Cooler Master HAF XB Mid-Tower Chassis Review

Rating: 9.0.

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 eyecatching. At 330 mm it is just a bit taller than the length of a ruler but can cope with all standard sized motherboards and components. The HAF XB should also offer great thermal performance in both its Mid-Tower Chassis set-up and the Test Bench set-up – great for enthusiasts and overclockers.

    I admire Cooler Master for releasing something like this, but the audience is very limited IMO. wont be a big seller.
