You seem to be the last person who got the HAF X in the Lebanese market, because ever since you got your rig, me and some friends just couldn't find it anywhere!

Grrr!
I actually don't want a HAF X, I am looking for a HAF 922 with a black interior. Because I move my rig a lot and I can't use a tower.

Re: Post your rig

What do you mean by move your rig alot? Do you carry it outside your home or do you move it to several locations at home? The HAFX is definitely the case you wouldn't go with if you need to take it outside. But if you just need to relocate it inside your house, then the HAFX is ok. The wheels are sturdy yet move flexibly, a must have feature for every Full ATX case. The Cooler Master Storm Trooper seem awsome, but does not have that Hummer H1 look

Re: Post your rig

I move my rig back and forth from home to house in the mountains every weekend, sometimes we gather up and have LAN parties at some friend's house and I always remove my rig and set up a clients PC if my other screen is in use with another client's PC. Isn't the storm trooper a Full Tower as well ? I was thinking of the CM Storm Enforcer. Seems to be pretty good.

Congrats on your rig man, and I am very interested in knowing where you got that HAF X from, and how much it cost if possible.

Will post pics of my own rig soon as well, when i manage to find it under the piles of papers and electronic waste

Re: Post your rig

Thanks Khaled. I got the HAF X from PC&Parts; but that was a long time ago (perhaps 1 year ago?). Don't remember the price but I think it was close to 300$.

Virgin or any CD shops might have them. But they cost like 120$ if you put like 150$ on top  of that, you can get a netbook and make a wireless receiver or something.

AvoK95, i mean the small USB receiver that you use to connect a wireless xbox controller to the PC

They cost like 20$, but bundled with a controller it's like 70$ :/

Avo please post your temps with the current OC at idle and with load. I want to see how bad is my CPU cooler. Hope that H80 come as soon as possible. Thanks!

Case closed : Idles at 42 on hottest core and at 91 stressed on prime95 at Small FFTs
Case open   : dles at  40 on hottest core and at 90 stressed on prime95 at Small FFTs

Remember that my processor is moded, meaning I have changed the stock thermal paste from under the CPU IHS and replaced it with Arctic MX4 giving me 15 degree cooler temps, and even at that they run really really hot.

All 4 of my fans were at 100%
