Pros: This is our third CM case and second HAF XB. The first houses a year old gaming rig to the left of my desk(at desktop level) and the newer EVO is atop a low cherry file cabinet, again at desktop level, to my right. The new case encloses a medium duty folding build. Including the stock fans, there are a total of seven within the case-two mounted on the Phanteks CPU cooler, two to cool the harddrive, and one mounted in the top rear position-and all run very quietly. Also, the case will accept an E-ATX motherboard as the gaming build has an ASUS MVF. Other advantages are having the motherboard in the horizontal plane and the hardware on it in the vertical;
the motherboard tray is removable which makes building fairly simple; the case has handles.
Other Thoughts: There are no dust filters other than the mesh in the front panel but it stops a lot of intrusion. I bought window air conditioner filter material at the local hardware store, cut it to fit the side panels, unscrewed the handles, and pinned the new filter between the handle and case when I reinstalled the handles and now the material hangs like a curtain. Also cut a piece to cover the mesh in the top panel. It was simply laid there with a few small mementos to hold it in place. Thankfully, we don't have a lot of dust in the home office. BTW, to satisfy the curious, my better half has her rig in a Storm Trooper. Thanks again, CM!READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: Mounted this to an i3-4340 Haswell with no problem. Keeps the proc at 42-47C under 100% load while folding. Exceptionally quiet!
