That's quite nice of you but I can't see me traveling near Minnesota anytime soon. I think I'll have to bite the bullet and pay the $35usd total to get it. Thanx for the offer though. I will probably look around the web a bit more and maybe find an aftermarket panel...

If you're planning mods, might as well get extra parts while you're already paying for shipping.

 

They sell almost every part of the XB on the CMstore under the replacement parts section

I can confirm this, I have an Asrock z77 extreme4 and it only has 1 usb 3 header on the board.

in which case, xozat. Do you mean the USB 3.0 ports on the back of the mobo, if so. Check in your BIOS to see if all the USB ports are initialised . i'll defer to winterwarrior on whether all USB's are on straight out of the box. Asus ROG mobo's, the VI hero and VI formula aren't, but can't comment on the Asrock

Had my first go at vinyl wrap tonight, kind of pleased with the result, but might need to redo it. Only done the front bezel and my new Lamptron fan controller. The LED's are blue on it so needed covering up or blanking out anyway. Not used the controller yet, but just looking at the wiring and caps on it. It looks a top quality unit.

OMG this is killing me what is the XB evo? I'm about to buy a HAF XB and the Evo is much cheaper right now, like $40 cheaper. And as far as I can tell, it has "better" fans? And a different config of drives?
On http://www.coolermaster.com/case/lan-box-haf-series/haf-xb-evo/ there's a comparison.



Both come with only the front fans right? That page implies the Evo doesn't have X-Dock but you gotta assume it does, just look at it.

This is killing me cause I'd have bought the HAF XB already if the Evo wasn't cheaper atm and was easier to understand. I get that there's a different fan and drive config, but, like... barely. I mean, does that drive config mean the Evo has less space internally? Are the XtraFlo fans better? I mean it looks like the Evo is the deluxe version? But it's cheaper lately? My impression is the only point is if you want removable drive bays, but it just ain't clear.

If anyone can tell me it's OC's HAF-XB Club: What the heck?

They dropped the 2.5 inch x4 rack and it a 3.5 x2 rack in its place, and the same x dock in the front. The front fans are pwm as standard, no mods needed on the front panel to fit 140mm, that's about it

So you'd say it's better if you want to mound more 3.5s? And that's the only thing? Cause I won't have more than 2 SSDs and the EVO's significantly cheaper right now. Sounds like a win-win-win.

Ok so I bought a REV 1.0 HAF XB and did my build, this inspired my friend to do a build of his own. He bought just over the weekend a XB EVO and brought all the parts to put it together.

The differences are as follows.

The EVO runs basic JETFLO 120s, not like the 120s you see on newegg, but similar and they do move more air, the regular just runs regular fans.

Both have the ability to upgrade to 140s, but the EVO has the tabs removed so its easier, the XB has to have some tabs removed to make room. Not hard, just extra work involved.

The EVO HAS the Xdock, better design, its SATA powered not molex like before, and the ports are side by side rather than on top of each other like on a motherboard. Makes it easier to run cables on the EVO.

The cages are a bit of a lie. Unless he got screwed he only got 1 cage, it fits 2 standard harddives or 1 standard and 1 notebook drive with the included adapter plate. The pics advertise 3 cages but they only give you 1 and adapters to make use of it. The original XB like mine, has a 4 2.4 notebook drive cage and I like it better as it gives more room and holds more drives.

Other than this, they are exactly the same, just little differences to please the masses. Frankly I like the original one better but its for my own reasons.

So... with enough youtube time and forum searching... I have decided to delid my 4770k. I need to gather some thermal pastes... do we have solid suggestions? Thus far I am seeing that "Liquid Pro" is the best for the actual chip to ihs. Then arctic silver for ihs to cooling block. Qustion is, what Liquid Pro is it that I need and which Arctoc Silver os the best?

If you haven't ordered it yet, I'll be needing a windowed top too, we could order together if you like and split the bill. That way we (hopefully) both save on shipping a little
