I'm planning to get this case and I'm wondering if the case has good airflow and where on the case should I use for an exhaust because I have a h80 and I'm scared my pny gtx 670 will over heat and I'm also wondering which power supply should I get ax 760w? And does the case have good airflow?

Well...it's a HAF. That stands for High Air Flow. So yeah it has good airflow. There are huge grills in the sides that help with exhaust, as well as the top if you use the mesh top. Regardless, the pny GTX 670 has an external blower so any hot air it creates is expelled outside the case.

AFAIK, most people just run the one 120mm fan in the rear as exhaust, and even with an H80 on it you'll be fine. As for PSUs, the AX760 will fit in the XB just fine...other than that what you need for a PSU depends entirely on other needs besides case. I suppose it's as good as the next PSU..again, unless you're looking for something specific from your power source.

I decided to retire this case already. Due to it being too wide to fit under my desk, and too noisy even with Corsair QE SP120s / Silverstone AP122s running at 7V to sit on my desk. Got a 550D instead. Now I need to go through selling another case, which is always fun frown.gif

Yay i'm Gonna be a proud owner of a Haf-XB, Bought this morning.

I also Bought a Corsair H100i watercooling system to prepare for the coming system upgrade, Already shipped so wil be here tomorrow


The HAF-XB and fans, The HAF-XB is already in the warehouse but its waiting for the new fans i ordered with it. wil be send ready in 1 to 5 workdays so the HAF-XB wil be here in 2 to 6 workdays. lets hope 2

Funny that the site thinks its a mitx case is.

My old system. I wil first transfer this system to the new case and then gradually upgrade it. I think i wil take the psu extender from this case for the HAF-XB because my current psu is 200mm. wil tell if the extender fits the haf. i hope that it wil fit but i think i wil need to drill new holes.


my system specs are:
AMD Phenom II X965 With an Artic Atlon 64 cooler soon to be replaced by the corsair cooler,
a Gigabyte 790fxta- ud5 motherboard,
2x AMD HD5870 1GB edditions from Club 3D,
2x 250GB seagate disks in raid1,
1x OCZ Vertex 2 128GB,
Corsair HX1000W powersupply,
2x Stock casefans and 2x Articcooling Fans,
a Antique DVD player (3pc generations old for me),
a Blueray player think lg,
Al in a Lian Li X500B

Just wondering if anyone has good tip on 200mm horizontal fan for the top of the case ? I got the feeling that not all types handle the horizontal position well ......
post #888 of 10523
It is my understanding you must use Coolermaster 200mm fans as those are the only ones that will mount in the holes provided in the mesh top.

Hi all,

just joined the site but haf been following for along time, especially this thread ever since release of this sexy case
I m based in australia and as such am restricted to the window top version only, and CM will not give me any certainty for the release of either a mesh top version or panel itself

so yeah ive been waiting and waiting to buy this, holding off for the mesh top version
my question to the members of this club relates to the mesh top.
as i understand some of you have bought the windowed top, and as such may have the mesh top lying around. anyone consider selling and shipping one to Aus?

want the case but just cant push the button to get one unless i can get a hold of mesh top as ambients in my room can reach close to 40c

thx for ur time guys.
