Cooler Master HAF XB Mid-Tower Chassis Review

We installed the Seasonic Platinum 1000W Fully Modular power supply by first screwing the mounting fascia into place and then sliding it to the bay. It is secured with four thumbscrews.

Installing a 3.5″ drive is easy. Clip the hard disk drive into one of the X-Dock trays, slide it into the bay and lock it in place.

Installing a 2.5″ drive is an even simpler affair, just push the two slides in place on either side and then slide it into the bay.

We then installed the motherboard with an Akasa Venom Voodoo CPU Cooler straight onto the Motherboard tray. There is plenty of space, and this approach gives really easy access to all of the screw mounts.

You then just slide the tray into place within the chassis. There is plenty of space on all sides to route cables.

Installing a graphics card is very easy. Simply unscrew a PCI Expansion slot and push the card in place and screw it tight with a thumbscrew.

After connecting everything up we were very impressed with how tidy the Chassis looks. This is because all of the messy SATA and Molex connectors are hidden behind the motherboard tray. This should be very good for airflow too.
