Fantastic work! I'm glad I got XBuildOTM before you posted! lol I'd of had no shot otherwise. wink.gif

Yeah you could put it on the floor but cases like this look amazing on the desk...im gonna move everything on my desk just for this case tongue.gif

Well I can also move everything else from the case, but I can not move my wife from my life so unfortunately the case will have to stay on the floor if I can not place it sideways biggrin.gif`

Can you possibly affix a heavy duty wall shelf to place this case?

I dont feel there is any drawbacks to trimming for the 140mm fans. So No complaints here. However, if I assume correctly, you are the CM rep mentioned previously, why the 2.5" HDD tray? I know their capacity and price are much more reasonable now, but a 3.5" will fit (I installed one), so could we ask the powers that be to offer a 3.5" cage? Pretty please? smile.gif

Unfortunately from our side at Cooler Master, we checked about putting a 2nd 3.5" cage previously. There are 2 issues, 1 is we designed this case to support most hardware. To those people with longer blueray or legacy drives there is too much interference. While this isn't a problem for people in the USA who use the low depth Lite-on type optical drives, it is a major problem for other regions.

The other issue is we planned the chassis to support a non modular power supply such as the Cooler Master UCP. With some power supply like that, you need as much room as possible for the cables.

In the end we left end users the option of removing the 2.5" drive bay, or including it. Any 3.5" HDD bay would not fit our standard of ease of usage especially considering bigger hardware.

On another note, how many people use this chassis as a test bench with no front panel, side panel or top panel? We are thinking of some simple adjustments throughout production and we are keeping a list of small improvements that could appear.

We will definately look into the 140mm front fan compatibility. Remember that our standards of structure strength are very different from those of a modder. If there is too little margin of safety, too much unsupported structure, even the slightest issue will cause huge shipping damages.

If the HAF Xb left the factory with the same holes as modders do at home, there is a higher chance of the chassis arriving to your doorstep broken. It's not as simple as "well I can cut a hole here at home and it should be done this way". A modder will always say "I want an empty chassis", but have to consider many things other than putting holes and doing crazy things.

CM MR HAF what is the current US supply like right now? I have been avidly waiting for Amazon to get more stock but there is no ETA on their availability.

Thanks!
