ProdigyProdigy


Meticulously crafted and beautifully engineered, Prodigy redefines the Mini-ITX chassis. The compact housing is suspended by handles made with BitFenix FyberFlex™ Composite for easy portability and maximum shock absorption. On the inside, our modular FlexCage™ gives you the flexibility to install up to five 3.5" hard disks or 2.5" SSDs, or remove it entirely to fit up to 240mm watercooling radiators and long graphics cards. For added flexibility, additional SSD locations are also included, and a choice of Midnight Black or Arctic White with interchangeable front facades mean Prodigy will suit your individual style. With tool-free convenience, two USB 3.0 ports, filtered intakes, and proprietary BitFenix SofTouch™ Surface Treatment, Prodigy is the compact case with no compromises.

Highlights
Beautifully Compact

Beautifully Compact

With its subtle curves and clean lines, Prodigy is distinctly BitFenix. The compact mini-ITX body is suspended by two elegantly crafted handles that give Prodigy a solid yet modern look that makes it a perfect addition to any environment.

Unmatched Flexibility

Unmatched Flexibility

Despite its small stature, Prodigy is engineered for maximum flexibility. Remove the top HDD cage to fit long graphics cards up to 320mm in length. Bolt a 240mm water cooling radiator in the top, or if the build demands it, remove the entire HDD cage and put the 240mm radiator in the front, while still being able to install up to five 2.5" drives. With multiple installation options, Prodigy is a small case that truly does it all.

FyberFlex™ Composite Technology

FyberFlex™ Composite Technology

Both the top and bottom handles of Prodigy are made from BitFenix FyberFlex™ Composite - a revolutionary material that is not only flexible, but incredibly strong. Fastened on both the top and bottom of the chassis, these handles are a convenient way to carry Prodigy, while providing added shock absorption during transport.

Maximum Storage Potential

Maximum Storage Potential

With the ability to install up to five 3.5" HDDs or nine 2.5" SSDs, Prodigy provides loads of storage options. Set it up as a high octane portable gaming rig, an attractive home server, or a full on NAS. With Prodigy, the possibilities are nearly limitless.

Good case, but not quite great.... 1/8/2020 6:07:18 PM

Pros: After working with this case for an extended period of time, I feel that what it does right is done rather well.

- Because of the orientation of the motherboard (horizontal instead of vertical), the graphics card is allowed to breathe through a perforated side panel.
- The option for water-cooling is there, as well as support for large air-cooled CPU heatsinks.
- The aesthetic design of the case is rather appealing, but (although not really a con) it is wider than I expected.
- There are drive bays on the side panel used to cover cable management. It fits 3.5" drives very well and leaves plenty of space for either full 5.25" drives in the cage, or space for airflow.
- The white and black coloring looks good and any fingerprints/scuffs on the plastic or painted metal are very easily removed.
- Very solid price for a Mini-ITX case.

Cons: Now for the issues I've had with it.

- My biggest gripe with this case is the quality of the plastic used in the handles/legs. It is visibly bending in the legs when sitting on my desk and when lifted up, the handles also bend slightly.
- There is only one air filter for the entire system located underneath the PSU. I would have preferred to see one other on the top where the AIO radiators would have been placed, had I used one.
- The stock case fans are subpar. For some reason, the manufacturers included a blue LED case fan for a case that does not have a side panel window. It's rather obnoxious if you don't have extra case fans and are stuck with a loud fan with garish coloring.
- My final con for this case is the setup for adding and removing an optical drive. The plastic cover is supposed to remain in place only by the rest of the front panel. This means once you have installed an optical drive and later decide to remove it, the cover wobbles in its place.

Overall Review: Would I recommend this to someone building a Mini-ITX system? Perhaps if they like the look of it and are on a tighter budget. On the other hand, however the case as a whole seems like a Micro-ATX case that turned the motherboard tray onto it's back and called it a day. It just feels like some of the space wasn't well optimized and the materials could have been better.

On the budget side of Mini-ITX, I would say it is a solid case with nice aesthetics and plenty of room for fans and a radiator. This is where the case shines in it's ability to house components with good airflow, simple design, and lower-than-average-for-an-ITX-case price. If you, like I was when purchasing it, are in need of a lower cost case for your Mini-ITX system in the hopes of eventually upgrading, this is a very good place to start. The only thing is I urge you to purchase some be Quiet case fans to replace the ones that are included with this product.

I would only rate this a three star if the price hadn't made it so affordable. Price considering, however, I must give this the forth star.

Decent product with a 5.25" Drive Bay 12/17/2018 2:38:51 PM

Pros: The 5.25" Drive Bay offers ODD or Fan/LED controller options if you need.
3 + 2 modular Internal 3.5" Drive Bays offers flexibility in your system build.
Top Internal 3.5" Drive Bays modular can be adjusted to face left or right side panels, which can avoid disk drive cables interfering the GPU.
Have rooms to fit a tower fan on CPU.

Cons: Two 2-pin loop connectors for powering fan LED are missing from both the initial purchase and the exchange/replacement. I contacted BitFenix for help in both cases, in which they replied each of my messages every 2 days.

At first, they misunderstood my claim and suggested me to return the product rather than mailing me the two missing connectors

After I got the exchange product 2 weeks from the time I received the first, I contacted them again for missing connectors and claimed all I needed were the two 2-pin loop connectors. They apologized for the misunderstanding they had with my previous claim, and sincerely agreed to mail me what I needed from their engineering office in Taiwan.

GREAT case, but could use a couple changes (see other) 11/24/2018 7:24:46 AM

Pros: + It looks splendid without being gaudy
+ A 5.25 ODD SLOT ON AN ITX CASE!
+ It's very, very, roomy inside.
+ Everything more or less fits well, fits my Vega FE and Ryzen 5 2600 well.
+ Plenty of options for fans
+ Good airflow for included fans and can include even MORE fans
+ HUGE drive cage with TONS of space for disks
+Drive cage can be flipped in the other direction to allow it to fit even with a GPU with all the disks. This is contrary to some reviews for this case: you CAN flip the cage very easily, only eight screws to do it.
+ Soft touch finishes on the plastics do not track fingerprints and are very luxurious to the touch.
+ GREAT layout for GPU allows for air to be taken from outside the case for blower style cards allowing for much better airflow and heat dissipation, it makes about a 5 degree Celsius difference for me VEGA FE with my custom fan settings.
+ QC seemed fine on the one I got.
+ Layout with flat motherboard means that your GPU won't sag!

Cons: -/+ Being this large, it's odd that it doesn't have two extra PCI slots at this rate, though it would add an extra inch or so. The Prodigy M is completely different on the inside, and not in a good way.
- Power supply is a PITA to do if you have one that is near the max length, I BARELY fit mine in the case. I have a Rosewill Photon 650 Gold fully modular PSU.
- Choice of material for bottom handles/stand is questionable at best, it bends a bit when filled, no rubber feet included. Honestly, it should have been aluminum or steel bottom handles, but, it's not a big deal.

Overall Review: This is an EXCELLENT case for either a compact NAS/server, gaming computer, or a compact workstation given all the disk drive slots, and it's very stately in its appearance with no windows, a huge plus to me. You should probably install all modular cables before inserting your PSU because it's a bit tight, or use a short PSU. The handles are removable apparently, but I haven't given it a try.

Great case, awful fans. 12/10/2017 1:48:53 PM

Pros: Everything about this case is great.

Cons: My case came with two BitFenix fans that don't work whatever I try ... So I had to buy two more fans ...

Unusual shape for a Mini-ITX, but holds lots of hard drives and is easy to work on 7/3/2017 12:40:21 AM

Pros: It has more drive bays than most Mini-ITX cases. Drives are very easy to add and remove with the screw-less design. Very configurable design.
Has a front and rear fan with great airflow to keep my 4 hard drives cool.
Both Side panels and the top vent come off easily with no tools.
The metal used seems to be thicker and more precisely manufactured than many cases I have used over the years. The paint job is flawless.
The top handles are very convenient.

Cons: They fans are somewhat loud when running at 100%, but I'm sure they could be very quiet with a proper fan speed control.
The bottom "handles" flex slightly. They look cool, but it would be nice if they were more rigid, but not a big deal.
The right side panel has a bunch of cables that you have to be mindful of when putting the panel back on. It would be nice if there was better cable management.

Overall Review: It is wider that you would expect when you first take it out of the box, and is an usual design with the Mini-ITX motherboard being mounted horizontally. But, it is a great case for when you want to add a video card or multiple hard drives to a Mini-ITX. I use it as a mini file server, and it definitely keeps the hard drives cool. I keep it on the floor under a counter top, so it is nice to be able to grab the top handles to pull it out so I can open it up for maintenance.

Solid Case 1/9/2017 5:38:08 PM

Pros: Looks cool and has nice handle things.
Fairly easy to put all my stuff in and has nice module ability.

Cons: Could use some better venting up front.
I'd remove half an egg for it if I could, but a full one? Nah. It's not that bad, decent case.

Three Years of Great Service 11/11/2016 3:29:11 PM

Pros: - modular interior, easy to add and remove parts to allow for different fan configurations and components
- storing laptop form drives in the side panel is a great space saver
- full size power supply space
- soft plastic handles are great for absorbing motion

I really enjoying building out the rig and plan to reuse it for future itx builds.

Cons: Cable management is a little lacking but this may be more a lack of experience on my part than the case's

Overall Review: If you are in the neighborhood for a solid and easy to manage case that doesn't restrict airflow, look no further.
