I shall check if my covers rattle atall now and i will check the standoffs also! what standoffs are you looking at specifically, so it will be quicker for me to analyse them?

Thank you for the point-out and the lips on the stand-offs seam to fit perfectly into the hole on a motherboard, i have tested, i think it is just to keep the motherboard straight and aligned when installing it or something like that, but the lips are nothing to worry about, the just pop straight in the hole

okay, so after tedious searching, Haf cases come with 2 standoffs that are longer than the rest. This is the result of the raised lip on these 2 stand offs which are meant to help beginners line up the motherboard to the standoffs (the lips kind of lock the mobo hole into place). However, these should be removed and replaced with the regular standoffs. On the Haf X, the raised lip stand offs are the B and E preinstalled standoffs.

Just sayin so when other people see this oddity and search, this post will come up

sorry for jackin your thread +1 rep as an apology haha

Well I'm not thrilled with this review..

1. Lightning was bad

2. Low res camera,and with black on black interior it was really hard to see all features/parts..

3. Done on the floor instead of the table..

4. That POV with the camera part was so shaky that almost gave ma a head aik ..

5. Kinda rushed trough the whole review,talking fast..


Good luck..

1 & 2 is due to a camera on a dell streak tablet, so not a very good camera :/ another camra has been looked into.

3 is due to not having a table in my bedroom exept from my computer desk which is not ideal in any way.

4 is due to the homemade stand

5 i dont no about this 1, i though it was ok sort of and about talking fast, its my accent, but it really isent that fast, the MIC just wasn't very clear as it was also recorded from the dell streak tablet, it was a bit muffeld :/

Thank you for your opinion, very much apriciated! and REP+ for it
