You can try to fix this by yourself to mod the front panel and cut off these plastic clips

We are really sorry for any inconvenience caused by this issue. Therefore we would like to offer you some fans or a mousepad free of charge.

Can you not go back to the store for a refund? Where and when did you have bought this HAF XB?

Again we are really sorry for any inconvenience.

Kind regards,

You can get the fans in on the inside, and its not really much effort to mod the front panel, everyone else managed it fine...

I was thinking of getting two 140mm fans for the front of mine, do you think its worth getting them as hopefully the airflow is more, but it'll look a little worse being stuck on the inside of the chassis?

Like everyone else said the tabs on the front of the case come off very easily and the do not cause a loss of structural integrity when removed. So in reality they do fit with a little modification so no worries. Also they do fit on the inside of the case....

Remove the tabs, mount your fans and move on...

Is there a problem with putting the fans INSIDE the case instead of outside?

Hey I get what he is saying but the GLARING thing here Is it is a modding forum Is it not and besides this case is about a hundred nicca great VALUE I recon just my probably unwanted TWO cents worth.http://www.overclock.net/t/1390339/haf-xb-front-panel-manufacturers-defect#

Didn't have the time yet to do some major work on my HAF XB yet, as I'm still debating which wc parts to get for it. I think I'm settled on the Alphacool Repack Dual Laing D5 Dual 5,25 Bay Station as my res/pump, so today I decided to find another spot for my bd-re drive, to make way for the res/pump. As I didn't want to completely remove it from my case (you never know when you have to pop in a disk), I decided to remove the 2.5" drive bay and place it there. Using some laying around parts I created a small platform for it to sit on, so now I have both 5.25 bays free and whenever that once in a year day comes that I need to insert a disk, I just pop off the side panel and I'm good to go.

If it works then why not! I think it looks good overall...good job!

P.s. I love water cooling

Hey Guys,

I want to get some feedback with the parts of my new computer build to make sure that it'll all fit in the case and to see if I should change anything.

Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4
Memory: Corsair 16GB (4x4GB) DDR3
CPU: Intel Core i7-3770K
Graphics Card: Gigabyte Radeon HD7970 Overclocked 3GB
Case: HAF XB
Hard-Drive: Seagate Barracuda 2TB (3.5")
Power Supply: Corsair CX-750 V3 Power Supply
CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i
SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 128GB
Optical-Drive: Lite-On IHES312 12X Blu-Ray DVD

1. I want to set up Push/Pull on the CPU Cooler at the front of the case but I don't know if I'll have enough spacing for the Graphics Card. I would be using 2 of these fans (XSPC 120mm Xinruilian Fan 2000RPM) for it.

2. Is it worth having a 200mm top case fan for the ventilation? I'm asking this because I've heard a lot about dust buildup in the case and it seems like a practical use.

3. The way I was going to run fans in the case is,

The Push/Pull at the front will be blowing the air from the CPU out the front and I'll have a 200mm at the top of the case then a few fans at the back for air input. Or should I have the Push/Pull taking air in, and the rear fans pushing air out? I've never used a radiator or Push/Pull before so I'm trying to find the best solution.

Hopefully I'll get some good feedback/help here.

Thanks

1: As long as they are 25mm wide and one set of fans is outside of the case you should be able to fit the H100i with P/P. If you look back some pages, there are pics of this. (I wish we could have some cooling scenarios on the front page, of what works and what doesn't).

2: Nope

3: Use the front as intake, exhaust out the back. You don't want to starve the rest of your components of air, even if it is slightly warmed due to passing through the rad.

Good luck to ya, sounds like an excellent setup, although I would strongly suggest getting a modular PSU. They make life so much easier thumb.gif
