BitFenix Prodigy Case Released in Green and Blue

By - Source: TechPowerUp | B 24 comments

BitFenix is rolling out its Prodigy enclosure in two new colors.

BitFenix has launched its Prodigy enclosure in two new colors, Prodigy Green and Prodigy Blue. Both of the units come standard with a window side panel. Up until now, the Prodigy existed in four other colors: white, black, red and orange. The new colors are described by BitFenix as Vivid Green and Cobalt Blue.

Beyond the new colors, the enclosure will be identical to the previous models. They will have room for a mini-ITX motherboard, graphics cards up to 320 mm in length and room for up to five hard drives. Remove the hard drive cage, and the internal hardware can even be water cooled.

The new enclosures will hit shops around the end of May, and although there was no official word on pricing, we can expect it to be the same or slightly above that of the previous models.

    An extremely popular enclosure. I wanted to do a mod with one, but then there have been about 30 or so mods I have seen mostly involving putting as much hardware as possible in a tiny case.

    Neat cases, I wanna do a build with one of these one day.
    They look like those mac cases too oddly.

    I personally think they should've gone with Azure or Dodger blue.

    I want to do a build in one of these cases but waiting for a something like the Asetek 760GC Combo Liquid Cooler with a 240 double thick radiator. This way I can cool my CPU and GPU in one shot in this a small form factor.

    Ahh cramming parts into ITX rigs. Honestly quite a bit of fun.

    BitFenix Prodigy is a pretty large Mini-Itx case compared to Silverstone SST-SG08.

    I have seen the white one of these in person and love the look of them. I was also really surprised at the build quality for the price.

    That is still large compared to the SG05 :)

    The most important thing is whether the new cases fixed the weak handles on these. I wanted to do a Prodigy build but I've read a lot of reports that the handles will break and are held on with weak plastic.

    Great little case, I have one. Only thing I have against it is the weight of it. Lian Li make cases sooo much lighter. Yes, I know, Lian Li do all aluminum, but it wouldn't hurt for some parts of the prodigy to be aluminum as well would it?

    wait.. the article says micro-atx!! wooooohooo. This case now actually support Micro Atx motherboards? off to order a few dozen of these now.. this is great news. Been waiting for them to support Micro ATX forever. Glad its finally done.

    crap.. Bitfenix website still says these cases WILL NOT support Micro-ATX motherboards.. Now there is no way Tomshardware would make such a huge mistake reporting that it would , so maybe Bitfenix just doesn't want to officially say it fits in case some boards are too long? can anyone confirm that Micro-ATX mobos do fit?

    No chance to get an mATX in the case. mDTX(2 slots) tops.

    Typo's or mistakes happen.

    thx. too bad. I understand mistakes happen but didn't think one that big would be possible, since this person did his own rewrite of the article from techpowerup. He even says Micro-ITX ( which doesn't even exist) so this reviewer probably is more of a "blogger" and less of an actual technical reviewer, which is totally fine I just was surprised to see that here.
    Anyways, lets hope Bitfenix comes out with a Micro ATX version of this case... it would do extremely well in the market.

    If you want to see a rather small and interesting mATX case, check out the FT03 by SilverStone, but remember it has NO screws holding the panels on so care must be taken when moving it. It has some other minor issues such as hotter hard drive temps due to the behind board location, but I think it is a rather solid case as long as you do not plan to bring it to lan parties.

    My current layout if you are interested in seeing how things fit in this case.
