It should just fine... I don't own one so I can't say for sure, but by the specs it should

EDIT:

@kita
The screws on mine went in just fine


And a question... My gpus generate a lot of heat so inwas wondering if my temps would lower if I made my top fans intakes for some intense positive pressure and made my h70 an exast, because at this point my h70 is just pulling k. The hot air from my gpus anyways

It depends. The top 3.5" drive bay cage (holds 4 of the 6 drives) is removable which allows you to install larger cards. If you don't need those bays for hard drives and the PCI-E slots on your motherboard line up with that removable bay then yes.

As for the SA and Ven-X, according to the spec sheets they should.

I read back when the HAfX monster was released there were some issues with finding screws that would fit the threads, has that been sorted out now?

Here is an example of what I mean: Cooler Master HAF X - Full tower - extended ATX ( ATX / PS/2 ) - black - USB/FireWire/Audio/E-SATA: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Oh, and has anyone got their HafX quiet enough to sleep within 2 feet away from it?

Thanks again all, really appreciate all the help ^^

Also, have Coolermaster given any indication on what will eventually replace the HafX series? I read they are apparently going to mix things up a bit in their coming designs, which would make sense with them having to replace a lot of staff for the second time (the first instance being when a chunk of their design team quit to go to Silverstone)..
The best 200mm fans for the HAF X are the ones Cooler Master makes called the "MegaFlow" series. The case comes with three. One in the front, one on the side, and one in the top. The one on the side is not an LED fan. It's a standard black fan - identical to the one already installed in the top. I recommend buying one more 200mm MegaFlow fan and installing it in the side, then adding the one that was previously installed in the side, to the top fan mount.

And no, they're very easy to mount. You just pop the top plastic part of the case off, get yourself a smaller screwdriver, and screw them down to the top of the case. Easy as can be. Also, I lost half my screws the first go around, so I used standard "case" screws - you know, the standard 5.25" drive screws - also the size that most expansion slots use.

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicati...940&CatId=5404

BTW, the CM MegaFlows are the highest CFM available in the 200mm format I do believe - and they're also so quiet you cannot hear them. They're also guaranteed to fit the case, whereas I know NZXT's 200mm fans do not fit, at all, period.

KijanOZ, rep given!

Thank you so much for taking the time to answer my questions and for your advice; its great to know the fans are quiet, somehow I got it into my head this case would be a noisy beast!

Cheers also for the link and advice on moving the fans around, will definitely do that, as for screws, well like most people, whenever I find myself with a junk case on its way to the great recycling plant in the sky, I always strip them of all useable screws and mounts as you never know when they might come in handy! So yeah, never in short supply of alternatives ; )

I really appreciate your help, thanks mate!

When it comes to fans, the general rule is that the bigger the fan, the slower it has to spin to generate the same amount of cooling power. The slower it spins, the quieter it is. Therefore, the big 200mm fans can cool very well while still being very quiet.

Thanks for that superhead, I have like, 7 decks here at home, but they all use 120mm fans which, even for the quiet ones are noisy and annoy the wife, which is why the only one near her is this dual core Wolfdale which only has a very quiet coolermaster cpu fan and a silent psu, no other system fans, so it is almost silent. I've never had a case that can hold a 200mm fan and so just assumed they must be noisy - my ignorance and wrong assumption there then!

I'll be building the HafX for a mate, but got tempted myself now as well; I had ordered a Phantom, but after reading through the NZXT forums and seeing the level of RMA's related to fan controllers and faulty fans, cancelled that, changed the order to a Silverstone Raven 2, but saw here a lot of people having issues with broken fans on arrival, so just cancelled that order and now find myself probably going for a HafX myself too. I did have some real concerns about the issues with the front panel CM had, but apparently all stock in stores with high product turnover should be revised stock, as it has dropped to £125 almost everywhere, that is a lot of case per pound so....I think I'm in too.

I've found that the best airflow configuration for keeping GPUs cool is front and side intake with back and top exhaust

Thanks for the help with the 912, but found a better solution: HAF 932 Advanced refurbished for 100 shipped. =)

Guess I'll be joining the club once this build is complete. =)
