The Prodigy M 2022 & Prodigy M 2022 ARGB at a Glance

The Prodigy M 2022 sports almost identical looks to the previous models, with the carrying handle design, an almost cube-like shape, and an overall clean design. Finished in black and white, you’ll still find the I/O and USBs on the front side, a mesh front panel with chrome BitFenix logo, and the mesh top panel.

Old Dog, New Tricks…

BitFenix FyberFlex™ Composite Handles (and Feet)

The new BitFenix FyberFlex™ Composite handles and feet of the new Prodigy M are in keeping with the original design, but offer a more strengthened design – with a durable 1mm thick metal to help keep the overall chassis rigid and free from deforming. They also have a new matte coating for an even long durability, and to make the whites brighter and blacks deeper for a more premium look.

Side Panels

The old windowed side panel has been swapped to a 4mm thick full tempered glass window, allowing you to display more of your components and offer a more premium finish, and come with a small colour-matched printed lip around the edge of the window.

On the other side of the case, you’ll find the front I/O, which includes a single USB3.2 Gen 2 Type-C, two USB 3.0, separate audio in & out, reset & power.Tempered glass on the side, acrylic on top, and solid side panel with front IO

Hardwadre & Cooling

BitFenix have kept the mini-ITX and micro-ATX motherboard compatibility. The motherboard tray is a traditional vertical mount and has a large cut-out for backplate mounting. Behind the motherboard tray is mounting points for the hard drive bracket, which can support up two 3.5” drives or three 2.5” drives – with two more locations in the bottom of the case should you need them.

Graphics cards clearance allows for up to 339mm in length, so the latest graphics cards can be installed. BitFenix have two installation points – either horizontally at the top of the case, or vertically at the bottom of the case. To vertically mount your graphics card, simply switch out the rear grill to the vertical GPU bracket – note, the vertical GPU bracket only supports 2-slot GPUs.

If you’re running your GPU in horizontal mode, you can choose to swap out your top panel. There is a mesh panel, for more airflow, or an acrylic panel to display your hard earned graphics card.

Finally got a GPU? Why not show it off!img 614d90b1c5380As for cooling, you can install CPU tower coolers up to 190mm in height.

Radiator support is a single 120mm radiator in the rear and a 240mm or 280mm radiator in the top.
