Cooler Master HAF X dissected

Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Top quality, reasonable price


Today we welcome the HAF X to our lab, the new case from Cooler Master's HAF (High Air Flow) series. Cooler Master timed the HAF X really well as the HAF 932, one of the most popular cases these past couple of years, has started losing ground to newer competing high-end cases. HAF X certainly comes prepared and packs all the bells and whistles, perhaps most notably hot-swappable 3.5"/2.5" trays and USB 3.0 connectors. Just like HAF 932, HAF X comes with large silent fans.

Of course we’re talking about a full tower case with a well designed interior. Large motherboards like GA-X58A-UD9 or EVGA X58 Classified 4-Way SLI will fit like a glove, which isn’t something many cases can brag about. All this will set you back some €165, which is about what competing cases go for.

Good job on the review. Nice and detailed, but still not boring at all. I like the case, but tbh, if you're not getting 3+ video cards and a XL-ATX mobo, you won't really need a case like this. Save your money and buy a CM 690 II Advanced. It has a lot of nice features too.

I'll agree with Nerdfighter. It would be over kill to build anything less than what he describes above in this case. What I would really like to see is a slightly smaller version of this like the 922 was to the 932.

The real issue with today's cases are "air channels" and the other problem is axial fan. Ideal air flow is one way in and one way out. Also there should be more air in then out - over pressure and, I know they are big, centrifugal fans are more powerful and more quiet. Ideal case would be long.

An opinionated visual observation: This case is a Big, Clunky, Fugly Cheezfest ... ROFL some teenagers "dream case" nonetheless.
