Well I have 2 spare 200mm fan.. I can always fit them in a HAF-912

I'm seriously considering down grading to a HAF912 as I find HAF-X have too much space...

well if you already have them, then its a no brainer to get the 912 !

I also bought the 912 because of that exact same reason, I really dont need an X because I wont use watercooling or 3 or 4 way SLI/X-fire or something that needs tons of space while the 912 (with the two 200mm) is a great solution for its size.

The only thing that the normal 912 needs IMO is a sidewindow, but now you can buy the sidewindow panel from cmusa

I don't need a side panel.. Heh, I don't have the fetish of looking at your components

You can look at my HAF 912 in my profile album but it's the basic model and I only have a Matx motherboard in it but does have 200mm fans as it's not my flagship computer so then just visualize the nice black interior model (Plus or Advanced) you'd get with your components/hardware in it.

So I picked up a HAF 922 and completed my build today, however, I must say that I am disappointed in the build quality of the case.
Not sure if any other 922 owners can comment on whether or not this is 'normal', but I found that both side panels bow out a little, enough so that I need to apply some pressure on the panel when sliding them in for them close properly. This is on the front part of the panel.

I also found that the rear shelf where the intake fan near the PSU would be mounted is flimsy. Mine is very thin and does not sit flat with the HDD cage, so it flops in and out. It definitely is much cheaper feeling than the same area in my CM 690, so it seems as though Coolermaster is skimping to save some money of these newer cases.

Would appreciate if any other owners can comment, maybe I have a defective case and will have to swap it, which would be a pain since it would mean doing the build all over again.

Thanks.

I have a 932, but I'll comment on what I can. My side panels require a little bit of pressure to get the screw holes to line up with. Especially the back if you don't run the wires well. That could be your problem. I know the second time I did the cable management, I can to put the case on it's side just to get leverage to push the door on.

It definitely isn't from cable management as it occurs on both panels, so the side that has no cables protruding has this same bowing issue.

Is it very very evident?

If so you can try this: Take photos of both of those panels where it clearly shows the problem then put in for a ERma here: http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/erma.php and upload the photos and receipt where it says "Receipt/Invoice:" then explain in the space below that form the problem and what parts you want replaced. Then once your EMail provides you with an ERma number get on the phone with Cooler Master Customer Service or Technical Department and ask them to push that ERma through otherwise that ERma will most likely sit longer than you'd like. After the call monitor that ERma request like a hawk to make sure it goes out within a 48 hour time frame excluding weekends and if not call them back and remind them again - rinse and repeat. Most likely if they accept replacement of the two panels won't ask for the ones you have now back, if they do want them back (never heard yet of this happening but who knows) they should be footing the shipping back to them of the old ones not you.

Give it a try, what have you got to lose but possibly a bit of time.

Thanks for the info, but to be honest, I'm more concerned with the lower shelf that houses these intake fan near the PSU, if it's common for it to flex, then I can live with that, but if not, then I will definitely have to replace the case.

Replacing the doors is relatively easy to do, but as mentioned if the above issue is not normal, then the whole case has to be swapped out.

Again, appreciate any feedback from 922 owners on the lower shelf and whether por not it flexes.

Thanks!

Here's mine:
HAF 912 Advanced

Removed front USB 3.0 I/O panel since my board does not have USB 3.0.
