Introduction to the Coolermaster HAF X
Last week we took a look at one of Coolermaster’s biggest products of the year which was the Silent Pro Gold 1200 watt power supply. In our simple test we saw the unit to be more than what most people would need but for those that need this massive amount of power there isn’t many power supplies in its class. 1200 watts is impressive but the Gold 80Plus efficiency rating at load is incredible.
The Silent Pro Gold is an ideal mate for many of the cases we have reviewed like the ATCS 840 and the HAF 932. These cases are legendary and with these cases being well over a year old are selling like mad. Each of these cases were aimed at the gamer and enthusiast that wanted to take their build to the next level. My personal favorite was the ATCS 840 as its fine lines and sleek styling was a perfect representation of my personal touch. But both cases offered the flexible needed change out components with ease, offered great cable management possibilities as well as offered unparallel air circulation to keep all your well earned components running at peak levels.
The thing about Coolermaster and their engineers is they never seem to be at rest. To enhance on the features that made the HAF 932 famous Coolermaster has hit the market with the HAF X. The newest offering from the High Air Flow series is bigger (slightly), better and heavier than the HAF 932. Does that transform into another hit for Coolermaster? From the reactions from the press release on the case the answer to that question is a huge yes.
Like the HAF 932, the HAF X displays the same rugged style that gamers have come to love. The industrial look even appealing to me as much as I love the fine tuned lines of the ATCS 840 is awesome to look at. Offering more than looks the HAF X has features that the HAF 932 can only dream of. How do two HDD docks sound? How about USB 3.0 in the front display? Or nine expansion slots in the rear of the case to support triple GPU cards? Yeah, all this and more is what the HAF X is about. Lets read on.
