Installation

Overview

   
 
Thanks to the removable motherboard tray and to the ability to remove almost all the panels the assemly with the Cooler Master HAF XB Evo is very simple and intuitive. As mentioned, the bottom houses the power supply and storage devices. The power supply has its own seat with a generous washable dust filter. For our test we used a 550W modular power supply but HAF XB Evo also allows the installation of large power supplies. Once the motherboard tray is placed, wiring the system is very simple and it is possible to obtain a clean setup due the cutholes and grommets on the chassis. Like the previous version, the HAF XB Evo is compatible with ATX, mATX and mini-ITX motherboards. In the HAF XB Evo there are only seven PCI slots and not eight, which means that not possible to install four dual-slot graphics cards for a 4-way SLI/Quad CrossFire configurations. Since this is a case for benchmarking and also LAN party, there are several possibilities that someone wants to use four dual slot cards.
