    The much anticipated HAF X debuts as the most powerful HAF (High Air Flow) chassis yet. Designed for performance systems, this chassis is able to house today's latest and hottest CPUs, motherboards, graphics cards and is even compatible with USB 3.0 devices. With specialized support and cooling for graphic cards, massive airflow with the help of up to four gigantic fans and easy access to installed components, this is as close as it gets to a system builder's 'dream case'.

    HAF X provides powerful airflow with the help of massive-sized fans: dual 200mm top fans, front 230mm red LED on/off fan provide outstanding system cooling and extreme airflow for the entire system. An additional 200mm fan with dedicated air duct has also been added for unsurpassed VGA cooling.

    Effortless Installation & Management: Simply Better
    A unique feature of the HAF X is that users can easily swap hard drives with the new SATA dock without the need of removing the side panel. Other notable mentions include tool-free design, refined cable management system (including a power cable cover), safety on/off button cover and a bottom-mount power supply.

    Upgradeability
    Expansion for tomorrow’s most demanding graphic cards is not a problem with the nine expansion slots, spacious interior for extra long boards (i.e. ATI Radeon HD 5970) and even an adjustable VGA card holder for added sturdiness.

    not in a year or so.AMD just launch 800 series chipset, and I don't see they will update the chipset soon.
    Intel will not integrate USB 3.0 on their future chipset which came with sandy bridge LGA1155

    I freaking hate the look of these HAF cases but I know some of you ballers love them so you may enjoy the annoying voice NCIX dude's video review.
    WarEagleAU says thanks.

    Nice one, the 9 expansion slots and nVidia ready GPU ducting make it interesting. I can easily mod the outside to look like anything I want.

    Still waiting for a uATX HAF case or a storm series case from Coolermaster... They should make a mini HAF or a mini sniper!

    That's because you never dealt with NCIX. Linus is one of most helpful staff they have.

    USB3.0 uses 8 wires instead of 4.

    You're right, I haven't, but I'm not doubting his ability just his 'cool' factor. Your definition of cool could be very different to mine.

    Yeah the industrial style look my turn some away, but the interior design and large fans make up for it IMO.

    Pretty awesome.

    I'll take one... provided they add filters where needed and possibly make a version without the side fan.

    Great options and features, but just not the looks I care for.. I'd say it's ugly. The plastic that surrounds it really makes it gaudy. I'd love to see the same chassis but without the plastic junk.. Something more streamlined and classy. I can see this being a very popular case for all the HAF lovers.
