While running on air my temps did not raise at all with it on though so I would say it did not hurt it at all. With this case, you have about 1" extra on the outside of the fans with just open holes for pleanty of dust and pet hair to get into, so that is why It was placed up on top.

I do not have it on at all anymore as that is where my RAD is located and I do not want to restrict any flow from that.

Now I am looking at seeing wht to add to close all the extra holes around my RAD. We will see.....

Actually,
I hadn't thought of that. The top fan bay is a pretty big hole and as dust usually falls then when your HAF goodness isn't on and blowing air out, then dust would just fall through onto you precious pc bits. So I guess if you weren't noticing any major temp hikes, then you were onto a good thing. In fact I want a top fan filter now (Although I may just lay a cloth over it when its not on)
Good looking case dude

Really, I panty-hoed all my intake fan's. They clog up quick though. Have to clean them every 2 weeks. Just shows you how much air these cases circulate.

Yup, I cut out the mesh, made a custom frame and put in a window instead. Triggs replaced his panel entirely with the optional Storm Sniper window panel which does fit the 922 but you do have to put in new rear screw holes (which is why they dropped support for the 922 on their site - we know it fits don't we guys!!)

I was going to put a fan there but thought, nahhh it has a ton of airflow as it is and my water cooling doesn't need that much more air blowing into the case.

I have one alot of painting on alot of surfaces, and I have found that enamul is substantially easier to paint with, as well as is more forgiving, and takes a bit less time/coats to get the job done well. The lacquer IMO if you put in the time on it, and have some skills/experience for the multiple coats, then double coat it with clear coat to really make it gleam, it will look better in the long run.

Also, the drive bays, the slide out portion REALLY seems to be a tight fit, and hence easily scuffed. If you swap out drives alot, I think those will end up being scuffed.

In general the standard sand, wipe down (do get the dust off, you want the paint to stick to the part, not the sanding dust), dry, primer, paint, paint, clear coat, 2nd clear coat (depending on the clear coat itself). Also, if you do make an error, get some minor orange peeling, or bubbling, simply let it dry for several hours, the use a fine sand paper piece and touch up the areas crack by crack/bubble by bubble, rerinse, dry and a single coat of paint, and you should be good to go. I have definitly spent some time touching mine up.

Hope this helps.

being noob to the modding scene, I immediately molested my haf932 by painting my case flat black w/ no sanding no primer and no idea on what im doing:swearing: see here http://www.overclock.net/6492941-post951.html...

after much lurking in this thread, i felt ashamed as everyone's 932 looked really nice except mine so in order to redeem myself i started to murder and rape my case again...modding is at 60% percent completion so bear with me. worklog in the next few weeks...
