Default My new Cooler Master 932 Build

This is my new build with the new Cooler Master HAF 932 case.
Inside I have:
Asus P5Q Pro
C2D E8400 @ 3.6 Ghz
OCZ Reaper DDR2 PC28500
Enermax Infiniti 750W PSU
Sapphire 4850 w/ Accelero S1
2 x WD Caviar 320GB HD
Pioneer 215D


Here is the 932 next to my old NZXT Apollo
. Its a monster.



The side with the large 230mm intake fan. Also a small window.





This pic shows my only complaint with the 932 so far. The Blue led at the top is way too intense. If I turn off the lights, and look at the wall the led's are facing, it looks as if the case is pointing a pocket flashlight.



The Front, with the 230mm red led intake fan:






The Rear, with a 140mm exhaust fan. It also has another opening for a psu if you prefer the psu up top. Otherwise it has holes for a water kit.



The Top, with the 230mm exhaust fan. The extra holes allow for 2 120mm or 140mm fans to be added.



Kinda dusty, sorry.











A pic showing the red led on the front intake fan





This is the side panel with the giant 230mm fan. There is also a window above. See those extra holes near the fan? Four 120mm fans can be attached as replacement for the 230mm.





The 230mm exhaust fan on top of the case. That's 30mm bigger than the Antec 1200 case fan.





The Hard Drive Bay. The tool-less install was much easier than the Apollo.
The front 230mm fan cools the HD.




The OCZ Vendetta 2 cooling my E8400. Notice the nice cable management.









My Sapphire 4850 with an Accelero s1 rev2.
I have an S-Flex mounted on the Accelero.




My Enermax Infiniti 720W. There is a vent under the PSU where the 135mm fan is facing.





Notice the square hole on the panel. This allows you to unscrew your hsf without taking out the entire mobo.




Here is something for people with water cooling. Lifting up the rubber mat exposes a fillport

You did the same thing as I did with my CM690 case and cut out the back to get to the motherboard so I can take the bolts off my HSF with out removing everything. Nice job and nice build. I like that case.

Actually, it came like that. It's really good that companies like CM are paying attention.

Very nice case, your build is pretty good. Nice cable management. Nice small touch by CM to add a hole for fillport.

The motherboard looks minuscule in that case! Very nice job with the cables... I especially like the cable ties on the video card HSF.
