That's interesting, as Faster-is-better asked, I also wanted to know what fans are you using on the 932 panel. I know that the HAF X panel only comes with the mounts for a single 230mm fan, the 932 comes with provision for mounting either the 230mm fan or up to 4x120mm fans.
Which is a moot point for me, as I have the 932 BE panel which has NO provision for any fans, just a big honkin' window.
I like the looks of the window, but have been considering either making fan cutouts or trying to get a regular 932 panel. Or a HAF X panel, at least until you mentioned the temperature difference.

Now I want the 932 Advance though, they did pretty much everything right with that refresh. Although.. if I'm going to get a new case, I could just get the HAF X which has everything and more than the 932... tough decision. The HAF X could potentially last me forever, as long as I didn't get bored with it lol. But so could the 932 Adv.. it has black interior and the gpu fan duct, basically the 2 things I wanted most, that my original HAF is missing.
So you would consider getting the newer 932 to replace your original 932?
I'm not knocking that decision, as I have changed cases a few times over the years.
I also like the HAF X, but bought a 932 BE (Black Edition) because I needed the ability to mount the psu on top, which as you know the 932 has both options. The 932 Advance also has the usb3 connectors as well as being black inside.
But the HAF X has it's own features not on the 932, such as fine mesh filters, 9 expansion slots, sata dock, psu cable partition, etc.
I also think the HAF X is a little better looking. But the 932 is right for me, I just have to figure out if I want to get some airflow going in the side panel.Edited by DerComissar - 6/7/11 at 5:04pm
