Building off the successful design of the HAF 932, the latest addition to Cooler Master's High Air Flow series is the HAF-X. The case brings with it an updated design that is centred around an industrial, heavy machinery-style concept and it looks to redefine itself as a performance oriented leader.

The company has listened to feedback from consumers and included much needed changes such as a black interior, dust filters and expanded airflow design. Cooler Master also wants to improve the experience for system builders with excellent cable management and an easy tool-less drive bay design (for the most part).

One of the most notable features about this case is its ability to support virtually every consumer level piece of hardware available. From enormous Cooler Master air coolers, to oversized ATI video cards and even motherboards based on non industry supported dimensions like XL-ATX, this case does it all.

The HAF-X is also one of the most feature rich cases available on the market with unique additions specifically tuned for better cooling and easier use. The best part is, that it ultimately leaves the finished layout completely up to the end user. It allows for the convenience of hot swappable drive bays that don't completely sacrifice 5.25" slots and still includes plenty of internal options. The airflow can be adjusted to focus more on high heat producing areas such as video cards and the large fans don't cause a ruckus. It is also one of the first cases to adopt USB 3.0 on the front panel IO connector and doesn't stop there, including every other popular connection as well. It seems almost unfathomable that you can get all this in a case under $200.

Cooler Master has proven many times that they know exactly how to make a a top-notch chassis and the HAF-X solidifies that. If you are up for a very bold styled case that can support almost anything you can throw into it and is guaranteed to meet all your performance needs, the Cooler Master HAF-X should not be overlooked.
