I'm disappointed... You don't sell everything when you realize you're trying to keep on the cutting edge. You just keep the stuff you have, and stop upgrading all the time. That's what I did, and I'm still happy.

Okay guys..
I guess it's time to post my HAF.
I used to use a NZXT Tempest case I switched to this beast for only one reason.
Upgradability I plan on Water cooling in the next few months.
Anyways.
about my case build. Very Very well thought out... Wire management is superb!!.
I know you guys hear this all the time. but CM really made this case right.
The only thing I dislike is that freaking front panel LED action. it's freaking bright.
Other than that. it's good.

Enough of that.. This is my pc
Painted the interior flat black, like I did with my Tempest

Some blue lighted action lulz


i was supposed to take out all the rivets.. but at the time I didn't have enought for the rivets.. and it was sunday and most harware stores were closing, if not closed already.
so yeah.
oh yeah guys..
I need some input.. I will be selling my 9800 GTX to my freind.. will it be good to save up and just get a GTX 280, or just go with a GX2 with the 250 bucks I have now.. I will be getting the "recertified" GX2's I see online.
Anyways..

Take it easy

I'd say you're better off waiting a bit for a GTX 280.

Wait, I'm not part of this club...

The reason I'm here is to ask whether or not this case is worth its looks for its expandability and versatility. I'm planning on getting a new case, and this one's up against The Apevia X-Jupiter, Antec 1200, CM690, and Antec 300. I just can't decide between these.

I Love mine its big It had a lot of room for cable management. I was able to put a Swiftech MCR320 raidiator and one set of fans and a hollowed out fan for the shrouds and there is still plenty of room.

A few questions to HAF owners....

1. I know the 932 has lots of fans, but are the fan headers the standard 3 pin type that can be plugged into a motherboard, so that they can be controlled by the BIOS? If not, how are these presented? i.e. a single molex connector etc.

2. I'm sure I've asked this before but can't remember the reply. If you install a TRUE CPU Cooler, does this cooler get in the way of large side fan? (i.e. do you have to remove the side fan to run a TRUE cooler.

3. And if the fans can't be controlled by the motherboard, should I look at getting a 3rd party controller to control the fans? I'd like the computer quiet when it's not working hard, but be able to speed up to cope with my air cooled overclockeded Q9450. Currently at 3.0Ghz, but would like to run higher once I can properly cool the thing [3.2Ghz gets the CPU upto 70c with IntelBurnTest]

I can only answer #2 to be exact, sorry. Yes you can remove the side fan, it's just screws. But a TRUE should fit, it's a HUGE Case

For #3, the fans already run at 19dB (700CFM), I dont think a fan speed controller would be necessary unless you already have one or plan on using 4x 120mm fans in the 23cm fan slots. As for a TRUE fitting, there shouldnt be any problems even with that big fan on the side panel.

On a side note, I think I am going to get this case this weekend.
$129.99 at Micro Center until November 9, 2008.
