    Default Cooler Master HAF XB Lan Box

    Needed a case that could easily be carried up and down stairs. Also had to be ATX compatible. Chose the Cooler Master HAF (High Air Flow) XB Lan Box and did a brand new scratch build inside. Very happy with the results.

    Although the specs say the PSU length is limited to 180mm, I was able to readily fit a 190mm Seasonic X-1250. The only irksome thing is that if you use a tall heatsink air cooler (e.g. a Prolimatech Megahalems Black Series) for the cpu, you probably can't use an optional 200mm fan in the meshed top ... not enough room. A 200mm fan no more than 20mm thick would work for me, but can't find any that thin. Perhaps I should swap in an all-in-one water cooler instead and then also add a top fan. But the temps are cool enough that I may not. Has good solid handle grips on the sides, nicely luggable.

    Here are the piece-parts of the build: i7 3930K, ASUS Rampage IV Formula, 16GB Corsair Vengeance, AMD 6990, Samsung 840 Pro 256GB, Cooler Master HAF XB, Seasonic X-1250, Prolimatech Megahalems Black Series with dual push/pull fans, various NoiseBlocker e-Loop fans, Sony Optiarc High Speed SATA DVD RW Burner Drive.
    Alternate System: i7 3930K @ 4.6GHz, ASUS Rampage IV Formula, 16GB Corsair Vengeance, AMD 6990, Samsung 840 Pro 256GB, Cooler Master HAF XB, Seasonic X-1250, various NoiseBlocker e-Loop fans.
