Hope i get the time tomorrow to ask my question(s)
I love my HAF XB, but it's not quite perfect. Do you have any plans for any further horizontal cases like it, but with more drive bays, hot swap 2.5" bays, or an easier to work with lower level?
Thanks for the kind words on Hyper 212+. Cooler Master has constantly been developing new fans, even though we have not been releasing new ones to the retail market so frequently. Take the new Jetflo 120 for example. We've taken the POM (Polyoxymethylene) material known in other formulations as Delrin™ and built a fan bearing out of it. With a tested 95 CFM at 2200 RPM, we still have a useful life of 160K hours. This is 4 times the standard lifetime of most fans out there and should ensure your cooling for many years to come.
For more information on Jetflo 120: http://www.coolermaster.com/product/Detail/cooling/case-fan/jetflo-120.html
When I designed the HAF XB I had two goals, building an awsome LANbox and building an excellent test bench. Cooler Master never expected thousands of fans would be using the HAF XB to install all their components from their full tower systems and never leaving the house. In hindsight the amount of 2.5" and 3.5" HDD bays was always correct for either LANboxes or test benches, but was not enough for most people's main system.
HAF Xb is the best mass production horizontal chassis available. We have many new products planned for this segment in 2014.
