Cooler Master’s HAF X full tower case was released about 2 years ago and since then it has been their premier full tower case. While full tower cases are great many people do not want a case that large or may not have room for it. For those who love all of the features of the HAF X Cooler Master has just released the HAF XM, which they say is “the essence of a HAF X distilled into its purest form; a mid-tower enclosure”. This mid tower case features support for up to four 200mm fans, a latched side panel, two external hot swap X-Docks, 3-way SLI or CrossFire support and dust filters on every intake! Let’s jump right in and take a look!
