Hi fellow builders!
Currently, I am still in the research phase of my build. I have already managed to gather some components. However, I am still a bit worried about my case. Its the last thing I need to decide on really. After reading reviews and watching builds about the Bitfenix Prodigy M the biggest thing that worried me is the airflow. Initially, I really like the look and design of the case. I want to include 3.5" HDDs with expansion possibilities. Due to budget problems I will start with two HDDs. The idea of the build is that it will function as NAS and media server with perhaps gaming possibilities in the future. With the current case the HDDs would sit on the bottom. Preferable I would like to intake cool air from the bottom and exhaust from the top. That seems logical to me and most efficient. Looks are also important - I have to look at it constantly. I am thinking of changing to the Fractal Design Node 804. Only problem is the size - its quite big I feel. The reason I initially fell in love with the Bitfenix case was that it was small and looked badass!
I need advice or tips or perhaps suggestions!
Here is a link to my build as I currently see it.
