Description

I want a some what portable gaming rig. I saw the Bitfenix Case i was sold. The case was really easy to work with even though it is a mini ITX. The one problem is i had to remove the DVD player because of the water cooler. I went with the GTX 670 instead of the HD 7870 because of the heat in such a small case and also the EVGA card pushes the Heat out the back of the card instead of putting it back into the case. I also plan on making a custom cut panel.

Nice choices on your build. Decent Overclock as well.

I am really starting to warm up to the BitFenix Prodigy. I may use that in my next build.

What are you planning on the custom panel? Just doing a window or something more elaborate?

I plan to cut the BitFenix Logo or another Logo into the Front panel then use moders mesh for better airflow though the case. I Have a 230mm led Fan behind the front panel. When i improve the air flow i plan on OC the processor to 4.5 and OC the Graphics Card.

Sounds like it will look great. Share some pics when you get the mod done.

Great build! When you said

" I went with the GTX 670 instead of the HD 7870"~

Your choice was between a GTX 670 and a HD 7870?? or did you mean 7970?

Would there be room to put the H80i in the farther back spot on the top of the case or will it be in the way of the other fan?

I've been seeing a lot of mini-itx builds lately. Nice part choices though. Only thing I would change is the SSD since I heard the 840 series isn't that great. By the way, what's that program you were running with a corsair case picture on it?

I should haven't gotten the DVD Drive and just goten the pro considering that i cant even use the Drive because the CPU cooler need the room. You learn from the mistakes. Should have gotten the case first and measured it. oh well it runs good and i am happy.

I only had it like that when I was installing the os because I had to have the DVD out side the case. Trust me I cleaned it up.
