Thanks missed that one.

Interesting case, looks like a lot of the space at the bottom next tot the psu could potentially be wasted though.

I took a better pic of the space you were asking about.

Just got my HAF XB not long ago and finished setting up, I love this thing! Been waiting forever for just the right case to upgrade too. I ripped out the noisy Cooler Masters and installed Gentle Typhoon AP-13's, much quieter with still good airflow.

Your XB looks awwwesome! Everything from the exterior cosmetics to the cable management. Your pictures are nice quality which is pleasant to the eye. I have added you to the OP and name linked to your rig, thank you for sharing.

Well being I received the fan order late yesterday I went ahead and tried my method this afternoon with the Yate Loon 140mm fans.  Not doing my brothers build yet as I'm awaiting the fan controller.

What I did was with fishing line tied the upper fan frame to the upper case crossframe to keep it up without screws, then placed the front panel totally on.  Okay don't get excited, the front panel goes on fine without the fans screwed in but however I was able to ascertain the discrepancy.  The problem is that in order for the fan(s) to be screwed in the hole it needs to be approx 2.5mm higher from the center of each fan screw hole.  I was able to push down on the fans from the inside of the chassis with VERY little give and you couldn't forcefully line them up if your money depended on it. 

So either Cooler Master royally screwed up if they meant of 140mm fans to be mounted in the same place as the 120mm fans which came installed with the case or they only meant 140mm fans to be mounted in the inside of the chassis which there was no indication from Cooler Master about this which to me is another screw up as nobody knew till they tried installing 140mm fans themselves.

IMHO Cooler Master should offer people with this case a free updated front panel that corrects the issue so to easily install 140mm fans there, that is if it was meant to be mounted there initially.

I'm still hoping we get a response here in this thread real soon from Cooler Master about this issue, I already PM'ed a rep and maybe some of you can try to get a response from them as well.  I think we all need closure with this issue which again should have been explained when they said the front can fit 140mm fans IMHO.

Added edit: After discussing the front fan situation with my brother and showing him he's going to opt using 120mm fans in front and I might follow suit as well.  Now to order 120mm Yateeeees lol!, but probably will wait till Monday in case of Petra's promo's.


In all honesty I believe it is easy to see that the 140mm's need to be mounted inside. If you intend to run 140mm's on the outside it is not difficult at all. All you have to do is trim the plastic that juts out . I used a dremel and it took me 5 minutes.

I am running 2x140mm radiator and fans on the front and back (push-pull) on this case. I will be able to post pics tonight.
I am also running a 120mm at the back 120mm fan location, both fans and radiator are inside the case.
This is a pretty stealth water cooling build since everything fits inside the case.

What you need?
- 4mm Screws
- Steel Washer
- Nuts
- 2mm or more thickness Plexiglass Plate
- 3mm, 4mm, 5mm Drill's
- Drilling Machine and Tools
How to do:
1. Remove the Mesh from Top Panel
2. Cut the Plexiglass Plate into lengths 26.5cm x 23cm
3. Holes from Top Panel assigned to Plexiglass Plate
4. Drill the holes from Top Panel up to 5mm (to adjust the tolerances)
5. Drill the holes from Plexiglass up to 4mm
6. Countersink all Holes on both sides
7. Assemble the Top Panel with the Plexiglass
8. Clean all Surfaces and well Done
Pictures:



Next Time i will Fit my System in the HAF XB Case

I think I am going to do the same mod but I will be using rivets and painting them black to match. Should be a somewhat cleaner look than bolts.

HAF Xb is designed for 140mm fans inside the chassis. Current 140mm on the outside of the frame is not possible since the front panel needs structure to be strong. If you need to use 140mm fans, you know what to do.

Thanks for the info. I think there's a misprint in the manual, then, since it shows installing 140's on the outside.
