Here is a good guide on case pressure, fan utilization and such... just in case you haven't come across it.

It is a good guide, just a bit dated, although the basic principles are the same.
I'm interested in seeing some results on the testing of the 200-230mm fans vs 120mm fans, as Mr. P. Smurf is going to do. Although it's a bit of an apples vs oranges thing, and it may sometimes involve using multiple 120mm fans vs one 200-230mm fan. But the results will be useful to HAF owners, particularly with the 932 where we have the option of easily using either size of fan.

Aside from it being outdated (heck, most of it was outdated when it was posted), there is just way too much incorrect and outright false information in it. I recommend people avoid it at all costs.

Yikes

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.


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.
Well getting the 932 Advance basically saves me the trouble of painting mine, but it will still be lacking that gpu fanduct internally which may not even be that effective but I still wanted it badly when the HAF X came out

Of course If I'm to get another case I could just go all the way to the HAF X and have basically everything..

I got my case for about $90 on Black Friday couple years ago, I would wait for another similar deal on the Advance of HAF X, I could probably resell my case for 90+ at least which means I wouldn't be out very much at all for a nice upgrade.

Yes, it is on, it would be necessary to see again, to revise everything in the magnifying glass...
Everything is not false.

This rule remains unchanged

I also wanted it pre-painted black, my painting skills are lousy, and it's a hassle to do it well. Also, the factory paint jobs are usually more durable, unless the guy doing his own case is a pro at it, or gets it powder-coated.

That's a good plan for getting either the 932A or a HAF X, when there's a good sale price, then sell your 932 to re-coup the dough.
Edit:
I have to give credit to those who do paint their HAF's, because of the amount of work involved and the fact that they "did it themself".
There are a ton of good examples of excellent HAF cases that were re-painted in this thread.
