Cooler Master HAF XM Case Review

Upon opening the box you will immediately notice the industrial styled front panel buttons, a small opening with a rubber mat and two huge vents which support either 2x 200mm fans or a single 280mm radiator (2x140mm).

Both side panels have a extruded section which allows for additional cooling support via 2x 140mm fans. There is also additional space for cable management – much needed for users with cable extensions or a lot of unused cables that are stored out of the way behind the motherboard tray.

The front panel is impressively featured, sporting 2xUSB 2.0 slots, 2x USB 3.0 slots in addition to the standard headphone and microphone jacks. Close by is a hexagonal front fan LED toggle, with Power & Reset buttons.

Taking a closer look at the front intake ventilation, a large chromed Cooler Master logo is embedded into the mesh which hides a 200mm fan. This provides most of the airflow into the case while ensuring that the drives inside are adequately cooled.

Moving towards the rear of the case, we find three rubber grommets for water cooling support (though the middle hole is noticeably smaller than the other two). Below them is a vent with an internally mounted 140mm fan, however the mounting system also supports a 120mm variant should you want to swap it.
