Since I had burned mobo together with my DV OUT on camcorder, CoolerMaster offered me to order any article from their products for free. This is really good move from CoolerMaster and I will continue to buy their products since they acted very fair towards me... BRAVO COOLERMASTER!!! applaud.gifcheers.gif

I'm glad CM addressed that, but you hae a bad port on your camcorder, and now a faulty motherboard and all they do is offer you a free product of theirs? Seems a little one sided, but at least they are did what they did Bravo CM!

Ok i contacted Coolermaster and gave them my HAF-X lot number
they already knew about the issue so i didnt have to explain much

They said the HAF-X cases with problems are the one with Lot number range from
RC942KKN11103301208 to RC942KKN11103803120
and that mine Lot number seem to be fine since is newer

But they still insisted i remove the top panel from the case and check if there is protection on the I/O PCB of the case

so i guess the serial number check is not 100% sure but can be useful for someone buying HAF-X

they gave me some photos
of how fixed HAF-X should look

ON the next photo it seem the Fixed version should have this white pieze atached to it or something
http://i54.tinypic.com/15i3ntf.jpg

and some more

this photo apearently show how its been fixed

Here we again see that protection plate see red arrow

Anyway To be sure i just ask the engineer to remove the Firewire cable
since i conect camera by USB and SD cards
so I will be 100% safe if firewire cable is removed right?

So, is the isolation plate just a bit of flimsy bit of plastic, or is it a solid piece of plastic board? Would like to know what to look for ; )

My LED fan stays on, haven't had any problems with mine. Hopefully it was an isolated incident, and it was very awesome of coolermaster to send you that new piece and allow you to pick somthin nifty from there store.

Is this still an issue? (ie. do I need to check it before I build my system or is it safe to assume my new case isn't affected?) Thanks.

Depends. Just because you just got it doesn't mean it isn't old stock that still had the issue. I would check it to make sure. A few minutes before you build it could save you a LOT of money and time.

Thanks for the reply. I'll go ahead and check the panel to be sure.

Would you mind posting a pic of your isolation plate so I can see what revised models should look like? Hard to tell from current photos if the fix is a solid piece of material, or an almost paper like covering, thank you.

hi guys

I'm having simular issues myself and i'm not sure what it is. my system is a haf-x with coolermaster gold 1200w powersupply. have already replaced PSU twice with same results. have checked all parts and seem to be good. (rampage III, intel 990x with 2 GTX580's with corsair 1600mhz 4g sticks.

system keeps powering off, and getting worse and worse. red cpu led is on. sometimes it sits their with the fans on and no post.

To verify if its the front pannel connectors playing up, should i make sure nothing towards the front of the case is connected at all? how would i troubleshoot such a wierd issue like this? voltage is stock, no overclocking, have h70 watercooler.

I pulled mine from my HAF X to inspect the plastic that was put on it. I examined it and noticed that some of the metal actually is beginning to poke through the plastic. I added an extra layer of electric tape for now to take care of the issue but I might just send up pulling the ship from my case. The case adds alot of extra wires within the case in my opinion which just makes it poor for wire management. My motherboard has USB 3.0 and ESATA slots on the back anyways so I don't really need it.
