12 Mini-ITX chassis review: compact quality

A fully-fledged PC in a small chassis is perfectly possible.

Bitfenix Prodigy

The Bitfenix Prodigy is by far the largest chassis in this test with a volume of 36 litres. Visually the four FyberFlex grips stand out, a composite material of plastic and fibers. The grips are flexible, but very sturdy. They also function as shock absorbers. The Prodigy has two USB 3.0 ports and audio jacks.

There is lots of internal space, and you can fit a large dual-slot graphics card, a standard size optical drive and a large CPU cooler. You can put five 3.5-inch disk and 10 2.5-inch drives, almost making it into a portable file server. If you want to carry 7 kg, that is.

The Prodigy cools really well, measuring 36.1 degrees at 12 volts, while the noise levels are reasonable at 41.8 dB(A). Its size puts the Prodigy in between categories, as there are micro-ATX chassis in similar size. The £65 price tag still makes this an interesting product.

We reviewed the Prodigy separately as well, you can find that review here. If you like this chassis, have a look at our guide on how to install water cooling in this chassis.
