Bitfenix Prodigy comparability, what's your cooler?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I just got my Prodigy and I don't think my Noctua C14 is going to fit! I'm looking for a new cooler and I'm not sure what's the biggest cooler I can fit in there. I think I saw a Phanteks PH-TC14PE in someone's build but I can't be sure. The Corsair Hydro's are a little too loud for me since I'll be folding 24/7. I'm getting db numbers from FrostyTech.

Also, does the cooler get int he way of the Asus daughterboard? I'm thinking of getting the Maximus VI Impact but I'm worried the "Impact Power" card will be in the way. Anybody have ideas on this?

Will you have a video card? I have a h60 in mine, I used a cougar fan to get it quieter smile.gif
If you don't have video card in it, then you could loop the tubes from aio cooler that way... I think mine also go over the ram as well.
It was a tight fit for mine, but it worked. Just took a lot of patience. A LOT.

Yes, I'll have a card in there. This building is turning out trickier than I expected. Does anyone have experience with the Asus mini-itx's with daughterboards?

Unfortunately, I have no experience with that particular mobo. I have a gigabyte a88x wifi in mine....
