Project MonoBits

Hello everyone!

Now it's time for me to finally start another project!
I got the idea when I saw a preview image that BitFenix ​​had posted on their Facebook page and I was instantly in love with the case, I thought to my self that I really wanted that case and hopefully do a buildlog from it. I immediately started talking to people on various forums and websites, but also some who posted reviews on Youtube and asked about different dimensions so I could start sketching how I would like to have the build. My goals are extraordinary and should strive to do the best Prodigybuild made so far. I will go with a full setup of watercooling into this project, i will try to make it as highend as i can make it, everything that can be watercooled in this build will be. I will build and mod everything to perfection and having fun throughout the whole project. It will normally include a lot of sleeving and lots of other things and I will keep the project relatively short so it will hopefully be updated at least once or twice a week. That was it for the little speech, and here comes the additional information on the project, I hope you think this is interesting and I wish you pleasant reading!

Very thorough model.

However, Martin's Liquid Lab pretty much made one thing clear: Rad stacking is detrimental to the performance of both rads. Allow for some room between them and it's less of an issue.

I like where the project's going though.

That rad space looks very thin to me to be handling a 2500k and a gtx 580?

It should be sufficient if some more space is made for the 120mm rad there. o.o
However, if it's ideal? Eeeeeh, probably not so much.

I'd say you should put the 240mm up top and get an phobya 80mm thick 120 in the front

...Where's the second 240?
I didnt think you could fit a 240 in the roof and in the front of a prodigy?

Agreed 2x240mm and 1x120mm would be enough - I'm just not too sure you can fit it.

Tubing is gunna be incredibly tight as it is looking at the sketches

I had to do some modding actually , but it works just fine

I have already figgured how i would have done it, after one hour play with the rads :P now its perfect do do the tubing...i will need to get some slifittings and plastictubes from bitspower to make it cleaner
