MasterFan MF200R does not fit 200mm holes

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

 So I am trying to go all rgb and i recently purchased a MasterFan MF200R which is a 200mm case fan. I am trying to fit it to a Cooler Master Haf XB EVO case. 

The top of the case had a 200mm blue led Cooler Master fan already there. When trying to replace it, the holes are completely different. 

 

Any ideas why? Makes no sense especially since everything is the same brand.

 

Thanks!

-Mike

Hi, I just got the HAF XB EVO and also purchased the megaflow 200 blue LED fan for the top.  Like many other posts on here, the holes don't line up on the top of the case.  Its almost like you designed them for a completely different fan.  The holes indicate that a fan with a rectangular frame be placed there instead of one that has a square frame.

Yeah.  Id also like to know who the idiot was who thought this was a good idea?  Im about to return everything labeled CoolerMaster and trade it all in for Corsair...  Never had an issue like this with the dozens of cases and case fans Ive pourchased from them through the years...

Is there any resolution? It looks like its been 4 months since first reported.

No response from HQ team yet? Its been nearly a year and I've purchased this fan only to find it doesnt mount on my Storm Sniper.

Does anyone know of any 200mm RGB fans that actually fit?
 

Cheers

Signed up for same reason. Apparently it's only compatible with their Megaflow 200 fan - NOTHING in the manual, marketing material, website, or knowledge base states this. And then a CM rep on Amazon has the gall to reply to a bad review (not mine, but for a CM fan not fitting their case) with this:

The only 200mm fan that will fit up there in a HAF XB EVO is the MegaFlow 200mm fan. It wouldn't be the best idea to go on the assumption that a fan from the same manufacturer will fit into every case by the said manufacturer. Different cases and products have different specs. This happens to be one of them.

 

Sometimes companies make indefensible decisions. This happens to be one of them.
