Big Bro' Prodigy
by Nikola Pantic

Nikola always fancied the looks of the Power Mac G5 with the unique feet/handles and the mesh in the front and back. Hence this, Nikola’s first real modification was called the “G5 Unlocked” (no pictures available, sorry!) which was a Power Mac G5 modified to contain regular PC components.

However, shortly after Nikola finished that project, BitFenix released their Prodigy, a mITX case resembling the looks of the G5. Nikola decided to take the Prodigy to the extreme by doing a total remake of the interior and exterior. Big Bro’ Prodigy is a water cooled E-ATX computer with custom water cooling running inside and outside the case, as well as custom interior and exterior.
