Summary: ...I was building a custom high-end PC for extreme graphics work, and after much research decided to get this case as it was spacious and had LOTS of fans built into it. ...The case is Outstanding and i love it!..All the techies I work with in a post-production house are highly impressed with it as well, so much so that they all want one now, so it is safe to say it is sturdy, roomy, and very quiet! ...However, the 'BUT!' in the title refers to the delivery..
Summary: This case has plenty of good features. The large fans, the spacious interior and the almost effortless mounting of hard drives and burners made assembly faster than most computers I have assembled over the years. So what didn't I like? I had to remove the sliding cable cover in front of the bottom mounted power supply. It was just too awkward trying to route cables and connect wires/plugs onto the lower edge of the motherboard.
Summary: This case by far is the best I have ever purchased. Even as a mid tower this case will give you more room then you will ever need for building a gaming or any other type of rig. The best part about this case is the large back panel you can store and run your cables threw to make a extremely clean looking build.
Summary: 1. Need a better removable bottom psu filter. You need to take out the psu to clean it. The filter holes is too large so dust will get into the psu easily. You will definately need to dust often, but its going to be too much of a hassle to take out the psu. One solution is to mount it top fan up and attaching a magnet filter. 2. Not enough rubber grommets on the side and top.
Summary: I've been building my own desktops since 486 days, this is by far the best case I've ever bought. It's a bit longer and wider than your standard mid tower, but it's perfect. Cable management is awesome, plenty of drive bays, it's quiet and makes less noise than my old Antect 900. The only thing that could have made this better was USB ports on top versus the front.
Summary: Great case, love everything about it, the hard drive system especially. It loses a star because it arrived with the top plastic attaching pieces broken. Normally not a problem, not gonna lose a star over some shipping problem. The star loss comes from submitting the part request to coolermaster on december 11th and finally hearing back from them today, february 13th. It should be here in two days. So 2 months, 4 days for a part replacement.
Great cable management, superb quality and engineering
24 January 2013
Summary: After a two year computer case search, I recently completed rebuilding my computer with the CM - HAF XM and the engineering and quality are excellent. The case offers plenty of room and outstanding engineering made the cable management superb (The cables are hidden behind the motherboard and underneath the cable cover) and as a result, I no longer have a spiderweb of cables inside the case.
