Bitfenix Prodigy M micro-ATX case

prodigym_featured

When we tested the Bitfenix Prodigy back in October 2012 we were very impressed. It turned out to be a great case for a mini-ITX motherboard. With the Prodigy M Bitfenix has taken the same shell and changed the internals so we now get to fit a M-ATX-motherboard in the same case. Does Bitfenix have another winner on their hands? Read on to find out.

So what are the features that Bitfenix want to promote for the case?

Tremendous Flexibility
You can use up to four 3.5″ or fives 2.5″ drives in the case.

Multiple Cooling Options
You can add up to five fans including a 240mm radiator in the case making sure it is cooled properly.

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
