The Cooler Master HAF 700 is one of the craziest cases to ever exist.. I HAF to build a PC in it.

It honestly looks like someone saw rgb ram and just leaned hard on the design. Rgb appeals to many people so I get why this exists, never going to buy one though

Current Config:

Spoiler

R5 2600X @4.1ghz all core, 16GB Patriot 3200mhz, 1TB XPG SX8200 Pro nvme, RTX 2070 Duke, CM Elite 110 mitx, pair of KRK Rokit 6 monitors with 10in sub, BenQ TH671ST projector for 150" screen. 

MSI Prestige 14 with too many cooling mods to list out (it's quiet now)

Imagine how many RPi Compute Modules clusters you can fit inside that.

 

In any case (s'cuse the pun 😛 ), it  has RGB, meaning I won't touch it with a barge pole 💩

Mixed thoughts here. It seems like an impressive chassis. But as someone who has fond nostalgic feelings for the original HAF line of cases (my first build was in one), I'm not sure I feel this is a "worthy" successor. Apart from the shape of the vent cutouts on the back side, I don't see any real inspiration from the old HAF designs here; those were always brutalist, utilitarian affairs even by the aesthetic standards of that era. I think they should have branded this as a Cosmos if it's just supposed to be the biggest, flashiest, most-no-compromises case they've got.  

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

I feel like this is the first case Cooler Master releases that actually replaces the HAF X I bought in 2010. It only took 12 years.

I would agree.  My first case was a COSMOS 1000, I miss that thing.

cool, but could be cooler. (also lighter and colder?)

why does the display have to "ruin" the front?

Couldn't it just also be on the "wide side" or like with others on the CPU cooler if it would go on top of the desk.

it must be the fact that its wider, but it seems that the 25kg of this case is more manageable then my lighter 19kg 900D. But i'd really like to see a full custom loop in one of these once the production runs come out, wonders if all the spots could handle radiators.

1 case 13 fans impresses LMG huh???

 

Try one case 30 fans... because that's exactly what I've got going on in my CaseLabs Mercury S8. Heck, it's YELLOW too.

 

Truth be told CaseLabs is sadly no more, but their cases were radical for more than one reason. First and foremost was their cutomizability with pedestal add-ons top and bottom, different side panels and interior stuff like fan mounts and HDD caddies. Second was the fact that it all came flat packed and you would assemble it yourself screwing it all together - it was basically LEGO for the PC enthusiast and I loved the experience. Third, the sheer size of cases they offered from tiny mITX sized cases all the way to the behemoth TX10. THAT THING was a sight to behold, more so when you got a custom powder coated one tricked out with "dual dual" Xeon boards in there and FOUR separate, independent water cooling loops. Just the pedestal alone for the TX10 could fit 16+ fans in it with dual 80mm thick 480 rads.

 

One opportunity Cooler Master missed with this case was the option for a 2nd PSU mount - stack that thing with water cooled graphics cards and a single 1600W unit may not be enough when single cards now are pushing 450W+ easy with overclocks. Similarly if you also have high amperage fans and a bunch of mechanical hard drives in the mix.

 

Oh yeah, and as far as that 55lbs weight - my fully stacked S8 weighs MORE than my GF (and she's a slim 70lbs) Apple's "optional" $700 casters are indeed beyond laughable when you just look at a TX10. The heavy duty casters on that thing were a requirement!!!

Glad to see one featured here in .. 2022!

I had a Coolermaster case before and it was terrible. As to this one, it's a nice design but way too much RGB for my liking.

Cooler Master sucks. I wouldn't buy anything that you could ever possibly need support from them for. I've been waiting over 2 weeks for even just an initial response to my RMA ticket and others are experiencing similar times.
