Coolermaster HAF 932
The HAF 932 case itself is as over the top huge as the box is. It’s not as heavy as you’d imagine, and I think that’s mainly down to the multitude of grills across the chassis; meaning less metal, meaning less weight.
Starting the whistle stop tour of the 932 at the front at the top, we have the front panel which has 4 USB 2.0 slots, a firewire connector, one eSATA port and a mic and headphone jack. The chunky power and reset buttons are situated dead above this. Obviously this is a “stick me on the floor” kind of case
Underneath we have the covers for the 5 1/4″ drive bays which are grilled to prevent dust intake, but there are no dust filters behind them; boo. That said, these are very easy to remove, as you simply slide your fingers into the sides of the covers and push gently, and out they pop.
At the base on the front is a heavily plastic grilled bezel with a Coolermaster logo.
Moving round to the side panel you get quite a cool graphiti-esque glossy “HAF” logo along the side.
Underneath of which is a set of ridge vents to allow some extra air intake; like this case needs it.
Swinging round to a more rear perspective you have a crisscrossed clear window that gives you a view of the innards.
Sitting snuggly beneath you have the first of 2 ridiculous fans. This one’s a 23cm intake. It’s surrounded by another grill – again without dust filter – and many screw slots which seem slightly out of place. It gives this side panel a sort of, unfinished, engineer look. In reality these would allow you to mount water cooling radiators here, though I’m not sure how much space that would leave between them and your internal components.
Taking the side panel off you get a better view of things. The fan uses a molex connector to power it though it has a converter in there allowing to switch to a 3pin connector if preferred.
The cables that come with the HAF are quite numerous. They’re also very long, so make sure to do some cable management with these.
