I've had three Abit mobos with LED backlighting built into them. My favorite modder mobos...instant bling :D Backlit mobos look badass.

dude JM , your rig is sweeeeeeeeeeeet!
Nice lighting effect :rockout:
Thank you ladies... whoops.. I mean gentlemen! :laugh:
With this new rig I want my lighting to be a little more subtle than usually. Most of the time I have the 12 inch CC in red or blue. I fell in love with the white and these Xiggy Xlrs so I picked up some more white LEDs and did what you see. Eventually there will be more added behind the mobo and I will remove the 15 inch white CC at the top and just use the LEDs for all of my lighting. Right now I have my power cable, 2 satas, and some other random wiring going through the hole behind the mobo. Im going to cut 1 more hole just for the SATA's and my cables for the VGA just to clean it up a bit more.:rockout:

Well thank you Cold... Im glad to give you a bit of inspiration... makes me all warm and fuzzy inside :wtf:

Yesterday my rig was dismantled and drying off in the sauna.
Sorry, didn't take a pic.

It certainly brought a tad of excitement into the evening when the CPU waterblock outlet tube somehow managed to fall off right in the middle of a Left 4 Dead session. HD4890 and X-Fi got literally soaked. Water under the GDDR chips.

Yay.
:\

Looks like everything works, though. Which is rather unbelievable as I actually didn't notice the "leak" right away but after some 30mins and a restart(!!).

Yup.

Thrackan,
When I opened the sidepanel CPU block outlet tube was completely off the barb. I have no idea how that could happen as that piece of tube is Tygon 7/16" and the barb is a 1/2" EK high-flow fitting. It's a pretty tight fit. So tight that it has been fine without a hose clamp for 2 years in 3 different systems. I guess the tube must have gotten loose as it slightly touches the case sidepanel which is mounted by sliding it on.

Gotta say I'm pretty happy with my screw-in fittings. Maybe the tubing got old and lost its stretch?

OK I have to admit the HAF is not as ugly in your pics as I had pictured the case from reviews...
Pretty nice cabling too.

Be sure you realize this is the mini HAF, or 922, versus the 933 HAF that has been out for a bit. Reviews for this just hit the air today.

Figures, I suspected something like that. It's a lot less of the "jerrycan" model that the big HAF is.

I agree, and to be honest it isnt all that much smaller than the HAF933. Was a real pleasure to build in.

Sigh pics of midtowers like this makes me regret buying my antec 1200. The 1200 is a good case and all but its not very convenient, you need extended cables for some PSU's and the motherboard tray has no opening for a backplate meaning I always gotta take out the motherboard when im cleaning or replacing tim.

You have an awesome rig there.

I will trade my antec 1200 to anyone who has a mid tower equivelant of it :).

I had a 900 so I sorta feel your pain. Aslo the length of PSU wires needed was surprizing to me as well. The OCZ she has has caused issues with building before, namely the 8-pin CPU lead. Overall I really like the HAF 922, and its going to be like $10 less than the HAF 933, and as you can tell , the 922 is a bit less obtrusive IMO.

I can tell. After upgrading my system specs and spending time making the insides of my PC look neat and tidy, I've been looking for big open windows for display, hence my modded side panel. I'd probably most likely do an acrylic window mod if I were to buy a haf 922 or maybe just get the cm sniper amd dragon version.

The 8pin on my hx 620 watt doesn't reach at all, also you can see that the front fans have an almost impossible red and black cable to hide, I've used too much wiring loom it looks messier than cleaner. The way the PSU is placed is a horror, there's no air holes for it to be mounted the right way to allow the PSU to breathe. instead, it has to be mounted upside down which made wiring even more of a hassle.

I think you have done a good job with the cable management, considering.

How many people would pay that little bit extra cash for a case, if the interior was painted black?
I would LOVE the HAF 922 if it had a black interior. I know you can spray it yourself but personally when I am paying that much for a case, I don't feel like i should have to take that bigger risk in messing it up.

I completely agree the inside should have been black like the sniper or the 933, but hey coolermaster has to save that $10 somewhere...lol

I'm glad to see CM dropped the 230mm fans, obtrusive to say the least.

Confucius say:
Cooling is not measured by the size of your fan.


EDIT: Price point on the 922?

I can tell. After upgrading my system specs and spending time making the insides of my PC look neat and tidy, I've been looking for big open windows for display, hence my modded side panel. I'd probably most likely do an acrylic window mod if I were to buy a haf 922 or maybe just get the cm sniper amd dragon version.

The 8pin on my hx 620 watt doesn't reach at all, also you can see that the front fans have an almost impossible red and black cable to hide, I've used too much wiring loom it looks messier than cleaner. The way the PSU is placed is a horror, there's no air holes for it to be mounted the right way to allow the PSU to breathe. instead, it has to be mounted upside down which made wiring even more of a hassle.

Make your own air holes then reroute all your cabling behind your motherboard tray.

Thats what I did. It only took a few minutes and made a world of difference.
