    • Three panels of the case can be removed
    • Removable motherboard tray
    • Two hard drive hot-swap bay with well-engineered trays

    • Can fit 120 or 240 mm radiators

    Minus

    • Not as accessible as pure test benches
    • 2.5" bays hard/nearly impossible to fill
    • No USB 2.0 - may be of interest for testers
    • Screw-less system does not work that well for ODDs
    • No dust filter on some intake fan locations
    • Rear motherboard area recessed
    • No 140 or 280 radiator support
    • No external 3.5" bay
    • No internal 3.5" bays

    Conclusion
    The Cooler Master HAF XB clocks in at a good price right out of the gates - even as a traditional chassis and not a test bench. The fact that it is also intended as a bench means that Cooler Master aimed to combine the best of both worlds, and they have done so quite well, I might add! On top of that, you may carry the system around easily thanks to the handles - while its internals are still protected. Try doing that with a Dimastech unit. Granted, traditional, completely open benches will remain the choice for hardcore enthusiasts and tinkerers, but the HAF XB pretty much finds the golden middle and offers a very good set of features on top of a great implementation. The two hot-swap bays and its tool-less assembly and radiator support are the perfect feature set for this case. I only miss USB 2.0 connectivity and a real 3.5 inch bay with 140 or 280 mm radiator support. Luckily, all of these points - besides large rad support, which is quite niche anyways - can be remedied. A 5.25" card reader with USB 2.0 ports can be had on the cheap and will fit nicely into the second drive bay. Having to buy such an extra hurts even less considering that the HAF XB clocks in at 50 Euro less than pure, open bench tables of this type.

    Conclusion
    The Cooler Master HAF XB will certainly please the user who is looking for a non-conventional looking, yet practical, computer case. This case is perfect for overclockers and tweakers who need to open the computer quite often, as the motherboard is located at the top half of the case, and you have access to the motherboard and components that are attached to it by simply removing the top panel.Strong PointsExcellent cost/benefit ratioUnique design that will appeal to gamers and overclockersMeshed covers with air filters on the 5.25” baysAir filter for the front and power supply fansAnti-vibration rings for 3.5” hard drivesTwo hot-swap bays supporting both 3.5” and 2.5” devicesRemovable motherboard trayA huge hole in the motherboard tray for accessing the backplate of the CPU coolerClips for fastening cables using cable tiesWeak PointsNo air filters on the venting holes of the side panels
