BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX Chassis Review

We first removed the power supply cover by unscrewing 4 thumbscrews.

We could then slide the Akasa Venom Power 750w power supply in and then fasten in place.

While the Akasa Venom is not exceptionally large, we were a bit restricted on space, and as the cables (modular) emerge from the back of the power supply this is a bit fiddly to push in place. Another inch of space would have made the installation of the power supply easier.

On the right-hand side of the case we found that you can install 2x 2.5″ drives, so we went ahead and installed an SSD Boot Drive and a secondary mechanical drive. This is certainly making the best of the space, but fitting SATA data and power cables is a bit fiddly and best saved till last.

We then installed the motherboard, which is fixed in place with only 4 screws. As you can see there is a lot of space which would allow us to fit a CPU cooler if our motherboard supported it. There is also an impressive amount of space for a Graphics card.

We then installed a 3.5″ HDD, which uses the same 3.5″ trays as the BitFenix Shinobi, so the HDD just clips in place and then slides in.

We then cabled everything into the board, which is a bit fiddly as it is hard to route cables underneath the motherboard. However, given time, and the right cable selection this could be a very tidy system.
