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.

Briony goes POSTAL – and cuts up GAMING CHAIRS!

Briony has reviewed a lot of gaming chairs in her time with KitGuru and she has always wanted to see what was inside them. She wanted to cut up her OWN 18 month old Noblechair - and we asked Noblechairs if they would like to come along when we cut the hell out of it with a stanley knife. They said 'sure no problem' we will bring you a new one too and watch you cut it up. We also bought a no name 'cheap' gaming chair from Amazon - just to see if there was any difference at all. Is it all a CON?
