Cooler Master Ships HAF XB LAN Box

The portable product packs in ATX motherboard support, cooling, and more. 

Cooler Master is at it again, delivering another nifty case for your PC-building pleasure. The HAF XB is a LAN box that packs in full ATX motherboard support, modular features, portability, and cooling options.

Inside, the HAF XB can support up to two 120mm fans in the front, a 200mm fan in the top, and both a 120mm and two 80mm fans in the rear. There are also a ton of little niceties, such steel reinforced side handles for travel and strategically placed cable tie areas to keep clutter to a minimum and maximize the wow factor.

Built with enthusiasts and extreme overclockers in mind, the HAF XB can easily go from the LAN box to the test bench. It has a removable motherboard tray design to make swapping out hardware simple. You can even take the outer shell off, to make all of that tweaking a little easier.

Other features include seven expansion slots for graphics cards, space for up to six 2.5-inch drives, and dual X-Dock slots for mounting hot-swappable 3.5- or 2.5-inch drives. Last, but certainly not least, a front I/O panel delivers easy access to two USB 3.0 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and an audio in/out jack.

Cooler Master is selling the HAF XB now. It's currently available through a variety of retailers, such as Amazon, for $99.99.
