It will fit, but why not get a nice CLC like the corsair H90? :3

A big case to put a Mini ITX board, no? Yes; it'll fit. I wouldn't recommend a CLC though.

CLC? and i was orginal looking at getting the Bitfenix Prodigty case, but i was told it might not fix so to get the Case listed.

Closed loop cooler.

Corsair Hydro Series.

Most enthusiasts dismiss CLC's as rubbish coolers, but coolers that offer thick radiators, and thick tubing do a good job.

CLCs like the Corsair H90 H100i H110 and such are decent.

CLC = Closed-Loop Cooler. The Corsair H-series are CLC.

The BitFenix Prodigy is a great case. It can fit a large Phanteks PH-TC14PE heatsink. It's a fantastic case for you. There are only a few cons about the BitFenix Prodigy case that I personally don't like:

1. you'll want a PSU that's no more than 6.5" in depth;
2. it has no feet stands so you can slide it across the floor.

Here is an updated version http://pcpartpicker.com/p/Yf96 of my part list do you think it could fit in my case?

Yes. The BitFenix Prodigy has two 240mm mounts. So you can mount the radiator on top or in front. :)

I double checked, the H100 does infact fit into the prodigy.
Note that the H100i has thicker tubing and quiet'er fans, could be a better buy.

You can mount a 140mm fan on rear or front. You can also fit 2x 140mm (or a 280mm radiator) in front.

You can't fit a 280mm in the back of a BitFenix case.

You can't do that either. You can fit a 240mm radiator on top or a 240mm radiator in front. With a little modding, you can also fit a 280mm in front.
