Cooler Master HAF X 942 overview

  • 1Description

The midnight black HAF X 942 Full Tower Desktop Case from Cooler Master is designed to house processors, motherboards, and multiple graphics cards. This tower case supports micro-ATX to XL-ATX sized motherboards for building a computer for personal or business use. To house all your drives, the HAF X 942 features six 5.25" bays. Two of the 5.25" bays can be used to house 2.5" SATA storage drives by using the SATA Dock. Access to the dock is done through the front 5.25" bay and allows access to the drives without removing the side panel. Five 3.5" storage drives can be added, which also supports 2.5" and 1.8" SSDs. To see inside the case, the side panel features a window.

HAF stands for High-Air-Flow, which is why Cooler Master provides four large-sized fans. An air duct allows for extra cooling by funneling cool air from the front fan directly to the card. Liquid cooling is also supported by installing the radiator on the top or back of the case.

This case also has expansion slots for supporting up to nine PCI cards when using an XL-ATX motherboard. For connecting your devices, the I/O panel has various connections such as USB 3.0, eSATA, FireWire and more. To easily move this case with all your PC components, removable wheels are included.

    Cooler Master HAF X 942 reviews

    HAF X 942 Full Tower Desktop Case (Midnight Black) is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from The King of Full Tower Cases!! This baby has it all! +Durable paint, inside and out +Tons of room +Tons of air flow +Looks like serious hardware and not a space alien +Cable management +Did I say airflow? My temps don't change regardless of fan speed--this thing has air flow to spare! +WHEELS!!! Few things that could be changed: -some creativity is need for radiators larger than 240mm -the plexiglass window is scratch prone (as all plexiglass is) -the wheels aren't of the greatest quality, but not many cases have wheels at all!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots Of Room This is my first full tower case.. and it's a biggy! Lots of cooling and room to work. A ton of slots also. Big plus that there are provisions for SSD drives so no need to by an adapter to fit SSD in this case

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from HUGE! It's huge! I didn't think it would be this large but I'm not complaining. It's not like I'm taking this with me everywhere I go. It stays in once place. Plenty of room to work and upgrade, etc. Design is nice, clean, black with some red. If I have to complain, probably the fans that came with it, it's a little loud. You can always replace them but other than that, I really like this case. It's the biggest one I've ever owned. Shipping box came a little damaged but didn't effect the actual case so it's all good.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome Case! What can I say that hasn't been said elsewhere. Not much. For me, this case is an upgrade from the excellent HAF-932. I love the space in this beast. My extended ATX board fits with room to spare. The extras are nice too (video card holder and fan bracket). The wheels are nice too, but don't try rolling on carpet. I replaced my top fan with two red led 200mm as well as the side fan. This case looks so cool lit up in red and everything stays nice and cool. No need for me to use water cooling. Thanks to B&H for having this available when I wanted it. Your shipping is lightning fast, unlike a mainstream DHL using company we all know in Jersey where orders take 12 days to get to the next state down. I've only used BH for photo equipment, but nice to know they sell quality PC stuff as well.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for. And in this case you pay for a case built like a tank. It is heavy and it is big. But my god it comes with plenty of room to work with and all the bells and whistles you would expect. All total it probably took me three hours to install everything into the case and run my wiring the way I want it. The fans are ultra quiet and the lighting is a nice touch. In fact, if the fans make any noise above a whisper, you have a bad fan and need to get it replaced. The Good, the bad, and the Neutral The Good Quiet fans, lots of room. The Bad Heavy. You may need some extensions on your cabling even with the existing cable slots. The neutral The fans come with 3 pin connectors. So if your motherboard uses 4 pins you may want to order replacement fans or converter cables. The fans do come with converter cables to switch them to the older 4 pin power connector that is used on older style PATA hard drives and optic disk players. This is also a case you want to give lots of room to. It is not a case I would put into a cabinet. It wants lots of airflow which will be restricted in a computer cabinet even if it fits inside.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Improvement This case is a bit bigger than it's former model. I don't know of the fans in the former, but my computer builder had me purchase new fans that ran better than the fans coming with this case so I lost the glowing front red fan. But the stats seem the same to me, so I think they improved the fans that came with the tower, too. The top has space for two fans and the case comes with one so you might think of adding another as we did with this build.
