Joe, when PPM posts negative comments about CM computer cases, take what PPM says with a grain of salt...he often has great and accurate info, but when it comes to accurate info regarding CM computer cases and trash talking Coolermaster computer cases, I refuse to entertain his negativity.

Not one of these professional review sites mentioned the HAF X sucks in the area of air flow...not one. On the contrary, every reviewer mentioned positive aspects of the air flow and designs of these cases.
PPM, you have given out incredibly accurate info most of the time [and most of us are very, very thankful to you], but when it comes to HAF X cases and air flow, you have no clue whatsoever what you are talking about! The only thing I hear is negativity and untruths.
