post #2711 of 10491






some more pics biggrin.gif

I haven't built a pc in about 10 years, In fact, The last pc i built had an AMD thunderbird cpu in it! I am starting to get back into it so thought the HAF XB would be a good starting point.

Hi it depends where you live.

Good fans with red led for an air cooler are
- Bitfenix Spectre pro (120 / 140mm) with red LED (10-15 €)
- Enermax Apollish Vegas UCAPV14A-R 140mm - red (no 120mm) with 18 LEDs and more light options - very expensive (about 28 €)
- Prolimatech Aluminium Vortex Silver Wings, Red LED - 140mm (my personal favourite - perfect for air coolers) - with 13 aluminium blades (22 €)

I like the position of the on/off switch in the 5,25" bay for your 2 kathods . are the kathods from sharkoon or lamptron?

i am in the uk, I have had a brief look but i have read the wing 12 pl fan is a good fan so don't want to change it just for the colour and suffer on temps.

Thanks, Tbh i am limited in tools at the moment so i didn't really have many places i could put it. I was going to install it next to the front usb but now it is in i like it wink.gif

Well guys, it's been fun following all your awesome builds. This club introduced me to OCN and I thank you all for that. But, I just changed my build and decided to switch cases as well.
post #2717 of 10491
yeah i think that is what i will do, i love the case but the only thing that let's it down for me personally is the small mesh window on the top. I want a much bigger window so i can see all the component's without taking the lid off.

It's a good position and next to the usb ports the power switch would not really fit really good, because the cables in the switch are too long and not flexible enough. your position is perfect in my opinion - just if you need the 2nd 5,25" bay, you've got to think about another position.
post #2719 of 10491
yeah i like it, I was thinking about that myself but if i find a fan controller or something that would use the bay i would probably remove the dvd-rw as i can always just use an external one as i rarely use it anyway wink.gif

I was just looking at the prolimatech which looks great but the only problem is it is a 140mm and i don't know if i would struggle getting it on the cooler or not.

heres some pics of my XB. i have made a couple simple mods to make it my own and have a few more to do. i made some boo-boo's while using the tools, but the CM store is cheap to replace the panels if i want to. it is the first case i have bought in a long time as i have built my last few cases from scratch. i still have a while before i fill it with my goodies. it will get watercooled. w/c components will be outside of the case. i will post a pic when it's done. i hope to be added to the club.
