The Official Cooler Master HAF X/932/922/912(+) Club - Page 421

post #4201 of 23567
I've been pondering my fan setup lately. Currently, I've got:

Front stock intake: 110 cfm
Side Storm Force intake: 142 cfm

Rear Scythe slipstream exhaust: 70 cfm
Top stock exhaust: 110 cfm

Total positive pressure: 72 cfm intake

Do 922's do better with negative pressure? I'm thinking of doing one of two things.

1. swapping the side fan with the front, and making the old front fan a side exhaust for a total change of 151 cfm of exhaust. Or

2. Change the side to exhaust and move the rear fan to the bottom as an intake, with a net result of 61 cfm exhaust, giving me a negative pressure setup at the expense of losing a rear exhaust (but I'd still have the top, would that be enough?)?

I could always add another intake to the bottom to offset the exhaust, or would I be better off with some other setup?

Got all my painting and wiring finished on my CM HAF 922, thought i'd post them to see what you all think. Sorry about the bad pictures, my cam needs a lot of light for it to work right.

Sleeving under uv

Back wiring

Inside with uv


looking through the side panel with uv cc


looking through the side panel with blue cc


I did not want to keep opening my case to turn on or off the cc's so i did some cutting on my 5.25 flippy converter

when painting how did you guys stop from painting the mesh stuff on the front? just taping over it?,id be scared i missed some tape somewhere and accidently paint it
Well there will be a lot of us here looking forward to checking out your build log with that color scheme.

Check out AC Ryan blackfire4 fans. Also, frozencpu and performance-pcs both sell quite an assortmant of orange LED fans and accessories.

Check my build log for mesh removal tips. Short version: You can use your soldering iron to heat up the plastic enough to release the steel black mesh from the side pieces. All the other mesh pieces can be easily removed by bending the tabs straight.

thanks para hopefully i can whip up something good looking, although i am very new to this stuff, as for soldering i probably wont go near that as i dont trust myself haha, it shouldnt be too hard to tape over the mesh but, as im planning on leaving all the mesh black

oh and i live in australia, so im not sure i would be able to buy from those places.

Update: Using a compressor and paint gun: have to run several coats as the gun sprays very thin. Finished the primer this morning (about 6-7 complete coats), dried very quickly. did 4 coats (again, my gun applies a very thin coat) of the Rostoleum flat black, Im really liking the outcome, still wanna run a few more coats of the flat black and then clear coat. cant finish today, have to go to work. still, some challenges using a compressor/spray gun, dont have filter or dryer, so i have to watch the condensation as it will spray over the piece, sucks. I went w/ Rostoleum bcus they were the only brand that was avail in a can (@ walmart), not spray. plus each can was $8 @ 32 oz compared to $4 for a 10-12 oz spray can, i have about 2/3 of the primer can left and i speculate i will have 1/2 of the can of flat black left. clear coat, also rustoleum, is spray and probably will done this weekend. I have no complaints about Rustoleum, did not have a need to hunt for "special" enamel or certain brand, it works on metal surfaces. cant complain until i have it all together. ill post some pics, nothing exciting but makes my haf's interior look better than stock. btw, the flat black paint does smell a bit, if your going w/ this brand, have a well ventilated area and let it dry for a 1-2 days, primer no stink, lol

Australia has a few good modding/smaller parts places that I know of. PM me if your interested in finding out what they are.
