Thanks man. Appreciate it smile.gif





One of these days i'll have to borrow a high quality camera from a relative.
Actually, this is something I wanna emulate.
What did you use for UV CCs? What size/model? And other lights? I really like like the idea of fitting them surreptitiously up under the handles.

I didn't realize that until recently lol. Can't see it in the picture but the writing 'Vengenace' in yellow slightly glows too. UV was a bit of an after thought while I was putting this together, but whenever I put in a custom loop I want UV orange tubing or liquid.

Got the 12" dual cathode kit and UV sleeving from Dazmode.com. The 24 pin is an heat-shrink-less extension from darkside.

No other lights in there at the moment. I do want to try a small amount of white led's just to get a bit more illumination in the case, and also keep them hidden as possible. Not sure if it would interfere with uv either.

Any idea where I can find a slim 200mm fan for the top panel on my HAF XB? I have a hyper 212+ installed

For the trouble I would recommend you to forego the 200mm fan..

IMHO the design of this case just begs it... I know that having the mesh top provides such a perfect escape for hot air, but why not maximize it? Unless you've got zero room, I say the $20 is worth it.
I'm just going to wait until I've got my GPU mounted, to measure and buy something.

If you need something ultra-thin there are definitely some options out there.

A whole lot of 200mm fans are only 20mm high. What's your clearance looking like right now?

Im not sure, am I supposed to measure from the top of the copper pipe of the cooler to the mesh? Im pretty sure a slim type fan will fit in there because the top panel is rised where the 200mm is supposed to go. I just need to know before I go out and buy one and doesnt fit. If clearance is an issue, I might just dump the hyper 212+, its a pain to have to remove it when Im doing a TIM replacement and may just get a closed loop water cooler.

I think Id need a 20mm 200, most of them are 25mm

Ya basically just use a ruler and see how much room is between the top of the GPU and the mesh. I'd say you need at least 22mm for a 20mm fan to get in safely. If you've got 30mm you'll easily fit a 20mm or 25mm thickness fan.

I think it will fit, but it will be REALLY close. You'd definitely want to do some real measuring.

Coolermaster claims you can fit a 180mm tall cooler with no problems, but picture appears to measure, top of mobo to the flat spot on the frame. Assuming tho, they mean to the top of the hump, there will be just mm's distance in the end.

The N212+ has a total height of 158.5mm so that will leave a mere 21.5mm until you hit the mesh. Factor in the rubber bumpers and the possibilty that measurements weren't taken from the top of the mobo socket with a CPU installed, it might NOT fit with a 20mm fan. I would say definitely not fitting a 25mm fan.

So do some measuring, and make sure before you order something that may not be able to work at all.

PS: using a top fan will disrupt the whole front to back flow this case was really designed for, unless you are generating a tremendous amount of heat, you will actually see little to no gain, some even saw an increase in temps. If you plan to go water-cooled, I would skip the fan and put the extra $$$ to use in the upgrade. Just my thoughts on it.
