    Today, BitFenix is proud to launch its latest creation - Prodigy. The first mini-ITX chassis designed with enthusiasts in mind, Prodigy is set to turn the mini-ITX chassis market on its head. With support for long graphics cards, tower coolers, and even watercooling radiators, Prodigy offers unparalleled flexibility in a compact Mini-ITX form factor.

    "The wave of enthusiast class mini-ITX motherboards is upon us, and with Prodigy, users finally have a case to match," says BitFenix Product Manager David Jarlestedt. "No longer will users have to choose between compact size and blazing performance. With Prodigy, mini-ITX users can finally have it all."

    Prodigy - Small Case, Big Ideas
    Designed by BitFenix from the ground up, Prodigy embodies everything BitFenix - robust functionality, revolutionary new materials, and timeless design. The subtle curves and clean lines on the outside speak the same BitFenix design language that has catapulted BitFenix into the hearts of enthusiasts everywhere. The chassis is suspended by two handles on the top and bottom that are crafted with BitFenix FyberFlex Composite - a revolutionary new material that is very flexible yet offers incredible strength. These handles, coated in our SofTouch Surface Treatment, are not only a convenient way to carry Prodigy, but are also an extra level of shock protection during transport. Two SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports are provided on the outside for fast file transfers, while the brushed aluminum BitFenix logo on the front ties the entire design together. Available in Midnight Black or Arctic White, Prodigy is not just a PC case, but a work of art.

    Sliding off the side panel reveals the Prodigy's true talents. The modular BitFenix FlexCage houses up to five 3.5" HDDs or 2.5" SSDs, making Prodigy an ideal candidate for a home server, HTPC or NAS. Remove the middle portion of the FlexCage, and Prodigy can accommodate long graphics cards up to 320 mm in length, making it ideal for a pint-sized gaming powerhouse. Need even more power? Remove FlexCage and the ODD bay all together to make room for a thick 240 mm water cooling radiator. Prodigy accommodates standard ATX power supplies, and a specially designed side SSD mounting bracket that enables users to install up to five SSDs, even with the FlexCage completely removed! Featuring multiple installation options, Prodigy is the most flexible mini-ITX chassis on the market, bar none.

    Of course, no one wants to spend time wrestling with their system, which is why Prodigy comes with a bunch of DIY-friendly features. The uniquely positioned motherboard tray makes it possible to install tall CPU coolers, and filtered fan intakes keep the insides looking as good as the outside. Tool-free drive locking mechanisms make installation a breeze, while rolled-edge cable pass-throughs help protect your cables from damage.

    Pricing and Availability
    BitFenix Prodigy carries an MSRP of 69€ in the EU, $79 in North America, and will be available on store shelves in early June.

    Delta6326, NC37, TRWOV and 7 others say thanks.

    Apple is going to be all over this. I smell a lawsuit incomming as it looks great and will sell.

    Yeah, except it's not made from aluminium and the handles are actually flexible, not solid bits of metal... Sure, it looks a bit like an Apple design, but if they can sue for this... then we might as well just stop the world and go back to the dark ages.

    "Unleash"!

    Might argue that that word is a bit overkill and that I've played too much Diablo recently but screw you, the case is nice and the chains are broken.

    Layout looks very similar to the Cubitek Mini Tank.

    It didn't stop Apple from suing Samsung over that "rounded corners" b-s....

    Still, it's a nice looking case with a good layout.

    Apple is applying for a patent on an "stylus used with tablet or cellphone" - make your own conclusions.

    Frankly, I really dig the white case, despite it looking a bit Applish. My HTPC with it's C2D is due for a replacement later this or next year. A black version with a smooth front instead of a mesh and a nice, clear side window without perforations would be best.

    Way too big, may as well just buy an mATX tower and stick your ITX stuff in it. Side controls/inputs are a definite turn off.

    Ya know Ive seen a few BitFenix in person and I gotta say the offer a good product for the price IMO. Granted they are no Lian Li but they are a FAR better deal then some of the other cases I have seen.

    This is the first Mitx case that's impressed me.

    I'll have to consider this format now. :D
