Nice! I like the cold cathode hidden up top. That's a great place to put those. Now you have to Mod out those blue LEDs in your PSU.

Yea its a work in progress. I'm definitely shocked at all the positive feed back I am getting because I look at some of the best builds and go "damn, why can't I build pcs like that," but this time I might actually have. Atleast now I see what 110% effort put into it yields xD.
To be honest, I'm too lazy to mod out those blue LEDs in my power supply , I think I will just buy a new one that either has no LEDs in it or just a Red LED fan in it to really set off the look.
Thanks once again for the positive feedback. I'm looking forward to some future mods :thumpsups

Rustoleum Satin Black will match better than anything else. The stock paint on the HAF is also a satin finish. I tried a bunch of blacks before I settled on that one. It does need overnight to dry properly, but it is also very forgiving for a novice painter in that it will not turn out blotchy like many of the pictures you might see of people's paint schemes- So long as you don't make it run. If you have a need to or want to match the plastic pieces on the front and top of your case both in texture and color exactly, use the Rustoleum Textured Black(See Pictures). The satin can looks identical, so it should be easy to find. See my sig link for build log pictures if you want to confirm the look. The 3rd picture here is for quick reference.

I second that. Rustoleum Satin Black FTW!

So I just joined today and have been working on my HAF 932 for a few days now. I just have a few questions if someone could help me out here. I have an Swiftech MCR220QP Rad and a Swiftech MCB-120 Radbox. I was wondering where I should mount it.

A. Outside the case on the 120/140mm fan, vertically with the barbs facing the case or facing away?

B. On top of the case above the 230mm fan, horizontally with the barbs facing up or down to the case? Then reversing the fan to blow the heat out of the case instead of intake?

OR

C. Inside the case in place of the 230mm fan, horizontally with the barbs down?

Any ideas will be helpful. If need be I can take some pics in about 8 hours to show what I mean. :-)

The beauty of the 932 is the amount of space you have to play with up top. Like several others in here have done, I would mount the radiator inside in the top of your case with some nice 120mm fans blowing out. I'm a big fan of having a clean looking case which is why I mod'd my 922 to fit all my radiators internally even though it was a wee bit tight. End result, a clean looking case with no hoses hanging out of it.

If you mount internally, you won't need the radbox and can return it / exchange it to put towards some nice 120mm fans.

If you are going with a basic black, of course primer it, but I went with Engine block gloss paint. Its cheap, VERY durable and doesn't care about heat, or any cooling additive you spill on it.

Thanks so much for the help with the paint. I'm going to go with the Rustoleum Satin Black paint. I'm guessing that I need to also use primer... any suggestions?
