Rated 5 out of 5 by JamesCole95 A great case I would recommend to anybody.
I recently decided to upgrade a few components on my computer and one thing I always wanted but never invested in was a high end computer case. However, I refused to install all of my new shiny parts into an old beaten down case and so the search for my perfect case started. I eventually narrowed my case choice down to the Haf X, Storm Stryker, Storm Trooper and the NZXT Phantom. Going with the Haf X was one of the best choices I have ever made and here is why;
1) General Aesthetics
The case has a very bulky industrial look that I wanted in a case and it also has a windowed side panel so you can see all of your different components. At first I was worried about the size and placement of the window as roughly a quarter of the side panel is taken up by a fan however this is not a problem and you still have full visibility into your case.
This case has a few different aspects that make it very easy to work with. To start all of the bays ( Including internal bays ) all use cooler masters tool-less systems making it very easy to install your components.
The big intake fan on the front and side of the case come equipped with dust filters which will help keep your case clean.
The fan on the side comes with a shroud which directs air onto your graphics card increasing air flow and cooling in areas that need it.
There are 2 hot swap bays on the front of the case that can be very useful.
There is just enough space behind the motherboard for decent cable management.
The HAF X (High Air Flow) case comes with 4 fans as standard. The front fan is a red led fan adding to the mean look of the case.
There is plenty of room in the case to allow for a high air flow.
Although this case is an amazing air cooled case it also has holes in the back for water cooling pipes and a full radiator can fit in the roof fan mounts.
Overall I believe this is the best case you can find in its price range and it offers all the functionality and perks of a much higher end case at the right price. It is a solid quality build and a very heavy case but don't worry it comes with wheels!

The Case has loads of room.
My only con is that the case came with a large scratch down the front.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Chris Best Case I have bought and has excellent space capacity and great for cable management. Cooling temps have dropped and the USB 3.0 ports on the front is good too.
The only negatives is that the side fan shroud did get in the way of my AMD 7970 Vapor-X GHZ edition GFX card even though the case is BIG. (these cards are chunky) I have since removed the shroud and all is well.
Did however, install other fans with LED's, as the stock ones are good but little on the cheap side.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Red The amount of space is amazing along with the cable management, the tool-less hdd and optic drive bays, the over-all coolness of the temperature and the relative silent fans in relation with their size makes this case a most for pc gaming enthusiasts... the fact it comes on wheels is a added bonus.
Two of the optic bays could have been hdd hot boot drives and the hot boot bays should have been tool-less, the fact that you have to screw the hdd to the caddy first seems a bit slow for something that is meant to be quick.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bruce Very nice looking, and Very good ventilation. Loads of space for pretty much anything you could throw in there :)
Case is abit big for some PSU's cables, but you can get around it with a few mods.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bob A little more 'space' for cables etc at the right hand side, behind mobo was expected. Nonetheless in spite of this it is a great case. Fits ALL my SSD's & HDD's comfortably.
