    Default BitFenix Prodigy M

    The desktop PC has evolved into a platform for enthusiasts and modders to cram as much gear into a case as they can. Sometimes it is just not practical for taking to a LAN or using as an HTPC due to the size and weight of a custom PC. There has been a concerted effort by some case manufacturers to reduce the footprint of the desktop without leaving the features of a larger chassis behind. We all have grown spoiled to the conveniences of cable routing, drive bays and countless cooling options. This is where the ingenuity and innovation of BitFenix comes into play. BitFenfix, the creator of the popular mini ITX Prodigy case is looking to fill a gap in the small form factor market. Many complained the original Prodigy did not support the larger micro ATX board and felt left out. The Prodigy M with full support for micro ATX and mini ITX boards is said to offer the same flexibility and style of the original Prodigy case with the same small footprint. Let's take a look into how BitFenix pulled this off.

    Nice review Sandy. I rather liked this layout for mITX as well actually, just wish BitFenix would STAHP with the reskinning of the same chassis across a bajillion different skins with little to nothing changed internally.

    Yeah i have avoided tiny cases for a long time. I have to say this one is small but still big enough that I could get everything I wanted in it. So I was happy.
