I could have sworn Dimitry said there was only the option for a 200mm fan on top?

Guys, listen at 1:54, "Only the 200mm fan is supported"... also, at 6:22 when explaining the negatives, it is written as "Top (200mm)..."

Not too sure how both of you came to the same conclusion with the 240mm, but i'm pretty sure mounting holes for large fans 200+mm fans are the same. :D

Dimitry has it right. Usually if it were to support different types it will offer the range. In this case, it does not.

I think you both need coffee.


The person you quoted twice is the same person.

And Igot6strings needs his coffee because I hear 200mm. Its all good though.

I don't think I've ever seen a 240mm Fan.

Sorry i should of said the Review ARTICLE says 240mm. I didn't watch the video. I rarely ever. Pictures are fine for me for a case.

This is an excerpt from the article:
"The top of Cooler Masterís HAF XB looks very much like the sides of most other ATX cases with a large meshed-in area that can receive a 240mm fan which hasnít been included. Unfortunately, it wasnít designed for anything smaller so buyers will have limited options."

See why I was confused?

I was not so much doubting the existance, as in saying I've never had my hands on one. And, those whom know me know I have just about every fan in existance :)

Hahah yeah I see it now. Thats funny because I do it the opposite way by always going direct to Youtube for the review, I miss the synopsis here at the site.
I guess I will add my name in the Hat of whom needs coffees. I'll make a note to SKYMTL to edit that.
