The Official Cooler Master HAF X/932/922/912(+) Club - Page 598

post #5971 of 23525
Hey guys, I've been eying on getting a 922 case for a couple days now. I sadly did not do enough googling when I bought my Antec 900 case and after finding out how terrible the cable management is I've got some serious buyer's remorse lol.

So what do you guys think? Sell off my 900 and make the switch?

How much room do you have available? Can you go 22" tall or are you having to fit it under a low desk?

Cause the 922 is pretty decent. But the 932 is better depending on where you mount your PSU.

On the bottom you'll more than likely need a 20/4 pin extension and 4 or 8 pin extension.

Top mount you shouldn't need either. Though top mount you lose your upper 230mm.

It's not cheap though but sometimes you can get good deals from Newegg.

Right now you can get the 922 for $160 w a 500w PSU. If you like CM models though.

For $139 after $20 rebate you could get a FT HAF 932. I don't recommend the red version though since it comes with only one Red LED fan.

But the *Blue* HAF 932 that is solely sold by Newegg and no other source is also $160 as the 922 is.

But neither have PSUs'. If you can get along without a PSU, I would suggest bumping up. You will LOVE the ability to sleep in your case if you wanted to.

I hate CM but they made a near indestructible case. It's a nice change after having too much experience with flimsily built cases.

Here's a link for the Red 932 version just for specs purposes unless you are set on Red of course.

HAF 932

After looking at that 900, I would definitely sell that and move into a HAF. Is it me or did Antec not think about tooless design much. I mean you have 120s' in the HDD rack mounted with adapters that are held in with thumbscrews. But no clips for the HDDs' or the 5.25s'?

Don't get me wrong I'm not ripping your case selection so much as I am pointing out a serious design flaw. Antecs' are NORMALLY much better than that.

I had a 900 before the 932 and it was a nightmare for space. You could spend all day just trying to get your optical drives and blanking plates lined up.

I just switched from a 900 to a 932 its like night and day with the cable management. Its a lot quieter then the 900 and i didnt have to mod the piss out of it to make everything work.

Now just need a good Modular psu to go with it as the one i got now is not cable management friendly.

Just an FYI. The OEM paint is really powder coat. That's why it's so hard to remove.

Totally agree with this and yes, Ceadderman, the HAF X does have the extra slots for USB brakets as well as double slot video cards being in the bottom slot of the MB. I have this issue with my current build but solved it with a Thermalright Spitfire installed on my 250GTS with the heat sink pointing up.

I think it is easier to sleeve fans in 1/8th, the sleeve doesn't crimp out when you bend it like 1/4. Just something to watch up for though if you do use 1/8th is to stagger your solder / shrink joints so you don't get a tiny buldge. Sometimes I am lazy and this is the result.




And as said before me the factory powder coating is on there good. Best to use to a chemical stripper to get off, or your gonna go through sand paper super quick.
