Default HAF 932 has finally arrived

All the pics are in my photobucket album just because theyre massive. This thing is better than my antec 900 in every way. Tool-less design makes adding and removing things much easier, especially hard drives. Theres open space all around the mobo so im not trying to squeeze my hands in anywhere to hook everything up. The psu can be mounted properly without modding and there are cutouts in the mobo tray everywhere you would need them, again without modding. All of the fans also come with 3pin to molex connectors that are very long so they can easily reach anywhere in the case, plenty of spots to use all the included zipties to organize cables behind the motherboard tray as well.
Overall theres only a few cons ive found so far with this case. First one is really just my opinion but it would be nice to have a full window on the side panel rather than a huge mesh covering for the fan. The power led is WAY too bright. And the motherboard standoffs and screws that were included are garbage. I stripped 3 of them just trying to secure the motherboard in just enough so that it didnt move around.

I'm glad your enjoying your HAF932, i agree that its way better then the 900 (i poke fun about it to my friend everyday at school ). I upgraded from a CM690 so it was a extreme move for me. I agree the power LED is too bright.. i can't sleep when its on. I'm thinking of marking it with a black marker or something. Also later your going to notice that dust is your worse enemy.... you can make your own custom fan filters with stockings perhaps?

I guess you could use those fabric softener shhets, then it'd smell nice too! Man, HAFs are nice. I'd like to upgrade to one someday, or maybe one of the CM Storms. :F (off in dream world)

I found a solution to the power leds. I took one of those black stickers that youre supposed to use for an optical drive so you dont see the grey part of it where the clips for the drive bay covers normally are, and stuck it over the leds. Its the perfect size and no light goes through it at all :D

I use a dryer sheet on the intake, and it makes the room smell really nice! Those static sheets won't build up any static at all. They're pretty good for dust catchers, although they do restrict airflow somewhat.

Not sure if anyone else encountered this problem or if it was just my particular case, but the casters are a PITA to get on there. One or 2 screws go in easily but then its like the holes dont line up properly. Took me about 45 mins just to get them on there, and the one doesnt have the 4th screw in all the way lol

The casters are cheaply built. Mine lasted all of a week before they gave out under the weight...SNAP. Back to the feet! LOL

Good to know about the wheels. I was going to put them on, but if they are that junk, forget it, I'll stick to the feet
