  • In need of Bitfenix Prodigy Mesh Side Panel

    Hey guys, i'm having a problem with airflow and overheating isssues on my gfx card with bitfenix prodigy case. Since i bought the case windowed edition, i didn't have the mesh side panel. However this window restricts airflow too much, and was wondering where i could get the original mesh side panel from? I've looked everyone i know, could anyone help me out please?

    Whats the fan set up in the case, how is your cable management and what GPU is it?

      i have a bitfenix spectra pro 230mm at the front, corsair h100i running push pull and a gigabyte windforce r9 280x gfx card, http://www.aria.co.uk/Products/Compo...roductId=57786

      cable management is good, no cables blocking any of the fans. It's just when i put the window on it overheats, when i have it off, the gfx card runs cool.

          Is your H100 push/pull intake or push/pull exhaust?

          Ideally, it should be exhaust to prevent heat dump, so you want it blowing out the top of the case. Also, if you've not already, get an exhaust fan for the top/rear of the chassis.

          If temps suffer, always try and draw cool air in from the bottom and front, and exhaust warm air out of the top and rear. Heat wants to rise, so don't fight physics.

            as of now, it doesnt have an exhaust fan in the rear, however the h100i is exhausting air through the top

              I imagine the problem is that in the prodigy it puts the GPU quite close to the window/mesh side panel, so without the mesh it won't ever get good airflow.

              How much space do you think there is between gpu cooler and the side window ?

                Perhaps give Stulid a PM (or email stuart@bitfenix.com)? He's a Bitfenix rep and was active earlier today, might point you in the right direction for a replacement panel.

                    I added an exhaust fan, doesnt help. I emailed bitfenix about this problem and they said that they dont sell the meshed side panels on their own

                      Got an almost identical setup to you but with a meshed window and have no problems with heat.
                      Try ebay and the like, surely someone wouldn't mind swapping theirs.

                        Alternatively, you could mark up an alignment of dots and drill your own ventilation holes into the window?

                            Hi, I'm in a similar position my 7950 is in the upper 80s when I've got the windowed side panel on, I bought the CaseKing version which only comes with a windowed side panel, is there anything you can do to get me a mesh one please @stulid I'd be willing to pay for a black mesh sidepanel.

                            Thanks

                            P.S. I sent you an email about the issue

                              I am having the same problem did you sort out a solution?

                              having no luck with bitfenix i created a support ticket ages ago and no one has even replied I heard the customer support was bad but didn't realize they do not even reply.

                              Most annoying thing is I noticed I have another issue which has been reported over the net with the top handles the screw bit is a weak poorly designed plastic that has broken (never moved the case only noticed it when removing the side panel)
