Well.. at least you have something looking forward to ;D
I ordered the XB and all the water parts from two places, and had it all the next day at 1pm ^^ lucky me.

What parts are you missing?

I have been waiting on a replacement for my 280mm UT60 (Original was damaged in shipping), and that came today. My 7950 Komodo VGA blocks got here too. Looks like I have my project for the weekend.

Still have to get my connectors for my VGA blocks, and a trip to Ace for some M3 copper or brass washers for the rad fans.

pardon the chaos... parts are everywhere right now.

Does anyone have pics of how they modded the front panel to accommodate the 140mm fans? I've reviewed this thread and there was discussion and pics a while back on this topic. The pics no longer load. Frozen CPU is offering free ground shipping which ends later today so I'm feeling a sense of urgency. I'm still torn between a 240mm and 280mm front rad. People have described the mod as being simple - the front panel is modded not the fans. I think if I knew what was entailed with a pic or two, I could decide between NF-F12 or NF-A14 fans. I don't want to dremmel the fans after paying such a premium for Noctua fans.

Gentlemen, any advice in this matter would greatly appreciated.

Hey Mofo, I don't have the pics you are asking for off hand as I am at work, however I remember quite clearly that there is a small tab on the front panel that can be trimmed or carefully snapped off with pliers to accomodate the 140's. It is really simple, and if nobody has the pics up by the time I get home I'll be more than happy to post a pic. The tab in question is striaght across the fron of the panel, about the midway "split" and is not a solid tab, there are i believe 3-4 sections across horizontally.

Hey Guys, like a few others here, I've been stalking this thread for a while and checking out all of the cool builds. I'm going to be ordering one of these cases soon, power-coating it, water cooling it, and then adding 2 x 120mm fans to each side. Below is a link for my build log if anyone is interested. Thanks!

Hi Guys,

Do you guys want a bigger HAF Xb? or a smaller one. With the HAF Xb we designed it to be big enough for water cooling, but not as tiny as possible. We could have made it about 1cm smaller on each dimension without much issue. Reason we made it bigger are for those of you with big american hands and overwattage power supplies.

We also didn't think people would use it as their primary system so we only put in 2 3.5" drive bays. A survey we did with testbench users showed they used 1 hard drive and 1 SSD so we adjusted accordingly.

As you see with this thread, this case is being used as a primary case with most hence some will want it with more refinements which will vary as comments to this come along.
