I only ask because If I turn off my side Panel Fans the temps in my case/GPU's, Chipset etc etc are elevated, sometimes by up to 10 degrees.

Read it in a magazine a few years ago.......think it was MaximumPC or something.

Oh and make it SSD Friendly. The 922 and 932 are NOT SSD Friendly and that is just simply unacceptable in this day and age.

Learn from Corsair 800D and THEN you will have a decent case IMHO.

A lot changes in a few years Digikid.

And I go with personal experience a lot more. Like I said, if I knock out the fans on my side panels I get a very noticeable increase in temps across the boards.

AkG is right too, its where they place the fans as well that makes the difference. I find most cases that have top + SIde Fans do just great for airflow patterns.

I just like to avoid side fans as much as I can....that's all.

To each their own. I prefer them.

Regardless, I am sure the 230mm up front will be adequate. Here is to hoping it doesn't have a Red LED one though :)

I like the looks of my 922. I added the side panel fan and it's the only thing that keeps my 9800GX2 from melting while folding.
