This may seem like a silly question but, should I continue to run the two 200mm fans that came with the HAF 922 off of the molex power converters provided or can I plug them into the motherboard power ports with out worry of them drawing too much power and risk ruining those power pins?

You can run them off the mobo, I run one of my 230mm fans off the motherboard (red LED). Its perfectly fine so don't worry too much about it.

Nah

I LOVE the look of flat black! I actually do have some CCFL that I've thrown in there, and it really shines off the stuff I want it too, like the H50 tubing, and mobo/gpu.

I know that post wasn't directed towards me, but I have a flat black paint job inside, and its super nice

Flat black didnt work for me at all (rustoleum), even tried a gloss enamel, came out spotty and a dull gloss. decided to go w/ krylon black gloss and gloss cherry red. the gloss does provide a nice reflection off my led fans (all 13 of them ), could have gone w/ satin but i was impressed w/ the reflection the gloss gives, kinda doubting adding the cold cathode (if i can find space for them too) due to the nice glow inside. btw cherry red was used on mobo tray, hdd enclosure, and the mesh inserts on the front to compliment the red/black theme. looks awesome though no oem fit-and-finish

hey guys we had a family get together at my uncles and another uncle that was there gave me a lil bit of cash, i rejected it and said he needs it more but he instisted on me takin it so looks like i got enough money to buy the paint for the case interior, i decided to go with satin black instead of flat black, looked at some pics and although they are very similar i think satin looks better, i also noticed falloutboy used satin black on his "April" build (sweet build by the way one of the best haf932's i've seen) and it looks really great, so as soon as i have time home depot here we come

Make sure to take your time and sand between coats. Also, make sure to lay down lots of light coats, as Satin is not as forgiving as Flat, and if you are OCD or just value a quality paintjob, you don't want to have uneven spots, where you can see some parts are darker/shinier than others... UGLY!

I think I only sanded after the final primer coat before I applied the black paint. Read the can of primer to see how long to wait between coats.
