Description

Built this mainly for gaming, and a bit of school work. I haven't had the time (school and work full time) to go through and run any tests or do any overclocking. So far I've mainly been playing LoL and Skyrim (ton of mods :D) and I'm waiting till I can upgrade my keyboard before I really try out any shooters.

Love the case. Tested.com did a build video using this case and actually jumped started me onto building my own computer. The only problem I had was that the screws that hold the radiator to the case cause the filter to bulge in the middle, but it's the kind of thing only I notice, my friends couldn't tell until I pointed it out. Also the included fans with the H100i are somewhat louder than I had hoped so Ill also be upgrading them soon as well.

P.s. I also have a WD Caviar Black 1Tb that a friend gave to me a few years ago. P.p.s. Still did to finish off my cable management P.p.p.s. My current monitor doesn't have a dvi port, so I've been using an hdmi cable

Very nice! +1

Absolutely loving the red and black theme. I love seeing Prodigy case builds!

 
 
Bones96 [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

Looks nice. I love that mouse. If you find it too heavy, plug it in and take out the battery. If you haven't already. I didn't mind the weight but I think I prefer it without the battery.

 
 
Trpcameron [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 6 months ago

The weight of the mouse is fine for me, though I do have large hands. I just wish it would stay charged a bit longer :/

LOL That is one mean pussycato! EL Gato indeed!

Not sure how you are able to power that MSI GTX 770 when the requirement PSU is 600

 
 
Gooberdad [2 Builds] 1 point 5 months ago

I see how. He is using a PSU that has 45a on a single 12v rail, and its a Gold certified 550. Even though the card states it need a minimum of a 600 watt PSU, is only needs 42amps on the rail. That card draws watts and his system is an estimated total of 400watts..Holy crap on second thought that seems like it is cutting it pretty close, if you are actually gonna overclock.

Yeah, after checking the estimated numbers, I agree with Toast. You may want to upgrade to a more powerful PSU soon. I wonder if being close to the edge of your system draw will shorten the life of your components much.

Wow this looks incredible.

the ending was very intriguing.

great build and +1 for build and catties!

i love bioshock

Hey my cat looks exactly like yours

Are $80 mice really worth it?

 
 
Trpcameron [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 6 months ago

I think this one really is! Part of the reason I got it was because it came with a free LoL champion and a skin. Luckily for me though is that they accidentally sent me two codes, so basically i got the mouse for around 50 when you factor in the price of 2 champions and skins :)

 
 
Starlana [2 Builds] 1 point 6 months ago

Sweet. Warehouse Error in your Favor! Collect $15.

 
 
Starlana [2 Builds] 1 point 6 months ago

+1 just for the name, Rosie. I love it!! <3 Starlana

Nice

 
 
PCModder 1 point 5 months ago

I would recommend the Antec true quiet pro. Super silent fans and reasonably priced

 
 
soy_milk 1 point 5 months ago

Did you have to remove the sound module form the mobo to fit the h100i?

 
 
Trpcameron [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 5 months ago

I had to remove it to install the h100i but once I had it mounted and the cables connected I was able to put the sound card back just fine.

Cute Cat :)

What I hate about the design of the gpu is the Msi logo in the middle but despite that the design is amazing, Props to your build +1

 
 
FlusherBox 1 point 2 months ago

Really nice, I love the Prodigy its such a sexy case!

 
 
2moons33 -3 points 6 months ago

Nice but you could have got a higher wattage power supply. I do not think with only 550 watts to work with, that you will be able to overclock everything to its maximum potential. All in all, I would give this a 8.5-9.0 of 10. Good job!

 
 
DjArtifact 5 points 6 months ago

Nope, a 550w will be more than enough for this.

 
 
2moons33 -3 points 6 months ago

It might be enough but with the power supply running at its highest possible wattage while in a game like BF4 with 99% usage while overclocked, the PSU might burnout before one or two years because of the strain. I usually pick PSU's that have at least 100 watts spare after overclocking to be safer. I guess it is just my personal preference, sorry.

 
 
Spencer1012 [2 Builds] 6 points 6 months ago

I personally think that he is just fine. I think that GPU will draw about 225 watts and the CPU about, say, 100 if he overclocks a bit. Haswell is pretty good for power use.

Even being super conservative in leaving 75 watts for the board, fans, etc, He is just fine with 150 watts left over as a rough guess of mine.

Also, that PSU is made by Silverstone, one of the best manufacturers around. This is one of the few PSUs I would trust to put under 90% load continuously if I had to.

However, extreme GPU/CPU overclocking adds up fast. A 30% bump on the GPU speed and an increase in voltage could increase it by a fair amount. Same with the CPU. For general use, he should be OK.

 
 
Gooberdad [2 Builds] 2 points 5 months ago

I believe in mild overkill. So as spencer says if you plan on overclocking......."Scotty, I need more power!" "I'm given her all she's got, captain."

I really wonder what EVGA was thinking when they put a 500watt PSU in their Hadron case. According to their standards it wont power a GTX 680. I have seen video of people using that case with that GPU.

Love the build, dude. I want to build a mini one day.

 
 
Spencer1012 [2 Builds] 2 points 5 months ago

I don't know what they were thinking, although it's pretty good compared to other case + PSU options that are typically make by Raidmax/Logysis and have exactly an 82% chance of catching the house on fire.

 
 
Gooberdad [2 Builds] 1 point 5 months ago

I can see it too. Good times that made me laugh. Thanks, man.
