It’s been two years since I first reviewed the BitFenix Prodigy M, but today, I’ll be revisiting this now classic Prodigy chassis design to take a look at the latest Colour series from BitFenix. Colour choices are always a welcome addition to any range and from a consumer perspective, having more choice is no bad thing. Colour coordinating your build becomes a lot easier when you can pick something that suits your needs and preferences. Today I’ve got the Prodigy M Red, as well as a few other bonus goodies from BitFenix to help with the build, such as the BitFenix Fury PSU, a 120mm Spectra Pro red LED fan, a BitFenix Alchemy white LED strip, as well as a red side panel window.
Prodigy M Colours available
- Midnight Black
- Arctic White
- Fire Red
- Atomic Orange
- Vivid Green
- Cobalt Blue
As you can see, this is the original Prodigy shape and design, the only real difference is the colour, which is obviously red.
The SofTouch treated front panel and the handle/stands on the top and bottom blend nicely with the soft finish of the red paintwork.
The black trim fits rather well, especially since most gaming hardware is in red and black these days; this should be one of the more popular colour choices.
The back of the chassis is still finished in black, which suggests the core of the chassis is the same across the whole colour range, with just the exterior panels being swapped; makes sense really.
The top ventilation cover.
Behind which you’ll find the dual 120mm fan mounts.
The bottom of the chassis comes with a heat guard, although this can be removed if you wish to install fans in the base of the chassis.
If you don’t want extra fans here, you can opt for mounting hard drives directly to the base of the chassis.
