BitFenix Prodigy Arctic White Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

4 out of 5 eggs High quality ITX case 12/09/2013

This review is from: BitFenix Prodigy Arctic White Steel / Plastic Mini-ITX Tower Computer Case

Pros: Very good quality. The soft, rubbery texture feels great to the touch. Power and reset buttons are metal and not plastic. Lots of room for drives! You can probably fit closet to 7-8 SSDs/HDD in here!

USB 3.0 on the side is nice, and it includes a 3.0 to 2.0 adapter for motherboards if you don't have a newer board.

Room to add more fans. You can change the front fan to a 200mm (I think thats the size) easily. Easy to add a corsair hydro cooler and mount the fans to the top.

Removable PSU fan filter.

Cons: Bottom support is made out of a semi flexibly plastic, and the case tends to wobble when put on a hard surface. Sits just fine on carpet.
Tight for power supplies - DO NOT ORDER A MODULAR ONE. A regular ATX PSU will fit, but may be TIGHT.

Other Thoughts: Keep in mind this is a LARGE case for an ITX build. If you are not throwing in multiple drives or just using onboard graphics, this may not be the 'portable' case you are looking for. Filled up, this definitely has some weight because it is a steel rolled case.

Plenty of room if you want a small home server - you can easily fit TONS of drives in here - even the side panel can fit 2 2.5" drives!

Pros: Fast IOPS
Fast speed
did I say it was fast?
Software is surprisingly REALLY good

Cons: Price is very high compared to other SSDs, but for a reason..
Triple level cell has a shorter lifespan than MLC, but at about 250TB of writing before it will wear out, its unlikely this would be much of a problem for most users. If it is, buy the 840 Pro.

Other Thoughts: For those looking at the 120GB vs the 250GB: get the 250GB. Double the onboard RAM, and the 4K random write is almost TWICE AS FAST on the 250GB vs the 120.

Seriously, this drive is stupid fast. Samsungs controller is one of the best out there, and if you're unwilling to fork over a bit more for the 840 Pro, the 840 EVO is one of the best drives you can buy today

G.SKILL Ripjaws X Series 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL10D-16GBXL

Pros: Runs perfectly as specified speeds, no issues

Cons: Overclocking potential is not as high as other models

Other Thoughts: G. Skill is always a safe bet on RAM when its on sale, or as a combo deal, which happens VERY frequently. Hard to not recommend, unless you require RAM that can handle high voltages or large changes to timings to squeeze performance out of.
