I can see doing that if you want a ton of lights. I got two strips for $20 (didnt have anything else I needed to get, and was buying something for $190, and needed a filler to get $20 of $200 at newegg), and its all the lighting needed in the front. A single strip in the back would be plenty to light up the inside. And no soldering required.

Even with a modular power supply like mine, it's still a pain cause all of the wires were meant to go 2x farther than they do in this case. There's a ball of cables in my case cause of that.
My brother just got a new Corsair GS800 PSU. That one isn't modular but the cables that he wasn't using, I just zip tied and shoved them on the other side of the PSU between that and the side panel. Actually doesn't look that bad either, and kind of wished I did that now too with the excess length now that I'm thinking about that. Oh well!

Running the H80 in a puish pull right now with the Corsair SP120 high performance twin pack fans. Not too thrilled with their performance compared to the stock H80 fans at this point in time. I think if I do a push pull and run the rear most fan on the outside of the case it may buy me the extra space I need to actually fit the top on with the 200mm. It's a little ghetto but it will work. Going to try that and see where it gets me. I'll get some pics tonight if all goes well. I love how quiet these SP120's are, but since I'm running them on a manual fan controller I can dial down the noisier higher rpm stock fans too even though they don't look as good.

BTW ZXT mesh fan controller works pretty well in the bottom 5.25" slot for a fan controller. It's one of the few fan controllers that is full bay length anf after pulling the "friction tabs" into the drive bay a little bit to provide extra friction it makes for a pretty tight solid fit in there. I also mounted it on the bottom figuring that worst case scenario i could attach a small L bracket at the back of the controller at the bottom of the case to limit it's rearward movement.

Slight update to my last post. Popped home for a quick lunch break and was able to successfully mount the 200mm by mounting one of the H80's fan's outside the case. the way the honeycomb dimples out isn't exactly ideal, but I think if I find some slightly longer screws and run a rubber isolator or two on each side of the backwall of the case I should be able to mount it securely and without flexing either of the fans.

Very nice choice on the fan controller, it's going to look perfect with this case. smile.gif

Does the lowest setting on this FC actually turn the fans off?

HI everyone!

I just received my HAF-XB along with some other goodies for my build, like a Corsair AX850. I was excited to start the build and so I began with the PSU well low and behold the PSU doesn't fit into the PSU extender due to the Fan Grill and screws. I also noticed that if it did in fact fit the intake would be covered up and wouldn't line up with the bottom of the case. Anyone having the same issues? I seen another member with an AX750 which I would think would be having the same problems.

Anyone overcome this issue? I would like not to remove the fan grill if at all possible.

Never mind I feel like a dumb @$$, I just bent back the attachment, never the less the only issue I have is the placement of the intake. I had emailed cooler master support for a flush mount because in all honesty we should have that option for those of us with smaller PSU's.thumb.gif

I made my own, for the same reason.
