    Very happy with new case


    Hey everyone.

    Just upgraded the core components to my rig (case, MOBO, CPU, RAM), and I can't help but express my satisfaction with the Cooler Master HAF XM case I bought. Anybody else here using a HAF? Since I started building my own systems, I only owned one other case before this, so it would be weird to say "it's the best case I ever owned," but I think I definitely like it better than my first one (although it wasn't bad).

    Just love the look, the room, the ease with which I was able to install everything in it.

    You know what's funny, I never really routed my cables behind the motherboard tray before, so this concept was a bit new to me. It didn't dawn on me until very late in the whole assembly process that the cables to the hard drives go in the back of the case ... otherwise they would stick out the side, and I couldn't put the side panel on.

    Always learning.

    Hello Erich,

    Congratulations on the new system. It's sounds like you had a ton of fun building it. Enjoy mate.

    Indeed I did, but it's also fraught with anxiety as well (such a delicate procedure, not to mention worrying that all the parts work).
