The HAF XB mid tower case is the newest member of the Cooler Master HAF line of cases. Touted as a LAN box, this cube-shaped case has both looks and features that appeal to any enthusiasts. We decided to put the HAF XB on our test bench to validate these claims. At a base price of $99.99, the HAF XB is a bargain for the features you are getting.

Cooler Master designed the HAF XB with a scratch-resistance, flat-black colored coating applied to all surfaces. Both side panels have integrated hand-holds for easy lifting and transport to your event and the front and top panels contain non-impeding mesh grills allowing for optimal airflow across your vital system components. Integrated into the case's front panel are power and reset buttons, power indicator LEDs, audio input and output port, USB 3.0 device ports, two 5.25" device bays, and two hot-swappable hard drive bays.

While it might not look it at first glance the $100 Cooler Master HAF XB can fit a full ATX board inside its squat interior.  The case actually measures 17.4" x 13" 16.7", with a removable motherboard tray to help you install your components in what might otherwise be a difficult case to work with.  It comes with a pair of fans and you can add more to ensure air cooling, Legit Reviews were glad to see that there is also enough space for a radiator for those preferring water cooling.  Installation can almost completely be done without tools and the inclusion of 2.5" bays will make SSD users smile.  Check out the full review.
