    Following the overwhelming success of the full tower HAF 932, Cooler Master extends the HAF (High Airflow Flow) line to a mid tower in the HAF 922. This beastly machine comes with rugged looks, massive air flow cooling and the Cooler Master trademark interior. Building the dream machine is now well within reach.

    Killer Looks
    HAF 922 makes no secret for potentially transforming all your high-end hardware components into a raging machine. It possesses a muscular and beast-like design that signifies performance without even opening up the system. Intimidating style and the performance makes it a killer combination.

    Unrestrained Airflow & Thermal
    HAF 922 supports up to seven fans in total, including three of those that support 200 mm fan (which are swappable for smaller 120 mm or 140 mm fans) for maximum airflow while maintaining a quiet environment. An independent air intake has been designed for a bottom-mounted PSU for easy installation and improved heat management. For overclockers, this chassis even supports liquid cooling set-ups with retaining holes in the back and room for an internally installed radiator.

    Easy Installation & Upgradeability
    A well thought-out interior has become a trademark for Cooler Master chassis. Starting with a CPU cooler retaining hole that was first introduced in the ATCS 840, it allows for quick installation of CPU cooler without removing the motherboard. Unbeatable cable management makes for less clutter and system maintenance. Tool-free 5.25” and 3.5” drive bays for easy in-and-out. A 7+1 PCI slot for added expandability and a spacious interior to house all types of high-performance hardware.

    it's like a cross between a HAF and a Storm Sniper it has a lot of the Storm Sniper features ie it's motherboard tray, side panel configuration, hard drive rack, expansion slot covers, uses same SECC or anodized steel.

    yeah been waiting 2 months for it to come out. supposed to have a MSRP of $100 usd (at CeBIT). I still think this case blows away anything Antec has to offer.

    As someone who uses the NZXT Tempest for a htpc, I can see putting my desktop in a HAF 922...

    Finally, a cool-looking case that I don't need $250CAN for.

    Im loving it. As an owner of the HAF 932, I must say I like this, though I was hoping for the inside to be painted black. Coolermaster has some of the best screwless retention brackets/systems available today.

    Yeah thats a real bummer... no black interior.

    Looks like it has unnecessary space between the motherboard and the HDD drive bay though?

    Wow, looks like a amazing case! I like how a company is finally paying attention and seeing that people don;t like wires everywhere.

    Meaning what exactly?

    Yeah it seems it still has space for cables.

    One thing about the hole on the mobo tray so you dont have to remove the mobo to install HSF, that isnt true. You really do unless your mobo happens to hit perfectly over the hole and has a small plate. I had to on my Asus M3A32 MVP Deluxe Wi Fi AP board to put my water cooler on there and even the stock AMD HSF.

    The backplate on my board lines up perfectly (no joke) in the middle of that access hole in my CM Storm Sniper
