That should work as long as you also cut some space for the DVI connector to stick out.

I second that--there's enough room in there for it so I'm honestly not sure why they didn't just put the extra slot there.

Got my LED kit installed a bit better. Cleaner, more even light now. Still need to take out the mobo and do the cable management tango, it's horrid down there :O

Okay- going to pull the trigger on 2x 140mm fans for the front intake (inside the case). They won't be mounted on a radiator. Just mounted directly into the 140mm holes.

I've narrowed it down to 4 fans (ranked by descending preference):

Gelid Silent 14:

Cougar Vortex 140mm HDB:
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=69268&vpn=CFV14H&manufacture=Cougar&promoid=1449

Corsair AF140:
http://www.ncix.com/products/?sku=70456&vpn=CO-9050009-WW&manufacture=Corsair&promoid=1360

I've heard some people have had issues trying to mount the 140mm fans from the inside (again, not on a radiator). This goes specifically for the Corsair AF140 fans- can anyone confirm whether these can be mounted and whether they cause any rattling/turbulence/vibration noise? I've seen the Cougar fans mounted so I don't think I have to worry about those.

Any help would be appreciated.

CM rep stated way back in thread it would make case cramped and thus require a redesign to make it even larger for mobo tray and E-atx mobo's and they decided no to based on market demand.

Here's my addition to the club,

Just a change of case, no new components other than the white NZXT LEDs. they were on minimum brightness when I took these photos though guiltysmiley.gif

Probably going to put some more white into there as the blue is a bit over powering the white, but i want there to still be blue.

you 'll need to remove the side handle near the cards for sure . and i would cut the grid on the vg side and put dual 120 fan there to help cooling if you go 4 cards

Hello.
Two days ago I recived my HAF XB. I'm very happy wit the case.
The front fans are very noisy at full speed.

Like another user in this forum, I have a CM V8 and the top CM MegaFlow fan doesn't fit inside the case.

I was wondering how to arrange it.
Removed the plastic cover of the V8, but the fan still hitting the top of the heat pipes.

I don't like to put the MegaFlow on the outside of the case, and also I don't want to change the cooler.

Do you have any idea to fix it?

Also, there was a little problem with my graphic card.
Gigabyte GTX460.
I use the DVI to connect the PC monitor, and the Mini HDMI for the TV.
I have to trim some plastic in the MiniHDMI-HDMI adapter. It hit the case and can not conect.
Not a big problem.

Most people have been saying the top fan doesn't help much if at all (and can make things worse in some cases) so you might be better off just leaving the fan out. I personally got a window top panel to keep dust out of it. Just having decent intake fans will help far more than that top fan.

I've used the Corsair fans, and didn't really like them at all because they didn't move much air. Then when I removed them, one screw got stuck in the soft grey anti vibration crap you mount them with (worst idea by Corsair ever) and had to totally ruin it to get it off. My vote is for the Cougar fans. They are on a whole other level than the Corsair fans. Imo, of course.
