Prodigy M Build help

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I recently came up with the idea that my old rig is outdated and, most important, too big form my house.
I'd really like to build a small form factor pc that I can move through the house and that's powerful enough to run most of "next gen" games.

Here's my component's list: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/1Luwe

Of course, for the Maximus Gene, I must go with a Prodigy M.
Hard disk, ssd and gpu are taken from the build I already have, so the price will be lower.

My doubts are on the CPU Cooler: the Prodigy M is a great case, but is there room to install a radiator? Will the H80i be sufficient with light oc (3.5-3.6 GHz)?

In addiction I'd like to mod it a little bit, in order to have the entire build in black and red. I'm thinking about some fans with red leds, for example.

Have you some suggestions on this build? wink.gif

Thanks for your time,
Stefano

A lot cam be done with that case but in regards of a closed look cooling system if its a 120 or 140 you can put it in the back and if its a 240 or a 280 it will fit snug in the top at the expense of a second GPU

My doubts are about the airflow, on both cases: the only intake fan is on top, but fresh air is immediatelly sucked from the gpu cooler and exhausted out of the case through pci. Of course the rad fan is intake and it will blow hot air into case and exhausted form bottom fans.
In case I decide to put a 240 rad on top the gpu would suck only hot hair, and this would not be really good. How can other components be cooled?

If your thinking of putting a rad on top I highly recommend liquid cooling your gpu

Yes, agree. But in the other case?
