ProdigyProdigy


Meticulously crafted and beautifully engineered, Prodigy redefines the Mini-ITX chassis. The compact housing is suspended by handles made with BitFenix FyberFlex™ Composite for easy portability and maximum shock absorption. On the inside, our modular FlexCage™ gives you the flexibility to install up to five 3.5" hard disks or 2.5" SSDs, or remove it entirely to fit up to 240mm watercooling radiators and long graphics cards. For added flexibility, additional SSD locations are also included, and a choice of Midnight Black or Arctic White with interchangeable front facades mean Prodigy will suit your individual style. With tool-free convenience, two USB 3.0 ports, filtered intakes, and proprietary BitFenix SofTouch™ Surface Treatment, Prodigy is the compact case with no compromises.

Highlights
Beautifully Compact

Beautifully Compact

With its subtle curves and clean lines, Prodigy is distinctly BitFenix. The compact mini-ITX body is suspended by two elegantly crafted handles that give Prodigy a solid yet modern look that makes it a perfect addition to any environment.

Unmatched Flexibility

Unmatched Flexibility

Despite its small stature, Prodigy is engineered for maximum flexibility. Remove the top HDD cage to fit long graphics cards up to 320mm in length. Bolt a 240mm water cooling radiator in the top, or if the build demands it, remove the entire HDD cage and put the 240mm radiator in the front, while still being able to install up to five 2.5" drives. With multiple installation options, Prodigy is a small case that truly does it all.

FyberFlex™ Composite Technology

FyberFlex™ Composite Technology

Both the top and bottom handles of Prodigy are made from BitFenix FyberFlex™ Composite - a revolutionary material that is not only flexible, but incredibly strong. Fastened on both the top and bottom of the chassis, these handles are a convenient way to carry Prodigy, while providing added shock absorption during transport.

Maximum Storage Potential

Maximum Storage Potential

With the ability to install up to five 3.5" HDDs or nine 2.5" SSDs, Prodigy provides loads of storage options. Set it up as a high octane portable gaming rig, an attractive home server, or a full on NAS. With Prodigy, the possibilities are nearly limitless.

Choose Your Own Style

Choose Your Own Style

Your computing environment is your own space, which is why everything in it should be uniquely you. Prodigy comes in both Midnight Black and Arctic White, making it a perfect fit just about anywhere.

Ready for DIY

Ready for DIY

To get you up and running in the shortest possible time, Prodigy is loaded with DIY-friendly features. The unique motherboard tray makes it easy to fit tall CPU coolers, and filtered fan intakes keep the interior and system looking superb. Finally, the Prodigy's tool-free drive locking mechanisms make installing HDDs an incredibly simple affair, while cable management features keep your internals neat and tidy.

High-Speed USB 3.0 Connectivity

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Little Case

Pros: -Sturdy: This case is almost entirely made from metal, which surprised me and I was pleased to find out just how high quality the materials were.

-Beautiful: What really caught my eye in the first place was the awesome design of this case, and it's even sexier in person.

-Versatile: For being so small, the case really does give you a wide range of configurations to work with. BitFenix gives you ways to utilize the entirety of the case.

Cons: -Size: Personally, I was looking for a small case that could fit easily in a dorm room or be transported to a LAN party. However, some may be disappointed that they can't fit all of their preferred hardware. Just keep in mind that the case is small, don't set your expectations too high.

-Control Panel: The control panel is a nice addition, but not well thought out. Having it on the side may make it difficult to actually use it conveniently.

Other Thoughts: Overall, this case is perfect for a $500-600 entry level build. Or if you're just looking for a PC that's easy to transport. It's easily configured to your needs, sturdy as they come, and amazingly sexy looking. I recommend it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little case

Pros: Small size
Great use of available space
Has the potential to fit a lot of watercooling equipment

Cons: The only con I noticed right away is that it appears they have changed the back wall of the PSU area. In the manual and pretty much every build I've seen, it was solid with cable management cutouts on either side. It allowed for the mounting of an SSD on this back wall, but now it is wide open. It isn't a deal breaker at all, but I thought it should be noted. This will allow the modular PSUs to fit easier so it's a give and take.

4 out of 5 eggsFreeNAS MiniBox

Pros: This chassis is like a Micro-ATX Tower! I should have done the measurements prior but it works out just fine. Needed the 5x3.5" bays for my NAS setup. Can install a 5.25" to 3.5" converter to upgrade the NAS later for a 6x3.5" setup. Came with two 120mm Fans, 1 front and 1 back.

CPU = Intel Pentium G3258 Haswell Dual-Core 3.2GHz
MOBO = ASRock E3C226D2I Mini ITX
RAM = Crucial 16GB (2x8GB) ECC UnBuffered DDR3 1600
OS HDD = 16GB USB (Fastest possible USB2.0)
RAID HDDS = WD Red 3TB x 4
PSU = CORSAIR CX600 600W ATX12V v2.3 80 PLUS BRONZE

Cons: The chassis control panel is nice and all but the cabling concerns me when you need to just close the chassis up first to get the needed slack in order to cable it to the mobo.

For the tray, you need a short handle screw driver or a L driver so thus why, a removable tray would make sense here.

CON 1 = No removable mobo tray.
CON 2 = Side Control Panel cabling (Because I love to cable manage)

Other Thoughts: I have 10+ yrs in the Tech biz with a good amount in the PC/Server Mfg business of OEM whiteboxes to Enterprise class rack systems. I love Lian-Li cases and started going to the normal steel/plastics for cost and efficiency with Cooler Master and now BitFenix. Quite impressed so far.

Hope my Burn-in test of 1week with the FreeNAS goes well.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat ITX gaming case

Pros: Generous interior space for an ITX case without being too large. Reasonably priced customization options for the front and side panel. Good cable management and flexible interior configurations for fitting full-size ATX parts.

Cons: Tight working space once you start getting parts installed. The 'front panel' connections (power, USB, LEDs) are on the side for a very clean look but tethers the panel to the MB making it a little difficult to work with late in your build.

Other Thoughts: I didn't give this a 5 star rating only because it's over used. Be sure to check dimensions when ordering parts, especially the graphics card and CPU cooler, although I was able to fit a full length card and a pretty large cooler (Silverstone Argon). Plan your build sequence from the center out and put cables in their final placement as you go -- you're not getting back in there without removing parts.

4 out of 5 eggsnice case for small builds

Pros: Everything fit.
The case disassembles easily to install hardware.
It serves my needs for my HTPC build.
Very open inside with good airflow
Can't wait to keep filling it with more hard drives!

Cons: A few things to consider:
The rubbery handles and stand makes it a bit wobbly and I was a little unsure about picking it up by handles.
Indifferent about side/front panel placement, would have liked usb ports in front. case light it way to bright... glad that is on the side.

Other Thoughts: Plan your build with this case carefully and in what order. Watch videos if need be. Once the motherboard is in there is little room to maneuver. Removing the drive bay caddy helps, leave it out until finished or don't even use it unless you have lots of drive.

I would suggest a modular or full mod PSU with this case.

Overall I was pleased. For a HTPC build with extra room for expansion this is the case to go with.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Mini-ITX case

Pros: There's a lot of room and flexibility in the case, with plenty of mounts for fans to ensure plenty of breathing. The "handles" are a bit of a nice touch too, if a little weird due to their flex.

PSU breathes through a dedicated and filtered port on the bottom, which is nice. There's also enough holes and such for cable routing.

Cons: A modular power supply is a must if you don't want to deal with a ton of wires that dangle around. If you use a 160mm long PSU, you're left with about an inch of clearance where the cables come out. The front IO is also on the side, which may limit how you want to place the tower. It could also use some provisions for filters, but I bought some magnetic ones that do the job just fine.

It's also bigger than most ITX boxes, so much so Bitfenix made a MicroATX version without changing the dimensions, just the innards.

Other Thoughts: Honestly if I waited a while for its release, I probably would've gotten the Corsair 250D. But as it is, the case is really great for a high-performance mini-ITX build.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT BUY

Pros: Looks good.

Cons: Arrived broken. Bitfenix tightens their scres too tight, resulting in their "FyberFlex" Feet/Handles, resulting in the tabs breaking. This affects how the case sits, as well as the side panels fitting. Tried contacting Btifenix's customer service, but they have not responded (it has been 5 business day, yet they claim they will respond within 2 business days). Will be attempting to see if Newegg will send a replacement.

Also forgot to mention Bitfenix sells their Handles/Feet for around $8. However it is around $20 with shipping. I broke down yesterday and attempted to buy them, but their site was not allowing me too.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I am never buying a Bitfenix product in my lifetime, or recommending them to anyone.

4 out of 5 eggsKewl Case

Pros: For the price, this case is perdy kewl. Limited case space, but it's good for specific uses, and the design is kewl. It's worth it just to have as a decoration.

Cons: The BitFenix Spectre Pro fan is not properly designed to fit this case as the instructions provided with the fan indicate. Please ensure you rotate the fan 90 degrees to ensure that the panels fit properly.

5 out of 5 eggsFun Case to Work With

Pros: This case has been a pleasure to work in. My first mini-ITX build was in a Cooler Master Elite 130 and I loved the case but the cooling options weren't there (I had a Corsair H60 liquid CPU cooler that was terrible). So I got rid of that case and bought the Prodigy, which was my original plan.

The inside of the case is such a breeze to work in. Sure it is cramped when screwing things in place, but there is tons of room for just about any type of build. I wanted to air cool my CPU but needed space for a Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO and this provided me plenty of space with an additional 120mm exhaust fan above it.

My temperatures are superior to the Cooler Master Elite 130 case with the Corsair H60 CPU cooler. My CPU temps were hovering around 110F with the fan at 1600 RPM (the sound was noticeable across the room). In my Prodigy case I am sitting cool at 85F and 700 RPM. This was amazing to me as the case is virtually silent. Remember, I dropped the liquid cooler in favor of the air cooler (half the cost) and it was well worth it. When I am playing games it does heat up but my GPU and CPU are still 15-20 degrees cooler than when they were in the CM Elite 130 case...plus it is quieter.

I wanted to try the Phenom case, but it didn't have a vented side to keep my GPU as cool as I would like. The Prodigy is very forgiving for people that don't plan their assembly well. I was able to make adjustments with ease by opening a side panel and accessing what I needed. This was definitely my favorite build.

Cons: The handles create unnecessary bulk and don't really make it look better. I would rather have the case without the handles as it would feel more stable and my wife wouldn't complain about how it looks (although many people like the unique appearance).

Other Thoughts: Although bigger than most mini-ITX cases, it was worth it for me because it offered more cooling options and less stress when I needed to make changes.

Build:
Intel Core i5-4670k
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO CPU cooler
GA-Z97N-WIFI mini-ITX mobo
G.Skill Ripjaw 8 GB DDR3-1600 RAM
WD 1 TB HDD
Mushkin 128 GB SSD
Sapphire AMD R7-265 2GB Video Card
Bitfenix 230 mm intake fan
2x120 mm rear and top exhaust fans
