You should check out getting a coolermaster H212+ cooler. it is half the price of the thermaltake and performs probably just as well if not better. i have mine with 2 coolermaster blue led 2000 rpm fans at 75% speed and it is super quiet .

so will this h212+ fit in a HAF 932 and not cover any slots?

Yes. They are both coolermaster products, so I'm sure they've tested to make sure everythign works together, but from experience i can say it does. You'll have to install the ram first though.

I have 4 CM 200 mm case fans, and my video card cooling fan which is 100mm is significantly louder than all the case fans combined. I can highly recommend CM fans, they are quiet and generally move a considerable amount of air.
