Thank you so much for pointing this problem out.
I'm building a whole new system and bought a HAF X since the reviews were all amazing. However, it has been frying every mobo I tried on it. I'm about to return the 4th mobo to the store without knowing what the problem is.

I just took off the top lid and checked the front ports and indeed the LED fan cable seems to have a leak in it that might possibly be causing the shorts. I'll try insulating the cable with electric tape tomorrow when I get a new mobo and I'll reply again if it works.

*fingers crossed*

Damn, well at least you could return it to the store still. I always hate RMA'ing things, such a pain. Good luck, the case defect is most likely the problem though.

It worked! I insulated the leaked wire and just to make sure even disconnected the led completely. Now the machine works like a charm. No more frying, no more headaches.

This is definitely an issue CoolerMaster should look into because many people might have the problem but haven't turned on their LED yet. If by any chance they choose to turn it on, it might fry up their mobo completely.

I'm going to request a replacement front panel from CoolerMaster and see how it goes.
Once again thanks for pointing the issue out.

Of course it works. This was the reason why I started this topic because I had to point out on HAF X problems with burned mobo which happened to me and only by luck I discovered where is the problem, so I took few pictures and open this topic here to share my exeperience and to prevent same troubles to somebody else.

You are welcome guys...

So how do you prevent this from happening. I'm buying a HAF X soon and don't want to have these issues.

First you should check your front panel does all wires are correct and isolated (according to my pictures in first post). If some isolation is broken, you should isolate wires and I also put some styrofoam on top of front panel motherboard in order to be sure that sharp metal PINs don't touch wires from LED and front panel.

thanx sounds simple enough.when you say I must check that the wires are isolated, I'm assuming you mean insulated. Anyway I'll definitely check up on this.

Isolated, insulated - isn't it the same?
