Doesn't that remove some of the H out of the HAF?

Nice to see a black edition though.

Side Panel fans have been proven to interrupt proper airflow.

Still has that fugly logo though. Coolermaster REALLY needs to redesign that to something that is NOT so "in your face".

Well HAF does rhyme with naff.

Just out of Curiosity, where have you seen this?

I only ask because If I turn off my side Panel Fans the temps in my case/GPU's, Chipset etc etc are elevated, sometimes by up to 10 degrees.

Yeah same here. In my experience side fans help with cooling not hurt it.

It all depends on how the case was designed and how you have the side panel fans setup. IF you don't take them into account they can truly mess up your internal flow and leave hot dead zones / eddies that will shake and bake your kit. That is rare though, and usually as long as you apply SOME logic to it the old adage "more is better" holds true for side panel fans.

Personally I like the window over the side fan. First of all, it doesn't effect the temperatures immensely and the fan also causes many more problems with heat sink clearance. Plus it looks nice and more clean with the side window. A great improvement.

Any word on a release date?

Needs to lose the HAF on the side, and dust filters for the fans.

Nicer looking than the old HAF (of which I have two).
