  • Summary: I bought the HAF X due to the level of functionality that it can provide and the surprisingly low level of noise that this case seems to entail. However, due to a somewhat prevalent issue with Coolermaster's quality control, I got a slanted chassis from a possible bad batch; my HAF X won't let me mount my videocards and soundcard onto it. No amount of wiggle or twitching will get things lined up properly. In the end, I'm out $30 for shipping this case.
  • Pros: -Large 200mm and 230mm fans gives out low noise (low rpm) but achieves great airflow due to its larger size than conventional 120mm and 140mm case fans, -Hefty solid steel frame, -Good extra features like rubber HDD mountings (you can actually simultaneously fit 2 SSDs onto the supplied 2.5" mounting plate), extra 200mm top fan holes, good cable management through nice rubber grommets, -Large, should be fairly enough to work in
  • Cons: -Ugly, too much plastic for the money, -VGA card holder, the 120mm fan duct, the shroud... too gimmickly and really do nothing for most people, unnecessarily adding to the overall cost of the case, -CPU backplate cutout is a joke; no point having a cutout of many boards running on LGA 1155 can't make use of it, -Too much plastic, making the case feel cheap, -Included casters are a joke; very cheap plastic wheels that are unlikely to withstand the weight of a fully ass...

  • Summary: I had high expectations for this case and I am disappointed in the final product. Neutral observation: The CPU cutout on the motherboard tray is useless for Sandy Bridge boards. Not really a negative since I installed my heatsink cooler before I installed the motherboard in the case. Just keep in mind that the cutout was not designed for the LGA1155 socket.
  • Pros: Easy motherboard installation and easy hard drive and DVD drive installation., Huge 200mm low noise fans keep the case cool., USB 3.0 front panel headers and industrial styling if that's your thing.
  • Cons: Back of the case does not align with video card. Can't screw in gtx580 video card and had to use VGA holder., One triangular metal lip at the outer bottom of the case (designed to hold the case together) was pointed outward (stab hazard) when it should have been folded in like all the other lips., Easy to confuse motherboard screws for fan screws. They both look exactly alike except that fan screws are 2mm longer (yes, 2mm, not 2cm).

  • Excerpt: Криво приклепанная железяка (по другому и не скажешь) для крепления плат расширения в итоге в верхнем слоте все нормально, а в нижних платы просто нельзя (без шаманства) прикрутить, зазор доходит до 1см (как так можно было сделать я не представляю, не встречал такого на куче самых дешевых китайских жестяных корпусах).
  • Pros: Большой, просторный, хорошая вентиляция.
  • Cons: Самый главный недостаток это не прямой угол между поддоном материнской платы и задней стенкой. Бесполезные пылевые фильтры, особенно фильтр блока питания. Общее качество изготовления не соответствует цене.

  • Conclusion: Denna låda är en gammal modell, gjord för gamla modellens moderkort. Inte ett dugg prisvärd, du får en bättre låda för samma pris !! (Antec 280 tex, billigare) MEN ... ska du bygga en server tex med ett gammalt moderkort .. är den bra ( med lite moderering) HOTswappen är inte med snabbfästen !! Det går snabbare att byta HD internt. 230 fläkten är en 200 .. med stor ram. Många finesser, men du klarar dig utan.
