Nice box, Got any mods? Water Cooling, sleeving, pretty lights? Comeon we need MOAR!!!

also, glad the cat has a bed and knows where to sleep, most like to lay ON the cases because the warmth, but that's no good.

It is pretty generic. I got the 10 dollar top panel replacement for the acrylic. I also put 5.25" to 3.5" converters so it could hold more harddrives.

I suppose it makes pretty light patterns in the dark. I have since unplugged the front panel connector for the power button LED.


Here's a picture looking inside before I replaced the top panel.

My only fear is that the acrylic would collapse under the weight of the cat. As I haz a similar situation.

Dear Friends

 

First of all, I would like to say hello to everybody, it's my first post here on Overclock.net.

 

I am going to buy case Cooler Master HAF XB EVO version, but I have got some questions, which I hope somebody will answer - thank you in advance.

 

My system specification:

 

MOBO ASROCK FATAL1TY H87 PERFORMANCE FATAL1TY H87 PERFORMANCE
CPU INTEL CORE I5-4670K BX80646I54670K
CPU COOLING ZALMAN LQ315 LQ315
RAM CORSAIR VENGEANCE 8GB CMZ8GX3M2A1600C9
GPU MSI GEFORCE GTX 770 N770 TF 2GD5/OC
PSU CORSAIR CS550M CP-9020076-EU
HDD WESTERN DIGITAL CAVIAR BLUE 1TB WD10EZEX
CASE* COOLER MASTER HAF XB EVO RC-902XB-KKN2
KEYBOARD LOGITECH MK520 920-002613

 

*I am going to buy, but first I need to have some answers.

 

1. I would like to change 2x120mm XtraFlo fans in the front to 2x140mm, but I have heard that I will not able to, when mounting them from the outside of the case. I need to mount them from inside, is it correct?

 

2. I assume that 2x140mm fans will be mounted in the front panel from inside of the case. In such scenario, will my GPU not touch/come up to those 2x140mm fans? My GPU dimensions are 260x126x38 mm (10.25 inches length).

 

3. I would like to mount 1x200mm fan in the top of the case. May you recommend a particular fan 1x200mm for the top of the case?

 

4. My CPU Cooler is Zalman LQ315, when I will mount radiator with 1x120mm fan at the rear of the case (instead of preinstalled 1x120mm rear fan), will 1x200mm top fan not touch/come up to my CPU Cooler?

 

5. My PSU is Corsair CS550M with dimension 150x86x140 mm (lenght), when mounted in case with this official bracket, will it cover exactly the hole cut out (in case) for the power supply fan or should I change it for other lenght?

 

Thank you once more.

 

Best regards.

 

Sincerely

I'm sure more people will chime in with some better answers but just some quick ones for you

140mm fans will fit on the front of the case but you will need to cut off some plastic from the front panel, this is internal and cant be seen with the case together so its fine

200mm fan go with the cooler master mega flow, its the best fan and 1 of the only fans that fit the mounts

Your cpu cooler will be fine, you can actually fit quite big coolers in this case with no issues

As for PSU not too sure but I wouldnt worry about it, I only just realised my Silent Pro M2 doesn't line up properly with the fan hole at the bottom but its been that way for months with no issue. I have decided to make a flush psu bracket though as I need the extra space on the outside of my case, you could always make one too if you are not quite happy with the way the psu fits?

As for GPU it will fit fine even if you mount fans inside the case

Hope all this helps :-D

^^Everything will fit with room to spare. With the EVO you shouldn't have any tabs that need to be cut-off. Only those of us with the first revision of the XB had that issue. It was a small manufacturing oversight on CM's part and was ridiculously easy to fix. Your GPU size is fine along with your PSU :thumb:

 

Also, the 200mm fan isn't gonna help you AT ALL. Take advice and get the window top instead. The very small percentage of people that the top fan helps are generally running at least 2-3GPU's that generate alot of heat. You may even get worse temps by installing the top fan and messing up the front => back airflow

Didn't realise they fixed the tabs, thanks

Wondering now if maybe I should of got the window top instead of messing about making a white and black mega flow to match the thermalright fans I got lol

^ This. I couldn't have said it better myself. Go with a top window, not a top fan. It will throw off the flow and with only 1 770 and a water cooled CPU its not like you will have alot of heat built up anyways. Get some good powerful fans like the JetFlows or Cougars and let them suck in at the front and blow it all out the back and you should be good to go. thumb.gif

Have you got any official statement (source URL), that confirms that tabs are fine with 2x140mm mounted from outside of the case? So I don't need 200mm fan at all? In my region - Poland there is no window version to buy :( I haven't found any shop with this version. So if I decide to buy 200mm fan, there is only one fan - Cooler Master MegaFlow 200 Silent Fan, which will fit the holes in the top mesh like liamstears said below? Is the heat sink with attached fan of my CPU Cooler will not come off enough to interfere with the 200mm fan on top of the case?

Thank you for your reply liamstears, it helps me a lot. May you tell me what are dimensions of you PSU Silent Pro M2?

 

So how long should be PSU, to exactly cover whe cut out in case for PSU fan? 140, 150, 160, 170? I know that 180mm lenght PSU is over the cut out whole for PSU fan.

 

EDIT

There are only JetFlo 120, I haven't found 140mm JetFlo. I would like to have 2x140mm fans in the front of the case.

The actual specs of XB have been advertised as supporting 140's in the front panel since it was originally launched. Like i said, it was a small manufacturing oversight in an otherwise brilliant chassis.

 

I believe that it was fixed by Rev 2 of the XB (when they powered the X-Dock by Sata power instead of Molex). For rev 1, it was just a few plastic tabs in the front panel that had absolutely no structural or aesthetic effect on the case. CM reps have been in this thread a few times to get forum feedback. If you search in here you should find your info. Don't know anywhere else to link you that would specify the change, since it was meant to be a feature of the original release.

 

Also, the 200mm fan may very well conflict with a tower cooler. One more reason to just get a windowed top. I bought my window top separate, coolermaster sells it on their website for like 10 bux. If you can't get the XB with the window included, that's always an option. Either way, you have no need for the top fan
