Compatibility Notes

  • Note:The BitFenix Prodigy (Black) Mini ITX Tower Case supports video cards up to 317mm long, but video cards over 177mm may block drive bays. Since the GALAX GeForce GTX 1080 8 GB EX OC Video Card is 296mm long, some drive bays may not be usable. The BitFenix Prodigy (Black) Mini ITX Tower Case hard drive bays are positioned where some of the bays may be physically blocked when using longer video cards.
  • Note:Some physical dimension restrictions cannot (yet) be automatically checked, such as cpu cooler / RAM clearance with modules using tall heat spreaders.
