Thinest will still block the dust and have the least restriction.
What do you mean by least restriction? So you're actually suggesting I get the thinnest one?

Also, by default the HAF922 has a dust filter in the front fan right?

Won't pantyhose distort the beauty of LED lights?

Is that Push/Pull config you mentioned for the case itself? I though the top fan should be an exhaust and the bottom fan to be an intake?

So far I'm just looking at fans and different CFMs and dBs so I haven't put much thought into push or pull or both. What do you thinks the best?
By the way, first lot of rep for your quick reply!
Push/Pull is generally the best bet. CFM will also depend on the radiator. Some have been engineered to work with low CFM/Pressure, some not as much. Keep in mind, my 1st from scratch system was on a 1st gen CM Stacker, with an OLD MRC220 rad with fans on top pulling, and sucking in from the vent underneath the chassis. FAR from an optimal design. And on a dinky loop with a small pump, I held an 8800 Ultra below 70c, severely upclocked while folding AND gaming at once.

It is always good to do your research and plan ahead, however as long as it is a descent design, you will do well. Don't shoot for getting the ZOMG YOU ROCK award from all of us on your first try.

That being said, what are you looking at for pump, rad, tubing, waterblocks, overclocking, coolant/additives?

My fans are running of my custom made fan controler

It will restrict airflow less, the more air the better.

I'm not sure about the dust filter as I don't own a 922, Deano?

Pantyhose will block the LED light a little but will still look good. Better than dust, that's for sure!

Push/Pull is in reference to fans on a watercooling radiator. Your right on the intake/exhause. Since hot air rises, put the exhaust on the top and back and intake on the fron and sides/bottom.

Ok

In applying the pantyhose, do I need to stretch it as tight as I can? I'm thinking that that would make the holes of the hose bigger.

No,the front filter doesn't have a filter as standard

Really? Damn, I thought it had one. I read somewhere that the HAF922 have it as a standard in the front. Anyway, how do you disassemble the front panel?

EDIT: This site: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/716 shows that it has a dust filter in front including the bays.

Im not 100% sure,stick your hand in between the HDD bay and the fan and see if it does

And IIRC the plastic section at the front just pops off and you'll have 4 screws to unscrew

hey guys. my pc sometimes shuts itself off like the power went out. I think i know why, i think im having a shorting problem on my mobo because my cpu cooler back bracket is touching the mobo frame panel. i know you need the spacers screw to prevent mobo touching the metal frame, but it doesnt stop my cpu cooler bracket from touching the frame because it doesnt allign in the hole. Has anyone else experience this with a haf 932 case and gigabyte ex58- ud4p mobo

I know its an easy solution, just the the hole bigger. but i want to make sure this is the reason to why my pc sometimes shuts down.

Yeah,those cables touching the bracket would create a short.Just cable tie the offending cables to one of the notches on the frame or route them around and secure them by using masking tape
