CM has said when they get a MoBo Standard for 3.0 USB they will come up with a different hook up mechanism for HAF X owners.
Also you missed out on a few other very nice additions, such as the standoff tool and an in depth on the dual hot swap bay mechanism. Also some issues you would have come across if you'd used more GPUs (which ok for bench purposes I understand, but for an all out review...) is that the side duct has to be removed and repositioned when you get cards in the lower slots.
Overall you guys are the first I've seen to do a temp bench on the case. Thank you.

Nothing to stop us doing something like that in a separate article though (Best case for cooling multiple graphics cards) where we could look at a few of the best.

I'm also not getting the two missing quick release buttons even though the caddy has been stamped out to take them - just looks a bit unfinished to me and would have looked much better with all six there.
