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.

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.

Despite our initial raised eyebrow, Cooler Master can be proud of its the HAF XB. It features a unique design that works well in a variety of environments. Use it as a bench table for extreme cooling, as a free-flowing enclosure surrounding hot, high-end...

Today for review I have a case or chassis from Cooler Master called the HAF XB. This is a smaller style case, what might be called a lanbox but it's not just for gaming of course as you can use it for anything. What makes the HAF XB really special is the...

Before continuing with our final weigh-in on the HAF XB, we would like to take this opportunity to give our friends at Cooler Master a hearty “Thank You” for giving us the opportunity and pleasure of reviewing the HAF XB mid tower case. Normally, mid...

While many custom PC builders will look at the motherboard, processor or GPU as the most important thing in their build, the lowly computer cases gets overlooked far too often. Hell, you can use a pizza box if you really want to. But cutting corners with...

But if you're a serial system tweaker - with your PC regularly sat missing its side-panel or just regularly in pieces on your carpet - then this could well be the chassis for you.

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 own. The...

The HAF (or high airflow) series of cases from venerable case-maker Cooler Master have always appealed. They combine a certain rugged and aggressive charm, the kind of design that looks semi-military and often appeals to gamers and those who want fast,...

The Cooler Master HAF XB has been one of the more interesting cases that I have seen of late and proves at least one manufacturer is thinking outside of the box. For my part I have enjoyed working with the HAF XB, it came well packaged with a good...

The Cooler Master HAF XB LAN Box is the latest product in the HAF series of cases. It is billed as both a LAN box and a test bench. At first I wasn't quite sure what to think of it, but after reviewing this case I think Cooler Master has a solid product...

There are some cool aspects that make the Cooler Master HAF XB well worth the average price of $99. One of which is that it’s really neat change from the typical enclosures on the market and it’s different enough from the BitFenix Prodigy that it’s...

I really think Cooler Master is onto something here with this design. The layout isn't really anything new when you considering last test bench designs. What makes it unique is that it is a real case. This means you have easy access to swapping out...

The Cooler Master HAF XB Mid-Tower chassis is part of the ‘High Air Flow’ range of cases, but it is crafted into a new and special form factor. Is this a case you need to be shortlisting for a new system build?The Cooler Master HAF XB is...

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.

I'm a tinkerer, I can't help it. I love digging around in the innards of my PC to see how it ticks, or, more often, why it isn't ticking. Cooler Master's chassis design bods are obviously tinkerers too, because they've just announced the new HAF XB...

If you've read the full review or even just skimmed through it you'll know by now that we're quite taken with the HAF XB. Not a standard affair by any means, and indicative of Cooler Masters design flair that they feel confident enough to stir the pot...

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