5 out of 5 eggsHow sweet inverted is.

Pros: You can ignore the previous review about poor cooling. Spring for the 230mm Bitfenix bottom fan, install a 120mm at the rear, and if you want to get crafty, a 120mm slim fan up front behind the front facia (pop the logo out for some extra flow too), plenty of cooling here for overclocking and big cards. Also, plenty of room for vga cooling, I fit a Prolimatech Pro-MK-26 on my GTX 680 in my first instal. Now running a Titan Black with no problems.

Love the front mount PSU, love the inverted board for cooling. I'm an owner of a PC-A05N and a Raven 3 too, so I can enjoy the layout of this case also.

Cons: I second that the expansion bracket is a bit finicky, I miss regular old screws. But, once tightened down, it has supported the above heavy card and cooler, even while being moved from one house to the next.

Other Thoughts: Love this case, especially if you've got nvidia cards. I had no problem putting my EVGA Stinger Z77 in here, Scythe Big Shuriken, running an i5 3570k at 4.2 ghz and staying around 62C.

3 out of 5 eggsPretty decent case; not the best

Pros: A decent size with pretty good flexibility in terms of where certain parts could be shoved in. It looks pretty nice and sleek, and would look great with a black-and-green themed build. Great for those with a tight budget and who just don't like neon lights shining in their face all day whilst using the computer like myself. Due to its small size, it's great for those rooms with not much available space. The manual included is also very nice for anyone who is just starting to build pcs.

Cons: Fairly poor optimization for air flow. You'll either need a lot of extra fans, an extremely high quality yet also small in size cooler, or you will need to literally cut a hole through the front of the case. The inside is a bit cramped if you're wanting some high quality goods in there, but it's livable. There's a vent on the top of the case to make up for the lack of ventilation in the front, however this is honestly my main grouch about this case. It makes it very easy for crud to collect on the top of the pc and for it to fall in and potentially damage some parts. The wiring for the power and reset buttons made things a bit more awkward considering they put everything on the side where you'd need to open the pc to get into the guts of the build. If you want to save yourself a lot of hassle, you'd want to flip and switch the sides of the case, but that'd make it look a little ugly and would get on my nerves. The HDD lights were obnoxiously bright too, so I permanently unplugged them.

3 out of 5 eggsOK with some issues

Pros: nice size, decent airflow in my configuration three Noctua Fans and CPU cooler it's actually got lower temps than my previous prodigy ITX build which this case is related to.

Cons: Took a bit to figure out that the patch cord from the back of the case to the PSU was bad. given this was a completely new build with everything new except for the PSU (Seasonic X460)

I tore the whole thing apart to check everything before I realized that the patch cord supplied with the case was the culprit - so for now that's bypassed... rather inelegantly till I can find one to replace the original with.

Other Thoughts: could care less about the Nvidia branding in fact I swapped out the side panels with the ones from a previous build that used the prodigy case that was moving on to my parents... The Prodigy was very easy to build in this not so much. I thought it would be alright but was surprised at how cramped things were, that owes to the depth of the case and how things fit in. Its best to assemble as much as you can prior to mounting the motherboard in the case. In particular make sure you have the fans where you want them first otherwise with everything in place they can be a bit of a pain to move around particularly if like me you use silicone noise/vibration mounts for your fans like the ones that typically come with Noctua fans

5 out of 5 eggsBitFenix BFC-PHM-300 case

Pros: I like the size. When i got this i thought it was going to be a little bigger but its small. Fits my micro ATX board and my video card. and a full size power supply. It also fits a lot ... i mean a lot of hard drives in this case for the size. was not expecting to get all 6 drives in there but i did.
The plastic parts are nice and sturdy the frame is strong. the rubber feet are really nice.

there are lots of places to put HDD/SSD and fans if you dont want all the HDD/SSD

Cons: So far the only thing i dont like about this case is how the motherboard is mounted. Its upside down. There is no good air flow in this case i have had to do a little rigging to get this to breath good so my cpu fan is not going crazy.
My video card is blowing strait out the top of the case witch kinda blocks the two fan mounts up top to blow in or blow out air.

Witch ever person decided to put the front ports on the side of the case should be fired!!! there was almost no room for me to get them from usb 3.0 cables and audio/mic hooked up. and not run across the cpu fan... i ended up cutting the cables and adding more wire to them so i could just run them along the bottom then up the back to the spots they should go.

the hard drive mounting bracket that holds 3 2.5 and 2 3.5 drives needs to be build better i had to take a drill to widen 2 of the wholes witch stripped the paint off. not really a big deal to me.

Other Thoughts: This thing may not have good air flow to a point but there are some whole in the bottom of the case for 2 fans and that helps out if your not going to put HDD/SSD there. helps with the air flow but still limits it by how much space is between the case and the desk/floor/what ever its sitting on.

the front IO Ports ... why they did this is ... ya dumb... if you can work around the length of the cables and get them routed to a good spot then its fine to open the case but it was a pain to get the to where i could open my case with out discoing my cables ... dumb

other then the cons and how much i really dislike the IO ports this case is nice i like plenty of room to put in a after market CPU heat sink or water cooler. even thought the mother board is upside down i like how the video card has a nice port to breath from. if you take some thin hard form and place it on the inside of the side panels it helps with sound plenty of room for that.

Oh one last thing usb DVD are not cool they are a pain to deal with.
Maby one day i may install a mine slim dvd drive and cut a whole in the front for it.

5 out of 5 eggsCan't go wrong it this

Pros: After owning large cases for some time now, getting a small case was more appealing for its portability. This case is very light, but at the same time, extremely solid. The side panels are insanely strong. You can't bend it no matter how hard you try. The rest of the build quality is top notch as well, however, the front and top bezels keep fingerprints really easily.

Building inside this case wasn't hard. Though, It is somewhat crowded and requires bundling more cables if you don't have a modular PSU.

Overall this is a great matx case.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: The internal is exactly the same as the Prodigy, so get pick the look your like better.

4 out of 5 eggsFashion over functionality

Pros: looks amazing
total nvdia fanboy case
size
cooling options

Cons: it took me 4 hours to to tear apart one rig and put it into this case. ive done these jobs many times but this case was an entire new level of trial and error. The rework was unreal on this case. one wrong step put you back so far. the cable management makes this a really difficult build.

Whoever decided to put the front panel connectors on the main door of the case really botched that. that adds a whole degree of difficulty to making minor changes.

Other Thoughts: really cool case.

1 out of 5 eggsLooks Nice, That's About It

Pros: The case looks nice.
I got the case under $100 + free shipping.
It is supposed to have plenty of room for fans.

Cons: Manual is completely vague.

Hard drives kept in the bottom are held in with rubber gaskets and screws that aren't long enough. Gaskets aren't even mentioned in the manual. Weird way to hold in hard drives, don't know why they didn't go with a more conventional method.

Power buttons are a joke. For whatever reason they decided to have the power, reset, audio and USB ports on the side of a door that opens up, cables have to run across from the inside of the case to plug into motherboard. The cables are flimsy at best and more annoying is the fact the power button cable is ruined, right now the only way I can start my PC is by running a key down the middle of the jumper pins.

What's even more stupid is they decided to place these on the side of the panel you'd open up to access the motherboard. I guess I understand accessibility, but now you got all these cables hanging out when you need to do ANYTHING inside the case, and they aren't long enough so it's easy to pull them out of the motherboard.

Cable management is a joke. Hard drive layout isn't thought out at all.

Other Thoughts: This case looked really nice and the reviews I DID read were pretty much shining.

The reality is the way they have this case set up, it's a pain in the buns any time you have to open it up to work around in inside.

The fact that the power button cables came messed up and I have to start my PC by running keys down the middle of the jumper pins really, REALLY upset me.

It just seems like zero thought was put into almost every aspect of the case, boasts a lot of features that seem nice, but in reality don't really work all that well.

I'd return this piece of junk if it wasn't going to cost me to ship it back and a re-stocking fee.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat case

Pros: Excellent case, it's bigger than I thought, but once you start working on it, it's actually perfect size for someone like me looking for good airflow and smaller size. I am going w/ a Noctua NH-D14 cooler w/ Sapphire Radeon R9 290. I have a Silverstone 180mm fan at the bottom taking air in w/ a custom filter made from the bottom vent cover that is included. I also have a 140mm noctua fan blowing out the back, 2x120mm noctua fans blowing in from the top onto the Radeon's fan cooler. I've actually cut out the frame of the top vent mesh to be able to fit the fans outside of the case within the top plastic panel. I am working on cutting a hole in the side panel to place 2 more 120mm fans as ventilation. So far everything is in except the video card and the side panel fans and it's putting out about 36C temps at the CPU at idle, not any indication of anything, I haven't done any stress testing yet. cable management was excellent, there is a cubbie hole to the right of the PSU for hiding cables, there is some work involved but not rocket science here.
very sturdy design and build, I love the green vents in the top and front panels, the top vent should be green too...

Cons: the rear PCI slot mechanism doesn't really work all that well, I wish it fits tighter or had room to screw down the PCI inserts for fan controllers and such, which I have in there. The fan controller wiggles if you mess with it and it can definitely pop out if you wiggle it enough w/ the slot fastener tightened down.
I like the side embossed graphics, but will make cutting holes a bit more difficult
there should be SSD mounts on the back of the motherboard tray, and the front under the front plastic cover
the power cable extension that attaches to the PSU inside fits better w/ PSU plug sockets w/ certain orientation, unfortunately my seasonic is the opposite orientation so installation was a little tricky

5 out of 5 eggsbeautiful simplistic case

Pros: absolutely beautiful case. I think it's worth the extra cost to go for this one over the original phenom m. the steel is super sturdy. almost no flex to it. all the edges are folded over to avoid cuts. the soft touch on the front and top Os WONDERFUL. looks great and feels even better. the bitfenix logo up front adds just a small touch of elegance. comes with what I believe are 2 bitfenix spectre 120mm fans which is a nice addition. there are tons of air cooling options. no lack of places to put fans of several sizes. also lots of places to put drives. I like the dust filter up top. very few rivets on the case so you can disassemble most of it. thumb screws are also very nice.

Cons: the 5.25" drive slot is pointless. would have liked to see that removed from the prodigy. fortunately it comes with an adapter for a hard drive or its pretty easy to remove the slot entirely. the outside attracts fingerprints a lot (only on the black model). side mounted i/o is not the best placement but it's not a huge deal. instructions could be a bit more detailed.
