  1. I would like to know what the maximum motherboard size for the HAF XB II Evo Case is. I know that the Form Factor is ATX...I would like to know the maximum dimensions in inches. Thanks for any help!
  2. I've just purchased an HAF XB which I'm building as a general purpose PC, optimized for photo and video editing. (I was drawn to the MB-on-top, full-ATX layout.) I haven't built a PC in a dozen years and, until now, I was unfamiliar w/ hot-swapping - I thought that was what happened at key parties. (Har!) So I assumed, from the web photos, that the openings were 3.5", where I could install, e.g., a memory card reader or... IDK, a floppy drive? What else is 3.5"? It turns out those front openings are 4.75" - an odd size. Consequently, I bought a 5.75" card reader, which takes up a slot where I'd rather have a second optical drive or I/O panel for audio production. I've got two 3.5" HDD inside (2TB, mirrored) and a 2.5" SSD mounted to the memory card reader chassis, and I don't need a hot-swap drive. (Or do I? Please tell!) I could remove the hot-swap cage, perhaps find a 3.5" cage for other I/O possibilities, but I doubt the openings would line up correctly, or even be the correct height. I'm struggling to come up with another use for the openings and that lower-right corner of the case. I've even thought about buying a full tower case instead, for the additional I/O possibilities, and building a HTPC, which I don't need but I've probably got enough old parts laying around to build, just to use the XB case, which is awesome, and (at 17") is a perfect width for an A/V cabinet. Or just wait it out - perhaps I'll want another two HDDs someday. Any other ideas?
