[Official] Cooler Master HAF-XB Club! - Page 59

post #581 of 10489
Good evening everyone,

Sorry for the lack of updates but things have been hectic and I'm now back to work. I finished my build. It was not perfect, I still have to make the cabling look a bit cleaner. That being said, I'm no perfectionist when it comes to cable management, I tend to focus on air flow rather than looks.

I made a few more changes to my hardware, they had some pretty good 256gb SSDs on sale so I got a couple for 300$ CAN (that before using the mail in rebate!!). I was going to take pics today but I decided to go for another upgrade during my lunch break. (this last upgrade may seem like overkill but considering that around this time last year I almost kicked the proverbial bucket, I deserve this last upgrade 2x GTX 670s).

I will put up the first basic pics tomorrow.

Oh and regarding what happened to me, its just a cavernoma but most get symptoms in thir early 20s or 30s and I just has a seizure at 38 hit the groud and ended up with a huge cut on my brain on top of the cavernoma. Took 9 months for me to feel normal but still cant hear from one side. In other words guys, if you get weird headaches, slurred speech or have a hard time going through basic documents from time to time. It may not be fatigue or low blood sugar, it could be what i had. If my GF hadnt been there, They would have found me in a pool of blood (impact was so nastyt that blood was pooring out of my ear and I woke up 2 day later in the ER)

The very best for the new year to all!

PS. Yes, this case is the best I've ever owned and its half the price of the the cosmos S or the original Stacker i used to own.

OMG!  I am so so very sorry you went through your health ordeal!  I AM happy that you're still with us and hopefully make a full recovery!  Good thing you had someone who cared for you close by.  You're in my thoughts. smile.gif

 

IMHO I would just take your time to do whatever it is you're going to do to your rig as we can await the final photo results.  Sounds like a few nice new goodies you're acquiring there.

Thank you for adding me to the Club. I've been following your thread for a while and after seeing all of your builds I've definately decided to go with the HAF XB. It's currently en-route and I should hopefully be able to post pics of my build next week. I've got nothing amazing but I should be able to make a solid system. I was worried about my Heatsink but, and thanks to your thread, I was able to look up specs and find out that it would fit...despite being a beast. Thank you again, and if you have suggestions for me I'm very good with criticism. thumb.gif

Morning all! Newbie alert, just thought I'd say hi! smile.gif

Adding cooling to these looks a bit close, a 140 rad looks to hang a couple mm over this particular sata block.
But just stopping by to say hi, I'll post more as I can.

Welcome!

 

Are you installing the rad fans on the inside of the chassis?

post #586 of 10489
Even in a push pull configuration you should be able to fit the radiator and one set of fans on the inside and the other fans within the front housing of the case unless that's a 3" thick radiator you're using.

I'm doing a push pull, but with the 120, so it should be ok, though pulling a fan to adjust sata connections is a bitme. wink.gif
Oh, sorry, as shown I need the 70mm

Scythe slim fans on the inside perhaps?
post #589 of 10489
I'm still on the fence about getting this case...but, it is either this case or the corsair 600t I would like to purchase...I have a haf xb waiting for me @ work on hold until I decide... Does this case support e-axt, like the maximus v extreme? It looks like there is a lot of room..But, I plan on getting an H100i as well...just want to know if ill run into clearance issues or anything

Officially it only handles ATX , micro atx and micro itx, but with enough time, money and ingenuity anything is possible.
