Thumbs up My 'green' HAF932 *heavy pics*

Hey guys

I finally received my green LED fans (CoolerMasters R4) today, here's what the HAF 932 looks like now! (To those wondering, the fans arent too bad - do not trust the 90cfm/19dBA, but for the price they are good- , they seems to move alot of air, one fan is quite silent, 8 of them together make 'some' noise (less than a hair dryer don't worry ) , but it can't be worst than when I had my watercooling back last year with Panaflo's on my rad :rtfm: now that was alot of noise - I'll probably end-up switching to some Nanoxia's FX+12 1250RPM and just put some cathodes in the case instead for more silence, but since I'll be getting San Aces for the TRUE-120, I better adapt to the sound )

This weekend I'll do some paint job to make the interior darker (Black & Green) and will also probably be changing the HDD/Power LEDs soon too ^_^

Looks good.
With that many fans (and more than enough airflow) you might consider a fan controller to drop the rpm's a bit. The Zalman fanmate comes to mind as an inexpensive product.

Well as I said, I will probably end up buying quieter fans, so a controller won't be that useful and the fans noise don't really bother me since I put on my headset most of the time ;)
