The Official Cooler Master HAF X/932/922/912(+) Club - Page 1502

post #15011 of 23545
Just got my 922 yesterday. Looks really nice in person. Not sure why, but the front LED doesn't seem to be working (I think the fan's still spinning though). I hate LED's, so I'm not really complaining smile.gif

Temps are a little better than my old Centurion 5. Definitely a lot more spacious and easier to work with though. The only thing that was ALMOST as issue was that my 8-pin power connector wouldn't reach going behind the mobo and out the other end (since PSU is bottom-mounted) so I have the cable pretty much strapping down my GTX480 going across my motherboard tongue.gif should be fixed when I get a new PSU.

This thing is quiet as hell compared to my old case....and it has bigger/more fans! I've got a 10db Slipstream 120mm fan coming in this week (might get more too) so I'm gonna start going crazy with the airflow.

If the HAF 932 is better than the X then why did cooler master make a 932 Advanced more like a HAF X?

About the lighting from the last few posts above mine, If you get some nice LED fans, you will not need any other sort of lighting. To prove this point, I have attached a few pics of my HAF X Blue edition that all I added (Lighting or fan wise was 1 more CM Megaflow 200mm Blue LED fan up to to match the one already there).

Edit: I did not plan my pics to go like this: Blue, Red, Blue, Red, Blue. Lol it was completely coincidental. Honest lol.
To be honest, I don't like clear fans. I've had them installed in my PC, but I didn't like it much. I've actually been considering getting a set of CM XtraFlo fans to replace my blademasters, but then I'm tied to red, which is one of the main reasons I chose black fans.

Also, I don't want the PC to be lit up like a christmas tree, it should just have a glow to it.

I'm actually concerned more with getting pics of a 922 with green lighting than what type of lighting to use.

Thanks for the replies though guys.

But, if you aren't going to water cool, or not top mound, then the 942 does very nicely as well.

But being the cheap skate that I am... 932 is cheaper.
942 is just as great for water

Amen to that lol. Do you have any plans on upgrading your rear radiator to a larger one sometime? Maybe a 240mm or 360mm rad out the back? They make some nice rad boxes to help with it. But to put this argument to rest, both the HAF X and HAF 932 are great cases and both of them are perfectly capable of housing water cooling and are both great at it. But since I own 2 HAF X's I am partial to them. If I was given a HAF 932 then I would happily accept it and build a great computer in it. In fact (as I have stated before) I have built several computers in HAF 932's for clients and it was almost as much of a pleasure as building in a HAF X. When I was looking to buy a second case for my second build I was looking into getting a HAF 932 Advanced but ultimately went with the HAF X Blue Edition as it was cheaper to get the HAF X Blue Edition and 1 Cooler Master Megaflow 200mm Blue LED fan than a HAF 932 advanced a Megaflow 200mm, 4 X 120mm fans, and 1x 140mm fan to get the same effect. So since it was actually cheaper for the HAF X in the long run, it just makes even more sense to get it lol.


Since I am on the subject of the HAF X Blue Edition's fans, does anyone know the specs of the 140mm fan that comes with it? I cannot find it anywhere. I can't even find the fan anywhere to buy one.

Edit: Nevermind, I found it finally. Here it is. It's low CFM and low dBA. 69 CFM and 16 dBA. I think that I might swap it out for a Yate Loon High Speed 140mm

Well if you have a ASUS Rampage III the HAF X is a no no with a RX360 rad, Unless you just run pull fans. I can fit RX360 + RX120 inside the case with the 932 For me having it all inside is the only way to go I am thinking of adding a external 1080 Rad just because I can Of course I would be upgrading to a new pump

if your going to run water why would anyone waste money on a rasa kit, the rads suck, and the pump is crap , so you cant base water cooling ability on a cheap kit

What blocks the extra fans? Is it the heat sinks on the mobo? If so the water cool the board lol. You already have the loop and the R3E boards are popular enough that blocks are readily available. Plus with a 1080mm just because you cab radiator, it would more than cool anything you have in there. I saw pics of a guy who had several HUGE radiator's(I don't remember the size of them but they made a 480 rad look like tinker toys) that he actually mounted underneath his house so that it would keep his rig sub ambient in the winter when the ground froze and close to or sub ambient in the summer because of the location of them. I don't think that there is a system out there that could heat that fluid up. I'll see if I can find the pics of it.

Guys, the 932 and 942(X) are exactly the same chassis inside. The only changes really to the 942 is the loss of 2ndary PSU mount and CM took off the metal top to allow a Radiator to mount there without any metal to limit the thickness of your 360. Everything else is the same... almost forgot that they removed the metal PSU stand and added 2 slots. Neither of which matter unless you have an EATX board the requires more room and you have the Cards requiring more slots.

After all this it's just a matter of which looks better to you and how much you're willing to spend. They are both EXCELLENT cases. And being the oldest and shortest of 3 siblings I look at it like the 932 is the Eldest with 942 Bubba tagging along after him.

First time watercooling The RX Rad's work great, And the pump is having no problem running RX360 + RX120, CPU block, And EK 6990 Block. Don't talk crap about something you know nothing about I will tell anyone to buy the Rasa kit for there first time watercooling. The RX360 kit can run a CPU, and GPU no problem. I only added a RX120 because I wanted to be different, And my 6990 is hot
