    i love it replaced the 230mm fans with LOTS of red led 120mm coolermaster fans rated at 20db 90cfm and couldnt be happier

    cable management is a breeze you dont even have to try at all

    easily fits the biggest baddest hardware u can get :toast:

    welcome to the Haf club

    i can describe anything u need in better detail just ask

    I once built a computer for a customer using a HAF 922. It's not the 932, but it was still pretty great. Comparing it to Antec cases, it was a lot easier to setup and the alignment was better, but overall Antec cases were sturdier and seemed to have better airflow.

    Overall I love the case, and I'm sure the 932 is even better. You certainly can't go wrong with it!

    ive worked with the antec 300 and 900 and niether case comes close to the haf 922 or 932 sadly in terms of cooling or sturdyness there good cases but they dont compare to the 2 haf cases and the Haf tends to offer more then the antec camp and it dosent matter because he already bought the Haf 932 and its on its way
    and thanks brandon that was the mod i was talking about :toast:

    Love mine, though I would opt more for the mid-tower sized 922 than the 932 these days. Don't get me wrong, the case is sweet, quiet operation, good airflow, kickass and uber easy cable management, plenty of room, easy to tear into, but just so damn large when I didn't necessarily need all of that space...but all the stuff in my rig sure made an antec 900 cramped...though those antec are skinnier cases compared to these Cooler Master cases. That's another thing I do appreciate is the extra width they provide on the side panels and overall dimensions. I'll probably have the 932 for a long, long time unless I decide to sell it for a 922 or similar, but at this point I have 0 complaints with it. Amazing case.

    Best case I've ever worked with and I've been modding for over a decade.

    If you are considering a serious watercooling setup, I can't think of any better. There aren't many cases out there that will comfortably fit a 3x120mm rad on the inside.

    Pros: It's big, easy to work with and very user freindly... superb cable management, serious airflow and quiet.
    Cons: It's big. Should be black on the inside.

    I wasn't crazy about the window either, but I'm leaving it alone. It grew on me.

    theres an easy way around it i considered it myself stretch the window down further but leave enough room at the bottom of the case for 3 120mm fans to stretch across the bottom and since heatrises the air goes in and will get sucked into the gpus etc so its still win win granted nothing beats mounting 4 120mm 90cfm fans on the side of your case and 3 more on top + the 140mm in back and the 230mm up front :roll:

    Why are you asking for opinions on something AFTER you bought it? :laugh:

    Plenty of HAF owners love em. Have fun.

    IMO, the huge side fan blowing directly at the chipset, CPU and video card is optimal - lots of dynamic fresh air right where you need it most.

    I don't think you'd lose either way, though.

    well i replaced the 230mm with 4 120mms in a square patern went from 75cfm spread across everything to over 360cfm spread on all items in the case with 230mm pulling air in over the hdds the 140 in back exhausts air and 2 120mm 90cfms up top suck air out while 1 on top sucks air down in aimed toward the hdd bay / 5.25inch bays

    525cfm overall intake 300cfm exhaust over all

    not counting the cpu fan as its only purpose is to squeeze air through the heatsink anyway there were 2 fans but the rubber band holding one on snapped it slid down a few inches caught the heatsink and broke a blade so i need to replace that eventually
