As mentioned there are some separately purchasable accessories that can come along with the Prodigy M color. Starting off with the front of the boxes for the case and the window side panel, there isn’t a whole lot going on with either though the side panel box does feature an image of the panel and of it in use.
On to the back of the boxes there is a bit more going on, the side panel reveals its specifications while the box for the case has a few different images with some of the highlighted features BitFenix thought would interest us.
On the side of the Prodigy M box is where consumers will be able to find its specification list so they can go ahead and make sure it is the right size and compatible with everything else they have in mind for their build.
Aside from the window panel, you can also buy separate front panels in various colours to help personalize your Prodigy M if you like, the boxes for these are very simple and while it may be hard to see in the photo below, the white sticker does actually contain the information on what colour combination will be inside the box.
The front of the case features a nice flat panel with vents around the side to help let air into the case, the top has 1 x 5.25″ bay for your optical drive or card reader needs and towards the bottom is an easily removable BitFenix emblem. I feel Bitfenix left it to be easily removed because if you purchase a front panel it may not come with one.
As you may have noticed there is no IO on the front panel and that is because it is just around one of the sides. The IO panel includes power and reset buttons, 2 x USB 3.0 ports and the standard audio jacks (mic/headphone). The 2nd side panel is plain and colour matched with the rest of the case.
The top of the case features a removable vent to allow access to install a pair of fans or a thin radiator while on the back of the case we can see the 4 x PCI expansion bays, pre-installed 120mm exhaust fan, cutout for the motherboard and the input end of a mains extension lead as the power supply is actually mounted in the front of the Prodigy M Color.
