Cooler Master HAF XB Review Comment Thread
 
It may be dubbed a LAN Box but Cooler Master's new HAF XB can still be considered a fully functioning ATX sized enclosure. It uses a number of innovative design features in order to cram an impressive amount of hardware into a constrained space while still having room for water cooling options.

I actually don't mind that case, but I feel the cube layout is better with smaller form factors (matx and itx). I'd be interested in a Haf XP itx edition for a mini build

The timing is impeccable. I've been desiring a new case. I've been thinking I want a BIG horizontal case (but not a true cube). It looks like there MAY be room to mod and fit 6 x 3.5" hdd's in place of the 4 x 2.5 (I have an old array for now)

^wouldn't the Fractal design Node 605 be a better fit for you?

I think that it looks really quite nice actually, especially for smaller, tighter areas.

I love the HAF series... I had a 932, 922... and looks like this will be my next case!

I've gotta admit, I love Coolermaster and there constant strive to do something different. This is really an interesting case and something that I would for certain try in the future.

Interesting case. The internal layout is indeed interesting but I think the outside is FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUgly. But that is all down to personal preference.

You know the looks of the HAF XB really start to grow on you. If you try to imagine this case but with Corsair Obsidian exterior design (Clean corners & simple) then it might not work as it would just be a dull black cube. :D

It definitely would be a boring dull black cube in that event. I am simply just not a fan of any CM case other then the boss cosmos II.
