BitFenix Prodigy M Review

Stripped

Here we have it boys and girls, the verging on legendary BitFenix Prodigy chassis.  The front panel pops off easy enough, but to get the top and bottom off requires a screwdriver and bit of know how.  The majority of the external chassis is the same as the original Prodigy, and indeed the Phenom Mini-IX case we recently reviewed.  It's all steel and pretty darned well put together.

The front and rear of the chassis are much the same as other iterations of the Prodigy, even sharing the panel location holes with the Phenom

The only thing separating this from the Phenom M chassis is the row of holes along the roof that locate the roof panel on the latter.

It's a shame that all they did was take the itx version and copy what the modders have been doing.

The case is a bit cramped for M-ATX, with the itx version you have plenty of room for decent water cooling and good airflow. You were also not restricted on the length of the GPU either.

I think Bitfenix could of put more effort in and made the case slightly bigger for the M-ATX version. Either that or just stick to the itx design but make the case wider so you can fit a M-ATX board in the way you fitted the itx one in the original Prodigy.

It's not a bad case and does the job, but I can't help thinking it could have been much better.Quote

Exactly. There's too much compromise for my liking.

Surprised it got a Gold Award if I'm honest, but it was still a good read Quote

This just makes me want to work on a M-ATX machine for myself even more now. The others are right though, there does seem to be too much of a compromise, I'd rather go for the Bitfenix phenom .Quote

Just a question btw, I've noticed that the Phenom (mITX) has the exact same inside, including the 5.25" bay... Except the front panel is completely clean?

Think I'm going for an mITX Phenom in white. Maybe slap a white Prodigy windowed panel on there, cause there's no windowed Phenom available...Quote
