Computex 2012 - Popular case maker BitFenix have unveiled their latest creation, Prodigy. Prodigy is a super-small mini-ITX case, but looks absolutely gorgeous. It will come in multiple colors, black/black or white/white and sports some decent cooling. It's made from a mix of steel and plastic, can take 1 x 5.25-inch drive, 5 x 3.5-inch (3+2 modular) or 9 x 2.5-inch drives.

Cooling on the front we find a single 120mm fan, or an optional 140/180/200/230mm fan, looking at the rear we find a single 120mm fan (included), or a 140mm fan which is again, optional. Up top we have the ability to throw in two 120mm fans (optional). What about the dimensions? It is definitely small at 250 x 404 x 359mm. I haven't touched one the stand-out feature, yet.

On the top of the Prodigy we find two handles, this is just so, so useful for lanners or for people who transport their PC around occasionally. We were giving the Prodigy a bit of a feel up when we bent the handles to see how they would take the weight of the case being fully-filled with hardware. The handles can be bent in on themselves, as they're made from some very high-end material.

The case itself features some BitFenix tech in the form of FyberFlex, SofTouch and FlexCage. Filling the case out we have USB 3.0 ports, too. The Prodigy is definitely on my list of 'must haves' and I look forward to building a mini-ITX system inside of it. We loved the Prodigy so much it won one of our 'Computex Recommend' stickers.

Now for a slew of pictures!
