[Official] Cooler Master HAF-XB Club! - Page 783

post #7821 of 10491
Yeah just remove one of the trays and the fan controller should slide straight in. Certainly the width will be OK. The height should be OK as well, but if it isn't. the plastic the front panel is made from cuts easily and isn't so brittle you risk cracking it when cutting it.

The dimensions of the controller are on the page you listed, give it a measure and see if it goes.

Scythe fan controllers can usually only handle up to 12v per channel. So don't go plugging in too many fans. I did, I plugged 6 120mm fans into 1 channel. That killed it alright. Good excuse to go out and buy one of these rood boys.




The more observant xb owner will notice that the PC above isn't my xb. It's my temp build while my xb is undergoing reconstruction. Not the best pica to show off the fan controller, but worth looking for if you want one that can handle more than 1 fan per channel. Lamtron make good quality controllers. I'm not a big fan of Scythe NZXT or Aerocool fan controllers. The internals are a bit limp for mine. There's 17 fans in my case.

Same with me. Having it upside down was less restrictive with the tubing than having the block sitting visually correct.

17? Are your chassis walls made of fans? biggrin.gif

I wouldn't go that extreme, 2 fans in front, 1 in the back and maybe mod one on the side at max. Do you think that the Scythe could hold 2 fans on one channel? I see no point in keeping the 2 front fans in different ones, unless it's the only option. For 1 13€ controller, I don't except miracles anyway.

Speaking of walls made of fans, has anyone mounted three 92mm fans on the side panels?
Pics would be appreciated.

If you mean on the bottom half like i did with the 2x92mm fans, you might have issue's with 3. The Drive cages might get in the way of the 3rd one if you get 25mm thick fans

 

It depends how you mount em. I think 3 fans by themselves would fit, but the magnetic mounts i used woulda got in the way of the drive cages for the 3rd fan

I've got a couple Rosewill Hyperborea 140's in the front. 85 cfm's and 21 dbs all for 13 bucks each. I've found these to be the best value/performance fans.

How do you like that Apogee Drive 2? I've been on the fence about getting one to redo my loop and try and make the most use of the space in the case.
