BitFenix Prodigy Arctic White Mini-ITX Chassis Review

Inside the BitFenix Prodigy




On the inside of the right door panel you will find the plastic rack that will hold an additional two 2.5" drives. The wiring is attached to the door panel and contains power, power LED, reset and HDD activity F-panel leads, a native USB 3.0 connection with a built in USB 2.0 tail and an HD Audio connector.




Our first look inside the Prodigy shows that this chassis is very well appointed with the FlexCage and optical drive bays on the right. You can tell right away that you are going to need a smaller PSU to sit under the motherboard tray on the left.




The single 5.25" bay will of course hold any optical drive or bay device you want to put in here, but it is also removable with six screws keeping it in place currently.




The FlexCage is a two part system that has three drive bays in an easily removable sled in the middle. Under it are two more drive bays that take a little more work to get out, but are also removable. The plastic trays allow for both 3.5" and 2.5" drive installations.




To remove the top three drives you just press on a clip at the top and the three drive cage slides right out of the way leaving the two drive bays in a cage that is screwed down.




Remember those six screws on the underside of the chassis? If you remove them, you can also pull the bottom two drives and the frame out of the chassis for even more space for things like water cooling.
