Corsair, how could you? This case is ugly.

I certainly wouldn't call it ugly... It's very understated, just the way I like em.

Case appearane is always subjective. Some find them fugly, some love them. I still cannot understand how anyone can own a HAF-X. it's down there in the stinking pile of faeces as the Antec LANboy Air.

Nice to see a solid mid-range case from Corsair. I like what they have done with their cases and several things that they did with the 800D (still beaming owner here) have cropped up in other brand' cases ever since.

Haf X and the LBA make me physically sick whenever I see one.

Sorry, I just can't see past my Cooler master CM60 II.

The main thing that'd stop me recommending this case to friends would be the lack of fan filters. Looks very nice though.

I saw a few at the I-series and had to stop myself telling the owners off for being such a muppet.

I just stopped using my corsair 600t in favour of a HAF X, the cooling performance of the 600 was very poor.

I like the dual 120mm intakes at the fron but is the hdd cage removable?

was looking for opinions on the noise...looks like i just need to pony up for the ft02

I get it that looks are subjective but the top looks unfinished, the front looks like a Cooler Master you can get for half the price, and the cooling isn't all that good either (compare it to the Antec 100 which is quite a bit less).

Other than the internals, which seem decent, it seems like a half baked attempt to penetrate the lower end. Which is great, but I think they could have done better.

Is that a handle on the top?

Because HAF cases are excellent at cooling, quiet, and great value for money.

There's also a single 129/140mm mount on the rear of the case

You got some mighty strange fans going on there :P
