Cooler Master HAF XB Lan Box and Test Bench Case ReviewTue, Nov 13, 2012 - 12:00 AM
The RC-902XB-KKN1 HAF XB
The HAF XB is a prime example of yet another chassis that redefines our computing experiences from Cooler Master. The best description I can give the HAF XB is that the engineers over at Cooler Master took an old 1990’s style of desktop computer chassis, pumped it full of adrenalin, then hooked it up large power cables, and then threw the switch and cackled “It’s Alive, It’s Alive”.
The HAF XB is a combination of three very different chassis designs incorporated into one seamless and very functional chassis that gives us the portability of being able to move from one LAN party to the next effortlessly, a low profile and somewhat small footprint, while also expanding our computing experiences to entirely new levels. And with games like Call of Duty Black Ops 2, and Assassins Creed III, and other big name game titles hitting the shelves soon, we can use all of the help we can get to keep our computers cool, and extremely portable. That way the only thing we have to worry about is fragging enemies in our games, both online and off.

As we give the specifications of the HAF XB chassis a quick look through, we get an idea that this particular chassis is not a traditional mid-tower chassis; in fact, this chassis is nothing like we have seen in a long time in large type of chassis designs. That the HAF XB is a low profile square type of chassis. The HAF XB is classified as a mid-tower type of chassis, and with that we are giving the full capabilities of using any motherboard type and size from a Micro-ATX to the larger full ATX motherboards. And that this chassis is more than capable of handling some of the largest video cards on the market with considerable ease. We can install/use up to five fans these include, one 200/230mm fan (top), two 120mm front intake fans (Included) with options of installing two 140mm front intake fans, two 80mm rear lower exhaust fans, and finally one 120mm rear exhaust fan.
