To wrap things up, the Cooler Master HAF XB Case has long-lasting aesthetic appeal. Its sleek black finish is solid and impressive. The mesh grills on its exterior really give this case the air-flow it needs, while providing a great look at the same time. The exterior’s removable panels make it easy to work with, and the tool-less design was a no brainier when it came to breaking down the case. The front X-dock is an excellent addition for ease of use, and of course, the USB 3.0 and audio ports on the front of the chassis add to that list of useful add-ons for this case.
The interior of this case breaks down with ease thanks to its tool-less design, and the removable motherboard tray gives the HAF XB that extra convenience factor that we haven’t seen with other cases. The versatility of this case really makes it stand out from the crowd. Cable management is managed with ease at the lower section of the case, and the ability to incorporate water cooling is a great plus since it can support a 240mm rad up front. Airflow is great with multiple areas of the chassis ventilated and will keep your components cool.
Our overall impression of the HAF XB is that it really stands tall as a versatile and uncompromising achievement in design effectiveness. For those looking for a chassis with a multitude of uses, then you don’t have to look any further, as the Cooler Master HAF XB is perfect. The test bench feature is amazing for those who are consistently changing hardware.
The Cooler Master HAF XB chassis easily earned out Editors Choice Award for its great design and versatility as a mutli purpose chassis. You can find this case at MSRP for $99.99 and it will be available to the public on November 13th, 2012. At $99.99 this is an amazing value!
