Cooler Master HAF XM Mid Tower Overview
For the full review please visit http //www.hitechlegion.com/reviews/cases/18495 The Cooler Master HAF XM looks to take the best of the HAF X, and downgrade to a mid tower. The HAF XM still comes stocked with all of the high end features an enthusiast needs. Cooling with the HAF XM is no problem. Cooler Master has included a front 200mm intake LED fan, top 200mm fan, and rear 140mm exhaust fan. The front comes loaded with two X-Docks for easy hard drive swaps and access. The top is removable and exposes an area that can house a dual radiator, or various configurations of 200mm, 140mm, and 120mm fans. The top also includes a little tray with a rubber bottom for holding various things. Internally, the drive bays are tool free. The HAF XM has three 5.25" bays and six 3.5" bays. With the combination of the X-Docks and the internal bays, the HAF XM can total eight 3.5" hard drives. Hidden on the back of the motherboard tray is an optional 2.5" mount. With that, the HAF XM can also total nine 2.5" drives. The case has a bottom mount PSU and next to that is a cable shield to conceal extra wiring. The HAF XM motherboard tray comes with a full size cut out for heat sink swaps, and routing holse with rubber protectors. On the rear, there are liquid hose routing holes and 9 total expansion ports.
