HAF 932 Top 5.25" Slot

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I just got my HAF 932 today, and when I went to go install the optical drive, the top optical bay seems to be hitting against something. When I push on it, it doesn't open, and the top of it is hitting against the top panel.

Ohhhhhh nooooooooooooo!

You got a defective case - lol! Sorry it was too tempting.

Take off the front panel and twist off the metal pertaining to the 5.25" bay you need to use.

That's it!

You scared the crap outta' me for about 3 seconds. And what do you mean by twist off the metal?

Good thing it wasn't for 4 seconds - lol!

This question gets asked more than you know.

I don't know why Cooler Master keeps those blank metal plates (which have some holes in them) there - they all should be off IMO which will help even more with cooling.

Let me confirm this, you take off the top 5.25" bay cover without taking the front panel off and when you try to place an optical drive in there it doesn't go that far in.

I'm not actually putting the optical drive in, just pushing on the bottom of the metal plate with holes with my finger, and all the other ones open like that, except for the top one, which is hitting some plate at the top part.

Are you doing this with the front panel on?

If so take the front panel off and get those metal plates completely off forever on the front 5.25" chassis bays.

Would the front panel be the USB and Audio panel?

Behind the mesh screen 5.25" bay cover is a metal plate that looks honey combed, this piece of honey comp metal plate is an unnecessary part of the case simply work that plate back and forth until it snaps out then install your optical drive.

See the photo below though not your case the principle is the same - see the top 5.25" is open while the rest have those metal plates with holes? The metal plate(s) need to be twisted back and forth till they break off hence making the opening like the very top one in this photo, then you can install an optical drive.

Would this be what you're talking about?



I just tore the last of mine out last night and I noticed with the top one, it made it easier to manipulate it from the inside. Definitely impedes the airflow so I suggest they be removed anyhow.

That's what the OP is talking about which I just attached a photo in my other post to make it easier to understand.
