Cooler Master HAF X942 Full Tower Case

A quick reminder: the HAF in Cooler Master HAF cases stands for High Air Flow. When designing the HAF range, Cooler Master engineers were told to keep two things in mind: rugged looks and massive air cooling.

The HAF 912 became a class leader in the Mid Tower category. Cooler Master’s next target was the Full Tower category. And this is where the HAF X942 steps up to the challenge.

The Cooler Master HAF X942 is a full tower case, designed for big motherboards, full size graphics cards and the hottest CPUs. 4 gigantic fans create a massive airflow, 3 of the fans being 200mm in diameter and one being 230mm – one of the biggest case fans in the business. It also features an air duct to move even more air over graphics cards.
