This Thread/Club is for the HAF cases which includes the HAF X so don't worry about it. We will have you added in no time at all (hopefully that is) but it may be a little bit as there are a ton of names to add as soon as Ceadderman logs in and starts adding or transfers ownership over to someone else.

Hey All,

Well I just upgraded from My Lian Li PC 60B-Plus case which was too small and didn't cool well enough to the HAF X. I have to say that the case was a little daunting at first what with the size and all but I eventually got the hang of it.

I have to say that luckily all the cable management holes were right where they should be for my motherboard however I wouldn't be opposed to cutting a cable management hole at the bottom left right below the headers for the usb and audio. I removed the cables for the E-Sata and the Firewire. I didn't wan't to take the chance of burning the chip on my motherboard in case the issue was not previously. I also have the cpu retention hole right where it should be. I will be posting extensive pics for everyone because I think everyone out there should be aware of where the cpu retention hole will be if they have a motherboard like mine. I believe the P5Q Deluxe Motherboard will probably be the same as mine for placement.

Now for the cable management at the back of the case. I almost didn't get the back door on this thing. I found the included cable management mounts severly lacking in proper placement. I will bee to do a proper job once I get my stuff from performance-pcs.com. I have about 50 cable tie mounts coming. I did find the internal space of the case very nice indeed. I found spots to run everything where it should go but again I will have to do a proper job of tying everything down once I get my stuff.

As for performance cooling...wow. I used everything on this thing for cooling. I have the gpu duct hooked up however a funny thing occurred when I used the gpu duct...the temps on my sapphire 4850 increased to over 50 degrees on idle. My card has never idled higher than 45 on idle and that's in warm room. I was getting really great temps during the times when I had the window open and the temps in my place went down. My gpu temps dropped down to levels that would normally be seen with a water set-up. I was getting just below 30 degrees which is a testament to the effectiveness of the larger fans in the HAF X. When I first did the build I did one thing different from the previous build in the Lian Li case. I had installed the sound card above the gpu in the lain li case. When I did this build I installed it below the gpu. Now with the gpu air duct and the 120 mm fan installed at full speed it was pushing the air into the video cards cooler I figured it was perhaps creating an air pocket that was trapping the hot air inside the video card creating the high temps. I opened the case up, removed the sound card and instaled it above the gpu and the air pocket was gone and the temps dropped to 40 at idle and I got a chilly 26 degrees with the window open about 16 feet away from the case. This thing pulls in cool air very well and I am very happy with it. Even the cpu temps on my E8400 are at 36 degrees and that's with the fan at 60% with an overclock of about 3.82 (stock is 3.0 ghz). This is the case to get. I actually had to modify my desk to get it to fit....cut the bottom shelf out and now it sits on the floor but it was worth it. I will post picks for the "rate my cables" thread as soon as I get it done up right.

As for the cooling I used almost everything. I just have to install a second top fan for cooling but other than that....I swapped out the 140 mm fan for a CM 120 mm fan that gives 69 cfm. It's a nice touch. I think I need a fan controller though....the fans that are hooked up to the motherboard only run at about 500 rpm's each....gotta get em up there.

anyone have trouble installing another fan at the top front of the case? I tried moving the top fan from it's rear position to the front, but had problems with it clearing the front panel cables, so I put it back in it's original position.

Does anyone know if any of the NZXT fan controller products can be used for the Cooler Master R4 fans? (I like to have a visual of the temp, etc.)

sorry haven't had the chance to mount a fan in that location but I will advise if I run into any problems. I might have an easier go of it since I removed the usb 3.0 cables, firewire and e-sata cables as well. Haven't got any use for them as of yet.

I believe some fan have a maximum watt intake, etc.. I'm not sure.

I'd really like to have the Sentry LX for my CM R4's.

or can people recommend me a different display fan controller for my HAF 932.
