If they had offered color choices of fans I would've already bought a HAF X myself but since they only offer the one of red I don't think the price of the case is worth it when you count in the price of buying a fan color of your choosing. I figured they would've learned from the 932 they offered the blue version and many other fan choices you could buy on your own but guess that would be too much to ask.

I personally would go with the 932. Both a very similar and yes the X comes with filters and the 932 doesn't, but to be honest the 932 has enough room for a 120 at the bottom of the Case at the end of the PSU and the looks are slightly better imho. The X is nice(has all the goodies) plus has the ability to mount another 230 up top but I expect more from a case that I would have to shell out 2 Ben Franklins for.

it depends. the way corsair has it setup, the idea is to blow the air outside of the case(which is cooler) onto the rad. youll most likely have to to experiment with what works best.

for example, in my case i have 2 gtx 470s which are directly below the cpu. if i had it set to blow out of the case, the heat from the cards, which are hotter than the cpu, would rise up and get blown onto the rad. If i have the air blowing into the case, the air going onto the rad is cooler, which gives me lower temperatures, although you would need a proper exhaust setup so the hot air doesnt just stay inside the case

so it really depends on what you have in your case and how your other fans are setup

I'll have a think about the 932 still... i just need a bigger case to be honest and i like the HAF X gpu supporter and GPU fan bay plus the filters in place

As for the fan LED colour... i couldn't care less about that honestly. Some do and i can see why, but it doesn't phase me

Wow 37?

Is your computer in your body? Cause 37c is the same temperature of your body.

Very nice. Are you exhausting or intaking?

Intaking of course.

Exhaust temps would probably be even worse.


I'm running an undervolted Ultra Kaze on the rear with my H50, I have a red Thermaltake fan intaking at the front, and its all going out the top with my 2 120mm XLFs.

I'm tempted to take my side panel off but the acrylic does a good job of masking the UK's click.

I recently purchased a Corsair H50 and am now running it in push/pull configuration, two of my cores are usually hotter than the other two.
My question is do I have to tighten the screws or how would I go about getting the two hotter cores cooler?
