This build is mainly for gaming and some CAD. It took me about a month and a half to get all of the parts that i needed. Waited for deal as you can see for some of the parts such as my G.Skill RAM which was on sale on NewEgg as a shell shocker deal. The Green Caviar drive as also on sale so I just had to pick it up. Even though the RPM varies from 5400-7200 depending on the task at hand it runs overall pretty damn well. In the near future i will be trying to add a 230 mm fan in the front and a solid state drive. I will probably wait until cyber Monday to find a deal on SSD. In the meantime i am just enjoying my new rig. Any thoughts or suggestions are all welcome. Thanks

Everything looks great, get that SSD as soon as you can, those green drives are not meant to be main boot drives.

J_Mowatt, did you have any trouble fitting the Seasonic m12ii 520w in the psu cage of the prodigy? I'm looking to build my first mini itx pc and will be using the bitfenix prodigy. I'm leaning toward this psu, and yours is the only prodigy build that seems to have used this psu. Thanks!

Its not bad. It is a little tight. I would recommend a fully modular one so your computer can look cleaner but it isn't bad if you find a sale on it. I haven't had any problems so far with it.

once again i see someone with that cpu.. idk why i just have a grudge against it... i like your build though and cant figure out why noone else has commented. im deeply impressed at your patience to wait for the good deals, perhaps id have gone for a different processor maybe FX-6300 or a little more for the FX-8350 but each to there own and im probably wrong. you get a +1

You can't do a Mini ITX build with an FX-6300 or 8350.
