You can run these little guys as low as 800rpm and there oil-pressure bearings are very quite.
I also heard that you are concerned about dust? There was a guy somewhere on the forums that was making dust filter mods for the side panels and bottom vents, might want to think about those options as well. It would be quite easy to get some fabric screen and cut them to fit all the vents that do not have fans mounted to them, it will also help with the overall case acoustics. smile.gif
bottom vents may bring in a lot of dust if case is on the floor:

I wish money wasnt an option hah! I think this is a amazing case at the price they are going for. Unique and will sit on my table beside my desk without looking odd (square table, 55x 55 LxW) with a sqaure box smaller in dimension then a taller tower.

Noise is less an issue since the case is about 3-4 feet from where Im sitting. And I like the sound of a few fans going. I'll look into those 80mm as intakes though Im not so sure how effective they will be since that rack in front of them will hold just 1 SSD drive really lol.....

I don't know about everyone else but I just took the whole tab off. It comes off very easy.

I know exactly what you mean as I did a clean break right to the end with my personal XB in which I need to do a build in yet - I only installed my 2 140mm YL fans in front a 120mm YL in the rear.

Thanks everyone for helping me sort out my remaining questions. I just purchased the case which I consider quite a good deal compared to the HAF X tower which is at least 50%+ more in price.

Just a follow up question to installing the 190mm PSU comfortably. Again, I dont care for the x-dock feature really.

I was looking more at pictures of the bay since I have not received my case yet, as it is on order. It seems the actual X-Dock cage is solderned down and cant be removed? However, the X-dock backplate where the PSU connections attach can be removed as I can see screws there. If the cage cannot be taken out, but the x-dock backplate can, do you think it would be easy or wise to route the PSU cables through the side of the cage where there are relative large gaps? I included a picture? Im not sure if this is what was meant by removing the PCB to give it more space?

post #379 of 10491
I mean just remove the PCB board and you can stuff the cables into the X-dock if your that tight on space since you won't use it as thats what I did with mine. And yes, you would have to dremel/drill to remove the riveted in cage which woudln't be a very good idea if you change your mind about the x-doc.

Thanks again, I got it now. I also found a picture with a 191mm PSU installed in the HAF Xb without removal of the PCB as well.

This is an Ultra X3 800w PSU into the bay,



So I guess I will play with it and see if I want to remove the board or not. thumb.gif
