I’ve had a Mini-ITX system now for over a year. I built it sometime ago, and I built it with a BitFenix Prodigy case, however this case hasn’t aged the best.
The case is a nice, don’t get me wrong, I just feel as though it was knocked during transport and it made it very difficult to open. As time has gone on, it’s still very difficult to remove the side panels.
It occurred to me recently, I should probably upgrade a few items in this Mini-ITX system so I can once again get back into some PC gaming. A bigger Corsair Power Supply is on the list of items, since the Corsair Power Supply I have won’t drive a PCI-E video card. But it will be kept and used in a future build, as eventually I will upgrade to newer CPU and motherboard, which will be recycled back to a build that includes the Power Supply I kept from upgrade.
However, I am seriously considering the purchase of a new case, and since optical drives are not used much these days, I think the BitFenix Phenom might be the choice.
I’ll post back my thoughts on the case, if and when I purchase.
