The only problem I'm having with this case is the top 200mm fan, I've tried 2, the Bitfenix Spectre Pro fit 2/4 of the mounting holes, but was not thin enough to clear the CPU cooler, have a 20mm thin green fan on the way...hopefully that'll squeeze in there!

I have a feeling you all are gonna suggest things about cable management lol, WORKING on it, first build so I'm still working on finding a place for everything biggrin.gif

Congrats on your first build....and welcome to OCN. When filling up the XB you have to layer in the cabling so that a cable pops up right where it's supposed to plug in. Good cable management also allows better airflow thru the case. Once you think this through...it'll be a lot neater inside the case and you can light up all your nice new hardware.

Dear Friends

 

CoolerMasterHAFXB-PSUSlot 117k .jpg file  

 

I would like you to ask for help in the implementation of the two measurements in the case Cooler Master HAF XB EVO or standard edition (I think that both versions of the case are the same). Can you measure and indicate how many mm or cm is for the section green labeled 1 and red labeled 2? Red starts inside the case, when the increased shelf for PSU starts and ends outside the case when the PSU bracket ends. Green one is the width of the PSU bracket.

 

Please see the picture.

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Best regards.

 

Sincerely

Hey Vamet,

Green #1 is 0.5" or 1.27cm or 12.7mm
and
Red #2 is 6.5" or 16.51cm or 165.1mm

Hope this helps! thumb.gif

Hi Vamet

The red line, the full length of the PSU bed to the outside of the PSU bracket is 175mm. The green line, the depth of the PSU bracket alone is 30mm. For the hardware you have, you only need a standard size PSU if your concerned what to get. A 750w would be more than adequate.

hmm... I just physically measured these in inches and Google converted to cm and mm... ? I also have a Seasonic 1250w psu in there, it
s tight, but it fits nicely.

As always thank you very much for great help! :) I need to buy you a beer :) So 180mm will be to long and will hang in the air with 5mm. Are there any possibility to mount PSU without bracket, let's say if somebody has 140mm long PSU? In such case the bracket is not necessary.

Hmm. Now I am confused, because welshy46 said:

 

Green 30mm

Red 175mm

 

You said:

 

Green 12,7mm

Red 165,1mm

 

So which one is true? Maybe one of you have got EVO version?

 

Best regards.

 

Sincerely

Well I have the XB, non evo. CoolerMaster lists that the case can take a 180mm PSU... The Seasonic PSU I have is about 190mm... with that stock back bracket.

Here, 180mm is what is listed...

My 190mm ish psu is tight, but works fine.
