Known for its clean yet modern designs, premier PC hardware designer BitFenix unleashes the all-new version of its critically and commercially acclaimed Prodigy chassis - the Prodigy M. As newest member of the Prodigy family, Prodigy M represents the most compact and highly compatible case in the micro-ATX segment, setting new standards in terms of mobility, compatibility, and design.

Featuring never-before-seen flexibility and styling in the mini-ITX segment, the original Prodigy has garnered over 100 media awards and accolades. Since then, the BitFenix Labs have been inundated with emails requesting a retooled version that accepts micro-ATX motherboards. Today, BitFenix is proud to officially release the Prodigy M - a case inspired by BitFenix fans around the world.





Headlining the Prodigy M is full compatibility with micro-ATX motherboards. For the first time, users will be able to build micro-ATX systems inside the same svelte dimensions of the original Prodigy, and enjoy all of the added expandability of the micro-ATX form factor.

With two variations of Prodigy now available, users can now choose the one that's right for their own builds. For storage mavens and water cooling enthusiasts, the original Prodigy is ideal for those types of users. For gamers looking for dual graphics systems with SLI or Crossfire, or for those users that need more than one expansion slot, the new Prodigy M is perfect fit for them. Either way, BitFenix fans can enjoy the signature styling and tremendous flexibility of the Prodigy.

The sophisticated design of the Prodigy line has always been an expression of modern elegance. Solid construction and flexibility are among the key strengths of this model.

The new Prodigy M not only offers plentiful expansion options, but also enables a new dimension of small form factor system builds. Its hallmark dual BitFenix FyberFlex Composite handles on the top and bottom subtly create a concave visual effect for an extremely modern yet powerful look. These handles are also strong yet incredibly flexible to absorb minor shocks during transport. The BitFenix SofTouch Surface Treatment adds further emphasis to the Prodigy M's luxurious character. Integrated I/O positioned on the side panel come with dual USB 3.0 ports for easy access, and front and top removable mesh dust filters can be quickly removed for easy maintenance.

Moving to the interior of the Proidgy M is where the true innovation begins. Completely retooled to accommodate both Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX motherboards, Prodigy M can handle some serious hardware including dual long graphics cards (SLI or CrossFire) with its five PCI slots. Tower CPU coolers up to 160 mm in height can be installed, as can slim water cooling radiators up to 240 mm in length. And to keep things cool on the inside, up to five 120 mm fans can be installed in the case for superb thermal performance.

Prodigy M offers an extremely flexible storage system. The removable storage rack can be outfitted with up to two 3.5" HDDs or three 2.5" SSDs. Add to that space on the bottom of the case for an additional two 3.5" drives, and the included SSD rack on the side panel for two 2.5" SSD, and you have a case with a ton of storage options. When using the bottom of the case for HDDs, Prodigy M even comes with a magnetic heat shield with a fine micro-textured surface that prevents warm air from the PSU from re-entering the case.

With the rising demands of compact PCs nowadays for flexibility, compatibility, and style, Prodigy M is the perfect case for this category. Offering an astonishing amount of capacity to fit the latest hardware, the new Prodigy M is a legend reborn.

BitFenix Prodigy M will be available on store shelves in late September.

Wait a sec -- if the power supply exhausts its hot air out the bottom of the case, and there's an intake fan on the bottom next to the p.s., that's only going to suck the hot air back inside.

It has the same dimensions, the interior is the only part that differs.

Well a lot of small form factor builders choose high-efficiency, more-than-is-needed power supplies to begin with for improved thermals. And anyways, especially with smaller cases, air circulation has more impact than air temperature.

I'd have made it a lil bigger, it was good for mini ITX but now it's gonna be completely crammed as a microATX case.


Still, nice case.

+1. A :rolleyes::rolleyes: "serious" :rolleyes::rolleyes: Prodigy build is already verging on stuffing 10lbs of shit into a 5lb bag. This takes the appeal away, for me, but for someone who doesn't plan to watercool (not talkin' about AIOs) it would be Ok.

I'd take something else for a mATX case TBH

I think we are not going to see many watercooled microATX Prodigy builds imho.

You had the space to do it when it was miniITX but now it's just basically impossible unless you plan to cool everything with a slim as hell rad.

think external or don't water cool, really not a issue... if you need MATX and water then you don't want this case :toast:
