4 out of 5 eggsGreat case! Lots of room

This review is from: Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: 1) Case is about the size of a dorm microwave. It has room for a full ATX board.
2) Plenty of tie-downs and routing holes for cable management. The motherboard tray sits on rails with about a 1" (2.5cm) gap to the side panel (both sides are like this).
3) Both side panels and top panel and front bezel are removable. This makes building, cable routing, and troubleshooting so easy.
4) Tons of thumb screws! They come factory tightened, but once you loosen with phillips screwdriver, they're great. I only had one thumbscrew that wouldn't go back in (out of 6 on the panels, 4 on the mobo tray, and 7 or 8 on the PCI slots).

Cons: 1) Case is about the size (and shape) of a dorm microwave. Huge footprint. Definitely an under-desk placement for me.
2) High airflow means lots of dust and animal hair (if you have them). There's only one actual air filter on the case, and it's directly under the PSU mount. no filters on the sides or top, and fine (but permanent) mesh on the front bezel and hotswap bays.

Other Thoughts: 2 years into using this case and i still love it. i've upgraded my gpu, changed out hard drives, fans, lighting, and cpu watercooler. my cat loves this case, she sits on top (top fan blows out, so heat + huge flat spot = cat spot). it does get a bit dusty inside, but the top is super easy to get into to clean it all out. when i retire this case (eventually) this box will be for network storage i think.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

This review is from: Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: Love this case, probably best case I have ever owned for decades

Cons: nice to see a few more 5.25 bays or 3.5 bay that could be accessed from outside to allow hot swap for more drivers if need be or controllers ect....

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome looking case!

This review is from: Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: -Lots of room
-looks awesome
-lots of space for fans (I run all 6 slots)
-The easy install / swap locks on the 5.25" bays are SUPER easy to use.
-Although other say the hot swap bay kills their drives, i have the 2 80mm exhaust fans on the bottom level and my HDD never goes above 25C, so I'm not sure what they are doing wrong, but this case is fine for HDD in the hot swap bays.
-Removable motherboard tray is great and every case should start doing it

Cons: - The hot swap bays are very close to the power supply, so if you are like me and went all the way to a 7.1" PSU, the cords are VERY close to the drive bays which isn't fun to deal with. It does work, just annoying to install.
-The manual isn't very good, but it's a case, so you can figure it out pretty easily without it.

5 out of 5 eggsI love this case

This review is from: Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: Cools off my computer very well when I'm running it hot.

Cons: It's kinda big so you'll need to find a good space for it.

5 out of 5 eggsIncredible horizontal case option

This review is from: Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: -Horizontal orientation eliminates gpu sag
-Immense airflow keeps cpu/ram/chipset cool
-Slide-off panels are sturdy, but easy to take off, making building/tweaking very easy. They don't rattle around at all.
-Standard rack-space width, if you're into that.

Cons: -Not great airflow on gpu side (I'm running a gtx780, so it might just be that)
-Feeding power/sata cables from the bottom is a little annoying
-Additional handles on the bottom would make a little more sense

Other Thoughts: -Personally, I can't get a very pleasing cable management setup.
-Power lights are very bright. Buttons are recessed enough to prevent anything accidental (especially the reset switch)
-Another model of this case includes internal mounts for additional 3.5" drives, which makes more sense than running four 2.5" drives

3 out of 5 eggsGood In Theory

This review is from: Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: Solid: The case is very sturdy
Air Flow: Many fan options, and a lot of vents
Horizontal Motherboard: All components are resting on the motherboard, not hanging off it.
Fits Huge Cooler: I was able to fit the largest Noctua CPU cooler. (Although is was too tall to allow the top fan to be installed)

Cons: Hot swap bays: seem to work, but they feel weak.
Design: The motherboard tray prevents access to EVERYTHING else. All connections must be unhooked, and the tray removed to be able to access the power supply and all the drive bays. The internal drive bays must be removed to install the rear fans.

Other Thoughts: This is a huge case. It takes up the same space as a double-wide tower, but everything inside is cramped and congested. I spent more time trying to squeeze my fingers into tight spaces than on any other builds I have done. The thought of adding another DVD drive daunts me. To access the power supply and the back of the bays requires unhooking and removing the motherboard. Any other case this would be a 30 second job.
Having a horizontal motherboard appeals to me, but the motherboard is the only thing easily accessed. Stick to the traditional case design.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case ... Highly Recommended To Everyone!

This review is from: Cooler Master HAF XB EVO - High Air Flow Test Bench and LAN Box Desktop Computer Case with ATX Motherboard Support

Pros: Great design and tons of room inside to house all your goodies. I love how the motherboard mounts horizontally so I can work on it much easier, no turning it on it's side. With the CPU fan pointing towards the top of the case it lets the hot air easily escape. You can completely remove the top and side panels if you want and use it as a test bench.

Cons: Only issue I had was I could never get the hot swap bays to work. I used several different SATA cables and power connectors to no avail. I wound up just removing that controller board and I just plugged those drives in the hot swaps bays in just like normal. No biggie, I wouldn't be hot swapping anyways.

Other Thoughts: I build computers on the side and would love to use this case for them as it is so easy to work on but most customers want small little cases, which this is the opposite of. Fantastic case and a must buy!
