A while back in the BitFenix Inner Circle I remember seeing renderings of this chassis design. At that time there wasn't too much being said as to the final plans, but in essence there was a more square looking Apple G5 case that was the craze to mod not too awfully long ago. Without any mention at that time to motherboard compatibility, it was really tough to grasp the reality of size from drawings of the exterior of a case. At the beginning, there weren't even images of the back, so I wasn't sure if I was looking at something large enough to house four way video card setups and ATX motherboards or if this was going to be something I could sit on my desk.
It just so happens that the latter scenario is what is the reality with the latest in innovative chassis design from BitFenix. With a much bigger push for powerful, yet tiny Mini-ITX based systems, BitFenix saw a way in with their perfect rendition of a LAN box. As always BitFenix is close to their user base and whole heartedly appreciates comments and feedback they get from their designs. The chassis we are about to be looking it, while very compact in nature, it a terrific culmination of what users asked for, what the design could fit and even now and then BitFenix throws in a curve ball or two just to keep you on your toes as you look at all the possibilities that can happen in its first Mini-ITX only chassis.
If somehow you missed the title and had no idea what you were reading about, I am of course talking about the highly anticipated by me and highly raved about chassis, the Prodigy. As the first group of these went out to the few sites they could accommodate with the limited number of cases and those were the black on black versions. While I didn't make it in the first round, the wait was worth it as I received the white on white version with black only for the trim.
There is a lot to cover for such a small entrant to the market and I have a sneaky suspicion that after you are done looking at the white BitFenix Prodigy, your next move after reading this will be shopping for a new Mini-ITX motherboard for your CPU.
