Reimagined with micro ATX compatibility, Prodigy M enables users to install multiple expansion cards while maintaining the same compact dimensions and sleek look of the original Prodigy. Suspended with two FyberFlex Composite handles for shock absorption, Prodigy M can be easily transported to the next room or to the next LAN party. Prodigy M now also comes in several vibrant colors to match virtually any décor. The inside is incredibly flexible, offering space for SLI or Crossfire dual graphics technology, up to four 3.5" hard drives or five 2.5" SSDs, and even space for slim 240mm radiators. A magnetic heat shield is also included should you decide to fill the bottom with hard drives rather than fans. With BitFenix SofTouch Surface Treatment, a massive CPU cooler cutout, and rolled-edge cable pass-throughs, the small case that does it all returns with a vengeance.

Bitfenix

Full MATX Compatibility

You asked, we delivered. Prodigy M now features full compatibility with micro-ATX motherboards, all while maintaining the same compact dimensions as the original award-winning Prodigy. Featuring an all-new layout, Prodigy M is truly flexibility reimagined.

Bitfenix

Sleek and Compact

One thing that hasn't changed is the sleek and clean look of the original Prodigy. Sporting two exquisitely crafted handles that suspend the body, Prodigy M has the same modern yet elegant styling that made the original the small form factor case of choice for PC enthusiasts the world over.

Bitfenix

New Vibrant Color Options

By popular demand, Prodigy M is now also available in a variety of vibrant color options, including Fire Red, Atomic Orange, Vivid Green, and Cobalt Blue.

Bitfenix

Tremendous Flexibility

Of course, Prodigy M couldn't carry the Prodigy name without the flexibility to match. Aside from both micro ATX and mini-ITX compatibility, Prodigy M can be configured with up to four 3.5" HDDs or five 2.5" SSDs for excellent storage potential. Adding in a micro ATX motherboard gives you up to four expansion slots, perfect for additional expansion cards, or even SLI and Crossfire dual graphics capability.

Bitfenix

Multiple Cooling Options

To keep things running frosty, Prodigy M can be outfitted with up to five fans for maximum cooling. Bolt a thin 240mm radiator on top, or perhaps a 120mm radiator on the rear. With the roomy interior, even tower CPU coolers up to 160mm will fit with ease. No matter how you prefer to cool your system, Prodigy M has you covered.

Bitfenix

FyberFlex™ Composite Technology

Like the original, both the top and bottom handles of Prodigy M 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.

Bitfenix

Easy to Build In

To reduce the amount of fiddling with hardware to a minimum, Prodigy M comes with user-friendly installation features such as a massive CPU cooler cutout to make swapping coolers a snap. Not using fans on the bottom? Use the included magnetic heat shield to prevent warm air from re-entering the case. Finally, anti-vibration pads help further reduce errant noise from working hard drives.

Bitfenix

BitFenix Quality

Rife with special touches, Prodigy M is a BitFenix chassis through and through. Coated with SofTouch™ Surface Treatment, Prodigy M's FyberFlex handles feel soft and smooth to the touch. A luxuriously coated interior, a brushed aluminum BitFenix logo, and rolled-edge cable pass-throughs ensure a quality experience you've come to expect from BitFenix.

Horrible customer support from bitfenix beware!

Pros: case still functional and still works with my needs so far. nice layout and would be perfect if it were not for some of the quality control issues with other parts of the case itself. and new egg support amazing. if your willing to voice and issue early, good luck if you try to live with the flaw and fall out of their return policy and having to deal with manufacturer.

Cons: bitfenix support what to expect , / 2-3 week response for each of your own replys via customer support.
I made mention to them it seems you are prolonging this support ticket to go past my year warranty.
low and behold almost 3 months later they say "you are our of the warranty time frame sorry" ..........
I even called it out but they were very blatant in their unwillingness to replace a 19$ item which is the from mesh screen which plastic tab is very weak.

Overall Review: i would not recommend this product to anyone who is hoping for any type of customer service.
for a buy and forget it ill deal with my luck on how long it holds up then its a decent buy at a sale price other wise there are much better cases with better quality and far superior customer service by far.

cheap plastic

Pros: the Handles/Feet broke after couple months, cheap plastic...

Cons: the Handles/Feet is easy to break and bend, mine broke in couple months, and newegg don't have Handles/Feet for sale, there is a website that selling Handles/Feet but somehow it won't let me purchase, there is no delivery option to choose and it kept asking to choose delivery method, and i did email them to ask but they did not reply, bad bad customer services...

Overall Review: stay away from this case, it looks nice in couple months then start fall in apart...

sturdy case

Pros: I love this case. This was my first build and I wanted a more compact desktop. The case feels really well built and is easy to route cables and connect them. I would recommend this case to anyone who is trying to build a mini-ITX build.

Cons: None.

Happy customer

Pros: I am from the larger the case the better school and this was my first build in this format.

The build this case was used for was designed the wrong way. It was a gift and the user wanted a blue case. My painting skills are limited to buying a can of spray paint and the reviews on all the other blue cases left me cold. The rest of the system components were selected to fit in this mini-ITX case.

Some reviewers did not like the handles and reported issues with them. Mine were fine. These handles also keep the case up high enough to insure good air flow to the PSU. Even with cats and a dog there are no stability issues.

Building in this case was a breeze; solid construction and easy to remove parts. Just about everything that could be removed for this build was at one point or another. The case was easy to work with and not one skinned knuckle; my hands are big. The biggest problem I had building in this case was the cat walking through it when I was working.

The included fans were probably adequate for use in an air-conditioned pet free environment. They are sitting unused. Cooling (see other notes) was upgraded to a positive pressure configuration with an all in one liquid CPU cooler. The CPU cooler is configured push / pull and is seated in the top of the case.

To facilitate cooling the custom front panel was used. It is of the same high quality as the case.

Here is my bottom line

My system is about five years old. It has been upgraded and I plan on using it until the CPU dies of old age. Depending on what CPU and mother board options are available then, the BitFenix Prodigy case is a viable contender. This case is that good.

It is well designed and well constructed without sacrificing being able to work inside it. If they ever build a full size tower as good as this case I’ll buy it.

Cons: With the H80i in the top the Bly-ray burner is to big to properly fit in the case. The space between the back of the bracket and the H80i fan is insufficient for the cables. The bracket had to be modded to properly fit the burner so the cables were not in contact with the fan.

But in fairness I could have gone with a single 120mm fan in the top and vented the CPU cooler out the back. That would have left room for the 5 ¼” bay without modding. I just didn’t like bending the hoses that much.

Not really cons more a building note and a disappointment.

PSU:
• Based on reviews I went with a short PSU. Other builders report being able to force a full size ATX PSU in there. I just do not like forcing parts.
• Modular cables are a good idea. It gets tight in there very quickly and if you are air cooling your air flow will be impeded.
• Also (see other thoughts) the shorter PSU cable kit is very useful.

Considering how well constructed this case is, the removable top cover didn’t leave enough space for proper re-seating with the water cooler in place. It fits back on but is just barely not flat and I hate feeling like I am forcing parts.

Overall Review: Based on reviews, recall this is my first mini ITX build, this case is supposed to be on the large size for this format. That may be a consideration if you are building a mini ITX based system.

This build was a gift for a user whose primary usage is to surf and email. With that in mind some of the parts are clearly overkill. The system is being used in an area without air-conditioning and where the ambient temperatures commonly are in the 90s during the summer. It is also dusty and there is pet hair so positive pressure air flow and dust filters* were a must; it will be me maintaining the system.

Build Parts:
• Case – BitFenix (blue) Prodigy with the BitFenix (black) custom front panel and Silverstone FF132B dust filter*.
• Mother board: Asus Z87I – Deluxe
• CPU: i5 4670 3.4 GHz – system will not be over clocked
• RAM: 8 GB of G.SKILL Ripjaws DDR 3 1600 sticks
• Graphics card: None
o Even with everything else in this case it still has room for a graphics card – just pay attention to its length.
o I used the CPU’s native graphics and that was a pleasant surprise.
• Storage:
o Samsung 840 Evo 120 GB
o WD VelociRaptor 1 TB
• PSU: Silverstone ST55F – G 550 Watt (because it would fit without forcing.)
o Next major system cleaning I’m upgrading to the shorter power cable kit.
• Optical Drive: Pioneer Blu-ray Burner DBR-209DBK
• Cooling:
o Corsair H80i
o BitFenix Spectre Pro 230mm case fan – front case fan replacement
o Noctua NF-A14 140mm case fan – rear case fan replacement
o 2 X Noctua NF-F12 PWN 120mm case fans – H80i replacement fans

Cooling and dust control were a very large consideration when selecting parts for the build. With an ambient temperature of 101 degrees F the component temps were only a few degrees above ambient.

Great Case but BEWARE

Pros: Case is built solid. The cobalt blue is very eye catching. Tool less side screws to take off side panels are really nice.

Cons: Beware when you buy this case! The GPU card sits very close to the window and the window has no ventilation. I played one round of Titanfall with this window in and my GPU shot up to 90 C even with 3 fans running! I was forced to remove the window and create my own vent to cool the case better. Also, the front panel does not have vents either. The solid front panel chokes off the pre installed Bitfenix fan and does not allow any airflow through the front of the case. Do yourself a favor and avoid the windowed case. Buy one of the vented side and mesh front Prodigys instead.

BitFenix

Pros: Light, good looking, easily portable.

Cons: I wish the carrying handles were stiffer. It seems to give a lot, feels like it might break but it hasn't.

A Large Blue Box

Pros: - Blue color: The shade of blue is difficult to describe but the most attractive color I have ever seen on a computer box.
- Beautiful: The flat finish on all the surfaces makes the blue color even more attractive.
- many, many drive bays
- Great ventilation

Cons: - Size, This thing is 27 liters, not counting the handles. I find it a little too large to put on the desktop where I normally like to put my computer. That is a shame because it is so beautiful.
- Handles: The funky handles on the top and the bottom of the case do not add much utility. I would prefer the same box without them. As handles on the top they work OK but as feet on the bottom they just make the box wobble when you touch it to plug in a USB stick, etc.

Overall Review: Bitfenix, please expand your line of brightly colored boxed to include smaller cases, say 16 liters. Delete the funny handles, at least on the bottom.
