    You will only need filters on your intake fans. Just search around, I do sort of remember a guide to making your own custom filters and what the best material is to use for max air flow.

    The Silent PC people say to use no filters, but keep your ventilation positive:

    Your fans have to work harder pulling air through filters; and a positive pressure blows the dust out.

    Hmm. Maybe you should filter your house instead. You know: stretch a pantyhose over the whole place.

    To be honest, any of the 5 1/4" fan controllers would work with the included fans. One could also get a 3 1/2" controller, and use the included adapter. :toast:

    The question is try finding a RED fan controller, they seem to not make them at all. There's a dump load of blue and green ones though. I'm making my own red led fan controller.

    Ah that makes sense:rockout::rockout::rockout:
    Yea, finding a red LED fan controller is virtually impossible to be honest.

    After searching for a bit, I did find THIS one, and one HERE.
    The first one is a 3 1/2" bay type, and the second one is a 5 1/4" bay type.

    Of course the biggest issue that I see, is neither of these are going to lock into the drive bay?

    For a 922 and 932 thread, the 922 is lacking in pics or whatever! ;) I'm stripping my 922 down, plan to paint it all black, hopefully I'll take some pics and it won't turn sour! I don't think I'm gonna drill the rivets out tho, not to keen on doing that (don't have the tools either) so I hope I'll do a good job masking the rest. Any tips would be cool.

    While waiting for my new i7 upgrade I decided to toss in my e8400 setup.

    This case is a dream to work with. There is only one problem I see with it, the mounting of the video card. The CM 932 uses some wierd locking mechanism to lock in the card and it doesn't work very well for my video card. The card needs to be screwed down securely, I think. As it is, the clips do not snap down into a locked position to hold the card in.

    Any thoughts on this? What am I missing here?

    Can't you just get rid of the clip in question and put in a screw? i don't know why but I don't quite trust these clips... I just get a feeling they can snap with little pressure. Anyways, thankfully the 922 doesn't have this problem! ;)

    Yea, I could eliminate the clip entirely I suppose but I was hoping I was doing it wrong and missing something.
    I hate to eliminate it if I am wrong. Hard to believe CM would miss something so basic like this.

    It's all about prep work. Give it a nice sanding and make sure you get several coats of primer before you paint.:toast:
