i understand your concern about the HAF since i am such a owner too.
its not pretty, it doesnt even look good but i like the fact that its big, that you have a lot of space and that you push a massive amount of air dust through it wink.gif

the case is doing its job and very well.

I've got an Antec Twelve Hundred V3, and it had a massive interior. The only problems with this case, is that the fan filters are a **** to get out, and there isn't much space for Cable management behind the mobo tray, but there is still enough. This case has awesome airflow, and my CPU on a Cooler Master V6GT stays around 40C on full load, and thats with horrible TiM.
Heres a photo showing how much space is in my system. And the cable management is very good if i may say so myself:thumb:
450

I'm gonna have to take that back, THAT looks like a spaceship.
Totally dig that picture, very clean management I might add! thumb.gif

I agree, to each their own, however like we said before open air is good!
Think why we all tend to hide our cables, in addition to sleeving, it helps reduce the amount of clutter in the case, which helps with the airflow.

Just think this through, we have intake coming from the front and far low (or most of us, do).
As air warms, it expands and its density reduces, therefore, warm air rises.
While the warm air is rising, you want to push it far back and up top as fast and efficiently as possible.
Why?

So the once cool air can be pushed across all the components of the computer.
The exhaust fans help this air flow by pulling the air towards the rear, as to help pull the cool air past the components.

HAF 932s do have an interesting design to them, which many dig while others think it's plain awful.
The Level 10, in my mind, is a really nice case, as far as ventilation, I have no idea.
However, the HAF932 has some lots of open space for the fans to pull air in.

If you really despise the HAF932, why not sell it? I am in the market for a new case..

the HAF cases are just awesome in my opinion, best case i ever had and still using it.
btw about hot air rising: http://www.overclock.net/t/1215484/a-small-correction-regarding-the-laws-of-thermodynamics-and-convection

it goes where you push it! thats all

yeah that's right but, it's easier for the fans to "go with the flow" rather than counter it.

I have an HAF 912. With my antec kuhler it's much better to use the tops fan as intake as it blows cool air onto the radiator and it doubles as exaust. Coupled with a reference AMD card all my fans are intake fans aside from the radiator p/p. This is a much better setup then using the top as exaust as the GPU blows air out the back as does the CPU (which gets two 120mm fans worth of direct cool air from the outside).

So yeah it's not exactly true that you always want your top fans as exaust.

i just wanted to share the link, and hot air wont rise directly upwards as soon as one fan is blowing.

Curious, have you tried exhaust on top, and what were your temps?

Normally, you want your hottest air to be going out the rear, or top rear.
The intake will be, like you said, pushing the air backwards, as it rises, and so top rear.
