Bitfenix Prodigy M – mATX Case Shown at Computex

During Computex 2013 Bitfenix showed off their Biftenix Prodigy M, or as I like to call it, the Bitfenix Prodigy mATX.  It just sounds more correct.  Either way, this case looks and feels much like the Bitfenix Prodigy, however there are a few perks to this new version that might get you Prodigy lovers a little excited.

Bitfenix Prodigy M mATX Case Overview

Overall, I feel the Prodigy M is a large success.  They’ve expanded your options from mini ITX to mATX, while also retaining 240mm radiator support, and even giving you some extra room for cable routing behind the motherboard.  According to the specifications at Computex 2013, the Prodigy M supports “long graphics cards”.  I’m not overly sure what their definition of “long” is, but i’d assume it could handle something 11″ inches long, like the GTX 690 since the dimensions of the Prodigy have remained unchanged.

There are some “bigger” changes.  For instance the PSU has been moved to the front, something we’ve seen quite a lot of lately.  They’ve also added 2 more PCI slots on the Prodigy M, bringing you a total of 4 slots on this one.  Other than that though, there really isn’t much more that’s changed.

Overall, I think this is a good example of making a good thing better.  The case has virtually remained unchanged, with the exception of a few improvements.

  1. That case looks amazing, it almost makes me regret buying a Cooler Master HAF series. Cable management is a b*tch in that mofo.
