    I'm very interested in buying this case... do you think it will fit a :
    - corsair ax1200 psu
    - radeon 6990 gpu
    - corsair h100 wc unit (is push-pull config possible in that case ? or just pull or push ?)

    thanks in advance.

    Hello.
    I think there is a little mistake in the text:
    "the motherboard is placed vertically within the chassis with room for drives below it"
    "The motherboard is, as mentioned before, installed vertically"

    The unusual in this case is the position of the motherboard, which is horizontally.

    I have one of this ordered, but it's out of stock for the moment. I need to wait for it until the end of January.

    meh, I had higher hopes, but just another CM case imo, looks cheap and I am sure it is, bases on price and plastic.

    Aye, and people are fitting 140 and 280mm's radiators into the HAF XB as well.

    PSU will fit fine, may be worth plugging in all cables needed and loosely routing them prior to sliding PSU into place. The hot swap PCB makes plugging cables in to an already installed PSU a bit of a challenge.

    I think that is meant to read "No external 2.5" bay"

    As for the case I think it is a pretty good step toward some thing different that works but it does need a revision and few issues fixed as I see 4x 2.5" pointless in a "LAN PC" as they advertise it is,
    Its a budget entry level gaming case that can take 4 SSD's, Really? there is $1000 on SSD's. pointless as a desktop. Get more 3.5" bays that can accommodate 2.5" bays like every other CM case. other than that I like the case and could happily put one on my desk.
