 Cooler Master's new HAF-X
I am not much of a fan of the general, run of the mill Cooler Master cases, though the Cosmos was a nice one back in the day :) However, after reading the review of their new HAF-X (HAF=High Air Flow) case by Guru 3D, I'd have to say that this case has some ENORMOUS capabilities. If I weren't such a snoot about Silverstone cases, I'd really consider this case for my next build! There is definitely room for water-cooling, which is indeed a must-have!! :handgestures-thumbup: :handgestures-thumbup:

Bit old, but yeah it's a solid case layout/performance wise. Looks aren't totally my cup of tea, but it's better than the original HAF.

What do you mean "run-of-the-mill"?;)

I like it. It's a goddam wind tunnel. My GTX 480 will appreciate it.

When I said "run-of-the-mill", I meant their cheapo cases ... not the HAF or Cosmos ... those are top-of-the-line ... :handgestures-thumbup:

I really like this case. The 800D has more room but it cooled like crap. Wait a minute. I didnt cool.
Yep, she's a keeper thus far. It's quiet for the amount fans it will hold. The black int. also sold me. Nice cable management. But it won't bring me a Dr. Pepper.

You'll notice that the first one I pointed him to was EK ...

I only included the Swiftech/eVGA water block for Comixion's sense of brand loyalty ... besides, if it says eVGA on it, he'll be happy!
