Nice quality case with lots of internal space
2 weeks ago
Summary: Would definitely recommend. Had no problem putting a Sapphire Nitro R9 390 into this case!
Pros: Solid build. Plenty of space for easy cable management
Cons: Machining was slightly off on one of the four side panels thumb screw holes. Have to really push on case and side panel to get screw hole to align with panel to put thumb screw in. Over all a minor issue, but would have given rating of 5 except for this.
Summary: I would still buy this case over any other. The wheels come in handy due to the case weighing around 30-40 pounds when fully outfitted. I still had to remove an egg due to the funnel's design flaw.
Pros: Lots of space. Simple layout Great cooling Sturdy frame Comes with wheels
Cons: The air funnel that directs air from the front 230mm fan blocks the PCI-E socket on the video card. I use an EVGA gtx 960 and I had to remove the funnel to plug in the card. I don't know if this is consistent with other cards, but it's still an issue. Also the Multi card support accessory does no...
Summary: Not much to say here except that besides being made for maximum air flow this case also allows for years of use with it built in configurability. The multiple HD bays make setting up a RAID a snap, pun not intended, as far as putting the HD's into the tower.
Pros: Personally I hate small cars because there is never enough room to reach where you need too to fix something. The same goes with computer towers. The C.M. HAF X is the 4 door sedan of cases compared to all the other cases I have used. Like a sedan there are things to take into account however. Si...
Cons: Besides the usual back complaints of having a full tower that full tower owners are willing to deal with, there are only a couple of things that I feel warrant mentioning. The top of the tower only comes with one fan when there are two allotted spots. With how cheap fans are to get a hold of it w...
Summary: Another great HAF case and a definite improvement over the last generation. Highly recommended.
Pros: Very spacious. Easy to use drive bays. Great airflow and expansion options for more cooling/water cooling. Hardware provided is of good quality, with most things in multiples. Basic Fan setup is more than sufficient for overclocking. Love the rollers for the case!
Cons: USB 3.1 connector to the front is done in a weird way, but it works. I do not use it, however. The brass stand-offs can be a pain if you take the Motherboard out frequently (They will come los/get stuck on the screw etc.). They can also try relatively easily (Only the stand-offs, luckily, and not...
Summary: Should have ordered more of the giant fans. I have open slots with mesh coverings where optional fans should be, and more dust will get in there as a result. Otherwise, a good case design. If they re-designed the things I mentioned above, it would be an awesome case.
Pros: Lots of room, lots of drive bays. Nice sliding cover plate over the power and reset switches, for those who have marauding pets. Comes with caster wheels.
Cons: It's a heavy case. Nuff said there. A lot of the material inside is throwaway, like the plastic piece that's supposed to go over your power supply. You need air to keep that the power supply cool, so out the plastic piece goes (with no ill effects). Video cards are fast enough these days to not r...
Cons: A couple weeks ago i plugged a flash drive into one of the USB 3.0 ports and when i removed it the plastic part inside the port came with it making that port unusable. Also the side panel with the window is a little fidgety to get on and off
Summary: I Don't know if this case is ever going to come back, and I still have it but it isn't being used, but if it does come back, i'd recommend it to anyone looking for a cheap build like i was when i built my first built.
Pros: I loved this case, it was great and was used for me first build. It supported even my GTA 970 Asus strix when i got my new graphics card barely!
Cons: only 3 that is why i gave it 4 eggs, 1. Cables seemed short 2. Not alot of fan options. 3. not entirely alot of space, but was manageable.
Pros: This is a very large case has tons of room to work. Fits my Asus matrix GTX 980 no problem but I do not have enough room for the VGA fan duct to fit and I bought a extra 120mm fan for that but oh well. This case has a very sturdy solid feel to it and should last me for quite some time. I personal...
Cons: No major cons but I did take one egg of because it was apparent that this case was an open box item and I purchased new. I unpacked the case and there were already two MOBO standoffs installed and come of the cables were already ran and zip tied to the back. Not major enough for me to send the ca...
Summary: This is my first full size case and coincidentally the most money I've ever spent on a PC case. I went with Cooler Master because of brand familiarity and a recommendation from a friend. The out of box experience was great! It felt quite hefty and was well packaged which is always a relief.
Summary: Great case. This is my husbands case and mine was a corsair. Where as I prefer the corsair, this case is incredibly spacious and allows for more than enough room for proper cable management. The only complain is that the fan on the case has the protector piece and it's incredibly bulky.
