I've heard this argument/complaint before with regards to the HAF X, and I think it depends on the MB board. I have a Gigabyte GA-X58A-UD5 and the clearence for the CPU bracket on that board is just fine...
Not that it makes a difference but the CPU Cooler is a Noctua NH-C12P SE14
Anyways the HAF X has very good airflow with it's 4 fans. The bottom fan and door fan suck air in while the top and rear push air out.
Plus the case has all sorts of vents. This case is extremely cool.
