Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Cooler Master HAF X - Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 Ports and Windowed Side Panel (RC-942-KKN1) (Personal Computers)
What a case! I went from a mid-tower to a full-tower chassis. Cable management was a cinch. Of the 3 hours spent transferring parts from old chassis to the HAF X, maybe 30 minutes, if that, was spent on cable management. I'm still new to building, however, this case made me look like a professional.
Couple of minor issues:
1. There is a red LED 230mm fan located at the front, a 200mm non-LED fan on the side panel, and a 200mm non-LED fan at the top. Cooler Master allows for an additional 200mm fan at the top of the chassis. Since I didn't go with a water cooled system, I decided to install the additional 200mm fan at the top. However, Cooler Master only sells a red or blue LED 200mm fan. With that said, I took the fan from the side panel (non-LED) and placed it on top along with the other pre-installed 200mm fan, and placed the new additional red LED 200mm fan on the side panel. Looks awesome. Another issue though was that the screws that came with the additional fan that I purchased are different from the screws on the pre-installed fan at the top. I had to contact Cooler Master to send me the exact screws they used on the pre-intalled fan.
2. In regards to the USB 3.0 front inputs, you'll either need a motherboard that supports USB 3.0, or a PCI USB 3.0 card to attach the cables to.
Other than that, the case rocks. I also installed the Cooler Master V8 and not only does it look amazing, but got my temperatures down by like 5-10 degrees!
