Mine showed up yesterday evening. First order of business is to flush mount my PSU. If the piece I made works out, I will post a pic of it installed.</div>

<br><br><span style="font-size:16px;"><b>Welcome to the club</b> <i>Ramsey77</i></span> ! <img alt="cheers.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/cheers.gif"><br><br>
Yes, this case has a lot of potential for modding which is one of the major reason I love this case. Your psu plate mod is absolutely awesome.<img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"> I agree that Cooler Master should have that plate option as an extra accessory, or even a double extended bracket for those huge 1300w power supplies.<br><br>
We look forward to see some updated pics of your Xb! I will link your case to your name in the OP. <img alt="smile.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif">

Works good for anyone willing to spend some time on laying out your holes.<br><br>
I just used some scrap metal:<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1145461/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1145461" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1145461/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
The contrast in color isn't as glaring without the flash:<br><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1145468/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1145468" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1145468/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
I wish Cooler Master would have sent an extended bracket, AND a normal flush mount bracket. I fixed my only major gripe about this case relatively quick. <img alt="thumb.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/thumb.gif"><br><a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1145473/"><img alt="" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="1145473" data-type="61" src="http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1145473/width/500/height/1000/flags/LL" style="; width: 500px; height: 375px"></a><br><br>
This case has A LOT of potential to the modding community. I am thinking of removing the 5 inch bays so I can properly mount both sides of my fan controller next. We'll see how it fits, being just screwed to one side first......<img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"></div>
</div>

<p>Nice job!  Here's your potential new side business of making and selling these PSU plates. <span id="user_yui_3_7_3_1_1354106685276_1101"><img alt="biggrin.gif" id="user_yui_3_7_3_1_1354106685276_1103" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"></span></p>

<p>Received one for my brother and may be getting one for me, the case oozes quality and you won't be disappointed.  Many people are going "nuts" for this case from reading comments on the internet.  I can see with enough interest of Cooler Master expanding this line of cases a bit more and hope they do. <span id="user_yui_3_7_3_1_1354108592658_1076"><img alt="smile.gif" id="user_yui_3_7_3_1_1354108592658_1078" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/smile.gif"></span></p>

I can't believe this case was only $100. The build quality is amazing.

<p>I'm awaiting our (for my brother and then I eventually) Yate Loon fan order from Petra's as well as a Sunbeam 3.5" fan controller which I'll secure inside the chassis so to then start my brothers transfer build from his now CM 690II Advanced Nvidia Edition case.</p>

Hey guys. I'm thinking of picking up one of these bad boys for my rig. Do you think that the mesh on the top panel ( 200mm fan area ) could be replaced with a perspex ( glass ) panel so I could see the cpu and graphics card better. I single sleeved my power supply and spent quite some time on aesthetics so I'd like to be able to see what's inside. Thanks<br><br>
MOBO: MSI Z77A-G45<br>
CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k @ 4.3ghz<br>
CPU: Antec Kuhler H20 620 - Corsair SP120 Push/Pull config.<br>
RAM: Kingston Hyper-X Genesis 16GB DDR3 @ 1600mhz<br>
GPU: Sapphire HD 6950 2GB DDR5 OC Edition ( Hoping to Crossfire or get a 670 and then someday go SLI )<br>
SSD: Corsair Force 3 - 120GB<br>
HDD: Hitachi 320GB 5400rpm<br>
PSU: FSP Aurum Gold 700 ( wrapped in Carbon and single sleeved )<br>
CASE: Used to have a Zalman Z9+, got the Antec Three Hundred Two for free and now I'm looking for a new case as I sold the Zalman.

<p>One day CM will be selling these as well as clear side panels I hear.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You can probably do what you suggested provided the pins can accomodate the plexi thickness, otherwise you'll have to find another way to hold it on.</p>

Thanks for the quick reply. That sort of made my day. I might have to buy one of these now <img alt="biggrin.gif" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.overclock.net/images/smilies/biggrin.gif"> I think a DIY job would probably do. Once again, thanks

Has anyone that's put together their HAF-X build had any issues with pressing the front panel area (around the usb ports, etc) triggering a reboot or power off?<br><br>
edit: I've had my build together for a week now, posted some pics in the HAF thread let me find them so you can add me to the club.

<p>Maybe you could provide us here photos of the front of the case without the front panel on concentrating on the PCB area, maybe we can see a possible "defect" as well as a photo of the back of the front panel where the power button and such are.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also you can try a suggestion to see if there's an actual problem with the PCB itself, that is to disconnect the reset switch plug from the mobo header and see if that stops the problem.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'll find out within the week when I do the transfer build on my brother's HAF XB case if the same happens with proven working no issue hardware components.  Hopefully others who have built their systems with this great case will be able to chime in.</p>
