All new cases shipped from Coolermaster should have the fix preinstalled, as for the haf-x problems the ones already floating around are just hit or miss. You won't be able to know unless you take the panel off and look chances are you want to add that 2nd 200mm fan anyways so might aswell look when you got it off. ^_^

I had earlier contacted CM sales manager in India and he had assured me that they have resolved this issue in all HAF X cases which comes to India.

when it comes to this problem and other similar grounding issues with other cm cases is better to order directly from them to insure you get one that has a the fix if one was done

none, runs smoothly. i did check the issue before i started building tho, and there's no problems with insulation. i recommend anyone buying this case to check that before they build, since it's really easy to do so, and can save a world of trouble.
it's also by no means a reason to skip on this case. today i built the system, and this case is pure heaven! the features and the finish are just amazing, i can't recommend it enough. the only gripe i had was that there weren't enough fan connectors on the mobo for all the case fans..

UPDATE: been running it for a week now, and the case is phenomenal. mind you, i upgraded from the storm sniper black, so in theory there wasn't much headroom for improvement. but the temps on this case are absolutely AMAZING!!
i'm getting idle/load 27-36 on CPU, and 31-62 on GPU. and it's QUIET! i only added one 120mm fan on the VGA bracket.

highly recommended.

got my hafX last week and was just checking the problem area. looks like that issue got fixed with a isolation plate between the cables and the soldering stuff.
sorry for the bad pics but i think the importent part is visibe

I also got HAF-X but now i read this
i got it from a online store in europe 2 months ago
Is there somewhere on a Rev number i can check without opening the panel
I am not good at this so dont want to touch anything before i get my pc buildt.

Should i just get the engineers that build the pc to remove the firewire cable
just to be sure
Problem is the engineer dont work with Coolermaster cases before
so they probaly have no idea about this

Is there any motherboard that work better with HAF-X to avoid problem like this
i havent buyed my mobo yet so i could go for anyone or does the mobo realy not matter at all?

A different motherboard isn't going to help. It's all in the way the panel is assembled. As far as I know the only way to tell is to open it up and look.
