LAN box and test bench combo case


Cooler Master has announced a new and rather interesting case that combines the LAN box form factor in order to create a case that can double as a test bench. The HAF XB, as Cooler Master decided to call it, supports full ATX motherboards, provides excellent cooling coupled with portability and modular features.

The HAF XB is a rather strange part of the HAF lineup, but considering that it has quite an impressive cooling features including two 120mm front, 200mm top and 120mm and two 80mm fans in the rear, it more than justifies the High Air Flow (HAF) name. The HAF XB also comes with steel reinforced handles on the side panels that are a must if you are talking about LAN Box type case.

As noted, the HAF XB also doubles as a test bench and features removable motherboard tray. The spec list includes seven expansion slots, enough space for multiple graphics card setups, large HDD/SSD tray with support for up to six 2.5-inch drives with dual X-Dock hot-swap slots, large and featured packed front I/O panel with two USB 3.0 ports, and a bunch of other features that are quite unique to the case industry.

Unfortunately, the price hasn't been announced as it will vary by region, but a quick check at Newegg.com reveals that it is sold in the USA for US $99.99.
