    Specs:
    Intel i7 860 @ 4.0Ghz with an H50
    MSI Big Bang Fuzion
    A-Data 8GB DDR3
    PS Zephr 1000 watt
    Two XFX ATI 6870 in cross fire
    OCZ 60GB X2 SSD in Raid 0
    Two Seagate 500GB
    CM HAF 932/942 conversion series
    Windows 7 64 Bit

    Mods:
    Conversion of the HAF 932 to a HAF X by using some 942 plastic bezels. The HAF X and 932 both have the same chassis, I just cut some holes on the 932 to fit those plastic bezels from the 942. I also did some inside modding to fit two extra 200mm CM mega flows behind the optic drive bay. I painted my case both flat black and a bright metallic red on the inside.

    If you like more detail on how I converted the HAF 932 to a HAF X please go to my youtube channel.

    It helps with case temps at 32c, hard drives are at 29c and the video cards at 43c idle. The CPU isn't much of an improvement with idle at 40 to 42c overclocked at 4.0 GHz using a i7 860 it could also mean I need to adjust the voltage a bit.
    When I'm gaming with COH or Bad Company my case temps stay about the 30s, but my AMD 6870 cards without overclocking them are about 58c to 60c same with the CPU.
    Adding those fans does help with airflow, but overall performance isn't that great... advance water cooling is the best solution, I just hate having that clutter of tubing inside my case.

    Have you tried turning the side panel fan for intake instead of exhaust ? Nice look overall

    Already factory sleeved, but I know what you mean... thinking of getting something that hides those colors a bit better.

    Nils over at MDPC-X will treat you right! http://en.mdpc-x.com/mdpc-sleeve.htm
    He is in Germany but the shipping is surprisingly fast, 8-10 days.

    This is my fully sleeved rig.
