I'm Building New Computer using the HAF-XB Case but i'm very confused about the best air flow. I Will be using a NZXT Kraken x60 on the front with two 140mm prolimatech alluminium vortex, 1 noctua 120mm NF-P12 at the back, 2 noctua NF-R8 80mm on bottom and 1 bitfenix spectre pro 200mm on top but i don't know if i should go back to front, front to back or front and back to top air flow. very confused.

i would do

2 x 140mm front as intake

1 x 120mm rear as intake

200mm top as exhaust

not sure you need 2 80mm on bottom but if so those as intake

So take it all out the Top. Thats what i was thinking. sounds good. The case has Two 80mm slots on bottom so might as well put them in

The HAF XB is a testbench/case the corsair is a midtower with the psu and HDD bays removed from the traditional spots and slapped on the side making it a wider than taller case, Looks nice but nothing like the HAF XB which has hot swap bays, removable motherboard tray and is easy to carry (easier than a traditional case) as it has handles :D 

(still i do like the look of the case above, but i don't like optical drives on their sides)
