Just got my EK Block and fittings in the mail.

1st the fittings...
3 are perfect.
3 are damaged. Slightly dinged on 1. Clear ding on another and the 3rd is clearly dinged inside the inlet. I'm not sure I'm gonna even use them since they're now susceptible to premature wear. It's not the coating process that's suspect here, it's CLEARLY handling and how they were shipped to me imho. Every one of them were covered with small ziploc baggies. And lumped in together in a reasonable sized box. Would have been better if they were done so and placed in the carton separately. The one with the internal wear(all three were inlet damaged) looks like someone stuffed it on a J-peg hook, scratching it in the process.

I'm not mad about the Block being wrong. But I clearly orderd the Roundtop Classified Block. That's the one I want. I paid $60 for it. I got the $80 Squaretop Block. It looks magnificent, but it's not the one I paid for. I know how it happened. The lady filling the order didn't pay attention to the price of the unit and the units have the same header. On top of that the printout that I received from them doesn't list the price of the unit. Only that she grabbed, checked off the item and moved on.

The order got here exceptionally fast however. Placed the order on Tuesday and it was here Today.

Just not what I was expecting.

I'd be disappointed about the damage to the fittings. I guess you could have them send you some undamaged ones, since you got some damaged goods from them. But would they pay the return shipping, etc.
Main concern I had was if it would have any functional effect on them, such as water leakage, but it doesn't look like it.
If you can live with the different block, I guess it's an upgrade in a sense.
Nice parts regardless

Thank-you Mudfrog! I appreciate that.
Seems that most members here with 932's, and the vented door panel, use the included 230mm fan on the door. But there are a few running four 120mm's that report good results, as I have.
I think four 120mm fans will always outperform the 230mm, as they should.
But the effectiveness of the 230mm depends on the setup.
Ceadderman has a 1-3C benefit with the 230, I had none.
I'm going to continue using the four 120mm fan setup now, it works great for me.

I'm not using the 230mm fan on the top either. I mounted a 120mm CoolerMaster blue led fan there. But that was mainly because I have the psu on the top of the case, so it wouldn't work with the 230. I have to have the psu on the top, because of the triple-slot coolers I have on my 480's, the bottom 480 won't clear the psu if it's mounted in the bottom.
The dual-psu mount option was my first reason to buy this 932 when I went sli with the 480's. I had a 690II Advanced before that, where I just ran one 480 in it.

Right now, in addition to the four 120mm fans in the door panel, I have two 120mm fans in the bottom of the case, one 140mm in the back, one 120mm in the top, and two 120mm's in the front (one replaced the included front 230mm fan, and I added another one into the 5.25 bay).

I also got that plastic housing for the 120mm fan with my 932 BE (Black Edition). But I can't report any results with it because I can't use it.
It wasn't wide enough to clear both of my 480's (fits fine with most stock cooled cards though). Also, when I got the 932, I removed the hard drive cage for better airflow, and that housing came bolted to it
I'd give it a try though, like Ceadderman suggested!

I did extensive testing with the 80mm fan in the gpu bracket and it does not lower temps at all. In fact it raised temps 1-2c. I think its because it created turbulence in the air from the door.

I'm so tempted to order the one on sale to see if I get the square one... It would suck if I got the round one though... Lol

It's obvious that you've never used any of the good quality sleeve to know the difference.
So you really think this is low quality sleeving?


Really doesn't look that much different compared to the well renowned MDPC-X sleeving imo

Dont worry kiwiasian, I took your word on it and bought 3 kits. I mean I spent less than $30 and I'm getting a Metric A$$ Ton of sleeving and from what I have seen on it, it looks to be of decent quality. I'm sure that it's not of the highest quality but again it doesn't need to be. All of my cables are black anyways.

Both will fit.

However I believe you could get a 922 3.0 kit when they come up for sale at the same place. the Hotswap Bay slider is for a 5.25 bay. You seen one of those you seen em all. 5.25 bays not Hotswap sliders.
