I know which one of those is going to be a hell of a lot easier to carry tongue.gif

Received one today for my brother, the case is solid quality!

 

Invest in a Data Vac and it should equal easy dust cleaning without having to remove the front panel.

So the HAF Xb is funny story. The pure concept is a chassis that has all the benefits of the test bench and LANcase but with the space of a HAF 922. That was 4 years ago when we started. We actually had XL-ATX support on the original mockup, but the problem is the motherboard tray was too large. The chassis would have only 8 PCI slots (instead of 8), and you wouldn't be able to use a removable motherboard tray.
The removable motherboard tray is needed to access all the lower cable management area. We paid attention to media who wanted an easier way of changing CPU coolers and M/B frequently without having to redo all their cables over and over. With the HAF Xb we designed all the PSU cables could be fixed to the frame rails, allowing your M/B to removed, swap your motherboard and plug it in.
HAF Xb is actually the smallest size we could make it while keeping to the pure concept. With one case you can test bench and use a 10" copper pot for nitrogen. Once you're done, you could switch out the motherboard to a normal one, button it up and take it home with the steel reinforced handles. No other commercially produced chassis can do that.
We are proud of the HAF Xb. There isn't a single chassis available on the market with the features to do what the HAF Xb does at any price. It has more features and time saving utility than testbenches twice its price. It has better cable management and water cooling support than than any LANbox at any price.
At the end of the day it is still a HAF X series. This means its a no-nonsense enthusiast chassis with the styling to match. We wanted to create a chassis that would blow away testbenches while being conventional enough to be used by regular people.

 

Ive bought 2 so far, have them stacked..!
