Either get a clear window panel and cut it to fit, or get the Black edition full window panel (has no fan or vents though). The CM store had the doors for sale when I checked last time. It was about $20. The store is down right now though.

Ill be making some changes to it when i get the time to update, but it will be pretty much the same.

The 932 was back on sale again for $119.99, free ship from NewEgg, but it looks like everyone grabbed them up today. CompUsa has them for 139.99 with $20 rebate and free ship. It's about as cheap as you'll get one for new.

Just wanted to let you guys know I found a solution to my duct noise problem. I was getting ready to buy a fan, then I thought, "Wait! My Noctua fans came with some voltage adapters!" So I tested temps the way they were, then with and without the adapters.

Without the duct was way worse, ULNA (Ultra low noise adapter) was the exact same, but with the LNA (low noise adapter) the fan was silent compared to no duct fan and the performance wasn't a whole lot worse! I did lose a couple C's I really couldn't but I just don't know what else I can do to cool my top SLI card and that noise was driving me crazy!

If you decide to take out the Noutua to turn it around you might want to ty swapping it for the BladeMaster to see if that changes the noise level.

Papa Smurf: The Noctua is a 140mm body with 120mm holes, it wouldn't fit in the duct tongue.gif

Seems like someone needs a mental engineering degree to get around. tongue.gif lulz

See if you can't fin a Dryer duct plate and modify that to adapt to your Noctua. You might have to shorten the collar but it should help match up your ducting to your Noctua. biggrin.gif

Hi all! I picked up a HAF 922 earlier this month with my new build and thought I'd throw my hat in here. Its a mid range budget build. My focus was more processing power for video encoding. It's not a gaming rig.

Specs:
Cooler Master 922
Microsoft Windows 7
MSI 870A-G54 motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz
VisionTek Radeon 4350
Reused the 120GB 7200 rpm HD from my previous build (will swap in a SSD boot drive when $ permits)
G.SKILL Ripjaws 8GB of RAM
CORSAIR Builder Series CMPSU-600CX

The case:
CoolerMasterHAF922a.jpg

CoolerMasterHAF922b.jpg

So far the only mods I've done is to stealth the DVD burner and added some spacers to the feet to raise the case up a little.

Immediate plans are to add a custom engraved side lit window (quotes on the engraving are currently pending), replace the stock top fan with a 200mm Cooler Master LED fan and change out the red LEDs on the fans.

As money permits I plan on breaking down the case and having it powder coated.

In terms of cooling, which is better: HAF 922 or Storm Sniper Black Edition? With and without all fans added. I'm assuming the Storm Sniper is the better Mid tower case for cooling, based on techpowerup's review as well as the fact that the sniper has more 200mm fans stock. And also which is better overall? Do not factor in price in any of the above please, im talking pure performance.

I don't see why you can't. I have a 360 rad top mounted (inside the case) and the stock 200mm fan still in place.
