Thanks and I have photos of the last case with the completed build as mementos then took it back apart while watching the super bowl last night - lol!

 

One HAF XB case from Tigerdirect and three from Amazon.

 

Amazon customer service is great, Tigerdirect is not that far behind IMO.

 

Newegg, depends on who you get, luck of the draw as they say.

I still have to pay sales tax on Newegg orders here in NJ, but thanks.

Hey guys and girls, new to the forums, and relatively new to the building community. Built my first computer into a Haf 912, and after stalking this forum for about a month now, I have decided to go with the Haf XB. It will be here tommorow and hopefully in good shape. Gonna be swapping my GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX, AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Processor Black Edition, and Crucial m4 256GB 2.5-Inch Solid State Drive into the XB. I'm upgrading from sli'd EVGA GeForce GTX 560 Ti DS Superclocked 1024 MB GDDR5 to a single EVGA GeForce GTX670 FTW+ 4096MB, and also installing an H100i with SP120 Quiet edition fans in P/P setup. Was wondering if anyone possibly had any suggestions for anything I should trade out or upgrade while I'm in there.

Don't worry the case will be fine as so far the bad ones were only reserved for me. lol!

 

I don't see where you need to make any other hardware changes other than the question on what PSU you'll be using?

Oops, forgot to put in that I will be using a Thermaltake SP 850 partially modualar until I can upgrade to a Corsair AX850.

Finished putting together my old system into the new XB.

And as promised, a photo of my 21cm psu.

One concern I have is that the front 140mm intake (left) blows air straight into the exhaust of the gpu, right below the two 6-pin power cables. I've put my finger there while running furmark and the hot air just sits there.

Bumpin my question from earlier:

I have a question, though, because I'm switching to liquid cooling soon and will be using the XPSC Raystorm 750 cooling system. My question is mainly a general radiator question, though. I'd like to bolt up the radiator to the pre-fabbed front location on my XB, but I'm curious over how bad that is going to heat up my case when it draws warm air in.

Do any of you with front mount radiators have your radiator fans drawing air in, thus bathing the motherboard and GPU in warm radiator air?
Will a decent exhaust fan be enough to compensate for this, or am I going to need to install a large top mount fan?

Thoughts?

I've seen many people on here with the radiators on the front acting as intakes, they all say they have good temps, so I wouldn't worry about it. Unless you have particularly hot gpus in sli

Hey guys, I recently got this chassis and loving it thumb.gif
But I now find myself wanting to drop a Gigabyte X79-UD5 motherboard into it. Will it fit in the chassis?
According to gigabyte its a ATX board but from talking to other people they say its a E-ATX board.

Thanx in advance.

So after finally managing to overclock my AMD a8 core I came to the sad realization that my corsair h50 just isn't cutting it. Currently I have it overclockedto 4.1ghz and I'm hitting almost 70 degrees while running prime95. So logically my next step is to build a custom loop! I just dropped about 5 bills on wc equipment lst night and it should all be arriving sometime later this week. I'm super excited as this is my first venture into custom water cooling! The only outstanding concern I'm having right now is with my PSU. I'm worried that 600 watts just might not cut it after adding the water pump, what do you guys think?

Fill out your specs in your profile so we know what you are pushing with your psu.
