Here we are again with another Cooler Master review, and today sees us looking at one of the most widely talked about cases from the guys at CM. The HAF X is not only the biggest case in the HAF series but is currently one of the largest cases in the whole range of cases from them too.

It’s a widely talked about case that appeals to overclockers and more importantly gamers due to its stylish looks, and huge work space allowing for some of the biggest, beefiest components on the market. Another reason it’s had its success it down to it’s little brothers in the HAF range including the 932 and 922 which offered amazing looks and superb functionality including toll-less operation and room for a complete watercooling setup.

The HAF X is said to harness all of the good points from their little brothers whilst offering up a lot more internal space and improved and tweaked features. Let’s take a look to see if Cooler Master have answered the customers needs and wants.

    Cons:<span style="color: #ff0000;">Expensive</span>

    It is not expensive when you look at the price for some other full tower cases

  • aruffell

    Some people would consider paying £125 is very expensive for a case. For us uber geeks, maybe not 😉

    my 932 cost me about £125 from new

  • Archangel

    well as you know andy i have this very case and the only thing i can say is <span style="font-size: 15px;">I like big cases and i cannot lie U other geeks can't deny[SIZE=1][SIZE=2]the only thing i dont understand is why make it all tool less apart from the card ports </span>[/SIZE][/SIZE]thats my only gripe other than that i love it

  • Sp3xz

    It is a brilliant case considering its perfect for cable management + airflow, but the price does seem fairly steep, considering i got the CM scout + 700W Modular PSU for £130, this was my second choice. Its the only reason why i didn't get the HAF X the price, although i sorta regret it because of the space.

  • dav532000

    I am not one for paying to much on Pc components, but I do feel that you get what you pay for, and in this case, no pun intended I feel that you do. A gold award speaks for it's self. Ample cooling and I like the PSU cover and cable management over all great case for me.

  • Eternalchaos

    You guy have to remember this is a full tower case which you can put the longest motherboards inside (Gigabyte X58 G1 Assassin and MSI P67 Big Bang Marshal) and you still have room for a push/pull 360 (6x 120mm fans) radiator for watercooling This is the cheapest full tower chassis on the market at the moment. I don't count the HAF 932 because it is the same chassis but with a different look :confused:

    it would be good if review web sites were more critical about the usb 3.0 cables supplied. any case costing more than 100 and that does not connect to the 20 pin internal usb 3.0 header on all the new motherboards is not worth the money. connecting front usb ports to the back of the motherboard is from the middle ages.
