from completed build The little box that could
I do really love this case, like I mentioned above this is a LAN box/console replacement, just being able to pick it up and toss it in the Pathfinder it great with the built in handles, construction is solid and it is a dream to build in with the separate levels. I removed the secondary hard drive cage and made a clear opening for cable storage and air flow from the noctua fans.

GPU Sag terrifies me. Seeing pre-builds @ my local frys and noticing that the cards are ~1-3 degrees slacked over annoys me more that it should. So I began my search last summer to find an atx case with a horizontal mobo config. What a surprising search - the market lacks a solid, enthusiast grade case for horizontal mobos. There was the Thermaltake core x5 and x9, but they are way larger than I needed them to be and I had no plans to build a custom water loop to take advantage of the space. I could lay the Corsair air 540 on its side but the PSU would be starved for air intake. Caselabs had 2 I considered but @ $400 I will build the damn thing myself. Plus 10 wks is a bit too long for me. So I kept my case from last summer as it had what I wanted - horizontal MOBO and two 5.25 expansion bays. Its technically a test bench but i think of it more as a lan box.
Oh its great btw, would definitely recommend - I'm working in dallas this summer (internship) and I go to school in austin and this case has handles for EZ transport.

Would give this thing 6 stars if I could. Honestly, 10 if I could. All the room you could ever want, hot swappable drives, and wiring under the tray means everything looks crisp and clutter free. It's a dream to keep cool, even without filling up the massive quantity of fans it supports. I would buy three of them if I could.

Case is not one of my favorites. Had to pick it because it fits under my desk drawers. Not really nice to work in since you have to remove everything to change something in the bottom compartment.

I bought the HAF a solid year before I even started the computer. I would have liked to go with a different case. Not to say that there is anything wrong with it, it was superb to work with and build, just a different taste preference.

from completed build Budget X99 Build (If there is such a thing)
Why I like it:
-Removable, horizontally mounted motherboard tray
-Easy to hide cables due to two chamber design
-Dimensions allow me to fit it on my desk
-Easy to transport due to the convenient and sturdy handles
What could be better:
-They could have put quieter front intake fans but no big deal as they can be replaced
-My motherboard's (asrock x99 extreme4) usb 3.0 header just so happens to align right next to the case's usb 3.0 front connector. This wouldn't have been a big deal if I had a means to tuck it away somewhere. The problem though is that it is too short and stiff to wrap it through anything and too long in that it sticks out in front of the 120 mm fans like a sore thumb. This is a really minor gripe though and for a lot of motherboards that dont have the 3.0 header in the front it won't even be an issue.

from completed build First Build, Almost Impractical, But Worth It
Not the best case for cable management, but provides ample cooling, and a unique layout. The removable drive bays are awesome, and almost everything is modular, for the most part. The few dust filters are a plus, but the mesh top option doesn't have a dust filter. The carrying handles are good, if you want to haul a 30 pound computer around. Wish there were more dust filters, but overall, not a bad case

Best case I've ever used. Easy to work in with plenty of room to assemble the components. All the sides come off and the motherboard mounting tray comes out, which makes installation a breeze. I elected to add more fans, but they were easy to install.

Not really your mainstream form factor. So it's not for everyone. Quite spacious, but bear in mind that if you use a very huge VGA like ZOTAC amp edition, you will not be able to install a radiator. The clearance between the end of the VGA to the wall of the casing is way too narrow. I was planning to do a push/pull on my rad, but unfortunately the gap between the MSI 1070 and the radiator is too narrow to fit additional fans. So in the end I did a pull configuration with fans attached to the other side of the wall (inside the front panel). 2 Hot swap HDD slots in the right side of the front panel, 2 more slots inside the casing under the motherboard at the left corner and 2 5.25" bay for DVD or blue ray in the left side of the front panel. Cable management proved to be quite tricky since you will need to hide the cable under the motherboard panel. And the only clearance to do that are from the sides having the side panels removed.
