Powersupply fitting guide:
It's been brought to my attention that it is a tedious process to figure out if your PSU, will fit in this case.
So, here is a quickie field guide on ATX psu specification.
Quote:

Physical characteristics
ATX power supplies generally have the dimensions of 6 × 3.4 × 5.5 (inches) and in metric 150 mm × 86 mm × 140/180/200 mm and share a common mounting layout of four screws arranged on the back side of the unit.

So, the back of the unit (where the IEC connector attaches too) should be 6 inches by 3.4 inches, within a tolerance (a tolerance is a deviation off of a standardized dimension that will still allow universal function, but not conform exactly to spec)

The third dimension is the problem with the case, as the PSU cage is only 160mm deep, or 6.23 inches for you imperial folks.

The way dimensions are displayed changes depending on the author of whatever content you are looking at, so, lets take YumYums's PSU that was asked about, the OCZ ZX 850. (note that it is linked if you wish to follow along.

First dimension we can note under details is: 3.39 inches, which is rather close to 3.4, so within tolerance. The next is 5.91 which, again, really close to 6 inches, so the last measurement must be the depth, which is 6.89 inches, which is over 6.23 inches by a small margin. Yums could probably fit this PSU in his case, but remember, the depth does not account for the space needed for fitting wires into the case as well. I personally account 15mm for wires in my cases, but your mileage may vary.

I hope this helps people, and also, if you are unsure, feel free to ask. It is better to ask any annoying question, than spend more money than you need to. thumb.gif

Compatibility
Cooling
Air Coolers
A few air coolers have backplates that interfere with items on common ITX motherboards.
The Hyper 212+ and Evo have issues with motherboards including the Asus P8z77-I Deluxe. [A full analysis is needed]
Most air coolers 160mm or under can fit with a single set of fans in the top of the case. Taller coolers may fit without top fans and some clever installation techniques. [Full write-up is needed]

Radiators
To find out which radiators can fit in the case, It is best to watch the videos above. but among them are:
  • 120mm
  • 140mm
  • 180mm
  • 200mm
  • 230mm
  • 240mm
[A more detailed write up is needed]

Water Blocks
The only known issues with water blocks are the backplates on the Apogee Drive II and the Apogee HD are too big and cause the motherboard to be raised above the standoffs. A bigger cutout on the motherboard tray can fix this as well as some clever use of spacers.

Internal Components
Power Supplies
The PSU box is 180mm long. The max recommended length is 160mm due to the need to route the cables out, though some was around this include using motherboard spacers or longer screws to allow 180mm power supplies and their cables to fit.

Video Cards
The longest GPU's on the market can fit in this case, including the 6990, 590 and 690. However, only dual slot cards are supported. Thus triple slot cards such as the higher-end Asus DCUII Top cards are not compatible.

Motherboards
There are no known issues with any Mini-ITX motherboards.

RAM
Be sure any tall heatsinks on your RAM (such as Corsair Vengeance and Dominator, and Kingston Hyper TX1) are compatible with your CPU cooler.

Put me in coach, mine's on BO for now, but I plan on doing a portable (wait for this one) Intel based rig that games well enough that its more viable than a laptop inside one of these, (as well as for obvious Epeen.)
BitFenix Prodigy Hall Of Fame

(Someone making a banner, would be amazing!)

The Rules are simple, just like in the Lanboy Air Hall of Fame you need 3 nominations to get in. Your OCN tag and one picture will be posted below signifying your place among the best of the BP Modders. However this time I request that you give a reason why a build be added to the hall, and obviously, no self nominations. This isn't to make votes more or less credible/justified, but to reduce the number of spam nominations and to keep the integrity of the system intact. (As we all can see the number of people that own this case is massive.)

So get nominating!
Winners:

Adamski07


Nominations:

Motokill: 1

Had this case for about a little over a week now and its been amazing. Surprisingly easy to assemble even with the small size.

I meant assembling the entire PC, not the case haha. I've never built a "SFF" build before and its my first time using an ITX motherboard so I didn't know what to expect coming from a Corsair 600t but even given the relatively small size of this case putting everything together was easier than I thought it would be.

I'm glad it was fun, the only reason I'm doing this is mITX that will work with all my other spare parts (9500GT, ATX psu)

I'm going black, start shooting name ideas (Keep with the theme of the other 4 rigs) and I'll make a build log right now.
