BitFenix Prodigy M Micro-ATX Chassis

From an aesthetic point of view, nothing about the Prodigy M should shock you; it is essentially the same design as its predecessor, since both cases share dimensions as well. The handles define the shape at the top and bottom, and the Bezel sort of floats in the middle with its black trim, logo, and the single bay cover at the top.

The top of the chassis has a mesh panel that unclips and is completely removable. Under this there is room for two 120mm fans to be installed via holes on both side rails.

The left side of the chassis is the Plain Jane side of this design. Of course, the curve of the handles and the top and bottom do detract from the basic square design inside, but access to the inside of the chassis is on the other side.

With a glance at the back of the Prodigy M, we can immediately see the motherboard is inverted inside. With five expansion slots at the top to fill, and the rear I/O panel needing to go in, we see a plug this time, rather than access for PSU installation.

The right side of the chassis is the side of the Prodigy M you will likely see most, as this is the side used to gain access to the inside of the chassis. While the side panel is mostly identical to the other side, this time we do have an I/O panel near the front edge of the chassis.

In this I/O panel we find the large power button just above the rectangular reset button. Next is a pair of LEDs on the left, with a pair of HD audio jacks next to them. That leaves the pair of USB 3.0 ports at the bottom as the last of the front panel connectivity.

We find that a magnetic plastic panel has been placed under the chassis. The PSU mounting location is exposed to the right, but if you do not care to cool the chassis from the bottom, it can be entirely blocked off with this.

Removing the cover, we see that the bottom of the chassis offers a lot of mesh for air flow. We can also see options for fans and storage incorporated into this design.
