I read many reviews of cooler master HAF X and didn't saw a single negetive review.(Please provide link if there are any) But to my surprise I didn't saw anyone herd recommending that to anyone and I didn't saw it in PC Config thread even for higher end gaming rigs. So here comes the question Is it not worth its price or are there any drawbacks in this rig ?? Whats your take on this product.

The HAF X is the big brother of the 932. My brother owns a 932 its huge, rock solid, good airflow, awesome monsterous looks. The series could be expensive but its totally worth the price. The case itself is very stable he uses it as a chair or a ladder. The X supports USB 3.0. If you want to be one of the elite HAF users then it is a great buy. Although there are cheaper cases performing equal or better to the HAF X, but they might not be as durable as the HAF X is.

To be honest I don't think that anything comes to comparison with this cabby at that price point. Although I am not much in this so can't really say much. As much as I have seen its the best.

many are touting the Xigmatek Elysium as a worthy contender to the HAF-X now....some say the HAF-X has finally got a competitor now.

There are few cabinets, which are good with their own purpose.

1). Lan Boy : Costs 13k approx. A complete handy Cabinet with good looks & colors. Completely one can diassemble it & its a must for LAN Parties or BYOC fans.

2). Silverstone Raven: Not easily available [online buy is the only option]. Matte Finish & awesome looks, but bad air flow compared to HAF 932 or X.

3). Corsair Obsidian 800D: Costs 13k, not easily available at next door shop. But really meant for some gr8 OCers with Custom H20 machines.

4). HAF X: Best in its own terms. One of the best affordable Full Towers atm, but cheap build just like HAF 932.

5). NZXT Phantom: Not available easily, priced at 8k online & at the price point of view, no one can beat this. But not a good option for Custom H20, otherwise its rules....

BMG ftw!!
NZXT Phantom beats HAF X in terms of their respective price and it is also better value for money with almost all hthe components are same +inbuilt fan controller -front USB3.0 ports.

^^ well, Phantom is plasticky. HAF X is better. :p I'm not taking away anything from NZXT in the mid-tower segment though. If I'll build a config for myself, it will have NZXT Tempest Evo and if I'll build a config for my sister, it'll have Gamma.

imho, PSU and Cabinet are the only components which are 'future-proof' in the true sense. Full-tower cabinets are a one time investment and it's highly unlikely that you'll outgrow them. You never really change your cabinets every year or two. If you feel the need of such cabinet, it is completely worth it.

Moreover, I see some people cramp up gigantic coolers like Noctua NH-D14 in their mid-tower or cheaper cabinets. They shouldn't really be doing that.

Maybe because of its extra large size because even a ATX setup looks like a baby in this one also cooler masters are very dominant in Indian market.

Right off the assembly line
yeah! HAF X is superbly built and can be termed as one of the best in its price point. I am using it :))
