build update: ups stopped early (those guys are great ) dropped off my koolance shroud and yate loons, gonna have to cut the i/o panel to accommodate the new shroud on top
I disagree partly. I don't think you have to soldier to make hiding cables (especially fans) easier. In my build, I had 8 fans and you can't see one lone fan cable or connection with an extension cable. Sleeving is important though.

Not saying soldiering is a watse of time. Its kinda like icing on a cake. Its just that some cakes are nicer without icing.

soldering in a sense of minimizing wires , if one doesnt want to go down the route no biggie, as you mentioned hiding them would be a alt to minimize clutter and/or appearance. I have a total of 18 fans, so im taking that soldering route to minimize lines and clutter. neat skill btw

Hey guys, anyone have problems with the stock fans being noisy? My front fan (the one in front of the HDD cage) on my 932 seems to be angry... any ideas? Or should I just replace the fan? The case is about 2 months old.

if its louder than the top or side fans, u might, check it, remove it and test if you can

It's probably(your 230mm) not tight. If it's loose at all or if it's not uniformly tightened(one side more so than the other) then it will be noisy until you tighten it properly. I didn't have that problem because I took it down to bare chassis, but this is probably the biggest complaint or issue for 932. "My fan is so noisy" or "my HDD is so noisy" and both of them are more likely tied into each other.

So you might want to make sure all screws are not too tight but snug.

Been a while since I been in these forums (not enough time in the day!!) Just wanted to put some updates in:
  • gtx 260 sli swapped out for 5870 CF
  • All 230 fans but front have been replaced with Antec red 120mm (4x on panel 3x on top)
  • 4 red cathodes been added (3 inside one outside) with 2 switches on front drive bay. If anyone knows where I can find a nice drive bay cover for the switches please let me know.

Take a look and let me know what you think. I am waiting on my new PSU, looking to do a little more cleanup with the wiring, and may take everything apart and paint the inside because I see every one else all painted and it looks sick!


Before I received the second 5870:


Both 5870 before some cable mgmt and adding second pair of cathodes:


Cathodes off:

its funny , but i must admit , the black inside changes the look soo much , even different colors , anything looks better than the plain grey bare metal look.

don't know if cm did this on purpose , maybe they knew people would want to paint it and just left the primer color there to make it easier to do

Today I was folding with my CPU and my two GPU's and was concerned about the 96C my two GPU's were at so I thought I'd put the side panel on my HAF 932 for the first time in the two weeks or so since I built it and all the temps went down!

The two GPU's dropped to about 90-91C and the CPU cores dropped by about 4C each.

And that with my H50 exhausting the case.

I'm impressed.
