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.

I think the size is prefect. However, I wouldn't mind losing the 80mm fan support for a single 140mm rear exhaust.

And how in the hell would you go about doing that without greatly increasing the cases height? A single 92mm would make much more sense

This case is awesome...i use it as my main build...one thing that i would prefer having on this case is fan mount support on the left side panel (where the GPU is) for more air intake on the GPUs.

Here's my final HAF XB build. Pretty happy with how it turned out, just wish my motherboard/sli bridge wasn't poop brown frown.gif

Nice clean look!
I like the sleeved cables!
Just reminded me that I forgot the LED for my CPU block tongue.gif

Nice job!

 

You can either just mod that bridge like the photo below or just get another bridge - nothing too complicated. biggrin.gif

If I were to modify anything on it I would say maybe make it a little taller by adding a little head room to the bottom compartment, even if only half an inch or so for beter cable management over the bay enclosures. Perhaps even some sort of optional removeable fan bracket or rail for the sides of the upper compartment to add to the air flow. This is just something that I would have personally liked to see. But otherwise, I'm in love lol

2. Why would people "not" wanna use this case for a primary system? I'm failing to understand your logic here Coolermaster. Sounds like your testbench was not very realistic to me.

3. Oh, and not giving the Hot swap bay a SATA power connector was just a piss poor idea. Molex is dying out, SATA connector would have saved you from these fried Hard drive issues cause nimrods somehow plug in the molex backwards which would have been impossible with SATA.

4. We could have used a few more CM's of rear length for large PSU's so we don't have that rear PSU bracket sticking out

5. 2.5'' SSD cage shoulda been a 3.5'' cage with 2.5'' adapters.

6. A REAL removable front filter panel would have been really nice
[/quot
I would make the case a little taller and have the 3.5 " hot swap bays be more 5.25" bays. If the case is 1" taller and made the 2.5" bays into 3.5" bays, then the 2 80mm fan spots could be made into a 120mm fan and have some excellent cooling for hard drives!

Actually

"The Pontiac G8 is a rear-wheel drive sedan that was produced by Holden, the Australian General Motors (GM) subsidiary. The G8, a rebadged Holden Commodore, was released in early 2008 for the 2008 model year in the United States"

So yes they did make the G8. Sure GM renamed it, but that don't mean Holden didn't make it in the first place. Really not sure what your comment was about other than to try to make it seem like you just had something to say. You pretty much just agreed with me but changed it to say something different.

A 92mm fan really? why? I would just keep the 80mm fans rather than a 92mm fan.
