post #1051 of 10491
I've been stalking this forum for awhile and it has helped me answer a ton of questions i've had about this case. The one thing i'm stuck on is if it will hold a corsair h110. I know it can take the h100/h100i but can anyone confirm the big 280 h110?

about to burn all that tax money on a haf xb rig and just want to make sure before I order it all. doesn't help that i'm a noob smile.gif

We finally got around to testing some of the returned PCB from people who claimed their hard drives were destroyed. We found the PCB completely operational. But it seems the root cause of this problem was people were plugging in the molex power lead upside down.

In an effort to fix this about 3 months from now we will be making available a new PCB. This will not be shipped normally on new chassis yet, but we will be getting some in advance. Please do not ask customer service for them until they are released 3 months from now.

1. Changes the SATA mount to the top and flush mounted to the PCB so it will be less hard to knock off the port if end user slammed their PSU in (somepeople don't heed the 180mm length limit and break the back of the PCB)

2. Changes the molex power connector to 40mm lead, so you can grab it and make sure the installation is right

3. Improved layout that adds at least 5mm space, and is more stable connection

Until then please do not shove your PSU in the chassis if it is too long, and take some time to carefully plug in the power so it is not upside down.



Comments and suggestions?

i personally hate the whole hot swap setup. in fact,it was the first thing i took out. it would have been nice if they would have had a normal hdd cage in there that held two hdd's instead of a cage that hold 2.5 hdd's. and who uses that many 2.5 hdd's or ssd's? this is an area i found to be a big fail. other than that i'm happy.

 

Or IMHO better yet make them regular 3.5" bays to which the user has their choice to either have a hot swap(s) with a different locking system much like the current unused 5.25" bay covers do or mount to HDD's/SSD's or 3.5" fan controllers, etc, etc,.........................

H110 should fit just fine. Ive got a 240 rad with a swiftech microres on each side of it and it all fits neatly in the case.

1) I like the lead on it... (makes it so guys that have larger power supplies have more room... (i agree it should also be sata .. weird)
2) why not put the data connectors on leads too... (all for the sake of giving more room for a power supply...)

Got the h100 installed, decided to go push/pull. Doesn't look like I'm going to be rockin 5.0, but it's stable at 4.8ghz with average temps of 75 and max spike of 84 after 6 hours of prime. The temps are actually lower when gaming, which is all I use this rig for.

Finally got all my components. New fans, new drives and the NZXT sentry fan controller. Working on the sleeving now, good times. I'll post pictures once everything is in and the cables are cleaned up. Absolutely love working in this case...except that the system is currently all over the living room.

I test fit my UT60 280 last night. it is tight but it does fit and the holes line up. but cableing is tight. I am getting a sleeved extension for the 24 pin. Also I dont have room for a push / pull. I can only do push from the outside due to my video cards.

And yet you still bought the case, so you wern't deterred that much. The industry is moving towards SSD's now and slowly away from HDD's, is just the way things go. People who need expansive room for lots of 3.5'' drives don't buy the HAF XB, they get another case, simple as that.

might just stick with the h100i for room for push/pull plus i'm not finding a good static pressure 140, plenty of 120s.
