[Cooler Master HAF-X] Disassembling the top

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've recently had an issue with my PC where it shut down (complete loss of power) and I wanted to determine if there is no fault with the power/reset button in my Cooler Master HAF-X tower. Trying to get the top panel off has proven an improbable to complete task without any help. I've searched through multiple threads and sites without result. Does anyone here know how I can get the top panel off?

The top panel is fairly awkward to take off with the HAF-X due to the massive bundle of wires attached to it.

To start with there are 6 clips, 3 on each side at the back, the middle and the front of the case, if memory serves you just pull them towards the outside of the case, then push up the top panel when each side is done. I also remember that the back right clip (directly above the I/O shield) can only be pressed from inside the case (you'll have to find it above the I/O shield and push it), whereas the other two on the right side can be accessed by just taking off the right panel.

Once the clips are all pressed, you should just be able to pull the panel off around two inches, at which point the front panel cables will stop you from taking it off completely.

If you disconnect every cable (including the grounding cable which is screwed to the case), you should just be able to feed the cables through the hole at the top of the case (you'll see what I mean), and gently pull the top panel off.

Also, I think most if not all of the cables are glued to the sockets in the front panel.
