PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS AND FEATURES
Make no mistake, the HAF X is a big, heavy case. It will accept virtually any motherboard you can throw at it (except mini-ITX, but if you're buying the HAF X for a mini-ITX board, you've got other issues) and supports numerous storage formats and configurations. Nine expansion bays and plenty of fans (and even more fan placements,) round out the spec list, but there's much more in store in the HAF X.
Features? The HAF X has them in spades. From a SATA dock to cable management aids, Cooler Master has pulled out all the stops to equip the HAF X for virtually anything a hardcore enthusiast is likely to want in a chassis. They've paid particular attention to the graphics card area of the case with ducted airflow and a card support bracket. We'll go over all this in more detail later, but I like what I see so far. Very much.
The HAF X will also accept virtually any graphics card or CPU cooler on the market as of this writing. Let's take a closer look at the HAF X and see how all these features work together.
