Today we are looking at the Cooler Master HAF XM mid tower case. Let me start by finishing this review - This case ROCKS! I have been building computers professionally and personally since the 80386 CPU days, so I have seen my share of cases. The old days of those hulking off-white 200lb monsters that had sharp edges, no fans, and were as tight as the tolerances on a racing engine are gone! I for one am very happy about this! The case design that Cooler Master has come up with for the HAF XM can really make building your own PC enjoyable and rewarding.

They didn't include a kitchen sink, and I'm pretty upset about that. However, it does appear they pretty much got everything else.
