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 Cooler Master 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.
Can any HAF 922 owners please comment?

Thanks!

I don't own a HAF 922, but from all the things i've read about on the case and comments from people who own it, I've never heard of any of those problems. It's likely that you have a defective case?

The HAF series is CM's most successful series of case so i don't see how they would be skimping on it.

Perhaps it would have something to do with the HAF 912? Seeing as how the 912 is meant to replace the 922. (i think it is anyway). Maybe they are trying to phase out the 922?

I only have heard but don't know how true that the HAF 922 is sought of a "short-changed" HAF model in that the hard drive bays something about them being too short and the space therein for cables.

Just a little feedback and info for you:

I don't own a HAF 922 but do own a HAF 912 which is shorter in length to the HAF 922 but holds no bottom fan but can have either 1 or 2 120mm or 1 200mm fan in front and top which NONE of the other HAF models can do plus the modular hard drive tray. Also the HAF 912 has filters to where the HAF 922 does not and the 912 is not flimsy in any way.

HAF 912 doesn't have an LED fan switch and water cooling hole.

Hey guys.

My apologies for being away so so so so so so... well you get the gist I'm afraid.

From not having the funds to get the tool to Pneumonia and mother in the hospital(surgical procedure) and unstable system it's been a really fun 6 months. I highly recommend that everyone should try at least one of these issues. Just not all in succession.

My system is FINALLY back up. Still fighting with some stability issues that I can't quite figure out, but it's only when my system is trying to update while I'm busy doing something. Nothing like having the hidden icon window flickering worse than an early TV from the '50s to get you in the mood to strangle somebody.

Anyhoo lawrence was a good sport for keeping me apprised of the issues an I don't blame anybody for bein sore. But if I had had a choice of my system bein up or bein down for 6 months I can assure you that I would rather have taken a hot poker to an eyeball rather than it bein down.

Ah well if anyone ever wants to jump full on into sleeving their PSU and do it cheaply, buy the damn $25 tool and some pins. If you don't have that then don't start until you have that on hand.

List of parts I should have had but didn't when I started this rotten task.

ATX 24-30, 18-22 crimping tool. Corsair PSUs' will need one on hand.
ATX pins. Ended up getting both the standard and the golds. When I first got them they definitely do not look like they work. Anyone who has a dual lead pin setup will know what I'm talking about in comparing one to the other. Got it to work but not w/o a lot of trial and error.
ATX pin tool. a $10 part was definitely needed and I made the n00b mistake of trying to be a cheap bastage. Don't do that. In the end it's not worth it.
Also make absolutely certain to have extra connector shells on hand. I didn't and spent an extra 2 weeks down because of it. I fragged a pin inside my 24 pin shell. In fact it broke inside the shell. I had 3 extra orders from Performance-PCs after the Pin Tool & 1st set of pins were delivered because of this. I'll have to find a way to take a clean photo showing what that little mishap did to the pin holder. So now I have a full 24 pin and a full 8 pin connectors instead of 20+4 and 4+4 connectors.

Ummmm let's see. The last time I spoke with lawrence I had what I thought was a really bad cold. Well it was bad. Double pneumonia. I ended up being forcibly taken by my family up to the Yakima VA to get checked out. Doc told me if I had waited another day I probably wouldn't have recovered. Hospitalized for 3 weeks in a crummy hospital and the 1st week on nuthin but IV food and antibiotics.

Mother had her surgical procedure just prior to Thanksgiving I think it was and I had to house sit and feed livestock without much in the way of longjohns which had me all messed up and I made the mistake of going out with wet hair to my court date. So that's how I came by my excellent adventure.

Well anyway I'm finally back up and running and tring to figure out my stability issues. I just flashed the BIOS to 1305(?, sorry brain is a bit frazzled short term is on the fritz) and that seems to have cleared it up somewhat, but if I have anything more than a handful of windows open and MS decides to update(have since deactivated it after Patch Tueday bricked my brother's system) it makes my system quite unstable. Lots of horizontal flicker and I cannot figure out what's causing it. I think I'll try pulling all but one stick of RAM and seeing how I fare in the rinse repeat method to see if I can duplicate the issue. I doubt it's my PSU. At least it better not be.

Have you checked the gaps in the fronts of the doors? The area in the door that holds it onto the Cabinet while you apply the thumb screws in the back?

I don't know about the 922, but my 932 was having a similar issue(near as I can tell just reading your problem) and I checked the clearance of the U channel from top to bottom and fount that near to the top of my left panel the U channel had somehow gotten closed up a bit. I gingerly applied some force to the affected area with a pair of pliers and opened it back to where it should have been and now I don't have that problem anymore.

@TwwIX... Just a thought, but if you're looking for the BEST filter idea go with the DEMCiFlex kit. I went with the 3 filter kit and it works great. Kinda wish I woulda gotten the four filter kit. It's medical grade screening which is a tighter weave than your standard home screening and you don't have to figure out a way to mount them to the Cabinet since the HAF series are primarily steel. The magnets are not even strong enough to interfere with system operation. I know they're spendy but they are well worth it imho.
