The Cooler Master HAF XB I/O panel has a large rectangular power button followed by the smaller rectangular reset button, two audio jacks and a pair of USB 3.0 ports. Inside is a large amount of room under the motherboard tray considering the HAF XB only accommodates two 5.25" drives, two 3.5" drives and four 2.5" drives.
Removable motherboard tray.
Cube-like figure, orientation make for an awesome test bed.
Very good price.
Well shuffled interior.
Can hold four additional 2.5" and two 5.25" drives
Can fit 120 or 240 mm radiators.
Two 120 mm fans, well-balanced in terms of noise/air flow.
Plenty of zip ties and routing possibilities for cables.
PSU dust filter.
Big and bulky.
Only two 3.5" bays.
Heat management not its strongest suit.
No dust filter on some intake fan locations.
No 140 or 280 radiator support.

That's perhaps the best compliment I can offer and it serves as a testament to the HAF XB's all-around quality. We're glad to see Cooler Master's HAF series knock another one out of the park.

The latest addition to Cooler Master's HAF range is a weird ol' beast, but we can't help but have a soft spot for its techie aspirations. There is no real form factor that the HAF XB fits in with - indeed, it almost seems to have created its...

Overall though this is a very sturdy build that is easy to carry around with it's two carry-handles. And despite it's size it simply is a well through through product.

The original Cooler Master Lab Test Bench was no good, but this Cooler Master HAF XB does pretty much everything right - well done.

I really like what I found in the HAF XB. As a standalone chassis with handles on the side for added portability for LAN events, the HAF XB offers everything one expects in a full tower chassis. Then you add in the fact that I can also run this withou...

This case is perfect for overclockers and tweakers who need to open the computer quite often, as the motherboard is located at the top half of the case, and you have access to the motherboard and components that are attached to it by simply removing the top panel.
