The Official Cooler Master HAF X/932/922/912(+) Club - Page 1054

post #10531 of 23525
Does anyone know if the third fan slot (the one that's half under the fillport tray) on the top of the HAF 932 is even worthy of a fan?

I was at MicroCenter before and ended up getting a nice Scythe S-Flex E for the video card intake on the bottom of my case and was wondering whether it would have made sense to get three S-Flexes for the roof of the case being that one is half obstructed.

Or would it make more sense to just get the 2 and replace the 230mm brute.

Does anyone know if 1200 rpm S-Flexes would decrease performance over the 230mm fan?

HA - I can't disagree with you there. I mainly mean how difficult it can be to find good parts with red LEDs. It's a lot easier now, but when I first started putting together red LED builds (a few years ago now), there didn't seem to be as many options - almost everything was BLUE.

Even with the 932's - look what CM did - they made a blue version and guess what? All the fans are blue LED fans! Geez - they could have made my life easier by doing that with the original case. Instead, I had to wait for the CM store to get the 230mm red LED fans in stock and order those, as well as find a 140mm red LED fan (since CM doesn't appear to make one), and lastly a good 120mm one since the CM one is black with red LEDs (which makes no sense to me). I had that one for a while but it was far to loud for my taste, no to mention didn't look that good

Nice save there

You can tell the CM fans from the XIGMATEK ones in the pics. The color difference is not nearly as noticeable in person.

EDIT

Anyone know if this http://cmstore.coolermaster-usa.com/...roducts_id=134 will fit the left side of the 932? I'm currently away from my sig rig. Just curious.
I believe it fits, but you might have to drill new thumbscrew holes. Not sure if that applies to the right side door, or just the Sniper side panel for the 922.

No problem what so ever. There is so much room to play with on the Crosshair IV. I actually wasn't concerned at all with the V8 taking up any of the ram slots. By the way, they aren't that tall anyway. I'm waiting for the G. Skill Ripjaws to go on sale again so I can buy another 8GB. You can never have enough ram when it comes to photoshop. The V8 is such a beefy CPU cooler, but I knew the HAF X would definitely house it without a problem.

I cannot wait to see you clean that up, I'm sure you will make it look purdy.

Is that the NZXT Sentry LX? How do you like it? I'm thinking that my HAF X would look sexy with some sort of LED display on the front.

Can anyone else give me some suggestions as well?

I don't think so it's pretty restricted.
