The Official Cooler Master HAF X/932/922/912(+) Club - Page 853

post #8521 of 23536
I have to say for me it was down to 2 Cases.

Cosmos

And 800D.

But then I saw my Bro's 932 up close and how frigging awesome it was put together.

I just had to have one after that. The dB level of the fans is nearly non-existent. They have TONS of room for upgrades and additions. I could see that they're fairly easy to Mod and while they aren't a streamlined look like the Cosmos or the D, they have a cool MechWar look about them.

After that only thing that swayed my choice was price. Hell with shipping I paid as much as if I bought a Cosmos at the Fry's over in Portland.

And I can see why someone would want to go from a D to a 932. The Airflow in the D is good. The airflow in the HAF 932 is just better unless you get the Limited Edition Case or the Black. Both of which have the picture window in the door and no fan there.

Also if you're not chained down to a 3.5 device, you get more options in the 5.25 Bays.

And the HDD rack is just setup better in the 932 (imho) with the 200/230 blowing right over them. My RAID setup never gets above 31c with that big sucker blowing across them. Hell CM could have chucked the HDD vents on the sides since they serve no purpose that the fan didn't already address. They're only there to cover CM's ass should people decide that it's a case issue rather than a faulty drive or some other random occurrence. 800D should have them since they only have the one fan on them and it blows across the drives to the side if someone mounts the fan there instead of covering it with the door.

Just no way anyone can put a D up against a 932(or X for that matter) and have better airflow. The HAF series just outclasses in that regard. I don't think that there is a Cabinet that touches it either. But I may be biased.

If you go back to somewhere around page 50, I was really unhappy with CM. I'm very vocal when it comes to poor customer service. So I trashed the company, but really can't trash the 932. Other than the laser bright Power/HDD LEDs' and the upside down USB hub in the I/O panel this thing is extremely well engineered. If I were the engineers I would have allowed for the pcb to be 180'ed with taller pcb screw mounts and a cutout in the top to accept the change in depth and used different LEDs'. Viola! Fixed, easy peasy.

I'd have to agree with you man. When the HAF X came out I went from wanting a 800D to my new wife (Don't tell my real wife I said that ok =D). The HAF X (Since I don't have experience with the 932) meets or surpasses the 800D in all but one area... Price. In that area it falls well behind which I am happy for since I didn't have to shell out the extra money for the 800D. Mine is a cable management dream and with the exception of the USB ports being upside down (why they did it I don't know lol) But that's livable. So what if I have to turn a cable over lol.This case had all I wanted and more. In fact since I haven't posted any pics of my build on here yet I am gonna upload them and post a few of my Wife in all of her glory (No perverts I'm not posting naked pics of my real wife lol). Stay tuned and I'll post in about half an hour after I load the 30 or so I have into image shack so I can post them on the thread.

Here's the pic's I promised.
Case Closed =D

My cards (the Beauties)

The Damm CM V10 takes up most of my huge case if you can believe that lol.

A Half A$$ed shot of the PSU powering this beast

My organized mess of wires that is better than it was if you can believe that.

A Shot of the only "Case Mod" I have done which is put a fan where it isn't supposed to go lol.

My cases full frontal nudity

We cant forget my disc drives =D


I know I have a lot to do but with me out of work its all about having the cash to do it with. Let me know what you think. I'm thinking of adding a couple of cathodes to brighten up the case a bit but I want to find true red ones so my case isn't pink or orange.

Where do you have your USB 3 cables going to inside the case?

Get the Yates Nate. Only 2 CFM less than yours if you get the High Speeds and much brighter than those R4s' for roughly the same price as CC tubes.

Sitting here working on the sleeving by the way and not wanting to leave the work table where the AC is blowing over. Freakin hot today an it's playing hell with melting the shrink but I'm basically melting this stuff under the edge of the table and in my lap.

Geez it needs to cool down soon. Sucks being in an upstairs arrangment with zero breeze.

Yeah I know what's with the damm weather up here man. It will be so cold you need a jacket one day and then 90 the next. I have my AC blowing 60f (about 15.5c) air on my computer and since I sit here all day then it's pretty nice for me.

Hey Ceadder eat your heart out man... This should be worth a couple of REP points since I got it from the big wigs over at Corsair themselves. Happy Bday and Merry Xmas wrapped all in one man. Here is the official Wiring Diagram for the Corsair HX850 Power supply.


post #8529 of 23536
I used that diagram when I sleeved my psu, I got it off another site, , never seen it say it was exclusive for Corsair though.

Hey Im still listed as an owner, lol, the 932 is an awesome case, I managed to squeeze TWO xspc rs360 rads into it, but I needed three of them so I gots a new case ↓↓↓↓↓



Ceadder, thanks for your advised dude, I just pulled the trigger on a 955BE. cant wait to get that baby up to 4.0 on a new supreme hf nickel
post #8530 of 23536
No problem bro, it's what i do.

I know you gots a new Case, but one can hope that you return to your senses before your makeshift desk craps out and everytin comes crashin to the floor.

You want I should remove you once I get to updating the lists?

Oh and yes, I hit 3.8 on button OC w/o any trouble. Ran it for a couple of hours before I went back in and shut it down in the BIOS. 4.0 will be nothing, with your EK cooling system keepin everything chill.
