well the rear 80mm and 120mm should be exhaust so you can save some money by not buying those filters.

Hi all, speaking of fans. I know its been brought up a few times, but the 140mm front optional fans. Can they be mounted on the outside without any modification to the case? I saw one post mentioning they had to trim some part to fit them where the stock 120's are. Or do they fit also on the inside (like where you would attach the 240mm radiator for example)? If they fit on the inside, how does that affct video card length?

thanks!

I have my 140's on the inside, and you could still fit a monster GPU in there.

i have 690 vid cards.. and i have about 55mm of room inside with a few mm to spare.. i use it for a 55mm thick rad.. and have the fans on the outside.
post #1005 of 10493
It's good to know that the 690's fit so well. I'll eventually be upgrading to a custom water loop with atleast 2 radiators once my setup is complete and I have the extra money. I'm running a 670 and eventually gonna get a second, so knowing that the 690's fit is great news for me smile.gif

I have fit 140mm cooler master blues on the outside without modding. but it took a lot of patience. On my new XB I will probably mod if I cant get it work easily.

For radiator fit I have a UT60 on the inside with a pair of Gigabyte 7950s. By measurement there is only about 15mm of space from the rad to the cards. I have extra fans coming but I don't believe they will fit with my cards. My solution is to have a push only on the slot side and a push/pull on CPU side.

Yea that sounds pretty tight. The Yate Loon 20mm slim fans are the thinnest decent fans I'm aware of.
post #1008 of 10493
Thanks for the reply guys. I wanted to put in the 140mm, and these answers helped a lot. Well if you can fit a 7950 which is 275mm or almost 11 inches long (10.82) and still have some room to spare (15mm) against a UT60 rad which is roughly 60mm deep or 2.36 inchese I think thats great! 275mm is pretty much 99% of the cards out there, while the GTX 690 is about 280mm or 11 Inches long.

Considering the 140mm fan is 25 mm or roughly 1 inch deep. A GTX 690 + 140mm Fan will leave roughly 1.8 inches to spare given the above. Phew....had to think about that and confirms the above.

Correct me if Im wrong of course.

Hey guys,

I can honestly say I have been stalking this thread for a while now. You all convinced me to get this HAF XB case, and I love it. I went from a Thermaltake Level 10 GT to this and have zero regrets.

I am wanting to put put purple LEDs in this sucker with the LED setup that Ramsey77 has posted about a few times. My question is, Where would be a good place to stick these things? I keep looking around and see nowhere reasonable besides possibly the motherboard tray or the bottom of the case but I don't really want LED lights blinding me when I go to look inside.

At any rate, I am still in the middle of finishing the build and should be done within two or so weeks pending money situations.

On my son's XB I put them along the inside edge around the top. Gives a nice glow to the board and goodies but you cant see them from the outside.
