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.
