I know people said it was a big case but compared to my older case....they werent joking

You'll be able to hide all of your wires from your power supply behind the motherboard. If you look back at my post you can see how I did it.

Why yes, I do believe you are right!
I forgot about that space underneath the watercooling fill point!

Helllo!!! So I started putting everything together last night with my HAF and run into a few problems and questions.

I have:

1) I7 920
2) EVGA x58 Motherboard
3) 6 Gigs Corsair Dominator Memory
4) Corsair 1000 PSU
5) PCIe X-Fi Titanium Fata1ity Soundblaster
6) Coolermaster V8
7) 2 DVD drives
8) 2 HDs
9) Nvidia EVGA GTX 285

1 ?:
I can install the the X-fi in PCIe slot #3 and 1? Having the 285 in slot 1 blocks the 1x PCie slot. I've read some forums and people have said this is ok even though the EVGA manual says the three main PCie slots are for graphics cards.

2nd:
Installing the DVD drives. So I remove the mesh covers and there there is a metal plate behind it that looks like it's part of the case's hull. Do I just push the drives in and the black plate flips up or do I take them off? I would assume you'd want to be able to keep them and push them down if you remove a drive but i'm sure they snap off pretty after being pushed back down once or twice.

3rd:
I love the Corsair 1000 PSU. Only thing I don't like it is it looks like it's not going to allow me to mount a fan on the bottom because it's so long. Well, at least not traditionally mount. For the 8 pin 12V power connection for the CPU it's a bit rought getting it go from the back of the case and up through the top left hole and plug it in. The cable is pretty stiff and twisting it around to go through the hole and then turn it backs makes the wire possibly rest of the top EVGA heatsink. If I pull the cable through the front of the case it's much easier to manipulate and it's not so taught. Of course then the there's this wire in front of all my cards that would need to be removed to be able to take the cards out and it doesn't look too nice. :-) Can an 8 pin ATX 12 volt extension be plugged into the main cable coming from the CPU or is this a bad idea?

Look forward to posting pics and being more active here once I can actually get this thing together and turn it on and have it work! :-b Thanks in advance!

1. Well, I think you should be able to put them in any slot you want.
2. Yea, all of those metal things in the drive bays pop-out.
3. I think the HAF comes with a extension... mine did.

New owner here. =) i thought of going water cooling, but after i bought everything i kinda over budget, so i didn't get water cooling now, planning to get a air CPU cooler, the HAF932 should be okay as an air cooling casing right? =P

Don't plug in the Power LED wires. and you don't have that problem. lol. there's no need for the stupid light, I never plug those in my mobo's.
That's exactly what I did. Job done!

My lights aren't that bright, not annoyingly bright at least. But aren't they, at least the drive one, suppose to flicker when the drive is being accessed? Mine are just constantly light up.
