Does that front faceplate cause much airflow restriction for the radiator?

In other words - the handlebars add around 9cm (or 30%) more to the height. If you forget about them, is your ATX case only 250x350x390mm big ? Don't think so. Lian Li PC-Q08 (ITX case) with a comparable feature set (that is long dual slot graphics cards, ATX PSU, possibility to use multiple 3.5" hard drives, 5.25" bay) but with no option to use watercooling is (W) 227 x (H) 272 x (D) 345mm big. Sure, Prodigy is 2cm wider (but it has much sturdier panels too), 4cm higher (but you can use pretty much any air cooler you can think about) and has pretty much same depth (-0.5cm internal, +1.5cm external suze) . It doesn't look that much bigger than other comparable ITX cases to me.
In short, most of the "big" size is due the handlebars.
