The CM 130 looks just right to me. ATX PSU, long GPU's and can fit a aio water cooler and retains a small size.
It is kinda large, the one thing that doesn't appeal to me about the Prodigy is that it looks like everything was just kinda "tossed in" and sloppy looking, layout wise. Say, if you want to use a 3.5 in drive, you lose a fan, and it has that weird 2.5 in mounting bracket that sits in front of everything.
The only reason I like the Prodigy better is mATX for the 4 RAM slots and dual GPU capabilities. I wouldn't mind mini-ITX, but price is another factor for me, I can't really afford the "good" intel mini itx boards, just AMD stuff. In which, there are not a lot of mini ITX options, at least not as good as the intel counterparts.
