Well I finally got my Aerocools after a VERY late and tired UPS driver dropped them off. Spent an hour getting them hooked up and installed and only to be...... dissapointed. First major thing was even with the fans in silent voltage mode, the twin 140mm still have a pretty loud "wooshing" sound being in in the front of such an open chassis grill, my Gentle Typhoon AP-13's were A LOT quieter despite the lower airflow and im willing to bet even my AP-14's would sound much quieter. The 120mm Aerocool is much more gentle with its airflow noise but that leads to the next dissapointment, I don't like how the case lights up with these clear plastic fan cases which is something I was worried about from the beginning vs if the frames were smoked tinted.

Too much of the red LED light mixes in with the clear fan chassis and basically becomes a weird " color mix" effect inside the case, especially with the white fan blades. The white blades do like when not in motion, adding nice contrast to all the black and red in the case but beyond that, its simply not having the desired lighting effect that I was hoping for and with the noise issue on top of it, looks I'll be sending back to newegg and starting from square one

*sigh* Sure am eating restocking fee's lately, I need to get this figured out fan and lighting wise. Now I wish I had given the Bit Fenix's a try but lots of people said they have clicking noise issues at low RPM's and that would drive me insane with this case. Thinking of just getting a small white LED strip to contrast with the red LED's and then stick with regular non LED case fans. I know Corsairs have been getting alot of attention but i've AP-13 and 14 Gentle typhoons just sitting here so maybe i'll get some rubber vibration screws and attach them that way to reduce noise a bit as the ones that come with the Aerocools are nice and LOTS easier then dealing with screws.

Sigh....trial and error in the end I guess.

I did get my AX750 yesterday and I really did like how the white cables looked in the case but then I saw Newegg was having a great deal on the new AX/i platinum psu series so I ordered a AX860 thanks to Corsair, im gonna get a full refund and no restocking fee for AX750.

Just sucks over all cause I was really looking forward to getting this all done and showing of my case and now thats put on hold till I get all this sorted out

Let's see if the HAF XB supports the hardware that was inside the Corsair Obsidian 800D whistle.gif



Mobo/CPU : GA-58-UD3R [ GIGABYTE ] + i7 975x | CPU Cooler : H100 [ CORSAIR ] | Ram : 3x4GB [ G.SKILL Sniper ] | PSU : HX-1000/HX620 [ CORSAIR ] | HDD : 2x 2TB 3.5" [ WD/Seagate ] + 1x 64GB 2.5" SSD [ Kingston ]















...and finally

1. How good is the support for water cooling?
3. I keep hearing that with a large power unit that the bottom of the case lacks air flow, true?
If this case works well with air flow/ and or water cooling plus space for two full graphics cards, I'll know what to buy.

1.The H100 from Corsair easy fit.
3.The bottom has a filter that retains the dust and keeps the air circulating in the PSU , look :

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

The HX1000 has 200mm and i can accommodate the cables wink.gif

@Binary Ecyrb love your outside case design, looks so sexy. Did you do that yourself?!

Edit: Alright i feel like this is a stupid question but do you think i should install my psu upside down so the fan is going out the bottom?
