This review is from: BitFenix Prodigy Midnight Black Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Pros: Great Case, I like the hole vents on the side, Great for a graphic card to breed. Came flawless upon arrival, no dings or scratches on the case. Been waiting for this case to arrive, the design is nice. Probably not really a con, but bottom is kind-a wobbly a little. They should make the design stands a little flatter, instead of rounded off at the bottom.
You can put two 120mm fans on top, and the back one 120mm fan. you can put a bigger fan at the front, 140 or 200mm fans. just in case you want to know, it doesn't give much detail on the site.

BitFenix Prodigy Midnight Black Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
Power Supply, non modular. make sure you pick non-modular on the bitfenix case. Modular will not fit in the case, non-modular already fits really tight in the case.

plus I add BF4 Combo keyboard and mouse and mouse mate. and twist ties. don't forget to get extra fan header adapter, there is not enough on the motherboard. I also added thermal paste, not needed, because the H80i cooler already has thermal paste. Just in case, unforeseen things happen, nice to keep thermal paste handy.
make sure you shift the water cool hose to the right a little bit, it will hit the ram. but, you will have a clearance of 1/8s of an inch, then you will be good to go.
decide to post my specs, people keep asking about if water cooler will fit. And yes h80i will fit. but, you won't be using CD-ROM drive player on it. Cooler will take the space.
Pros: Great CPU, nice design. I like the no pins on the CPU. came with a fan heat sink. I personally didn't use it, not saying there is nothing wrong with it. Bought a H80i cooler with it. kept temperature at 46c, in case. I decide to get an overclock CPU eventually.

Pros: Intel SSD arrival came flawless, and some with extra stuff. it had SATA cable and a drive holder, which I didn't need. the case already had a place for it. It good to have it, just in case. Plus it had some screws with it . Great drive, works great on windows 8.1 pro.
