I had the HAF XB for a few days 2 weeks ago and really liked the case, just thought it was a little too big for a HTPC. I did like all the room that the case has and the air flow of course is fantastic. I bought the Fractal Design Node 605 which is a great case, but just very restrictive. I've had this case now for 1.5 weeks and I'm noticing some limitations. I want to place a DVD drive in the case but it will only take a slim line which with my cables not sure how it would fit and I want to add water cooling for my CPU, but can't do that because of how tight the motherboard is to the case fans. I just ordered a 660 Ti to replace my 560 so I can't even SLI in this if I tried unless I remove the HDD cages.

I am considering exchanging this case for the HAF XB again.

These are some pics of my current case to show how cramped it can get......

When I bought the HAF XB, I didn't know about this site and I can't believe how many mods people have done to the case which is cool.

I have some fans but they're too noisy and don't push a lot of air (don't use them since they're also blue led). Would nice to delete that and route that expense for something new.

Not me, completely useless in my rig

I use two Artic Cooling F8's and if they even spin up past the lowest setting they whine, but i guess thats just because they have a higher spin speed due to smaller blades. Also no temp difference really.mad.gif

I have a few blue led 80mm fans down there, but the only thing they do is cool off my stashed wiring and my pump on the lower level.

Very nice build, but I just about screamed as I scrolled down and saw those un-trimmed red zipties. My heartrate returned to normal after I saw you'd replaced them.

Agreed. I have the h220 on the truck for delivery now. I was thinking of doing a very similar setup with a single 120 in the back. I posted in the h220 thread, but wouldn't it be better to have either the h220 fans or the back rad fans reversed? Looks like all fans in his case are set up for exhaust.
