I use twist ties to set up my cables before using any kind of device to secure my cables. The only zip ties I have in my system are to the purse locks to hold my SATA cables in place. So if this helps, regardless of your favorite securing devices, always pre configure your cables with twist ties. Once you're happy with the setup and the door can go on without forcing it, then lock em in. Twist ties are the shizz because every mother has them laying around in a kitchen drawer somewhere. wink.gif

I don't think so. Cooler master says the front on the HAF 912 can be replaced with either 2 120mm fans or a single 200mm fan (I ordered 2 of the blue ones, one for the top and one for the front, and a 120 blue sickleflow for the side and back. Gonna get a cold cathode too!).

I have a corsair tx 750 psu (non modular) and there's cables everywhere. I did a decent enough job of hiding cables behind the back panel but now everything looks ugly xD

i have the same issue on my antec 300 thats has my current rig in it and zip ties i used alot lol.. but if u take ur time and route it nicely, it prolly cant be worse than what was posted already 1 page ago lol

I can't really do much for cable management 'cause my power supplies 6pins/8pins are already sleeved sort of. It's more just a thick rubber coated cable. This also makes them MUCH less flexible, and therefore i have to run them directly from the power supply with no cable management! D:

Haha is that Oh my god the horror of it all kinda of tone lol looks and sounds worse than what it was to do patience is the key If i didn't care about airflow or neatness i wouldn't of bothered

Be careful with twist ties. Always make sure you are using paper ties if you are going to be securing anything to the back of the motherboard tray. Don't use metal twist ties because the rubber coating on them can come off and if the metal makes contact with the motherboard you could run the risk of shorting something. For the safety of your system, I'd stick with plastic zip-ties or velcro wraps.

A conjunction wouldn't have changed my response. I was talking about the 140mm when I posted that (I was agreeing that it wouldn't work).

The front and top are either 2 120s or a single 200 mm. The back is a 120 mm, the side is a 120 or a 140.

NCIX ((Chris, Ryuji & co.) were cool enough to grant me a full refund and free shipping for the return. But I'm not about to take another HAF X lotto again, so now I have to find a new case.
I still really like the design of the HAF X; it's got great airflow yet does the job with relative quietness due to its large fans. But the lack of quality control and the cheapness of the materials ruined the deal for me (too much plastic!). If Lian-Li can offer the all aluminum A71F at around $200, I'm sure CM can do the same.
Prior to discovering my case's misalignment problem, I inquired CM about some sort of internal USB 3.0 to 2.0 adapter because I don't want to waste the front 3.0 ports (I don't have a USB 3.0 mobo). The CM rep told me that such an adapter does not exist, believe it or not. Yet if you look at some of the recent tech news, Antec who offer such adapters for free to their customers so they can utilize all of their front USB ports. Lian-Li ships these 3.0 to 2.0 converters with many of their cases. And I think Silverstone included them too in their recent products.
Seeing that I will no longer use the HAF X anyways, I told the CM rep about the misalignment defect and gave him ample evidence to it not being an isolated issue (well, it only takes 2 minutes to see how widespread the issue is through google). I emphasize their need as a responsible brand to at least investigate and to issue a recall if it is indeed a bad batch so that future customers don't need to go through such headaches. But knowing how CM dodgy their customer service is, I doubt there will be any productive to come out of this.

Actually my HAF X did come with some cable to hook up my USB 3.0 to 2.0 headers to the mobo. I am really sorry to hear about the misalignment issue. I know that my case aligned just fine, but have read of this issue previously.

Sorry to see you leave the community too. Good luck with your next case, hope it works out for you.

Have any of you guys ordered directly from cooler master?
I ordered a HAF X 3.5" bay converter on the 30th of December and it just now shipped, and the tracking says it won't get here until the 16th.
Just seems awfully slow for a $10 shipping fee, especially for such a small item. That'd be 17 days from order date to the day I receive it. rolleyes.gif
