Prodigy MProdigy M


Reimagined with micro ATX compatibility, Prodigy M enables users to install multiple expansion cards while maintaining the same compact dimensions and sleek look of the original Prodigy. Suspended with two FyberFlex Composite handles for shock absorption, Prodigy M can be easily transported to the next room or to the next LAN party. The inside is incredibly flexible, offering space for SLI or Crossfire dual graphics technology, up to four 3.5" hard drives or five 2.5" SSDs, and even space for slim 240mm radiators. A magnetic heat shield is also included should you decide to fill the bottom with hard drives rather than fans. With BitFenix SofTouch Surface Treatment, a massive CPU cooler cutout, and rolled-edge cable pass-throughs, the small case that does it all returns with a vengeance.

Highlights
Full MATX Compatibility

Full MATX Compatibility

You asked, we delivered. Prodigy M now features full compatibility with micro-ATX motherboards, all while maintaining the same compact dimensions as the original award-winning Prodigy. Featuring an all-new layout, Prodigy M is truly flexibility reimagined.

Sleek and Compact

Sleek and Compact

One thing that hasn't changed is the sleek and clean look of the original Prodigy. Sporting two exquisitely crafted handles that suspend the body, Prodigy M has the same modern yet elegant styling that made the original the small form factor case of choice for PC enthusiasts the world over.

Tremendous Flexibility

Tremendous Flexibility

Of course, Prodigy M couldn't carry the Prodigy name without the flexibility to match. Aside from both micro ATX and mini-ITX compatibility, Prodigy M can be configured with up to four 3.5" HDDs or five 2.5" SSDs for excellent storage potential. Adding in a micro ATX motherboard gives you up to four expansion slots, perfect for additional expansion cards, or even SLI and Crossfire dual graphics capability.

Multiple Cooling Options

Multiple Cooling Options

To keep things running frosty, Prodigy M can be outfitted with up to five fans for maximum cooling. Bolt a thin 240mm radiator on top, or perhaps a 120mm radiator on the rear. With the roomy interior, even tower CPU coolers up to 160mm will fit with ease. No matter how you prefer to cool your system, Prodigy M has you covered.

FyberFlex™ Composite Technology

FyberFlex™ Composite Technology

Prodigy is born for DIYers with rich 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. The tool-free drive locking mechanisms make installing HDDs an incredibly simple affair, while cable management features keep your internals neat and tidy.

Easy to Build In

Easy to Build In

To reduce the amount of fiddling with hardware to a minimum, Prodigy M comes with user-friendly installation features such as a massive CPU cooler cutout to make swapping coolers a snap. Not using fans on the bottom? Use the included magnetic heat shield to prevent warm air from re-entering the case. Finally, anti-vibration pads help further reduce errant noise from working hard drives.

BitFenix Quality

BitFenix Quality

Rife with special touches, Prodigy M is a BitFenix chassis through and through. Coated with SofTouch™ Surface Treatment, Prodigy M's FyberFlex handles feel soft and smooth to the touch. A luxuriously coated interior, a brushed aluminum BitFenix logo, and rolled-edge cable pass-throughs ensure a quality experience you've come to expect from BitFenix.

3 out of 5 eggsThought it'd be better

Pros: Looks cool, has great fan options.

Cons: Plastic supports break without warning, cable management even with a modular PSU is still awful.

Other Thoughts: I am likely to try and find another case.

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid at all costs - horrible service

Pros: It's actually a decent case. It's just the right size for powerful components in a LAN party portable package.

Cons: The company service is some of the worst I've ever encountered. I'm now going over 4 months trying to order simple parts from their store.

I tripped down some stairs and broke the handles on the top and bottom. I purchased some replacements from their online parts store. They charged my credit card. I opened a ticket with them and had some back and forth with them saying it'll ship soon, it's coming from China, be patient. After two months, responses to my ticket stopped coming.

I finally opened another ticket yesterday asking why it was taking over 4 months, can someone look into the issue, my last ticket stopped getting a response and was closed out.

The response: "Don't open multiple tickets, please"

3 out of 5 eggsSlightly claustrophobic

Pros: The carrying handles are great. People keep saying that they are brittle and break easily, so maybe I got lucky. I bought this so I'd have a rig to haul back and forth from home to class, and I currently use it frequently when I visit my parents. I usually hold it with one hand, and I've never had issues with it feeling like it's going to break. Again, maybe I got lucky.

It comes with a very large fan, which is a plus. The top grille being removable is a nice feature, but not particularly useful.

Apart from the handles, the case is very durable, with an all-metal design (except for the handles). It's easy to cart around with minimal effort, and after more than year of lugging it all over the place, my case still has no visible scuffs or scratches. Compared to my main tower, where little bits of paint chipped off within a few months, it's fairly impressive.

Cons: The handles are very uncomfortable, particularly to hold with one hand. The side panel which allows access to mount the motherboard is linked to the case with cables, which means it has to awkwardly lean up against the case whenever it's open. It's a very very claustrophobic case. I use a GTX 770, and I have no room for an optical drive. Swapping parts is a nightmare, since there is no room for cable management, so cables get everywhere. You definitely need a modular PSU for this to help minimize the amount of junk. There's not a lot of room for extra hard drives (or even a single hard drive). I recommend an SSD.

The airflow is also pretty bad. My idle temps get pretty high, but once I started gaming, they didn't get much higher. The fans run at top speed most of the time, so it's not very quiet, either. Doesn't help that there's nothing to dampen the sound.

There's a spot for the PSU power connector to be fed into the bottom of the case, but the included jumper cable doesn't fit most PSUs. A little oversight on BitFenix's part.

Other Thoughts: It's a tiny case, so claustrophobia should be expected. This is not a case you're going to want for a gaming rig. The biggest plus is the extreme portability. If you absolutely need to be mobile, this is case for you.

1 out of 5 eggsCase on the feet break and make the cases not useable

Pros: Initially I thought this would be a good purchase. Case has decent airflow and was very good fans. Case can use large graphic cards and looks nice when fully assembled.

Cons: Feet and a handles are poorly assembled at the factory. As a result the case broke from its own weight. The expansion card port bracket is a little wonky too.

Other Thoughts: Once the feet give on the case the case is useless. The case designed to be off the ground several inches to give your psu clearance for intake. With out any support the case is going to kill your PSU.

Do a google search for "Prodigy broken handles feet."


I attempted to contact support for a RMA and I have not heard from this company in over a month. They have closed my ticket with out any communication and they do not have a number to call in the states.

Buy from another case manufacturer. There are much better ones for the price.

2 out of 5 eggsA Hot Mess

Pros: 1. classic looks ( baby Mac Pro look is timeless like a Porsche 911) and striking colors (especially the cobalt blue) 2. SLI doable if you use short cards like MSI gtx 760 itx

Cons: 1. wobbles on plastic handle feet 2. too heavy on left side ( if you use a water CPU cooler and don't mount 3.5 hard drives on the floor of the case) 3. GPU space deceptively small if you don't have a short power supply or you decide to use an optical drive 4. air flow path is complicated (intake fans on bottom suck in power supply heat and intake fans on top fight against natural convection and output fans on top fight with GPU). 5. power supply location blocks front intakes and fan placement 6. just about any other motherboard orientation would have worked better 7. heat shield seems like a kludgey afterthought 8. lots of extra trouble just to have those extra dimm and pci-e slots that come with a matx motherboard

3 out of 5 eggsAlmost Perfect

Pros: Awesome design, nice and compact. Sleek. I was very excited to get this case for my first build.

Cons: This case would have been perfect, but I saw immediately after I took it out of the box that 5 out of the 8 screw brackets (that attaches the handles to the chassis) were broken. On the right side, the two (top and bottom) front handles were already coming away from the case. It's like they tightened the screws in so hard that the plastic brackets snapped. I am incredibly disappointed. For a case a little over $100, I would not have expected this.

And just now I'm finding out that this has been a big problem with many people and that Bitfenix isn't very good at responding to their customers.

Other Thoughts: I'd like to get a replacement because I do still have faith that the next case will pull through for me, but if I were to rewind time and be at that point where I was still picking a case, I probably wouldn't go with this one...

3 out of 5 eggsDem handles break

Pros: Nice small size
sorta looks like a mini mac pro (old version)
great cooling capabillties

Cons: Weak weak weak Rubbery brittle handles on system. Cracked on delivery. Don't expect these handles to carry expensive parts.

Other Thoughts: Go for a Bitfenix Phenom if you really liked the guts on this case. its pretty much the same thing, just no handles.

3 out of 5 eggsGood case, unique desogn

Pros: It looks quite nice and has all the basic features you look for in a case. I like that it has mounts for fans all over the place and it is very customizable; you can remove almost anything you want if you don't need it.

Cons: Because of the placement of the psu you can't really have a front fan even though there is a mount for it. Same reason with the optical drive, it takes room from one of the top fans. Besides this I liked the case and I haven't had any problems with either the building or usage.

3 out of 5 eggsCool interior, but terrible bottom supports

Pros: Nice setup allows for great cooling. Had to move around where the original fan with the case was located, but I really dig the power supply being in the front - easy to work with during fan setup. Colors are great, and the main part of the case is pretty solid. Having the USB ports on the side are a little awkward, but can be convenient depending on your setup.

Cons: The interior is a little difficult to work with, but several panels come off to help you out, so really not terrible.

The bottom supports, however, are terrible. Cracks where it connects to the computer pretty easily. I originally bought the case for traveling, and I kind of thought, "Hey, easy handhelds, and it brings the computer a few inches up to let air in." Just brought my cpu to a charity event when one of the bottom plastic supports cracked. I wasn't being careless, either - I work with a lot of tech both at home and at my job, so I know to be pretty dang gentle. I'm on my second case - the first one I had sent back because it arrived cracked where the support connects to the main case body (should have been a giveaway that the supports weren't good). I just sent out an email to figure out what to do with my current case, but right now, I'd rather get a refund and buy a new case than bother with the same case type again.

If you want to buy this case, don't plan on transporting it often. Or at all.

3 out of 5 eggsNice Case, Not for High End Gaming

Pros: Sharp looking case, well designed from an aesthetic standpoint. Great for normal end user.

Cons: The cons are just as much my fault as anything, however, I want the next buyer to understand what they are getting here.

I have a R9 280x GPU and a decent sized CPU heatsink/fan, 2 HDD and 2 SSDs, a 1kw power supply, a blue ray burner, and 16GB of ram. Good news is, it fit, VERY TIGHTLY,(literally 1mm between the GPU and my blue ray drive) but it fit. Bad news is, because it is soooooo cramped together, the air flow is EXTREMELY low, thus causing my cpu to get extremely hot. I am certain a liquid cooling system would correct the issue, the problem is that there isn't room, with what I currently have in the case, for a cooling system.

Other Thoughts: Again, sharp case and good design for a normal user. I do feel like the internal design could have allowed for a little more airflow.
