I actually have the demcifilters for my HAF 932. They are great, and the magnets are super weak (almost too weak-just enough to keep them on). But because of which, they do not cause problems other than them shifting (or falling off) if you move the case around biggrin.gif

Fan placement?

I got 2 outtake fans for my the H70 Corsair Liquid Cooler attached to the back, 2 top intake fans, one intake fan at the bottom and one outtake fan attached the bays.

What you guys think?

I think thats fine. Not Bad.

I don't want to come off pushy or braggish or whatever, but I think mine is a tad more efficient. I too have an H70 (check out my rig on the previous page). I use the law of "Heat Rises." So I have two intakes on the bottom. One intake in the 5.25"bays. obviously the 230 as an intake. I have slipped a thin scythe fan in the top of my case above the CD drives. So in my rig, Cool air vents from the bottom and front, and out the rear and top.

(again, don't want to sound like a douche or something. I just tried something that felt logical to me)

Hope that helped smile.gif

*edit*
and the H70 vents out BTW (I didn't like the intake idea because it just sucks in hot air from my graphics cards

Actually that does sound alot more logical, and i loved the PSU up top (would have helped with cable management) . I just didn't like the idea of my PSU 'hanging' off 4 screws.

I based mine off the Positive Air Pressure on this page.

I'm using five 2000 RPM SickleFlow 120mm fans and the one stock fan on the bottom front.

Thanks for the input Rider85.

*Edit*

I notice your using the same fans, and I'm also looking into a FC. Would you recommend that FC or a different one??

Price isn't a issue.

And also for your Cold Cathodes do you have a cable extension so your top Cathode can reach the box on the bottom or wherever it seems to be?

Positive pressure is most certainly good. I opted for a cross sectional flow of air over the entire mobo though.

And thanks biggrin.gif And i had no choice lol. The 4way Classy extends into the bottom PSU area. I had to put it up top.

No Problem man.

*edit*
The PSU does have two tabs it sits on up top...so there is less pressure on the rear 4 screws (at least on my Black Edition case anyways. I cant necessarily speak for the regular HAF 932.

Fan Controller: To be honest, I dont have much experience with them. I opted for This one merely because it had 6 fan inputs. I am not sure if I recommend it though. Cable Management was hell, and over long cable runs, power to the fans droop. My H70 fans cant run on the lowest setting. (the controller uses "High, Medium, or Low." But the controller does work well, looks sweet, and only takes up one slot:

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/searchtools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=6526214&SRCCODE=GOOGLEBASE&cm_mmc_o=VRqCjC7BBTkwCjCECjCE

So my quick review of this controller:

Pros:
Cheap
Looks Good
Single bay slot
Controls 6 fans

Cons:
Cable management is hellish
only 4 pin connectors so you need an adapter (but our sickleflows came with them)
ONly High, medium, low fan settings

Overall:
Great fan controller for the price so I believe that alone covers the cons.

So yes, for the PRICE I recommend it and dont believe you can find better (for controlling 6 fans anyways)


Cathodes:

YES! I had to have one 24" extension cable so i could have one 12" up top, and one on the bottom. However, i only needed one because I ran the cables in the rear of the case and had the inverter on the bottom. If you put the inverter in the middle of the case, you wont need extensions (but the cables will be visible).

I recommend picking up a more powerful inverter because with the stock inverter, the 12" cathode with the extension isnt fully lit (the problem isnt there for 4" ones over long runs though. I cant speak for an 8", only 12" and 4"

Ah, yes. I also got the Black Edition. Hm, IF I ever decide to change it, it'll probably change to a setup like yours (PSU uptop and fan placement). Just got to look around for a good Fan Controller for the five Sickleflow 120mm fans.

Looked at:

Scythe Kaze Server

ZALMAN MFC1 Plus-B Black 6 Channel

Scythe Kaze Master Pro

I think I might've gone with the NZXT Sentry LX but I've heard problems with the Sickleflow.

I've also looked into a Lamptron FC6 but I don't think anyone is shipping to Canada.

I would go for the Kaze Master (although it is more expensive). I owned a scythe with 4 fan controls and it worked great for the sickleflows. I only changed it because i needed two more fans.

Rider, wouldn't a 3 Pin Y-Splitter solve that?

And thanks for the input.

*Edit*

Or does that split the voltage per fan?? I'm not exactly sure how Fan Controllers work. This is my first time building a monster computer like this.
post #10070 of 23525
should i change my air flow in the haf 932? i currently have the fan in standard setup since i got it. But adding a H70 in Push/Pull config so the rear exahust will be pulling in air now. The top is exhuasting and the side panel and front are intake.
