Around £80 in the uk right now, coupled with a h100i cpu cooler would suit me just fine.

Interesting case, not enough HDD space for me though XD.

Thanks for this review, Hilbert.

I going for a new build soon. I was already looking at this case. It's either this one or the XM. I would prefer the XB, but I want a fan controller and an optical drive in the 5.25" bays. That leaves 2 HDDs. I already have two and maybe I want a third some day. Chances are that by that time SSD prices are still not down enough to buy a second one. The XM also has more cooling options in case I want Crossfire. So, the XM looks more realistic for me, but I sure like the XB's concept. I'm still not decided, though.

There are many typos in this review. BUT, this is the case I have had an eye on for a month now. Not all metal like my Stacker , but I would love to have my pc off the ground and on the desk next to me.


Good review none the less.

Looks nice. Appears to be well laid out. Seems that Coolermaster didn't take the route of sacrificing cooling performance for aesthetics like so many others are doing these days.
