I might try that!
A fellow Brazilian, has, as I came to know through this topic, succesfully imported a XB case!
I sent him a PM asking for more information, but still waiting for an answear!

Thanks a lot!

Got my aero cool sharks in the other day. The 120mm I have on my h60 moves an insane amount of air compared to the fan I had before. Dropped my temps by 5°c

Welcome to the Haf-Xb Case club toyz72! cheers.gif It's true, your Noctua cpu cooler suits this case very well with the top ventilation feature, I love the pics! I have added the one above to your name in the OP. Thanks for sharing

I think (bolded) this as well and mind you I own a HAF 912 case and part of that club too just because the HAF XB is a different form factor case altogether and not a tower obviously.

I couldn't agree more. The only thing this case shares with the other HAF models is the look of the front panel. I am really glad we have our own thread to compare notes, because we would get lost in the thousands of pages that the other HAF club has.

Hi all, I just joined this board mainly because of this HAF XB fan thread. I really like this case, as it will fit my space perfectly. It isnt overly heavy, so its easier to carry around. And it's unique. I like that.

My main concern is a few things, which I am having a hard time finding as I was browsing this thread.

1. If I attach the the 230 mm top fan as an exhaust. Will that affect the 180mm clearence for an Air cooler? I saw a mention that it does and limts it to around 155mm. Is this true? That way I wouldnt buy a cooler that wont fit and find a more lower profile one.

2. Fans. With 2x 120mm pulling air in, 1x 230 mm exhaust at top. Is the 120mm rear exhaust option still recommended or will that exhaust more air out then what is coming in? The bottom has optional fans. Even though the PSU is pulling air from the bottom through a filter, Im not putting anything much in there beside 1 or 2 SSDs on the rack. I will not really care to use the X-Dock. Should the smaller 80 mm fans be installed for exahaust still? I guess Im asking simple is, what is the best airflow setup for the HAF XB?

3. My main concern is last. PSU length. The case states a maximum 180mm length PSU. However, the PSU I am really aiming for is the Seasonic-X 1050w. It's length is 190mm. Will 10mm be such a huge issue especially since I have no interest in utilizing the X-Dock? I plan to leave the X-Dock as is, with no future consideration for use. Will a 190mm PSU work in this case? If not, the Corsair AX850 is the other option being shorter then 180mm, but I rather have a bit more overhead in the watts since their prices are so similar at times.

Thanks to anyone who can help me answer these questions as they are the only things holding me from taking the plunge.

1. Yes adding a top fan will drop your HSF clearance range to around 155mm-145mm depending on fan, as some people have found out the hard way

2. With a 230mm exhausting, unless your 120mm intakes are high CFM, your gonna suffer from negative pressure inside the case, so your gonna pull air/dust in from every air vent in the case. Which really isn't bad considering this is a HAF case after all, just keep in mind your gonna have dust being sucked in from all over rather then just the front panel that has the dust mesh. If your only running SSD's on lower level, don't bother with 80mm unless they are low CFM/noise, otherwise its just more noise with little benefit

3. It will be somewhat tight but that PSU will fit in just fine thanks to the rear PSU extension bracket. Remove the X-dock PCB if you need the extra space and not planning on using it.

Thanks for the reply! I think I will forgoe the 200/230 mm top exhaust because I will be puliing more air into the case through the exhaust as you mentioned. Would 2 x 120mm front and 1 x 120 rear create more equalization? and have the top just left as mesh.

Removing the xdock PCB will only remove the frame work behind the clips while leaving the front clips for the xdock in place? I dont want a big gaping hole there either.
