Meticulously crafted and beautifully engineered, Prodigy redefines the
Mini-ITX chassis. The compact housing is suspended by handles made with
BitFenix FyberFlex™ Composite for easy portability and maximum shock
absorption. On the inside, our modular FlexCage™ gives you the
flexibility to install up to five 3.5" hard disks or 2.5" SSDs, or
remove it entirely to fit up to 240mm watercooling radiators and long
graphics cards. For added flexibility, additional SSD locations are also
included, and a choice of Midnight Black or Arctic White with
interchangeable front facades mean Prodigy will suit your individual
style. With tool-free convenience, two USB 3.0 ports, filtered intakes,
and proprietary BitFenix SofTouch™ Surface Treatment, Prodigy is the
compact case with no compromises.
With its subtle curves and clean lines, Prodigy is distinctly BitFenix.
The compact mini-ITX body is suspended by two elegantly crafted handles
that give Prodigy a solid yet modern look that makes it a perfect
addition to any environment.
Despite its small stature, Prodigy is engineered for maximum
flexibility. Remove the top HDD cage to fit long graphics cards up to
320mm in length. Bolt a 240mm water cooling radiator in the top, or if
the build demands it, remove the entire HDD cage and put the 240mm
radiator in the front, while still being able to install up to five 2.5"
drives. With multiple installation options, Prodigy is a small case that
truly does it all.
FyberFlex™ Composite Technology
Both the top and bottom handles of Prodigy are made from BitFenix
FyberFlex™ Composite - a revolutionary material that is not only
flexible, but incredibly strong. Fastened on both the top and bottom of
the chassis, these handles are a convenient way to carry Prodigy, while
providing added shock absorption during transport.
Maximum Storage Potential
With the ability to install up to five 3.5" HDDs or nine 2.5" SSDs,
Prodigy provides loads of storage options. Set it up as a high octane
portable gaming rig, an attractive home server, or a full on NAS. With
Prodigy, the possibilities are nearly limitless.
Choose Your Own Style
Your computing environment is your own space, which is why everything in
it should be uniquely you. Prodigy comes in both Midnight Black and
Arctic White, making it a perfect fit just about anywhere.
Ready for DIY
To get you up and running in the shortest possible time, Prodigy is
loaded with DIY-friendly features. The unique motherboard tray makes it
easy to fit tall CPU coolers, and filtered fan intakes keep the interior
and system looking superb. Finally, the Prodigy's tool-free drive
locking mechanisms make installing HDDs an incredibly simple affair,
while cable management features keep your internals neat and tidy.
High-Speed USB 3.0 Connectivity
Got large files you need to transfer? No problem. Equipped with two
SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports, Prodigy allows you to transfer files ten times
faster than with USB 2.0.
As a BitFenix chassis, Prodigy comes with all the extra touches fans
have come to expect from BitFenix. Our FyberFlex handles are coated with
none other than BitFenix SofTouch™ surface treatment, while the
luxuriously coated interior and rolled-edge cable pass-throughs exude a

This is my first Mini-ITX case and I'm loving it. Despite its size, you're still able to build yourself one heck of a gaming rig. The only thing I don't like about this case is how hard it was for me to fit my Corsair AX650 power supply. It's in there now, but it took quite a bit of effort to get it mounted. Be sure to check the Prodigy's PSU bay dimensions beforehand. Otherwise, I'm very happy with this case. It fits my EVGA GTX 670, Corsair H80i liquid cooler and my two hard drives without any issues.
I have a Shuttle mITX system and bought this second foray into mITX because I wanted a case that would last longer than the motherboard, and the Shuttle case is so tailored to its motherboards, I'm not certain an alternate mITX board will fit in it when the time comes. I'm not entirely happy with this new case, however.
This is a very nice looking case with many options for cooling. The internal cable management is decent but the space is limited for the Power Supply Unit and any modular Power Supply Unit would be a tight fit. Aside from that, the case may be slightly wobbly if not sitting on a hard surface.
Bought to built a ITX machine as my stowm scout was too heavy and hard to travel in LAN party. Removable mesh on top makes it easy to screw motherboard to the case, nice placement of PSU and there is hole on the floor to screw your SSD there and still have place for 2 HDD in case you remove the HDD tray (when you put a decent GPU)
This is one good looking case with many options for cooling. The internal cable management is decent but the space is limited for the PSU and any modular PSU would be a tight fit. Aside from that, the case may be slightly wobbly if not sitting on a hard surface.

This is a slick mini ITX case with a lot of rig options. It was a challenge to manage the cables and ensure all of the haddrives could be hooked up properly. Overall, I'm very impressed with the case aside from the few cons.
