Ya damnit, where the hells the video review !

Oh.. right


I will say this though, no REAL complaints. Just little niggles.

As far as the side window goes. It really doesn't add anything to it for me. On the side all you see is the plastic hard drive bays and such anyways.

But I really disliked the original "Security window" because it was completely useless - at least this you can now see through, at the top and it does add a bit, especially with a sexy black interior.

I like it; got rid of the HAF on the side, and the LED can be turned off. I won't be 'upgrading' from my current HAF, but to me this looks like a better product.

yes, much better. Until the HWC one is up linus' unboxing will give you a good general idea.

The hot swappable drive bays are good, USB 3.0 ports, improved cable management, all black interior, 9 (+1) PCI slots, and space for another 230mm fan is nice. All in all pretty nice, but the look is kinda fugly. Would have looked much more beastly if it were made out of more metal, maybe they could make a more high end one from aluminum.

This looks mighty impressive. If I didn't already have the 800D I might have gone with this.

I have always loved the look of the HAF series for some reason. I have the HAF 932 and I think I will have to get rid of it for the HAF X. I cannot wait!
