4 out of 5 eggsAwesome product but bad costumer support

Pros: Excellent flexibility to put component inside or modified, feels very solid metal

Cons: the top handles and the bottom stands are made of plastic, and what is holding them is plastic so in time will brake

Other Thoughts: Bitfenix doesn't follow on there costumers after sending them the pictures of the damage and invoice from newegg no response back

5 out of 5 eggsBest mini-ITX case. Period.

Pros: Super easy to work in, small and easy to move around if you don't want it taking up a lot of space, accommodates all hardware you would put in your ATX build

Cons: Smaller case means fewer graphics cards, RAM sticks, etc; somewhat expensive

Other Thoughts: Recently did my first build in this case. Super easy to work in and easy to figure out, even for a noob.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet like Sherbert

Pros: Amazing paint. It feels...rubbery to the touch and high quality. I prefer this style much more than the glossy finish my previous case had. No fingerprints.

Power supply screen on the bottom. Very thoughtful.

I'm not a pro at hiding wires in the cases as some of you, but I was able to do a very nice job with just some twisty ties and a little bit of planning. With some effort and a small sized power supply, you can comfortably cram and tie down extra cables in the power supply housing, improving air flow. The main thing is to research the size of your power supply. I used a small CX430M and it worked out well.

Cons: The handles/legs can make the case wobbly on a flat surface, but a piece of paper or some unused rubber feet from Ikea do the trick if it really bothers you. That being said, I carried the case via the top handles after I completed my build for a few feet and feel confident you could transport this case safely. I do not see the handles breaking if you use this for LAN parties.

Other Thoughts: I'm only running the rear fan and my APU heatsink fan and temperatures are great. The front panel only has holes for air flow around the outside (the black trim). There will be some intake, but not as much as the other Prodigy cases with mesh front grilles. I could see the Bitfenix 200 fans still creating enough inside pressure to pull a good amount of air through, however. Just something to keep in mind if your system is more power hungry and thus warmer.

Pros: Nice looking case,great cooling.in my opinion the best mini itx thats outthere.

Cons: If you planing to install 2x 120mm fans on the front you're gonna lose your optical drive bay! Handles dont look like theyre gonna last long.

Other Thoughts: None

4 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Pros: Exceptional air flow
Huge amounts of HDD expansion
Plenty of room for hiding wires
It's beautiful
USB 3.0 side ports
Really freaking orange

Cons: No mounts for fans smaller than 120mm

Other Thoughts: I am really happy with this case. As far as airflow goes there is a huge amount of combinations possible for designing your own fan setups. One thing I find annoying about this case is the power and HDD indication leds. This case sits by my desk and these leds are BRIGHT. seriously bright. With my Asus board the standby light is a fast blinking indication and in combination with the lights in this case stand by mode turns my computer in to a strobe light. I will be soldering in a limiting resistor at some point to dim these down a bit. Oh also this case is really orange. REALLY. ORANGE. stay far away if you don't like orange.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice looking case

Pros: Really sleek case. It has a great look and feel to it.
It's amazing how much modification can be done to it, you can literally take everything out and turn it around if you so choose.
Has a lot of mounts for case fans and hard drives.

Cons: None really.

Other Thoughts: it would be nice if it came stock with the drive bays turned around. You have to do this if you want to put in a full size graphics card.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for low skill builds

Pros: This case has a great feature that I personally found very useful; it has a horizontally mounted motherboard tray. This makes it very easy to access the on-board ports from either side of the case. The handles make it easily transportable, and the dust panels are great for preventing buildup. The stock fans are quiet, even on full power, and the mounting points are easily accessible. The strange materiel that coats the entire case actually protects it quite well and makes it very easy to work with. There are almost no sharp edges on the outside of the case. The back of the case is very easily accessible, and the case itself is relatively light for its considerable volume.
My build was for a small gaming PC. It fit a 272mm (10.7in) card nicely, along with a closed loop liquid cooler, a Blu-Ray drive, and three hard drives, one of which is a 2.5 mounted on the side panel. The power supply cage has enough room in it to stow any extra cables that aren't needed, and the entire case has excellent room for cable management, if not any hard points for mounting them to the actual case itself.

Cons: 1. The top fan mounts are a problem. If you want to use any kind of 5.25 inch drive, you cannot use either of the top fan mounts without having the drive sticking too far out of the case. There is the possibility of modding the case by drilling holes further back on the dust filter support, except that would block the dust filter from latching with anything but completely flat screws or bolts.

2. This is a small problem, but the front removable drive bay in my case came in crooked and jammed in place. It was almost like someone just shoved it in there and didn't care if it was the right way. Since it was metal, it bent slightly. This doesn't affect me, since I had to remove it anyways to fit my graphics card in.

3. The front panel is on the side. This is the only major feature of this case that could use a serious redo. Due to where this is set up to run and how short some cables in the current setup are, the side panel has to face the wall, which makes it annoying to reach around and press a button, then realize it was the reset button instead of the power. Also, the LED headers were not labeled with positive or negative symbols, making me have to guess as to which terminal was which, since the wires are all black. I missed the first time, but that was an easy fix.

4. This case rocks. Literally. The base handles are the same rubbery materiel as the others, and, although they don't move when the case is sitting still and you accidentally bump it, they do give a little if you have enough weight in or on the case, making it tip ever so slightly to one side or the other. In my build, the case does it to the left because the computer has a very substantial graphics card.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I would recommend this case to another person building a small profile gaming mini-ITX system, one who has not built a computer before especially. this case is easy to work with, very manageable, and can be changed very rapidly if modifications need to be made.
I run the following system in this case, and it works like a dream;
ASRock 787E-ITX Motherboard
2x 2TB Western Digital WD Black Hard Drives
1x 2.5in 120GB Hard Drive from a dismembered laptop, mounted in the side panel
ASUS Black Blu-Ray Drive
ASUS GTX660 TI-DC20-2GD5 Graphics Card
Corsair Hydro Series H60 Liquid Cooler Loop
FSP Group AU-500 Power Supply

5 out of 5 eggspleased

Pros: Its really orange. Really really orange. If you don't like orange, please mentally move this to the cons section. The case is easy to work in, has room for everything, and the default fan configuration is very quiet. Dust filters work well. Handles are sturdy enough to carry the case. I love all the SSD mounting options(door,psu compartment wall, trays). Also, its orange. My i74670k and Radeon 7950 fit well, and run with acceptable temps even when overclocked. This case fit my hyper212 evo cooler as well. Did I mention its orange.

Cons: While the black interior looks really nice, it does make cable routing and finding things on the inside of the case exceptionally difficult without a flashlight. This isn't the fault of the case, but its very difficult to find orange accessories to match this.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case, very functional

Pros: Awesome color

Great air options (If you buy a 230mm fan and a 140mm back exhaust or intake fan you can take the 2 120mm fans it comes with, attach them to the top, and literally cover every hole on this thing and create a very interesting airflow dynamic)

While it can be tricky to handle at times, everything is made to fit in this case. And though it's big compared to other Mini ITX options, it's probably the only Mini ITX that you can realistically put something like an i7 into and plan to game with.

Fully customizable - basically nothing is soldered to the case, you can remove anything and customize as needed.

Cons: Not as compatible with other BitFenix products as you'd hope. Specifically the 230mm fan and the Black Mesh front with orange outline.

For the black mesh front - The Orange doesn't match. It's close, but it is Not exact. Hardly noticable, but if you want this to be your baby and you want that front intake fan to grab decent air it's pretty disappointing. I might just paint the rim black or something (since there is no black option for the mesh fronts you can buy seperately). However that panel does fit just fine. It's just the color.

This case supports a 230mm fan which basically only BitFenix makes. If you install that fan in this case horizontally you will not be able to put on the side panels because of the board on the right panel that has your power button, USB and such. The board will run into the fan.
If you install it vertically it'll fit but it's still pushing into the board pretty hard, and that's unfortunate. I'm pretty confident if you install the fan After you put that side of the case on you may be able to fit it just fine vertically, but the issue with that is you won't be able to open the right panel which is the non-video card side (the more accesible side). It creates inconvenience. Especially since you can't even install the fan without removing both hard-drive cages (about 6 screws for the bottom one)

Other Thoughts: I wish they could have put their own product line into better consideration. It all feels solid still and I'm still a very happy buyer for the most part, but now I feel like I'm making sacrifices. BitFenix isn't a brand I'm learning to trust or love leaving this situation, it's just a brand that has 1 or 2 products I like, but I don't think I'll be expecting sound compatibility with anything else of theirs in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsPleasing Design, Just Not "Mini" Enough

Pros: - Great build quality and finish
- Unique color really POPS
- Lots of room for a mini-itx build, fits full-size graphics with removal of HDD tray

Cons: - Not "Mini" enough, almost as large as my old NZXT Micro-ATX Case

Other Thoughts: I have slowly been moving down the scale in computer builds, originally made a 2nd gen i7 ATX build, then moved onto a 3rd Gen i5 Micro-Atx build. Now ith Haswell out I'm making a Mini-Itx based gaming system but unfortunately the Prodigy just wasn't "mini" enough.
