keep the updates flowing and the people who view the thread entertained. If you want to see what I do with this build, tag along! If not, I will kill you.....


I haven't really decided on all of the hardware just yet as I am still in this nebulous phase that has me going back and forth between certain parts, but as the thread progresses I will try and come up with and nail down a solid hardware list. With that being said, my immediate situation does not really help out my decision process and it certainly sets me back quite a bit money-wise:



Now you see me:

And yeah, I know the sticker is peeling off and there's a little scratch there. I don't like it anymore than you probably do lol, but things happen. rolleyes.gif



No you don't:

And here they both are all up on each other, feeling pretty bummed I would imagine... frown.gif

As you can see here, the power supply that I have been using for the past couple years is just completely incompatible with this case design. I'm not really sure why the power supply cage is laid out like this, but I guess there aren't too many power supplies out there with connectors like the one on this OCZ, or maybe there aren't too many power supplies that are as long... That's really all I can speculate because my experience with the enormous number of power supply manufacturers is pretty limited. Anyways, I now have the option of modifying and cutting through the power supply cage to make room for the connectors, or buy an entirely new power supply. Can you guess what a college student with no access to power tools is going to have to choose? So yeah, this little hiccup will obviously set me back about $65-100+ depending on what power supply I buy. And now I have to worry about what will and won't fit in to this rather limiting power supply cage. I think the saddest part is that I have no use for this OCZ power supply now so I'll have to sell it to fund a new power supply purchase. mad.gif

Anyways, I'll keep the pictures flowing as best I can if any of you are interested.

All comments/suggestions/ideas/etc... are welcome!

Thanks for checking it out. wink.gif

ANY modular PSU would be screwed in this case... Or at least very bloody difficult!

Yep! tongue.gif I have come to this conclusion as well after a bit of reading. Hindsight, the reading of this information would have been useful before buying the case lol, but I think I still would have bought it anyways. It's an awesome case!
