The Bitfenix Prodigy Mini ITX is a great choice for a living room or bedroom environment. Even though the chassis is tiny, thanks to the clever design very few compromises have been made.
Crucially, the company have managed to accommodate full-sized ATX power supplies which makes component selection much simpler. It can also support large graphics cards for gaming duties.
On top of that this chassis has serious cooling potential with additional space for 5 x 3.25″ drives and up to 9 x 2.5″ drives. This will accommodate a huge audience of enthusiast user interested in building a capable system.
BitFenix have managed to accommodate positions for two 120mm fans alongside a single 140mm and 230mm fan. This is certainly an impressive achievement in a case this size, although it is a shame Bitfenix didn’t bundle a 230mm fan with the Prodigy.
The acoustical performance of this chassis is decent, however it could easily be improved by upgrading to 140mm fans, especially if you spend a little extra for BeQuiet! low noise models. As such, you could build a fairly quiet air-cooled system, perfect for everyday use or as a media center.
If you wanted to go opt for watercooling, then the Prodigy offers support.
This impressive chassis retails for just £59.99 at OCUK which is amazing value for money.
