Still haven't had chance to fit those GTs yet haha maybe this weekend. Or tomorrow. Or someday. Definitely maybe.

Who make the best fan filters for the XB?
My friend's recommending Demci, but they seem expensive.

define best? Handy, yes. Restrictive, maybe. Expensive, depends.
Alternative would be no filter, which is the cheapest but you gotta clean the rig once a week. Or go with screw-on (magnetic) filters like Silverstone's FF123B but they don't come in the special sizes like Demciflex makes them.

Howdy folks. Today I picked up a new HAF-XB to allow repurposing of a HAF-X case. Mostly just a guts-swap thus far.






This machine is primarily used as a hackintosh workstation for video editing. Doesn't mean it can't have some blinkenlights and bling, eh? smile.gif (10.9.2. Self-assembled patches, none of the tonymac junk).

Loadout :

An older GA-x58a-ud3r w/ a modestly overclocked i7-950 + 24GB ballistics tactical tracer running @~2000mhz.
Gigabyte GTX 770 2GB OC model.
Several crucial SSDs.
An aftermarket marvel yukon 88E8053 ethernet card for osx compatibility.
A new corsair RM750 power supply. (very quiet!)

It might be a week or two but I was planning on shortening + paracord sleeving the power supply cables as well as gutting out and replacing the stock 3.5 + 5 1/4 bays w/ something custom.
This thing has a 6 drive raid6 w/ highpoint 4320 that needs to find a home under the motherboard.
The h100i will get swapped for some EK cooling when I bother to get a new pump tongue.gif.

Blah Blah.

*EDIT*
Well; seems like in a HAF-XB w/ fans at 'quiet' speeds isn't sufficient to keep the nb/mosfet sinks decently cool on the ga-x58a-ud3r. Not a problem I experienced with either of my motherboards (have 2 of these things) in tower cases w/ top/back fans. +10-30c hotter in this case. Seems that this might need a creatively placed fan or shroud or some such.

Welcome to the club, and nice rig.

Damn now I want this case. I was originally drawn to the Air 540 but would rather have a shorter and wider case.

Why is everyone ditching the xb for the air 540? (reading through countless pages and it seems to be happening).

The 540 appeals to the watercooler more.
It has room natively for 720mm rad space whereas the XB only 360mm


Unless you're kpoeticg! wink.gif


I quite like the look of the 540 and the only thing stopping me from buying it is the amazing community within this clubhouse!

So what you're saying is, build a new rig with every case.

Anyone have one of these sitting next to a television stand? I want to build a HTPC for my kids. Plan on using most of my current rig. I remember falling in love with this case when I first signed up here a year ago.
