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

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.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat case for a microATX!

Pros: I really like the look of most BitFenix cases and this one is pretty slick.

The handles are awesome for two reasons: They are handles AND whenever I carry this guy around I can place a wireless keyboard on the bottom handles (I guess the stand at that point) and it makes for a neat carrying spot.

The edges inside are smooth and the craftsmanship throughout is pretty solid. Many options for drives, fans, and other components.

Cons: The placement of the USB / power button causes the wiring from the side panel to be annoying to deal with.

It is close to or impossible to attach right-angle SATA cables to SSDs on the detachable metal panel. This is not a big deal as the side panel has more mounting options.

Airflow concerns if you're overclocking or have a build that is very demanding, but with some planning you can work around it.

Other Thoughts: If you have some extra cash to throw towards this baby, do not hesitate. This is a solid case.

5 out of 5 eggsExactly What I Wanted

Pros: Well made, the case feels sturdy and comes with a healthy amount of extra hardware.

Cons: the placement of the side power and USB is a bit weird since you have to get so much plugged into the motherboard from that panel.

Other Thoughts: Great mATX case, it looks very stylish and dos what I need it to do, hold all my parts.

4 out of 5 eggsFirst case I ever bought, I now understand the cable management issues.

Pros: Beautiful and great for people who want to make it do something unexpected. It has handles which was a must for me. I love it.

Cons: The reason I don't give 5 eggs is because of a few issues that should have been fixed before production. First, the power buttons rest on the opposite end of the motherboard. I've been careful but if I take off the panel with the buttons to check the parts inside or the wires, i could rip the button connectors from the motherboard and then I would have to remove a lot of components to fix it. I could place the button panel on the other side like others have done but then I am left with upside down letters on the buttons....

Everything is a tight fit, and there is no easy way to hide cables. I was lucky just to keep them out of the fan area. But I mostly think this has more with my lack of skill with cable management more then the fault of the case.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it

Pros: Small and very stury, you can travel with it and not worry about it breaking. I have the white one and it does not pick up scratches and scuffs like one would think. Very customizable. Lots of room. Ignore the people that are complaining about their 30 year old optical drive takes up too much room (literally that old, research it!) Poor people should not be buying cases, let alone reviewing them.

Cons: Kinda heavy, fan mounts should be moved out some. 120mm fan mounts colser to MB than the 180mm mounts. Should be opposite. Ram blocks from having push/pull on water cooler. If it was the other way, there would be room to spare.

Other Thoughts: Would buy it again (probably will in black version) for another build
Would and did recommend to a friend

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Looking Case for Gamers

Pros: Looks awesome.
Lots of storage for such a small case.
Room for dual graphics cards.
Lots of hard drive/SSD storage.

Cons: Cable management.
Adding a disk drive will block a fan and possibly connectors on the MB.

Other Thoughts: My rating: 4/5 - If cable management was better it would be 5/5.
It's great for gaming or video editing. Dual graphics, 32GB ram, a max of 9 ssd/hhd's. Overall it's a great case if you don't mind buying an external dvd player.

-The power supply in the front works just fine. It isn't an issue at all, in fact it's the only place it could have been placed.

-My airflow: My fans suck air in from the top and blow out the back with one fan. So I have positive airflow. The filter on the top blocks a lot of dust from coming into your system.

1 out of 5 eggsProdigy M case

Pros: Great looking case. Lots of space inside case for hard drives, fans and ventilation. Includes screws and basic manual.

Cons: Fundamentally flawed design. Because motherboard pwr, reset, LED, usb cables route to side panel, installing a DVD drive severely restricts access and completely blocks access to some of the motherboard connectors.

Other Thoughts: The main design flaw was the decision to place the power supply at the front of the case. Had the power supply been put in back above the motherboard header panel, there would be no need for the internal power supply power supply cable. The motherboard could then slide down ~1" inside the case which would then allow for a DVD/bluray drive to be installed without blocking motherboard connectors. The space formerly occupied by the PS would then be available for hard drives.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Case with Minor Defects, Terrible Customer Service

Pros: This case is a prefect setup for a power mATX build but is probably best left to more advanced system builders. Things can be bit tight if you do not pick your parts correctly.

Cons: Case arrived with two cracked screw mounts that connect the flex bands at the bottom to the actual case. I contacted BitFenix customer support and forwarded them pictures, sale receipt, and the serial number for the product per their request. I have not heard back from them in over two weeks. I have bumped the email twice now and still have not gotten any response. I wish they would at least have the professional courtesy to get back to me good/bad news :(

1 egg due to customer service, would be 4/5 otherwise

Other Thoughts: Premium case at a premium price, non-existent customer service.

1 out of 5 eggsZero Support - BitFenix Products Have No Warranty!

Pros: -Looks good
-Can hold a fair amount of components in a small space

Cons: -Rubber hard drive grommets for 3.5" HDDs are hard to trust if you ever have to transport the computer. (HDDs fall out easily).
-5.25" Optical drive mounting not well thought out compared the rest of the case
-QC defects

-No Support from BitFenix
-No Warranty from BitFenix
-No Phone Number for BitFenix

Other Thoughts: This could be a great PC case. However, it is unfortunately hampered by BitFenix's complete lack of support for their products. Users on BitFenix's forums have consistently complained that BitFenix can take weeks to respond to support requests or ignore them completely.

Personally, I've sent multiple support requests over the past 3.5 weeks and have yet to receive a response. One of the USB ports on the side of the case does not work. This simple issue has gone completely ignored to this point by BitFenix.

I have 2 days to return the case to Newegg and will be forced to do so if I don't get a response.

4 out of 5 eggsVolkswagen Bug of Computer Cases

Pros: This is a great case for certain builds such as the following: Lan Party PC, HTPC, and for someone who lives in a Studio lol.

Love that it supports water cooling, spacious on the inside but small on the outside. Dual video card room, supports long cards, fit my MSI 7970 easily with the optical drive in.

Will only support water cooling without the topside fan unless you have a small radiator H60 size. The top fans can be installed which I suggest.

If you do not fully utilize everything this case offers it will feel like a waste. Meaning use the heatshield. Install top side fans, and do some decent cable managing. This is not a corsair case you are going to have to get creative with your cable management.

Realize I do not spend more than $100 on a case. I think it is stupid to do so. $200 gets you better hardware and a decent case cost around $60 200R anyone. Lets be honest who is going to take their Full Tower PC outside of their house unless they are moving?

The construction of this case is great hard metal sides smooth matte finish. Reminds me of those old Apple Towers, sleek and stylish. But sturdy, Handles I repeat the handles can easily be removed. Leaving you with a cube.

If you do this I suggest leaving the heatshield on and having it on a flat wooden, or tiled surface. Otherwise leave at least the boot handles on or mod it with legs on the bottom.

Comes with everything needed to complete your build. USB 3.0 to 2.0 connector, Rubber washers, cable ties, and plenty of screws.

Cons: Worst instructions I have ever seen for such a complicated case. This is not your standard tool-less easy case. Stuff goes in weird places to make it fit. The instructions are IKEA style (pics only) except you cant call them and ask what the heck does that mean?

I just now realized that I killed my HDD by not placing the heatshield on the bottom. I didnt know what it was, nothing in the instructions states it. I deducted one egg for the killed HDD and bad instructions.

The HDD is partially my fault since I should have look it up but I thought it was optional. I did a bunch of reading before hand and must have missed it. Still stupid that one thing with weak magnets can ruin a hard drive.

Worse yet you can mount them on the side using the included rail but I am still tryiing to figure that out. I think I am pretty good at reading picture instructions. I have done quite my fair share of IKEA shopping.

The side panels are so tightly fitting that when placing them back in you have to be extremely careful to not chip the paint. That was included in the one egg deduction.

Other Thoughts: If you are a novice/first time builder I suggest watching videos wait there is only one with subtitles featuring the Prodigy M. That would be nice Bitfenix lets get a video breakdown showcasing each and every part and how to use it with someone that speaks english.

Seriously though great buy. I highly suggest it for a MATX Gaming build or HTPC I basically combined both because I am beastly like that. Rig in the case is

Gigabyte A 5 5 -DS2 Rev 2.2 FM1 mobo
Amd Athlon IIx4 651k Oc'd. 4.0 GHZ
8 GB Corsair Ram
Corsair H60
Sapphire Radeon 7950 OC edition
Ceton InfiniTV 4 Tuner
Corsair CX 500M

I will be rerouting my cables tonight see what happens.
