Overall and FV

Cooler Master set out to make a mid-tower version of the HAF X with the HAF XM and I think in that they were very successful. What I find even more impressive is they have managed to fill the gap between the budget cases and the ultra-high end cases that we all drool after. The HAF XM can literally fit almost anything you throw at it, all the while having some of the easiest wire management we have ever seen because of the gargantuan amount of space behind the motherboard tray. You even end up with built in hot swap bays, support for USB 3.0, and full dust filter coverage to keep everything clean inside. What is most impressive is the HAF XM’s price, considering its feature set I would have expected it to be higher, but with a MSRP of $129 it should still be in the budget of most builds.

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.

So would this be considered a higher end case? I just don't see any type of filter system for the large amount of air (containing dust) that's coming into the case...

every intake fan has a filter on it

this is considering a mid range in price, but it does have the filters we spoke about
