    iDuplex - Prodigy on the Rampage

    @ Robert: I was considering using the AX1200, seeing as I've had it lying in my closet for more than a year already... But, I probably will end up using a Seasonic 860 Platinum - let's see...so more monies, eish... Have a look in my very first post, it mentions the watercooling components...

    iDuplex - Prodigy on the Rampage

    From the back, it looks like this - please note screws will be shortened , this is just test fitting :) a shot from above, showing around 1mm clearance between the motherboard tray and PSU - I have not modified the side of the case to fit the PSU, it has 1mm clearance on the fan-side...

    Thanx for comments, and looking, as always, appreciative! Just a few progress pics, this is coming together nicely, amazing how much one can achieve in a couple of hours here and there :) For some reason, I quite luv these two shots..... and anyway, been having a go at...

    iDuplex - Prodigy on the Rampage

    From the dxf above to this......came pretty nice, 3mm thick, should be the final version.... A Few pics of the plate being fitted.... Here you can see how the whole shebang was moved a couple cm's towards the PSU side, to make way for the GFX watercooling...not so much in the...

    iDuplex - Prodigy on the Rampage

    A Small update: Jeesh, I luv the postie, just dropped of my last bit of hardware, the second Aquaero WB for the 680, as well as the pretty decent SLI bridge to join the 2 blocks. Also, the backplate in the earlier photos was only a prototype, alowing me to finetune a few settings, before...

    iDuplex - Prodigy on the Rampage

    Here is a shot from the bottom, with the rail being secured by 3x 3mm screws- both the bottom and vertical motherboard retention rails have been drilled and tapped for 3mm screws, makes life easy should you want to do future work/mods. I hate poprivets with a passion! and, a...

    iDuplex - Prodigy on the Rampage

    We cannot have the motherboard tray dangle loose inside the case, so I fabbed a few brackets for it, which provide a very sturdy anchor - Adamski over at Overclock.net might want to do something similar. upon closer inspection, I need to trim the vertical one down, even though it would...

    iDuplex - Prodigy on the Rampage

    Of course, for what I am planning, nothing on the inside will remain, it will be totally custom - so out with it! All handled by my trusty old Makita 18V cordless... Usually with my build logs, I would do a step-by-step of the process, from measurements to final product, but...

    iDuplex - Prodigy on the Rampage

    The Prodigy being a mini-ITX case, could have complicated matters, but, due to the rather volumous capacity of it, being similar in volume to many micro-ATX cases, I thought it might be pretty simple to convert it for MATX use. edit: For the Boyz over at Bitfenix - this ain't red, it's a mix...

    iDuplex - Prodigy on the Rampage

    As some of you may remember, a while ago I started a project worklog, named iProdigy. This was going to serve as a small, yet powerful gaming/everyday monster for my iWife :) Well, the system is doing really well, I gave it a few weeks burn-in on the online racing simulator, iRacing, where...

    Thanx Mate. Appreciate your feedback, but really after a full alu version of this case :)

    BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX Case

    No worries, thought it might be something to that effect. But, I see you skillfully avoided the question about the aluminium version :rofl: On a serious note though, any chance for an alu version in future? Would be the ultimate LAN/Mod box. What about a limited run of 50 only, with a...

    BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX Case

    Ahemm...now if you can take the suggestions I have made in the OCAU forum, where I have my project log, you can make it even better - it's not bad at all as a starting-base, but you have the opportunity to elevate it to the next level. Now tell me, when can we order a full aluminium version...

    BitFenix Prodigy Mini-ITX Case

    There's no such thing as MiniATX. It should be Micro-ATX. [/pedantic mode off]

    temp variation

    Nothing, why should something be wrong? Not trolling, but really, why do people always think all the cores should read exactly the same under load, as well as idle? I mean ffs, would you go and do 60 remounts just for the sake of a few deg C? IRL, there will be zero extra headroom due to...
