    Things are looking upbeat at NVIDIA, and to feed that, Cooler Master is out with its latest NVIDIA-themed case, the HAF-X NVIDIA Edition. The company is known for making a wide range of cases themed after the GPU giant. The HAF-X NVIDIA Edition uses the HAF-X design overall, with a bright green frame, large patches of black, green colored internal parts (such as HDD trays), a green-illuminated front intake fan, and a green-tinted window with an NVIDIA "eye" streak. Measuring 230 x 599 x 550 mm, the case is designed to fit in standard ATX/MATX motherboards, as well as XL-ATX motherboards, such as the Gigabyte X58A-UD9 and the EVGA X58 Classified 4-way SLI.

    Drive bays include five internal 3.5", with two of these supporting 2.5" and 1.8" drives, six 5.25" bays, of which one is a SATA 3.5"/2.5" HDD/SSD dock. The motherboard tray features a hole behind the CPU socket area for easy access to coolers with back-plates, the GPU holder rack can reinforce long graphics cards and minimize bending of their PCBs. Ventilation is aplenty. There's a 230 mm front intake fan, a 200 mm side-panel intake fan, a 140 mm rear exhaust fan, and two optional 200 mm top exhaust fans. Its front panel includes USB 3.0 ports, USB 2.0 ports, eSATA, FireWire and audio. The HAF-X NVIDIA Edition from Cooler Master is priced at US $230.

    Now THAT is a lime green case. Way too green for my tastes. Too bad they don't have matching fan LED's the greens won't match at all!

    A case doesn't need to look good when it is targeting fanboys. :laugh:
    I take the original HAF over this any day.

    I puked a little, and I'm not sure whether it's a coincidence or not, but the color of my vomit is more or less identical to the green on that hideous case.

    Meh, coolermaster merely do this for the royalties. As long as they pump out good cases like they are at the moment theres nothing wrong in a little bit of trolling :laugh:.

    An aeon ago I actually had a case with a lime green front bezel, and it looked quite nice. I reckon this case would have been done better if it was lime + white and black, and not just the black which is quickly getting old...

    I know I'm one of only a few, but I like it. Would totally replace my standard HAF-X with that if I had the cash. I'm not so much for the NV branding but I love the color.

    Holyshat. This is UGLY. The color is just horrible! If it were dark-green it would've looked great, but this? EW!

    When are they going to roll out a new brushed aluminum flagship? Sure the Haf-x cools about as good as it get's but those bumpy plastic parts, flat black paint, multi stepped window panels... ugh. It has no class. It cost me $300 to hack together a Lian Li that will match this things airflow, I shouldn't have to do that. Brushed alum is just such an obvious direction to go in.

    What's wrong with the ATCS840? 3x230mm fans (1-in, 2-out) + 2x120mm fans (1-in, 1-out). Full aluminum case and it also has what has to be the best removable motherboard tray ever.

    That looks like a....like a...I can't even draw a comparison. Not even vomit looks that bad.

    Though whatever colour they chose, I don't think turning the entire front & top faceplates to that colour would look very good.
