Cooler Master HAF XM Case – External

The HAF XM is a chunky, mid tower case which is available in black, with or without a side window. Our sample is the windowless version and starting with the front we see that it uses a mesh design with plastic sections running down the sides and a steel body. The front of the case pops off without the need for tools and behind it is a 20cm intake fan with red LEDs. Also visible here are the two SATA hot swap bays.

In terms of measurements the HAF XM is 252×530.5x579mm (W,H,D) and weighs approximately 10.5kg.

At the top of the case we find a large power button and two smaller buttons. The left is for case lighting and the right for reset. Beneath these are 2x USB 2.0, 3.5mm audio and 2x USB 3.0. Also shown above is a tray, behind the power button, where we can place items and this is lined with rubber to make it non-slip.

Further back on the top surface we have a removable cover which locks in place via a screw at the rear of the case. When removed we see that this cover sits above a 20cm fan with space for 2x 12/14cm models as alternatives.

Looking round to the back of the case we find a layout which is reasonably standard. At the top are three wiring/tubing holes with rubber covers and beneath them, to the right of the IO location is a 14cm fan. Further down we have the PCIe slots with 8 in the main section and one additional bracket to the side for use with items such as fan controllers. Then down at the bottom is our PSU location.

Each side panel on the HAF XM has an expanded section, on the left this provides space for 200mm fan or 2x14cm fans. On the right this chamber allows us to wire our case in a tidy manner. Then back round at the left we can see that the release mechanism for this panel which is a pull handle.

At the base of the case are four feet with rubber bases and between the back two is our PSU intake.
