I got mine a couple weeks ago, and I really like it. It is a whole lot better than the rosewill future case I had before.









My build consists of
Intel i5 2500k
Antec h2o 620
Gigabyte ga z68a-d3h-b3 (which is crap)
EVGA gtx 660
rosewill green 630 watt
Corsair Vengeance 16 gigs
intel 520 120 gig ssd x 2
Seagate 1tb hdd
cougar fans and red leds

Looks good. I had the Rosewill Thor v2. Really liked that case except I found out it was way too big. The 3x 230mm fans are what caught my eye but when I actually built everything, I found those fans dont move any more air than an average 140mm. Also the there was entirely too much wasted space in the thor case.

I feel like the haf xb is really close to the perfect case. Different for sure but I really like it. Heres some pictures of mine with the improved cable management. I am seriously considering ordering the matching atx power extension and a 120mm blue fan for the back.

I need to work on the cable management downstairs, but I got the top looking pretty good. I got bored a couple weekends ago so I tried sleeving any cables that were showing. It turned out decent. I used the para cord stuff in the sporting good section at walmart. The only thing I dont like is that the para cord is camo, it doesn't go that great in the pc.

That looks good, would look good on mine; would go well with the sabertooth board lol.

I haven't done anything with the bottom part with cable management. No need in my opinion.

Just for "Completeness" in my opinions

Str8 from Corsair.

The quality is pretty good on them,some of the heat shrinks dont line up with each other but its not on to many of them and nothing to be upset over.

They do help with cable management because instead of a bunch of wires in 1 loom look you can coach these in to a much more compact shape to save room.

They are constantly on sale on Corsairs website as well so any 1 with a compatible Corsair PSU should def take a look at these.

Still horrendously overpriced and Corsair cables are really stiff to move around, or the older version the cables I had were when I had my 850HX for short time. I much prefer my Bit fenix extension I bought instead as I couldn't wait forever for the new cables for the new AXi series PSU earlier this year. Much for flexible and no heatshrink wrapping either and I was able to custom made my own cable kit on Performance PC's.com for about $23

Is this true ?

I know which review your talking about, Hardware Canuks if I recall. They were misinformed or got the information wrong as they really meant the top window panel which wasn't released at the time of review, but there are no side window panels from CM
