what fans are those that you have on the rad?? they look sweet!
I also had the HAF932 beforehand that was in a pretty bad state with screwholes and waterleak stains and whatnot everywhere. I absolutely love the HAF X. I personally think for the amount of new features you get in the HAF X, it definitely makes it worth the change from the HAF932 to the HAF X.

Those fans are Noiseblocker Multiframe 1800rpms, not the PWM ones.

It might be cheaper for you to just replace the broken fans and put the H50 on a push/pull with 2 San Ace 120 X 120 X 38mm fans and then buy a cheap Ultra Kaze 120 X 120 X 38mm fan and gut it and use that as a shroud for the push side and you will defiantly see a huge decrease in temps for much cheaper than buying a whole new case. PM me and let me know if you need some more clarification on this.

My own case is barely holding together. Three of the four included fans have broken and there is no way for me to organize my wiring enough to allow for better airflow.

I want to know if buying this case and returning my H50 (I have a very limited budget) would be worthwhile if I just went back to air cooling.

My case as it is with the H50 is a veritable turbine.

Thanks in advance,

Hey all, I chose a HAF 922 for my first build and I'm glad I did. I love the space and the little features that made it easy for a first time builder to get through it with ease. I'll admit, it's a lot bigger than the prebuilts I'm used to and it's harder to find a place for it to sit, but it's worth it for the space, airflow, and customization that it affords. Lurking through the thread, I see a lot of rigs to envy and ideas I might try. I do have a couple questions for you guys, though. First: would removing the extra hard drive mounts that I'm not using make a noticeable difference in air flow? Second is about the side fan. I like the non-LED top fan on the 922 but I can't really find any 200mm fans without an LED, even in the Cooler Master online store. The only non-LED 200mm fans I've found are an NZXT and an Antec, both of which people have said will not fit the holes for the 922. If I can't find a suitable, is it possible to either cut the wires to the LED on another fan (or otherwise cover/disable them) or use zip ties to attach another fan?

If I'm understanding your question properly, yes you can simply cut the wires for the LED's on the fan and then use the fan normally.

Finally managed to get push/pull fans on my ThermoChill PA140.3. Took me ages as loads of stuff decided to break/leak etc.

Hi guys, am planning a 360 RX or BIX up top and another 240 slim GTS on the rear of the HDD bays...any ideas on tubing? Thi is for a HAF X.

Was wondering if I should put the res and pump on top of the PSU area? I have a EK 150 tube res and a 355 swiftech pump.

The system will have a water cooled CPU and GPU. Specs in my sig..

My main issue is the routing for the tubing as I want it as clean as possible, with very few angled connectors.
