For the year 2012 Cooler Master is furthering it’s endeavor to create the ultimate High Air Flow chassis for all gaming and computer enthusiasts alike. Yes, I am talking about the Cooler Master HAF series of computer cases. From the beginning the Cooler Master HAF series has proven to be a very popular case amongst gaming and computer enthusiasts. Personally, the HAF X was my favorite of the HAF series, and as luck would have it, the HAF X has spawned forth a new mid tower in 2012, the Cooler Master HAF XM Computer Case. We have the pleasure of giving you a good look at the newest member of the Cooler Master HAF series cases. So, let’s get to it, shall we?
Cooler Master always does a great job of showcasing it’s products on the retail package that is designs for each enclosure and the HAF XM retail box is no exception. You can get plenty of details straight from the box. However, the box is not just for pretty pictures or specifications, it is also very well made and fairly thick to protect the treasure that it contains inside. Inside the box the case is wrapped with a thick plastic bag to protect the finish and then packed in thick styrofoam end caps to keep it from moving around any to prevent damage from the outside.
