    Nope, the recommended maximum for a Prodigy is 150mm in length, though you can fit 160mm+ depending on the cabling system.

    Also, that's a pretty terrible PSU, and far more wattage than you can ever use in an ITX build. Without your system specs it's hard to know what you do need, but something like an XFX Core 550 or an Antec HCG-620M (if you want a semi modular) would fit and be sufficient for nearly any iTX build.

    what makes it bad? I already have one on hand, is it worth it to change.
    btw i have a gtx 770, and an i7 3770k
  4. also i decide im probably going to get a corsair 250d instead
  5. 250D has a lot more length for PSUs, so there shouldn't be any issues fitting it in there.

    Coolmax aren't the most reputable name (in fact, they aren't really a name at all) so its hard to know what you actually have. If you already have it, then it's up to you if you use it, but it makes little sense as a purchase due to probable poor quality and excessive wattage for the application. There's little-no data available for it, and that's never a good sign.
