Hello OCN, its time to build in my Bitfenix Prodigy! I call it ''Clementine'' and i wanted to share it with you.
It is more a build log than a work log as i am not gonna mod much on it. I will color change it, change the front, change the feet, cut a windows or two and finally probably cut in the mobo tray so my psu cables can breath a little. I would like to do more, i will see how the budget goes.
This build will also be watercooled, Anyway, without further ado, i' showing you a rough sketch up of my project:
You probably guessed with the name, the case will be orange. Powder coated to be a little more precise.

Alright so lets start with the case! First i had to strip it down to make it ready for the sanding.
Every part is now sanded and clean. Ready for the powder!
Color actually came very nicely, almost perfect!
Time to assemble it and see how it look.
As i said, the paint is beautiful and i'm very happy with the result. Time to build in it, i will start ordering part 25th of this month so hopefully i can get this build going by the end of this month or around it. I hope you like it so far and thanks for reading!
