Specifications and Features

HAF XB

The Cooler Master HAF XB takes the famous High Air Flow series to a revolutionary new form factor with extreme cooling performance. The removable horizontal mainboard tray and large mesh top and front panels with two 120mm front fans create a powerful front to back airflow. Despite its compact rugged design, there is plenty of space for even the tallest high performance tower heatsinks, thick watercooling radiators and up to 3 of the longest high end graphics cards. Within seconds the side panels with their rigid carry handles and the top mesh panel can be removed, transforming the HAF XB into a Test bench with direct access to the hardware. The front panel features two USB 3.0 super speed ports as well as 2 SSD compatible X-dock slots for lightning fast data transfers.

Direct front to back airflow over CPU and mainboard for extreme cooling performance.
Supports 240mm radiators with extra clearance for thick performance radiators or push-pull fan configurations.
Supports tower CPU coolers with a height of up to 180mm and up to 334mm long high end graphics cards.
Motherboard tray can be removed to install, remove or swap components.
The first case that quickly and easily transforms into a Testbench – Ideal for enthusiasts and overclockers.
Dual USB 3.0 SuperSpeed ports and X-Dock slots at the front panel for lightning fast plug-n-play I/O.
Rigid carry handles on the side panels.
