No matter how quiet the 10+ 120mm fans are they will still produce more noise and perhaps the same airflow as the 230mm fans.

I realize most of you are not going to mount the power supply up top or change stock fans but the whole point of this guide was to squeeze every little bit of cooling out of the HAF 932 there is nothing wrong with having good air flow in a liquid cooling setup either.

No matter how quiet the 10+ 120mm fans are they will still produce more noise and perhaps the same airflow as the 230mm fans.
yes but changing the fans will provide more aerial coverage and pressure, some people have already done this at XtremeSystems and OCN.

In any case you MAY all be happy to learn that in around a month time there will be a Cooler Master HAF Mini case...

I saw the haf mini.. I don't like it either.. I mean, if they just cut the bottom off, yea cool. But they made it thinner and not as wide..

I eyeballed the HAF 922 and these are the changes from the 932 to 922.

* mid tower
* front bezel is altered doesn't have mesh on the sides
* 5x 5.25" drive bays instead of 6x
* 2x usb 2.0 ports instead of 4x
* no top window on side panel
* no firewire port
* side panel config is similar to Storm Sniper you can mount 1x 200mm fan (HAF 922 only supports 200mm not 230mm) or 2x 120mm fan
* no ventilation on right side panel
* can replace 200mm exhaust with only 2x 120mm not 3x because they removed fillport and radiator support
* uses the Storm Sniper expansion slot covers
* uses an improved version of the Storm Sniper "Storm Guard" security slot
* uses Storm Sniper motherboard tray
* uses Storm Sniper hard drive cage which is similar to the HAF 932 but the perforated holes are different, the HAF 932 has 7 sets of square holes. the Storm Sniper and HAF 922 have 6 sets of round holes
* the steel looks like SGCC or anodized like the Storm Sniper
supposed to have a MSRP of $100 or so which isn't bad.

I bought my case from a guy locally that advertised it on Craigs List.....it was about a onth old and his complaint was that it was too dusty.....

he asked how i wanted it fan wise since he had replaced the side and top fans with 120mm Red LED units i think there were like 9 in total....The case was super loud with all of the fans running and he liked to hear his fans so that was his reasoning behind setting it up that way....i opted to start with the stock fans and i added a red LED 120 at the bottom which in my opinion is the loudest fan in the case when running at speed....

as far as fan controllers i dont know if i did something wrong or not but my NZXT will not control the fan speeds on the 230mm fans only on the 120 and 140mm ones...

Question....the HAF fans in stock configuration are creating positive or Negative case pressure?


Also i like the HAF mini for a simple rig and if i didnt do that Rangers theme build for my wife i would buy her one when they came out....i agree that its not as sinister looking as the big HAF but it is cool....

of course the case is going to be dusty. what kind of LED fans were they? generally LED fans are not very good because the manufactures usually sacrifice performance over LED it's a cost issue, LED fans that perform well cost more I don't think the guy you purchased it from spent that much on 9 Fans. might have to do with the wattage of the fan controller I know the 200mm fan on the Antec cases needs some power to startup and it gives some fan controllers problems. HAF 932 comes Positive Pressure.

I'm considering this case...I don't need to replace my 900, it's been a trusty case for a long time now. And I would like to have a case with filters, but not required...I'd definately appreciate easier and improved cable management. This case is just cool as hell though, I'd like to see would be completely painted chassis from the factory, but hey it's not that big of a deal! If it was I would've painted my 900's interior years ago!

But another case I was looking at is the Silverstone Raven RV01 ( http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163135 )

I like the raven because of how it's ventilation system operates. The MB is turned 90 degrees so the add in cards exhaust upwards. The case has intake filters, 2x180mm fans in the mid-bottom area, bottom mounted PSU, so-so cable management from the looks of it tho. But I do like the idea of it tbh, I think it'd do very well airflow/cooling-wise. But price is what's killing me atm, I can't justify 200 bucks on a case...so the Raven is all but out of the runner up position. The HAF is 150 on the 'egg, I will probably hold out for a sale. This thread has given me some good insights though, how is cooling performance compared to an Antec900? Anyone do a direct transplant from a 900 to a HAF932?

I might be joining this club, dunno what I'd do with the 900...probably sell it lol! I'm not 100% set on the HAF yet, but it's definately under strong consideration if I decide to replace the 900.

:toast:

Edit: How much room does this case provide behind the MB tray? My PC P&C 750 has a ton of cables I hide in my 900 by moving the lower fan/hdd bay up one slot, giving me a 5.25 bay area to stuff the extra cables I don't use, which is quite a lot tbh...I could see that being a huge pain...

Edit II: Looks like Ghost28 has the same PSU, just red and it looks like he pulled it off just fine with all those cables! :D

Hi to all HAF932 club members :toast:
-----
@ Kurash

HAF932 have a lot room between Mobo try and (back)side panel
here is a pic
http://www.techpowerup.com/gallery/2089/__14.jpg

(more my case pic. http://www.techpowerup.com/gallery/2089.html )
it wasn't easy to setup and shoot that scene :) without an assistance,
but i try to show that there is approx 25mm space (+ 5mm)
what you get between the 'extrusions ?' on sidepanel flat area
just consider that the most PSU's 24Pin (maincable) is 16-18mm by diameter
(a side note .. i had that same psu in Antec P182 maincable routed behind mobo try,
i had much more pressure to back sidepanel when closing it )
well it´s for me hard to describe all this in words (my mother language is not English)
wish you understand what i try to explain when you look on any HAF'932 reviews with pictures
)

Thanks for the links i43, you have me all but sold on that case lol! Unfortunately I've gotta wait till it's prices are closer to my budget, I'm sure my 900 can hold out till I decide to make the move. Too bad the HAF's don't come like that from the factory at their current price! I might consider paying a little more! :D

I had a 900 & hands down like my HAF way more for every aspect.
Any kind of temp comparisons? That's what I'm searching for now, to see how much of a difference is it truly worth. I'd imagine with a sidefan as an option for me it'd help a lot tbh...in my 900 I can no longer fit a side panel fan due to the Xig exhausting up and the larger 120x35mm Scythe fan on it...

As-far-as design, looks, functionality, the HAF looks like a winner, but I don't want noisier case fans necessarily and I don't want to spend 150 bucks on a case that will get me the same temps in a larger footprint. So I'm in research mode to make sure I can justify getting it! :D

My Antec 300 is an ass blasting crap monger compared to my haf :D
Yes but considering you can snag 3 Antec 300's for the price of one HAF, are you really suprised? I think the 300 is probably one of the best ~$50 cases money can buy hands down. Keeps my G/F's rig nice and cool, plus with fans on low speed it's extremely quiet with her build.

not sure yet as I haven't set my HAF up. It's still apart awaiting painting soon as a nice warm day arrives lol. But I will say this. You can't compare a wide open full tower to a closed in mid tower right. like I said the HAF wins hands down. Plus not to mention it's ease of internal water cooling abilities.

Good point, looking at installs everything looks about 100X more open and spaced out compared to my 900, which looks pretty stuffed for not having too much installed. WC isn't as big of a deal to me, but if I decide to go that route it seems the HAF is very well prepared for it. I really like the setup of the case, though I'd be tempted to paint the interior I don't think I'd have the patience to lol! If I had the case now, my system would be powered down and the swap would be well underway. :D

Yeah I hear that I almost did that myself but I don't have all the parts yet that I want to put in it so my spare system will do for now sitting in an open acrylic case laying on it's side lol.

I have a feeling I'll be joining this club sooner than later...I keep reading about this case, it reviews extremely well, looks good, seems to have very good yet very quiet airflow, which will be sweet when I can finally get an AC Accelero Xtreme GTX280 cooler for my 260. I like the room it has and the fact that it's a wider rather than super tall case. I just wish there was a good sale going on, I did find one for 149 shipped new from PC Connection or something similar...I really need to find one of these. :D

the HAF 932 has more features than cases double even triple it's price range. if this case had a removeable motherboard tray, filters, hot swap, aluminum and the style of the ATCS 840 it would be probably $250-300 but it would be worth every penny and possibly the best case ever created, it's already in my top 10 and I have been around a long time.

I updated guide, I added a Modifications section with a guide on how to change out the LED's I was going to add the side filter mod but I thought it was a little silly, I would like someone who's changing out their hard drive cage to post a small worklog so I can add it to the list or any other modifications.
