Well Bigtabs you know what I like and my HAF XM I have fitted with 1 x 200mm in the front - 2 x 200 mm in the top - 1 x 140 mm at the rear behind the LC cooler rad which has it's own push fan as well plus 2 x 140 mm side fans which give me more air flow than 1x200 mm fan.

I just am just really pleased with the width and depth too the height doesn't both me any. I modded the power and HDD lights to the front of the machine with blue LEDs as I like machine on the desktop and not near the floor as they are on top originally and red.
The only fault with this case is the PSU filter it requires removing the PSU to get it out so I have modded my machine by taking it out and making a removable filter on the outside using Velcro to keep it in place and it is a finer mesh filter than the rather limp original.

All Cooler masters and blue as you can see.

Well personally the choice is yours BT but this case is just the perfect one and I shall use again when I get around to building again for myself (addicted) or for someone else.


There are a lot of really nice cases and in all fairness probably better ones than this but at the price there is no way you can go past this one for size, quality build except for that PSU filter but that is easy fixed, and sheer versatility - the drop down side just sealed the deal for me and height was of no significant importance when buying I was after more depth and width

I have a MSI military class III and 3770K rig in a corsair 200R case. Inexpensive, plenty of airflow, watercolor ready and great cable management. Awesome case for the money. Here is the link from newegg to look at the specs:

HAF XM I promise you no disappointment and stacks of room and air flow the other HAF's don't cut it with me I am afraid.

It says mid tower but that is only the height - the width and depth knocks spots of the others as the width and depth are the measurements you need for fitting the larger GPU's and air coolers if you are going that way.
