On the Cooler Master HAF XM, the power supply is installed at the bottom of the case.

The product comes with a 140 mm fan installed on its rear panel. It also supports a 120 mm fan, allowing you to install a radiator for liquid cooling solutions based on either a 120 mm or a 140 mm radiator.

This case has eight expansion slots with vented slot covers. A ninth slot placed above the expansion slots allows you to install a blower or an I/O bracket containing communication ports, for example.

There are three holes with rubber covers for hoses of liquid cooling solutions, two measuring 0.8” (21 mm) in diameter and one measuring 0.7” (18 mm) in diameter.
