      "With only a very few cases with anything close to the HAF's feature set and performance for this kind of money, the HAF X is very attractive for a variety of reasons."

      "At $200, the HAF is priced competitively given its feature set. It’s neither the roomiest nor the most polished case, but the High Air Flow moniker is well-deserved, and we appreciate the forward-thinking additions Cooler Master has made."

      "I found it very hard indeed to find a flaw with the case at all, in fact I can not personally say that I did. The Cooler Master HAF (High Air Flow) series has become one of, if not the most sought after cases on the market and this new addition to the Cooler Master HAF series is perhaps the best version yet. If you have need of High Air Flow for an Xtreme system, then you need the Cooler Master HAF X!"

      "The HAF-X, as the new flagship of the line, does not disappoint, and raises the bar on what a full tower enthusiast case should be. Any enthusiast in the market for a full tower case would have a hard time staying away from the obvious quality and innovations of the HAF-X."

      "The Cooler Master HAF X is a beast, and deserves beastly components. Put anything less than enthusiast components inside and you risk looking like one of the sad individuals you see slapping a wing and fart can on an automatic 2000 Honda Accord. If you want to build a Frankenstein's Monster with multi-GPU and the biggest coolers known to man, the HAF X will do that with ease."

With more airflow, updated features such as USB 3.0 support on the Front Panel and a design aesthetic that can only be called breathtaking, the HAF X case deserves the Editor’s Choice award."

      "Overall the HAF-X is an excellent case which fulfills the anticipation and demand. It has the right balance of construction, features and pricing that will tempt even budgeters to go for a top-end system. If you're going with a 4-SLI setup then you can't go wrong with the HAF-X."

      "I really like the addition of the front panel USB3 ports as well as ESATA (something the 800D which costs ~50% more does not have)......Overall, the case has certainly done its job well with some great features and what I would call value-adds at its price point."
