The Cooler Master HAF X is a full tower ATX case pumping some serious wind with front-mounted 230mm fan, as well as 200mm top and 140mm rear fans. If that's not enough ventilation, you can also install a 200mm side fan and a VGA fan. The HAF X is slightly bulkier than the HAF 932 and is constructed from SECC (Steel, Electrogalvanized, Cold-rolled, Coil) - a type of metal known for its low cost and high thermal conduction properties, The HAF X has four USB ports, a single Firewire and eSATA port along with two audio jacks. There are also two bright blue LEDs for hard drive activity and power.

Few years ago, Cooler Master presented a new enclosure family with the HAF 932 model - High Air Flow. Although very successful, this model has deserved its retirement, now replaced with a restyled and modernised model X. The heir is even larger, with...

After putting a build into the Cooler Master HAF-X, it is really hard not to like everything about it. Well, the USB 3.0 connection for the front I/O leaves a lot to be desired, but it is a temporary situation beyond Cooler Master’s control. The...
