>>52328622 Depends on your needs, if you want decent cooling or a shit load of drives it's good. The main downside to some people is it's not as small as other MITX cases.
>>52328812 >Big as fuck but still claims to be ITX It's not a claim, it is. It's big for a reason, if you want a smaller case and don't need what the Prodigy offers then get a different case. >Cable management is a nightmare If you really care about looks that badly it's not hard to hide everything behind the graphics card and block off the PSU area. >no real reason for the bottom leg things It has a PSU that intakes air from the bottom of the case, the feet have a purpose. Also they match the aesthetic, and I know most of you babies care about that shit. >USBs favor right handed users If you wanted you could put the panel on the other side, although not an ideal solution due to blocking off ventilation to the graphics card. >no front USBs You could put some in the 5.25" bay if it was really that much of a hassle to reach round the side of the case. >can hold a max of 7 hard drives, but what ITX board his 7 Sata ports I think newer boards are coming with 6 ports. Even with 4 ports you can add another 2 with mini PCIE, or a full size PCIE card if you're not using a graphics card. Also it's about having options, not all the drive locations are the same size or usable depending on other components in the case. >That $80-90 price tag For the quality and the features it offers it's pretty damn cheap.
>>52329394 Largeish tower coolers my ass (same guy I misspoke). You can fit an NH-D15 in there and it's no bigger than the CM Elite 130, all while supporting 3x HDDs and 3x SSDs (okay the large cooler will block one of the HDDs).
>Big as fuck I went to Micro Center the other day and compared the Prodigy M side to side with some mITX cases. Prodigy M is smaller than that Carbide boombox, about the same size as Obsidian 250D and Node 304.
>>52328812 >>52334185 There is an mATX version, and if you want its also easily modifiable to fit ATX.
The ITX one is pretty shit, I used it for one of my old builds and due to the small size allocation for the PSU it was a pain to do cables with. I modified another case to be able to fit an ATX board, and its quite shockingly easy and at the same time you can fix most of those problems.
Though, that does not remove the design flaws you mention, and that it is indeed an expensive case, when the only way to make it a great case is through modding it.
>>52334185 Bruh, I don't even have it any more after selling it to a buddy, I have nothing to be remorseful about. The MATX version gives up a lot to fit the larger motherboard, the things the Prodigy is good at such as cooling or holding a shit load of drives.
Yes it's large for an MITX case, I won't deny that. However it seems I'm one of the few people that realises it's large for a reason. There are very few other MITX cases that could fit the stuff I had inside mine, and I still had room left to add more radiators and drives which even fewer cases could fit (I think Case Labs has a similar layout MITX case, but then that thing costs a shit load more).
