Can someone who loves their HAF 932 and has had experience with other cases tell me what their truthful pros and more importantly cons of the 932?
Pros - Excelent cable management, heaps of room, big upgradability for fans, pretty quite, easy to work with/mod, tooless mechs. work well, top or bottom mounted psu and I'm sure theres plenty more that just isn't coming to mind.

Cons - unpainted inside, CPU cutout in the mobo tray doesn't always line up with the mobo for installing a cooler (just need to take out the mobo to install one).

Anything else would probably become a matter of opinion.

So Im trying to make a window. I intended on using epoxy to glue the plexiglass to the door. I looked everywhere at Lowes and Meijer but I cant find anything useful to put on the jagged edge where I cut the door with my jig saw. I did a terrible job cutting too. I was looking for a C shaped molding I can stick on the edge. Ive seen quite a few people on here use it. Anyone know where I can get this stuff at? Or anymore ideas for hiding the crappy jagged edge I made? Thanks All.

thanks! noone else answered i noticed on some people the cpu bracket did not line up. I am debating PSU top or bottom. If i do top i am planning to swap it around so the fan is on top as mine seems to get rather warm and do not want to suck in hotter air. just need to redrill the holes i think. also my 480 needs some mega airflow so the added bottom air would be nice. but then again the side fans should do the job. so i am really torn if psu top or bottom

Don't be discouraged either, I had problems with my jigsaw blade and was left with jagged cuts. It just takes some time to smooooth it out with a file.

Yup your fine, just make sure to scuff up all the little corners etc. Clean and wash and let dry for a long while, take a tack cloth or a air compressor to get all of the dust off and paint. Do like 3 or 4 "tack" coats about 10 minutes apart and a few thicker coats to finish. Don't rush and use light coats to avoid runs, let sit for 2 days or longer before you start assembly. Do not touch the cleaned parts with your bare hands or you will need to clean them again.

just a heads up (a con for the list, sorry ) dust can be an issue, the 932 is heavily vented and not filtered from factory, there are ways of managing though (filter, panti hoes, compressed air, etc.).

if your going to wc and take advantage of the factory mountings for a 120/240/360 radiator, go w/ a psu @ the bottom, if your going w/ air, i would recommend top, then you could also mount two 120mm fans on the floor (mountings are ready) to provide direct air to ur 480

edit: you could also go w/ door mounted 120 or stick w/ the oem 230mm fans

They make a 200mm CM? I will look into that. I will also look into 5mm white leds as well to go cheaper. I know my dad has a soldering gun somewhere, as well as my uncle and grandpa.
