Cooler Master HAF X Case Review -

"Cooler Master has taken the wraps off of its flagship high-air-flow chassis, the HAF X.

Arriving as a bigger brother to the existing HAF 932 and HAF 922, the new addition to the family boasts higher performance and enough room to house most of today's high-end components.

Measuring 230mm x 550mm x 599mm and weighing 14.35kg, the HAF X is comfortably bigger than its predecessors and supports a choice of M-ATX, ATX or E-ATX motherboards - though, there's sadly no official support for XL-ATX boards such as GIGABYTE's UD9.

There's plenty of room for cooling and graphics, however. HAF X features a 230mm red LED front intake, dual 200mm top exhausts and a rear 140mm fan, too. There's room for another 200mm fan to be added to the side panel, and the water cooling crowd will find space for a radiator to be mounted up top.

Extra-long graphics cards aren't a problem - there's room for AMD's ATI Radeon HD 5970 - and nine expansion slots leave plenty of room for multi-GPU configurations.

Five 3.5in drive bays and six 5.25in drive bays (two of which convert to 2.5in for your SSDs) make up the storage arrangement, and HAF X provides external easy-swap access to all installed 3.5in hard disks.

Rounding off the upgrades is a "refined cable management system", an improved tool-free design and the addition of two USB 3.0 ports to the top I/O panel.

Sounds rather nice, and Cooler Master tells us the HAF X will be available soon priced at an MSRP of 150. That's roughly 40 more than the HAF 932."

It would so much cooler without the indented pattern on the front left and right.

mmmm...liking it.
One thing that bugs me with my current case, I can't install any dual-slot cards in my bottom PCIe slot because it's blocked by the PSU. This one looks like it won't have that problem

Also, I like it that they've included built-in support for SSD drives. Right now mine is just sitting in one of the usual 3.5" bays

It's certainly better looking than the old HAF but still not exactly pretty.
