BitFenix’s press release describes the case in a bit more detail.

The compact mini-ITX chassis that makes no compromises

(BitFenix Design Lab, May 25, 2012) – 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 320mm 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 240mm 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.

For more information, check out the Prodigy’s product page. They have more photos on the site as well.

So…what do you have to do to win one of these nice looking cases? Well, to begin you have to have a Facebook account, then a few steps and you’re done.

  1. Well, I have all of the components for the build, at least to put it together there are future mods like watercooling I want to do, I'm just waiting for the case to arrive. I'm hoping it comes this week.

    I'm thinking of trying to do something fancy with it. also thinking about looking into some sort of sponsorship for a project, as I'm not super rich, you know.

    But I'll post something up no matter what.


    Word! :p

    Looking forward to it...:thup:

    Very nice little case, Bitfenix have been looking quite a bit on the Mac Pro case tho....but hey i can't blame them coz that case looks awesome :thup:
    The layout inside is interesting, I like it.

    The last thing I need is another case, but I do like contests.

    Facebook isn't a security risk if you don't give facebook real info :sn:
    For a change, I would like to have the white Prodigy Case. It looks amazing. The slickness with a touch of class is just awesome. Great design from the inside out! I'd definitely go white.

    The way BitFenix designed it is just perfect. Maintaining all necessary feature with extraordinary size. Building a new HTPC will never be so exciting with a Prodigy. Thanks for this awesome chance! :attn:

    Sure do get tired of these contests that discriminate against non-Facebook users. With all of the repeated and proven security issues with Facebook, I choose not to participate.

    Many states is the US forbid only one method of contest entry -- has to be a plan B for those who do not use Facebook.

    What are you going to do when Facebook collapses to the next evolution of social media? You are steadily pissing off you reader base by excluding them from the Facebook-only contests; and yes, we are STILL a significant percentage of your readers (at least we used to be).


    I am also pissed why I have to enter the contest at all, they should just send one to me without any effort from my side, God forbid some kind of rules.

    /sarcasm off

    I have just one (fake) acc without any info in it just for contests like this and comunication with some stores. Used maybe 10-15 times in 3 years.

    It's free giveaway ffs.

    Adapt or don't enter. It's a not a rocket science, not a super-ultra-mega secret operation against your privacy. Just a free giveaway.
