The Official Cooler Master HAF X/932/922/912(+) Club - Page 518

post #5171 of 23554
I finished migrating my components from a CM Cosmos case (nice case, but the GPU's got hot after I added the second 5750) to a HAF 932--heat problem instantly solved!

Wheels on big tower cases can be an excellent idea, but those tiny ones with the giant HAF seemed almost silly-small, like hamster feet on an elephant. So I took some wheels from a roll-away toolbox and mounted them on a platform made from a few pieces of leftover lumber.

It's high enough to get the computer well off the floor (easy to work on, and maybe less dust pickup) and very strong.

I've seen similar wheels at major hardware stores, in case anyone else has similar feelings about the small HAF wheels. Apologies to anyone else who's posted with a similar design; I haven't read most of the 500+ pages of existing posts.

Then it would be "FEAR the HAL 932!"

At least till this HAL pulled its coolant lines off and expired in an overheated puddle. Short movie!

I gave my rollers to my brother for the very same reason. In exchange he gave me the feet from his case. I had him pick up longer bolts so I can stack my feet under his feet and double the height off the floor. Unfortunately the added length required that I remove the back half of the PSU stand to bolt them on, since the bolt ran into the flange. No biggee though since I don't plan on having my case perform with Cirque De Sole any time soon.

If I want wheels I plan on purchasing new Craftsman Toolbox Rollers to roll my HAF around. Should be pretty nice.

My brother has his HAF on the wheels and while they're not bad, I just can't bring myself to using the stockers. So all in all it was a good trade imho.

I love the pump placement jmcmtank, same as fallouts, by far the best place to put the pump... I think fallout deserves more rep for the idea

I notice you have a fan on the bottom grill and you did not cut a hole for it. Is it it setup as an intake and if it is, does it make a lot of noise? Mine does so I unplugged it for now.
Bottom fan runs at 1200 rpm...very quiet anyway...but more for looks really than airflow.

Thanks mate. I think that one of the best places to mount the pumps in a HAF especially if theres 2. Looks sweet!

By the way, did you ever figure out where your rep came from?

I may cut the grill to make mine quieter. Thanks for the tip!

Nah, it would just encourage him! Seriously though, I'd thought of that area to mount stuff then dismissed it as I hadn't noticed the gap under the optical drive. That's the crucial bit really as you can use bolts and still have a drive. I definitely copied the res placement however!
