I would like to thank Cooler Master
for providing the review sample.
Cooler Master has tried offering a test bench in the past, but it was limiting and too expensive. The Cooler Master HAF XB is actually a full chassis arranged in the same format as most test benches. The motherboard rests atop, while drives and power supply go into a compartment below. By adding an outer shell, Cooler Master has managed to create a case that can be both testing station and chassis.
