Building a new PC using the BitFenix Prodigy

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Recently I upgraded my PC and thought I may as well upgrade my sister's PC with my old parts while I'm at it. Her PC consists of a Q6600, 6gb's of RAM @ 667 (you read that right) and a recently purchased MSI Gaming 270. The only thing she really wants is a small case as the NZXT Source 210 she's using now is too big for her setup.

These are the parts I have/will have soon (from her existing system and from my old setup)

3570K, CORSAIR CX430, 8gb's of Corsair Vengeance LP 1600mhz (2x4gb) , BitFenix Prodigy (will order soon)

What I need to complete the system is a cooler, I'm actually thinking of giving her my H80i but I don't know if that'll fit in the case, and a motherboard, I'm thinking of either the ASRock Z77E-ITX or the Asus P8Z77-I, but they're not definite choices and I'm open to suggestions. All I need is 3-4 USB connectors, and 2 SATA ports.

So the questions I have are, will the H80i fit in the Prodigy? & what motherboard should I go with? I probably won't be overclocking the 3570k to the 4.5ghz I originally had it at but a motherboard with good overclock-ability would be good. I have a budget of around £140 for the motherboard and £80 for the cooler IF the H80i definitely won't fit in the case, so £220 altogether but the cheaper, the better tongue.gif

I'll be shopping at Amazon.co.uk /Ebuyer.com/ Scan.co.uk/ Dabs.com for the parts so let me know what you have in mind.

Thanks in advance smile.gif

EDIT: I've just found out that the H80i will fit inside the Prodigy, so now the only question I have left is what motherboard to choose.

I personally use the GA-Z77N-WIFI because I'm running a hackintosh. I might post in the Prodigy Owner's Club and ask what people on there are using.
