The Official Cooler Master HAF X/932/922/912(+) Club - Page 1115

post #11141 of 23527
Huh, so I got my haf 932 today, works fine but I'm a bit disappointed at the 230mm top exhaust fan. My Antec 900's aged 200mm was blowing air much better than the 230mm here. I don't see or notice any fan controls for the fans that came with the case itself. But I guess I may end up replacing that top 230mm with my 2 Silverstone FM-121's (they got pretty high CFM, so I figure they make great exhaust fans).

Anyone got any suggestions as to what fans would go well for the side panel? I think the 230mm there is OK, but I may consider getting something else, currently looking at Silverstone AP-121's since they seem to be good intake fans.

I am glad my front panel io came out fine. I heard a few horror stories of some CM cases with badly wired/grounded front panel io's causing shorts scared me from getting this case, but at least CM would replace them for free if you contacted them. An improvement in cable management from an Antec 900 that I feel satisfied with, but seeing as my PSU isn't modular, a bit of a task to route the wires around (still tons better than my old 900 irregardless).

The 230mm fan on the 932 should be pushing a lot more air than the Antec's 200mm. It may spin slower, but it pushes more air due to its size. I'm a previous owner of a 900 as well and I can say it pales in comparison to even a HAF912. In my opinion the HAF's stock fans are perfect for its design; I just wish I had blue fans for all 3.

Don't be fooled by those fans. They do move air. You won't need a fan controller on them, so just let them run full speed. I have mine running directly off my mobo with any issues. Unless you want more noise and need tons of air movement, then use 120 fans, but IMO, its not needed.

the 200 on top of an Antec 900 at high moves 136 cfm, the 230 in the HAF moves 110cfm, but is much quieter, I personally am placing 2 cooler master sickle flow red led 120s on top, they are 70 cfm each but only 19db, I highly recommend these fans if you want it quiet, you can always get some scythe 110 cfms, they are a nice 39 db

Did a quick mod today while the desktop is out of commission due to a dead PSU, I decided to go ahead and fix the one problem I have with my new HAF 932 black

I dint really understand the reasoning for the advertised red fans but the HDD and power LED's are insanely bright blue. I have been keeping a black dress sock on top of my computer to lay over the lights at night so they don't light up the room like a nightclub.

Today I did something about it. After probing the light pins on my servers mobo I found that the board puts out 5v to the blue lights with ~.5 an Ohm of resistance between the LED's and the mobo pins. So with the new red replacements I also wired in 220 Ohm resistors.

I do not own a HAF chassis.

However, i would just like to comment on the dedication and ongoing involvement in this club.

I have never seen another club starter be so invloved and have such a full and updated list of members.

The "Hall of Fame" is also a great idea and i think more clubs should incorporate it.

I would just like to congradulate the Club Starter, this is the best club ive seen on OCN.

This was one of the first mods I did to my case. Before I swapped them out I had put thick double sided tape over them because they were insanely bright. When the HDD light would flash at night it was like someone was welding in my room! It was WAY too bright and the blue lights didnt match anything else in the case.
