The bottom drive bays are all in 1 cage, which was removed by just de-riveting. You can cut the cage but you won't be able to put it back together like it was originally. The tubing is 1/2 ID 3/4 OD.

Hi everyone. I own a Coolermaster HAF 922 case, and I recently bought a Gigabyte GTX 460 to run in SLI with another GTX 460. I've found that having the cards next to each other in the two dark blue PCI-E slots causes unsustainably high temperatures on the top card; the temperature invariably reaches 100c when playing games, even with the fan speed set to maximum.

In my attempts to find a solution, I thought I'd try placing the bottom card in the white PCI-E slot at the bottom of the board, just above the PSU slots so there would be more space between the cards and, hopefully, a reduction in the temperature of the top card. There is a problem though. My PSU prevents a card being installed in the bottom PCI-E slot. When I try to install one of the GTX 460s in that bottom slot, I am unable to fit the card because the top part of my PSU case blocks the metal part of the card (the part of the card where the DVI connectors are located). So I can't get the card into the slot. Has anyone else had this problem?

I've been satisifed with the HAF 922 until now, but had I known this problem would arise, I'd have gone for the HAF-X instead. Looks like I'll have to bite the bullet and buy one.

Nice find, but unfortunately that link is for the CM Store in New Zealand, which probably don't ship to North America.
Would be nice if the HAF X panels were available at other CM Stores, I'm considering one for my 932.

Did you notice if it helped with temps? I was curious how much of a difference the side fan made. I didn't need it since my rigs are water cooled. The remaining case fans are enough to keep things cool for me now.
It does look good. I also wonder if it helps with temps., particularly for the gpu's. Of course, there aren't any fans at all in the 932 BE panel I have.

I'm posting this link to my setup, because I had a similar situation as you do, and my cure was to buy a 932, because it has the option of mounting the psu on the top or bottom:
http://www.overclock.net/13570622-post13888.html
The HAF X doesn't have a top mount psu option, It does, however, have more pci slots (two more than the 932, nine slots in total) for a bit more clearance from the bottom-mounted psu, but of course not as much space as the 932 has with the psu top-mounted. The two 120mm fans mounted on the case bottom blow directly onto the gpu, with no power supply in the way.

I'd want to use a full windowed side panel to show off the water-cooling.

Yup the CM Store carries these, but they were all out of the HAF X panels so I put an add up in the "wanted" section.

I dislike the rounded edges one currently in CM's store, i want the amd panel, not the window, just the panel, so bad.
IMO the panel itself is just god awful/ ugly. But to each his own

I would actually like to part with it. It has a few scrapes (nothing you couldn't buff out) from bumping it. These panels scratch VERY easily on all models of HAFs unfortunately

Temps did not change majorly because these fans have too low of RPMs to really move the air. I'm thinking of going with 2x 140/120mm 1700rpm+ (whatever fits) in the top as well as a new side panel fan. I changed the side panel from pull to push to move the hot air out away from the 5870... I may change it back though because the temps seemed to get a little higher because the 5870 isn't getting as much fresh cool air.

RE: "Ok so I'm finally getting around to getting my case all together and ready for the parts to finish my build and I have added a 2nd 200mm fan to the top of my HAF-X and realized I can't seem to get the top panel on properly with the USB 3.0 cables plugged in, has anybody else run into this or have any sugestions? They hit the fan coming out of the header, all the other wires on the panel fit properly though."


I too am having problems with adding the extra fan. I almost busted the circuit board when putting the top back on, the esata cable is also kind of in the way. I thought of buying some low profile usb cables but could not find any so far. Have you found a solution yet? I was just going to drill some new holes and mount the fan more towards the back since it has a few inches to spare between the fan mounting holes. I cant tap the holes though the metal is too thin. I suppose I could use self tapping screws but have to be careful of the metal scraps either way. Anyway post if you have a resolution. I have the fan ready to go in!
