BitFenix Announces New Prodigy M Micro-ATX Case
This version of BitFenix's Prodigy is micro-ATX compatible.
Bitfenix has released a brand new version of its Prodigy case. This one is called the Prodigy M and Bitfenix is calling it the most compact case in the micro-ATX segment. The company says the Prodigy M is a result of high consumer demand for a micro-ATX version of its hugely successful micro-ITX compatible Prodigy chassis.
"The BitFenix Labs have been inundated with emails requesting a retooled version that accepts micro-ATX motherboards. Today, BitFenix is proud to officially release the Prodigy M - a case inspired by BitFenix fans around the world," the company said in a statement released on Wednesday.
BitFenix is highlighting the original Prodigy as the best solution for storage fiends and water cooling enthusiasts, and marketing the Prodigy M towards those that want to dual graphics systems or more than one expansion slot, though the latter is compatible with both micro-ATX and and mini-ITX.
The Prodigy M sportsfive PCI slots and supports CPU coolers up to 160mm in height as well as slim water cooling radiators up to 240mm in length and up to five 120mm fans. It's also got a removable storage rack that fits two 3.5-inch HDDS or three 2.5-inch SSDs, and space for an additional two 3.5-inch drives, as well as the included SSD rack on the side panel for two 2.5-inch SSDs.
It's got easy carry handles on the top and bottom and is available in black or white. It'll be available in October, but no word on pricing just yet. We imagine it'll be close to the pricing for the original Prodigy, which currently sells for between $80 and $100.
