    Hiya all!

    I'd like to ask you, if you like Big Bro' Prodigy, to vote for me at Minimalistic PC's modding contest! http://www.minimalisticpc.com/contests/vote/
    Last day to vote is today and I'm sorry I haven't asked you before But if you like this mod, please support me and vote! Thanks

    Ah, too bad. I have heard that rubbing with ketchup does the work, lol. Sounds strange but I guess there's some kind of acid that works well.

    True about that. I'm glad I went on their website and read about the pastels before I ordered some since it's always good to know, hehe.

    Thanks a bunch for your comment. And I totally agree with that quote, it's my PC and I'm the one that's going to look at it at my desk. However since I'm doing this public build-log it's always fun to please my fellow readers that enjoy to follow my work and build log.
    When you get your Prodigy, do something unique and fun with it, I'd love to follow that project log, in case you make any! ;)

    Thanks a bunch again,
    best regards
    nikkop.

    Ketchup? Makes sense, tomatoes are naturally acidic.

    Voted!, too bad you didn't win.

    UPDATE 12/03 2014 - Final Pictures of Big Bro' Prodigy!
    Hiya everyone!

    Here I am with the last update that I and many have been waiting for! It shoudldn't have taken this long to get it out as I've had the

    pictures for a while but... Anyways, I've now decided to get it done and I hope you like it!

    As the title says it's time for the final pictures of this project! The project has taken me about 11 months to complete, from start to

    finish (even tho this project is slightly longer). I enjoy taking my time to ensure I do the right decisions at the same time as I like to spend

    quite some time my project logs to make them satisfying - I hope it has been appriciated :)

    You who have followed this project and this build log knows that I usually document quite well with text and pictures. However, since this is

    the last update and with the final pictures I'll let them all speak for themselves! :) However if you have questions regarding the picutres

    please do ask.


    Before I present the completed project I would like to thank my sponsors for making this coming true. I would also like to thank every

    person
    , and you as members on this forum as you've helped me push myself and keep on working even tho it has been hard from time to

    time. Without my sponsors or you people this project would never have been completed, or even started. Thank you a thousand times! :)

    And then this project as completed! I'm amazingly releived that is has ended at the same time as it feels quite sad. It has been a very fun time

    and a great journey that has teached me tons of stuff. It has been lots of fun to modify something ths much and use all this awesome

    hardware
    that I've received. I'm however very happy that I managed to get the project completed the way I planned and wanted it - both the

    looks and the functions - to squeeze in an E-ATX motherboard with lot's of water cooling in a Bitfenix Prodigy - a mITX case.



    I will from now on take a break from modding and projects as it takes up a lot of my spare time and I feel, and have realised, that I need to

    spend on other things. I find it more fun to work on project when I'm able to do it with all of my heart. Also I want every project of mine to be unique and right now I have no ideas for any new project.

    Once again, thank you all for reading, following, commenting, criticizing, inspiring and all that. I appreciate it a lot! :)

    Best Regards
    A happy nikkop.​

    Had a little doubt at the beginning you were going to pull this off, been away from the project forums for a while and now come back o see this! Amazing build and proof the prodigy is way too big for it's own good.

    Thanks a lot mate! I found it pretty hard to cover every little spot in the case as it's so narrow! But I'm glad you liked it :) Thanks for your support.

    Thanks a bunch soxism, I'm glad you've enjoyed this log :) Haha yeah it was pretty hard but in the end I managed :)

    Thanks a lot Spreadie, I appreciate it. I'm happy over the results myself and that I finally managed to pull it off.

    Thanks for your kind comment. Indeed the Prodigy is a little too big to be considered a "mITX" case, but at the same time it can hold pretty large components. Heck, it can hold an EATX, GTX 780 and 2x 240 rads a long with a 15cm reservoir! ;) Haha.

    Thank you all for your kind comments once again! :)

    Mesh

    Good job and all the hard work. :thumb: Was wondering if you could let me know where you got the aluminum mesh from. I'm making my own build and thats the only parts I need. Like how it looks. Thanks in advance.

    First of all, amazing job nikkop! simply beautiful!

    1) Can anyone here tell me if i can have the exact same build as nikkop but with 2 more gpu's (with front radiator aswell)?
    So, 3-way sli with 780ti's or 980 ti reference cards.
    I have seen some builds with 3-way sli prodigy's BUT i am asking specifically here because nikkop has a radiator and fan's at the front of the system which is taking up some space so that's why i was wondering if i can add 2 more gpu's to this exact build?
    Is it possible?

    2) Also, is it possible to have this water-cooling loop with the 3-way sli, but not go outside the case? Maybe if i turned the radiator upside down and made the tubing run in front of the gpu's (so towards the window)? Is there enough room between the window case and the gpu's to run a couple tubes in front of the gpu's?

    3) Is there any room to add a fan controller in the drive bay (since it's much more compact vs a disk drive)? How much room is there between the motherboard and the drive bay?

    Thanks!
