About the USB 3.0 issue, you need to call Cooler Master and they will ship you the correct cable that you need to connect the front panel USB 3.0 ports to your motherboard headers (i believe that they will ship it to you free of charge but don't quote me on that. I read in an article that they do ship them for free but I don't know if this is still true or not) instead of routing the cables out the back of the case and plugging them into the ports on the back. The reason Cooler Master doesn't include them with the case is, until now, no one had headers on their boards for USB 3.0 and so it would have cost them more money to ship a cable that nobody would use. Cooler Master is a great company that stands by their customers and you can't fault them for saving a few bucks where it is warranted. At least they right their wrongs (if you can even call it that) by sending the cable to people that need them. So if you have a Sandy Bridge setup and a HAF X then make sure to call CM and they'll set it right with you. I'm going to call anyways since I know that this case will live through a few upgrades down the road so might as well think ahead and get the cable now. I hope this little tidbit of information was helpful and that it answered your question/solved your problem. (Make sure that you NEVER plug and USB header into a 1394 (firewire) header on the motherboard as you will seriously screw some stuff up badly)...

Yeah, I have a stock HAF 932 door on my HAF X (courtesy of our faithful thread leader... FannBlade) to get the extra CFM of having 4 X 120mm fans on my door instead of the 200mm stock fan. It's a direct replacement and fits perfectly without any spots that would lead me to think that it wasn't made for the HAF X lol. In fact case wise, the HAF X is a HAF 932 case wise except all the plastic parts were re-done to add the fans outside of the metal enclosure of the case to make room for a radiator on the inside of the case. Let me know if you'd like to see some pics of it. I know I've posted dozens of them through this thread but I won't make you go through over a thousand pages to find them lol. I'll post a few when I get to my computer and can do it.

I've cut out the back on most of them to fit a 120mm fan as well, although that can be a bit more work to make it look nice due to the 2 x 80 fan openings (such as they are).
Yeah I was thinking of doing a 140 there since it'll fit and be far quieter/take less fan controller connections.

I'd put a 120 in back if I had Bondo skills, but at this point I've yet to touch the stuff so I'm just gonna do the front/top fan cutouts and paint her and mount 80s in the back till I have some Bondo experience and revisit the mod.

No problem. That's what we are all here for right? To learn from other peoples experiences and mistakes and to inform others of ours. That's what makes this community so great, because everyone is willing to help one another out. I can't think of another example of this type of community other than the Computer Enthusiast community. Isn't this where we insert a group hug (which I would do if I wasn't typing this on my cell phone using Tapatalk)?
