Do you guys hook all the fans of the 922 up to the motherboard or do you use molex connectors?

When I had the system up and running on just air, I had the fans connected to the motherboard. Some people change it up to connect to fan controllers but there is no reason why you can't use the fan headers on your system board.

When I water cool this case, I will have to look at how I want to connect things up and may put my radiator fans on a Fan controller but keep the rear case fan and front case fan on the motherboard headers - might as well use them since they are there.

That reminds me, I saw the new Lamptron that was announced

http://www.overclock.net/hardware-ne...oller-new.html

I think it would look amazing on the front of my case...I'm sticking with the red and black theme for sure. Any idea on when this will be available? And if it's worth the wait?

I've got no experience changing out LEDs, and the red ones are a must. How hard is it to switch them out?

Looking at the product photos for the new Sniper, it looks like it shares the exact same guts as the 922 at first glance. I have a sneaking suspicion that the new Storm Sniper window side panel would fit on the HAF 922.

Have a look...
The Storm Sniper:

The HAF 922


The optional side panel for the Sniper:


I'm doing a custom window but hmmmmmmm - I wonder if it would fit

Unfortunately it is not listed on the CMStore yet - just in the accessories product page.
You can buy a 922 Window on the Asian CM store,maybe it will make an appearance soon ?

I personally like my Scythe Kaze Master, its sharp, and does the job well. Also, it accepts generic temp probes, like the ones I have from Alphacool for my waterloop, but it does come with some stick on temp probes as well.

True enough but they don't even sell the windowed case here yet so I'm going to just build my own custom window. Interesting thing about the Sniper panel is the size of that window, you could show off a lot more of your system guts with that compared to the HAF 922 version (whether that is good or bad depends on what you have done inside the case)

I've got a Green Viral theme going for my HAF but I couldn't find the fan controller I really wanted so I had to go with the Sunbeam Windmill. It's got a blue background but it should be able to do what I need it to. It has 7 channels that can take 10W apiece. I've got 14 fans in my case so I needed a lot of control.

I've been wondering this though:

If I put two fans on a controller line spliced... will the controller read the rpm's correctly? Will it be doubled? Never seen anything about how it would work on the site.

I'm just wondering why people (like me) who have the side window-paneled haf 922 (which is MORE readily available in our place) want the side mesh-paneled haf 922 and people in the USA have that vice-versa, lol.
