Cooler Master, an industry leading chassis, thermal solution, peripheral, and accessory manufacturer today unveils the LAN box that takes the form to a whole new height, HAF XB. Packing full ATX motherboard support, modular features, portability, and excellent cooling, HAF XB comes in as the LAN box to beat.

Innovative Design

HAF XB takes an innovative diversion from the form factor of its High Air Flow (HAF) brethren. It comes in a LAN box form that pushes the boundaries of size for this category. Ensuring that it continues the tradition of its namesake, HAF XB supports up to two 120mm fans in the front, a large 200mm in the top, and a 120mm and two 80mm fans in the rear. Strategically placed cable tie areas occupy cable routing zones to assist in keeping cable clutter to a minimum and provide a clean look with minimal effort. Steel reinforced side panel handles make traveling between LANs and other gaming destinations a far less stressful venture.
