The Cooler Master HAF XB is a very square case, but is not that high. It certainly isn’t going to win any awards for its looks, but we expect it to be very functional.
The front features: An On/Off button, a reset button, headphone and microphone sockets, as well as 2 x USB 3.0 ports.
On the right-hand side are two ‘X-Dock’ bays which can fit either 3.5″ or 2.5″ HDD’s, allowing for really easy installation and access to the drives.
The back of the chassis features the standard 1 x 120mm fan slot, but also features 2 x 80 mm fan spaces – neither of which are included. There are also seven PCI expansion slots, and a power supply bay that does stick out a few inches.
Both sides of the chassis feature very sturdy carry handles, which is great if you plan on moving this chassis around regularly.
The top of the chassis has space to fit a 200mm fan if you need to improve the thermal performance.
The bottom of the chassis features an air intake vent for the power supply. This has a removable dust filter as well as more air intake vents on either side.
