10 times better is a pretty bold claim. Do you have a link to this test, or are you just guessing?

it's just a manner of speaking , i mean that tons of the big case out there can give you a better air cooling .
It's not that i don't like it , i own one , for the price it s amazing , but it s really not the best case.
and in the 10x time better i was factoring the features too , the problem with the 200 mm fan and tall cpu cooler , the lack of filters on the fan port ,....

about an 1&1/4" difference. with the psu in, it almost covers the top 2 screw holes leaving only a little tiny bit visible.The bottom holes are still accessible which i am going to use + some of the case screen i cut out to hold a foam filter in place. I'm also replacing the psu screen filter with a peice of foam. If your a stickler for filtering something has to be done because about 1/4 of the psu fan sticks outside of the case.

Thx Jollygreenjoint!!
That is very detailled. Photos are a great help.thumb.gif
Maybe the fan is not sooo far outside with the AX1200?

If it was me, I think I'd rather custom make the PSU cables; possibly with an angled connector.biggrin.gif

I would disagree a lot. The XB with it's flat design can passively cool a system without any fans. With the screen top, all the heat naturally goes up and out of the case. As a gaming rig with only 2x PWM 140mm front and 1x PWM 120mm on the CPU my system is in-audible and very cool. The fans only spin up under full load ultra settings gaming.

Currently I am in the middle of a rebuild and I am cooling a 3770 with a Hyper 212 heatsink only. No fans in the case at all. Actually I don't even have the heatsink mounted it is just resting on the CPU with gravity. 32c resting, 45c desktop workload. I'm not gaming right now..

This is why I love the case. There are no airflow blocking panels and with very few fans, even low rpm fans, the system can perform well within temp margins. One of my fellow techs at work runs the HAF X and he hates all the fans and the noise that comes with them. I out clock him and out cool him all day long.

Disclosure: I own two of these cases with very different builds. I am about to make a third for a fanless media server.

i own the 2 case and i know in which my system get better temp period , HAF X is better for air cooling but remember it 150% the price and it s huge , haf xb have other thing for it , but don't say such thing as it is the best air cooling case , i mean , are you serious ? because if you had read the previous posts you would have seen that it all started from this claim.

and don't compare two different system for temp. It make no sens . I have both case and i have tried the same system at same oc in both , i don't really care what the friend of the friend temp was ,.....
if you want to talk temp gaming temp in bf3 1440p i get 55 with a noctua C14 after hours of gaming , 45 "desktop workload" which is just idle temp with a good cooler, is really not that good.

Yeah, I did water cooling for the first time back in 2002, it was fun to try and play with but it can make such a damn mess at times and moving parts around and simple upgrades turn into a major chore. I'm not the power house oveclocker or gamer I used to be so the simplicity and lack of maintenance needs of air cooling is just fine for me.

Ok, we all get you don't like the HAF XB case. Fine. But the rest of this thread is dedicated to people WHO DO very much like the case and we really don't need or want the negativity and borderline spamming against a product we all love for our own reasons. If you have nothing good to say, please leave and go back to your own HAF X threads. Continued trolling here will result in getting reported.

I only play bf3 and don't have anything overclocked. Nice thing for me is I turn it on, I play, turn it off and don't need to worry about temps. I based my build from squidoo.com as best build/$ performance. For just over $1000 I think that my build is fairly fast and graphics are nice and clean. I really need to upgrade my monitor. I am getting the asus VG248qe that runs 144 hz refresh rate. I will also be adding another gtx 660 as I know one will not fulfill the monitors capability. Then I will be very happy and still only have fans to keep it all nice and cool:)
