Cougar Solution Chassis Review
     Mon, Apr 30 2012 | 7:49A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
After comparing the temperatures, the Solution might not be great for cooling with just the one rear fan that comes stock. The idles were about on par with everything else in its category but its load temps were pretty warm. With no fan blowing across the HDD bays, the load temps were impressively high on the HDD. It`s no superstar of cooling but it doesn`t roast your gear either. The case is cheap enough that buying a couple of fans to increase its performance won`t break the bank."

Thermaltake Massive23 GT Review
     Thu, Apr 26 2012 | 9:02A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Although laptop technology has improved dramatically over the last decade heat continues to be a problem for many laptops to cope with. Heat build-up in a laptop (as in any device) Can degrade both performance of the device and longevity of its components, and in laptops and notebook form factors can seriously effect battery life and processor and GPU capabilities degrading speed of operation and physically damaging components."

Cooler Master HAF XM Case Review @ Legit Reviews
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 11:31A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The Cooler Master HAF XM is impressive on every level. In past reviews I find at least one item on a case that is easily breakable. I didn`t feel this way at all about every part of this case. Innovations such as the X-DOCK feature and an SSD mount behind the motherboard tray are examples of how Cooler Master is thinking outside the box..."

Cooler Master HAF XM @ LanOC Reviews
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 10:28A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The topic of cleaning your computer out came up last week on our forums and it got me thinking about how often I really need to clean out my computer. As it turns out it?s not very often anymore. All because of improvements in case design like fan filters. You don?t really see them on low end cases yet but they have been slowly trickling down. At CES this year we had a chance to get our hands on one of Cooler Master?s upcoming chassis, the HAF XM. A mid-range case packed with the features we have come to love from their high end HAF line. Today we are going to dig into the final product and see how it came out."

CoolerMaster HAF XM Mid-Tower Chassis @ Bjorn3D

CoolerMaster has released a new chassis in the HAF line: the XM. Not quite a smaller version of the HAF X, this new case incorporates some of features from the X, along with some truly out-of-the-box thinking."

Cooler Master HAF XM Mid Tower Case Review @ ThinkComputers.org
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 4:59A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master?s HAF X full tower case was released about 2 years ago and since then it has been their premier full tower case. While full tower cases are great many people do not want a case that large or may not have room for it. For those who love all of the features of the HAF X Cooler Master has just released the HAF XM, which they say is ?the essence of a HAF X distilled into its purest form; a mid-tower enclosure?. This mid tower case features support for up to four 200mm fans, a latched side panel, two external hot swap X-Docks, 3-way SLI or CrossFire support and dust filters on every intake! Let?s jump right in and take a look!"

Cooler Master HAF XM Mid Tower @ Pro-Clockers
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 3:07A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Today, we will be taking a look at a new member to Cooler Master`s HAF family. That new member will be the HAF XM. A `budget` minded XM is a short on structure but tall on features and options. Some of these options and features you will not see on the older big brothers of the family. The HAF XM may just be the case you were looking for. Read on to find out why we say this."

Cooler Master HAF XM @ techPowerUp
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 2:16A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
Cooler Master aims to shrink the HAF X, offering a mid-tower sized variant by the name of HAF XM. Still featuring that rugged, wide and military look, we take the chassis apart to see if it still manages to offer the guts of a war machine, just like the original, or if its looks hide nothing but a bland interior."

Cooler Master HAF XM Computer Case @ Benchmark Reviews
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 2:06A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
At Benchmark Reviews, we have established that the main three items to look for in a computer case are price, functionality, and style. All three of these are vitality important for a case that will be taking up space in your home or office for the foreseeable future. None of them should be overlooked. As a gamer, I take a special interest in Full Tower cases because of the functionality they offer. But sometimes Full Tower cases are just too big to fit comfortably where they need to. Mid-Tower cases can provide a lot of the functionality of a Full Tower case but with the style that might be preferred, depending on the circumstance. It`s the balance of providing that functionality that often gets case manufacturers into trouble. Benchmark Reviews has Cooler Master`s new HAF XM case on hand and this article is dedicated to discovering if the famous HAF-X`s little brother holds true to the family tree."

NZXT Switch 810 Computer Case Review @ APH Networks
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 12:41A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
While a product`s success is ultimately determined by the product itself, it all starts off with one thing: The name. As I have discussed in my Kingston DataTraveler HyperX 3.0 64GB review last year, what a product is called already leaves a strong first impression. Being a person in electrical engineering living in the province of Alberta, the word switch can really be quite meaningful at this time of the year. For one thing, we are having an election in a few days, and unless something significant happens between now and April 23rd, the Wildrose Party is expected to unseat the Progressive Conservatives -- effectively eliminating its massive forty-one year reign in this province -- forming a new government. Secondly, with final exams rolling up the semester this week (Yes, I really should be studying right now), it is important to keep in mind that, at least for the digital electronics circuit class, transistors are essentially switches on a conceptual level. So whether we are thinking about switching out the government or using what are basically switches to crunch some ones and zeros, where does the NZXT Switch 810 fall into place? Is the not-so-hidden-message of switch to this chassis to house all your expensive combinations of billions of switches the right thing to do? Read on to find out!"

Cooler Master HAF XM Chassis Review
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 12:11A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
The idle temperatures were a bit disappointing. It was a bit warmer than most at idle but it did perform well under load. It is beginning to be more and more difficult to compare case thermal performance as it seems most companies have nailed down what works and what doesn`t. Only the outliers really stand out anymore and if it fits somewhere in between the lowest and highest it generally goes unnoticed. The HAF XM gets its moment in the spot light for the CPU load temperature. Showing up on the low end is rather impressive compared to the other cases listed. I`m happy to see this even if the chipset on the other hand is a little toasty. However, the only cases that aren`t a bit warm on this graph are those with fans included on the side. Perhaps adding a couple of fans would help? Overall, it`s all good."

Cooler Master HAF XM Mid Tower Review @ Hi Tech Legion
     Tue, Apr 24 2012 | 12:01A | Cases | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
CM takes the best of the HAF X, and shrinks to mid tower size. The HAF XM comes stocked with all of the high end features an enthusiast needs. Cooling with the HAF XM is no problem. Cooler Master has included a front 200mm intake LED fan, top 200mm fan, and rear 140mm exhaust fan. The front comes loaded with two X-Docks for easy hard drive swaps and access. The top is removable and exposes an area that can house a dual radiator, or various configurations of 200mm, 140mm, and 120mm fans. The top also includes a little tray with a rubber bottom for holding various things. Internally, the drive bays are tool free. The HAF XM has three 5.25 bays and six 3.5 bays. ///"
