My System Specs

Default

I once tried the Prodigy for a build... returned it the following day. The build quality is unacceptable: flexing "handles" when the case is empty, horrible button/port placement and an extremely restrictive PSU compartment all make it a fail for me.

Most manufactures call it a '240'...not a dual 120. Is it 'correct'...yes. Its std lexicon now. Is it 'right'...that is debatable. Just saying. :P

Exactly what they are. 120mm rads.

If one were to load this case up with custom watercooling, is it safe for transporting back and forth between LANs (loop not drained obviously)? Never dealt with a watercooled rig before, so I'm not so sure how solid they actually are

In some cases, they are even more solid than air cooled cases as tubing can provide support for your GPU... I've never had a problem with my watercooled LAN rigs, so don't worry about it. Just don't toss the case in the trunk ;)

ya, wasn't worried about the GPU at all, I was wondering how fittings hold up when they're being bumped around in your trunk.
