5 out of 5 eggsCM HAF X Blue Edition Review

Pros: Space. Loooots of space.
Front USB3.0, eSATA
SATA backplane for quick hard drive swapping
Room to put more fans/radiatiors, if needed.
Sturdy case chassis/panels
Front 230mm fan - lots if air movement with no noise
Casters in the box. Fully loaded, the case weighs a lot. WIth the casters, it makes disconnecting and pulling the case out for troubleshooting easy.
Thumb screws. Very easy to remove side panels and install PCI cards because they all use thumb screws.

Cons: Hard drive mounting strategy is kind of cheap. I had to try at least 5 different times to get the metal pin to stay in the rubber grommet when installing a 3.5" HDD. Maybe I'm just uncoordinated, but when I had a CM storm enforcer, the HDD rails were great and easy to use - these trays, not so much.
Heavy. Very heavy. To be expected, though. Large case.
Can only use VGA air duct OR side panel air duct, not both. Not a big deal because both provide adequate amounts of air flow to the interior.
Side 200mm fan connection gets in the way of closing the case sometimes. I probably should have routed the fan connector before everything else, but I don't feel like taking my case apart again.

Other Thoughts: Had to upgrade the case to fit the 970's. The HAF X is a monster of a case and you'll have enough room to fit any component in it.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing case- Way too much space inside. I love it!

Pros: Absolute ton of space
Hot Swap Bays
Very pleasing design

Cons: 2 gripes and it's not a big deal.

User manual is written in 300 languages confusing to read.
Side install drive bay trays are made of plastic and you have to be VERY careful putting them back in and handling them. I would actually pay $20 for this design with metal trays instead of that plastic.

Other Thoughts: I was going to go with the Cosmos II but after seeing the actual size of this case in person I'm glad I didn't because it's more than big enough for everything I need. You could literally run Quad SLI in this thing and still have room left over for a full water cooling loop for everything.

It's insane.

5 out of 5 eggsCooler Master's Customer Service is Top-Notch!!

Pros: I've had this computer case for quite some time and have not left a comment that it deserves. For it's Gaming purposes, it's definitely one of the better, if not best, designs out there when it comes to cooling and design. The design itself may need a new rendition because of newer cases coming out, but for functionality--it's definitely worth the purchase. One of the USB ports chipped off because of possible continuous use and Cooler Master, despite not having a receipt, was willing to replace the I/O panel. I just received a brand new replacement without a hassle.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsWarped Back, Broken Front Fan

Pros: -good airflow

-4 fans

Cons: -came with a warped back, pulling my GPU while it was in the motherboard, probably doing some damage

-front fan only works if you open the front panel and spin the fan manually to get it started

-front USB ports are upside down

Other Thoughts: Really disappointed in this expensive case. I wonder if they will give me a full replacement, probably not.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsGreat and sturdy case

Pros: This case has plenty of air flow, and plenty of space for multiple drives and large GPUs. The quick lock buttons make installing DVD drives very easy. The side window gives you a good view of the inside of your computer, and the wire shroud makes it very easy to hide a mess of cables.

Cons: The firewire port started smoking and shorted out the first time I turned on the computer. It is a port I don't use so not worth deducting an egg. The side air shroud, vga air duct, and vga bracket will not fit with some large GPUs like the EVGA 780ti classified

Other Thoughts: The front USB ports are up side down. This is just a bit strange, but not detrimental to function. There is a button to turn off the fan LED, but it only works for the front LED. The other fans have switches on the fans. I have not had a chance to use the hotswap bay yet, but I did wire it up for future use.

4 out of 5 eggsI LOVE this case!

Pros: I am very impressed and very pleased with this case. Fits the Corsair H100i liquid cooler PERFECTLY! Mounted the small 120mm fans below the rad and using the 200mm fans (2x) above for a push-pull airflow. Should cool a hot Intel Quad-Core very well. Plenty of room for everything I need in a high-end workstation.

Cons: As almost everyone else remarks on this case, I find the missing fans a nuisance at best and I would've very willingly paid more for them to be installed in the box already. So one Egg OFF for the missing fans. Specifically, I had to add a Cooler Master MegaFlow 200mm Blue LED fan, N82E16835103073, on top next to the other one. I also had to buy a Cougar 120mm Blue LED fan, N82E16835553012, for the plastic cowling intended to cool the video card. Newegg sells both of these. I also had to track down a hard to find 80mm Diameter x 15mm Thick Blue LED fan for the metal bracket that's supposed to be mounted above the video card. That last 80x15 fan was very hard to find, especially with a Blue LED in it. Newegg does NOT carry the 80x15 Blue LED fan so I had to buy it elsewhere. Happy hunting as I cannot tell you where. :-) Newegg's Rules ya know. But their initials are P P C s. Hopefully that will not get censored out. The little 80x15 fan with a blue led was really hard to find.

Other Thoughts: The parts list for this build starts with an Intel i7-4790K Haswell 4.0GHz Quad-Core/8-Threads LGA 11150 CPU, an ASUS Z97-DELUXE LGA 1150 Motherboard, 32GB Kingston Fury HyperX RAM (2 kits of a 2x 8GB Sticks Kits), a CORSAIR Hydro Series H100i liquid cooler, as my friend uses his quad-core CPU, all 8 threads, at 100% duty cycle on all 8 threads all the time! He's an extreme power user. :-) So air cooling was definitely not gonna be enough. We used an ASUS Radeon R9 280 3GB Video card, a pair of WD Black 1TB and 2TB hard drives, and an LG Blu-Ray burner and an LG DVD Burner. All drives are 6GB/s SATA drives with appropriate 6GB/s latching SATA data cables. Stuff all this into the Cooler Master HAF X Blue case and power it up with a SeaSonic 860W Platinum-rated power supply. I even modded the case by replacing the power LED with a 3mm High-Brightness Blue LED. He likes the Blue LED's and I have to admit that I do too. I did not buy the LED's through Newegg but they do carry some. I will probably replicate all of the above for myself as I really like this build a LOT. He and I usually prefer Lian Li cases (from Newegg) but this case is the exception. A really fine build. I'm hoping that he will be very happy with this build for a long, long time. I put a LOT of work in on it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Case

Pros: Great looking case, excellent air flow. You can mount a large size radiator on the top bracket and get push + pull going with the large fan included. Great design, really happy.

Cons: Kind of hard to fit the included airduct, side fan port thing and GPU bracket all in there. No problem though, you can just remove those if you really cant get it too fit.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Buy

Pros: Got to my house in one day. Looks grate. Fans work better than I thought. The coolest feature Is you can put an 120mm fan on the bracket for the GPU

Cons: you can not mount Fans or a second radiator at the bottom of the case

5 out of 5 eggsTANK

Pros: This case is solid. Worth the extra money for a case like this, plenty of room and easy to build on.

I'll be buying a 2nd one soon. Price went up, waiting for a price drop!

Cons: Wasn't free.

Other Thoughts: Did I tell you how much I like this case? Newegg is the best.
