I own an HAF-X since a year or so and I am loving it. Great airflow, lots of space. The only case I would see better from CM is the monstrous Cosmos 2 but it come with a price too. I don't know much about other company's cases but I love mine. I recently moved the side fan to the top and bought another Megaflow for the side. Although I can't seem to see any temperature drop, it does help provide fresher air. I had some problems closing the top part because USB cables were hitting the fan but once forced-in, everything is running cool and quiet.

Nope Haf X is the best IMO! I'm in the process of modding the crap out of mine for water cooling :) You'll love it, it's huge the stock fans are very quiet I was very surprised you can take the side fan and put it up top. Only thing I don't like is the crappy dust filters but you can get some from DMCIflex I think it's called. Its just awesome.

You MAY want to wait a few days since there MAY be something newish coming from Cooler Master...

if you're looking for an air cooled case, look up some reviews on the silverstone ft02. it's amazing and keeps everything cool without the bulkiness of the haf series.
