Default New Case

Okay I was stupid and trusted reviews on Newegg for a new case that I just ordered so I'm going to post the link on here and ask for your guy's opinions. Hopefully I didn't make a terrible mistake :/ - COOLER MASTER HAF X RC-942-KKN1 Black Steel/ Plastic ATX Full Tower Computer Case

You won't go wrong with any HAF case, it's a solid gaming case.

What are you worried about on the case?

The HAF X is a great case for cable management and cooling, especially over the video card.
Only downside I could say about it is that its huge, but if you have the room for it you made a great choice.

Any HAF case is god. Let him call you.

Yeah, pretty much what they said above. Owner of a 922, and I'm not turning back.

Ahh I just caught something that I should've checked with earlier, my CPU power cable on my power supply isn't very long and since the socket for the power cable is near the top of the board and the PSU mounts at the bottom, will it reach?! - OCZ ModXStream Pro 700W Modular High Performance Power Supply compatible with Intel Sandybridge Core i3 i5 i7 and AMD Phenom
That's my current PSU and the previously mentioned HAF X is the new case on the way.
