 BitFenix Prodigy Review  


A few months back OC3D got its first look of the Prodigy in a hotel lobby, many people wonder why the hell some one would be so interested in a PC case but hey they just don't understand our obsession do they! Continuing on with this obsession the Prodigy arrived less than 90 minutes ago, the video has been shot and is currently rendering as I type this all so we can get the review up on NDA day. Thanks to the joys of couriers our sample is 3 days late, but meh we are OC3D tight dead lines are what we do best!

Anyways enough excuses for the shortness of the text today lets move on and take a look at the specifications.

Video Review


So here it comes a very brief conclusion. Its epic. /end.

Seriously though this is not only the best ITX case we have ever had the pleasure of reviewing but we would also say hands down the is the best BitFenix case to date, you really can see a lot of time and thought has gone into the design and construction of this case. As far as we are aware this is the first case BitFenix have designed from the ground up and boy does it show.

For an ITX case to have such great GPU, be able to fit ATX power supplies, CPU heat sink and water cooling support makes it a class leader. You would think that this would also come with a pretty heft price tag but oh no! Just £59.99 will buy you your own slice of ITX case perfection and to make things better there will be a white one available too! *nerdgasm*

Easily worthy of our OC3D gold award but just to show how gob smacked we are with that price we have decided to give it the OC3D Value for Money award too!


Thanks to BitFenix for the Prodigy we reviewed today, you can discuss your thoughts in the OC3D Forums.
