HAF 932 Black Edition V.S Advnace

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
As of right now I can get a HAF 932 B.E for $120 and Advance for $130 so price isn't a issue, the performance is my main concern. The B.E has a huge side window which is very aesthetically pleasing however the sacrifice is the side fan. I know for most system that wouldn't make a huge difference but I have a Gigabyte GTX 570 SOC that has a internal exhaust design with three fans. I have tested the temperature with the side panel on, it's almost a easy bake oven at 90 Celsius and rising. With the side panel off I'm at 80 Celsius. Keep in mind that I'm using furmark extreme burn-in, normally I'm at 60 Celsius in game with the case off and prob 70 with the case on. If I get the advance edition im lost likely going to use it as a exhaust instead of intake. With B.E I have no idea what to expect. So does anyone have any idea which one to get?

core 2 quads are still fine for gaming. the haf 932 black has the inside painted black while the 932 advanced is not.

Black interior > non painted

I have a black edition and with my 260gtx the gpu temps are really high, unless I run the gpu fan at 80% or above it gets super hot, however I have OC'd the crap out of my videocard and it is 2XX generation one so it is to be expected and I dont fault my case too much. The HAF Black Edition is very good looking, I would say the best looking out of all the HAF cases. It also came with a gpu shroud that you can install a fan on but it was to cumbersome to install for my tastes.

Hope that helps.

I think he was trying to say that a q6600 especially if at stock would bottleneck a 570gtx.

You would need to get the Advanced Edition for the necessary gpu cooling.
Have a look at my review:
http://www.overclock.net/13996490-post14674.html
This shows how much difference there was in my gpu temps. using the stock 932 vented door panel with various fan combinations, vs the un-vented windowed panel that originally came with my 932 BE. The stock door panel only cost me 20 bucks from CM, but you would be best to just purchase the Advanced Edition 932.

Edit:
It has been falsely reported in this thread that the 932 Advanced Edition isn't painted black inside.
Please note that the HAF 932 Advanced is painted black inside like the BE:

LOL of course I'm going to upgrade those parts. This is just temporary, getting the case along with p8p67 evo and 2500k. As for the 1000w, it's for sli in the furture. I have to say I'm quite bottle necked as of right now though haha.
