5 out of 5 eggsvery user friendly

Pros: I haven't built many computers.
3 yrs ago I build a desktop for myself with an Antec 900-- then 2 months ago I upgraded its internals.

Last week, I build a computer for my friend with this case (it was on sale for $140 shipped).

Now, mind you, I'm comparing this new HAF 932 to my rather older Antec 900. Other contemporary cases, may have all of these same features, and I can't tell you why to buy this one versus other new ones. I can only tell you, I liked it.

--it has a 2.5" drive holder! On my 900, I had a convoluted arrangement to take 5.25 to 3.5, and paid $10 for some stamped sheet metal to take 3.5 to 2.5"

--the drive holders are all on slide-out trays with quick release buttons. VERY user friendly. I had to aim those little screws through little slots on the 900... not a problem, but it's a nice touch on the haf 932

--3 LARGE fans. 240mm is much quieter than a bunch of 120mm fans. I installed an older evga x58 ATX motherboard, and to plug the fans directly into the mobo and not through the molex, I did have to rotate 2 of the fans to put the wires in a better place. No problem.

--BIG. if you're building a nice desktop, one extra cubic foot really shouldn't concern you. This thing will take an ATX extended if I want to in the future, and the extra inch here or there really makers setup so much easier. I worked as a car mechanic, and hated worming my hand in between the tight engine compartment cavities. Sometimes, the Antec 900 would be a bit tight too. You can make a very clean, very fast build with the room in this case. Lots of space behind to hide wires, too.

Other nice touches...
--you can mount the psu upside down for better cooling
--there's a cutaway to install an aftermarket cpu cooler, AFTER mobo installation, if you later upgrade.
--the rear 140mm fan has predrilled holes for a 120mm, if you choose to change (like, a 120mm water cooler being installed)
--the top 240mm fan has predrilled holes for 2 120mm fans side by side (like, an h100i water cooler being installed).

--quick releases for everything else, too-- the 5.25" bays, the rear slots (I did break one before I figured the rear slot release).

Like I said, I don't know if all other current cases are just as large, user-friendly, and give just as many options. Maybe they do.
But it was a pleasant experience from my antec 900. Which I still like, mind you-- but on the antec 900, I had to bring out the hacksaw and drill to make some fans mount correctly. The haf 932 seems to have thought through all the possibilities already.

Other than that, it's quiet, fans are quiet... bearing noise on first startup went away after a few seconds.

Cons: rear slot cover quick releases not immediately obvious; broke one. Felt like an idiot after I realized how it worked, and of course, I could easily remove the broken toggle and replaced it with a conventional screw.
No problem at all really.

Some others commented on the lack of dust screens. I don't have an informed opinion. On my antec 900, somne of the dust screens were so difficult to access that I removed them anyway.
Perhaps, another case has external screens that can be slid out without unscrewing a single panel. Now that would be nice.

Other Thoughts: would buy again, if i had to build another desktop. More likely, will be holding on to this case for 6 years, and in 3 years just upgrade the cpu/gpu/mobo but keep the same case.
It works, why not keep it?

2 out of 5 eggsPoor Quality

Pros: Nice Tower with great cooling capability

Cons: Unit was shipped with the front panel USB ports installed up side down. When I submitted a complaint with Cool Master tech support I was told there is no recommended orientation of USB ports. It is a shame that all the people making USB cables don't know that. It would save them the time of putting that little orientation symbol on the connectors. It would appear there is no way to remove or replace the front panel USB ports if they were damaged. Not good for a pricey tower.

Other Thoughts: If you don't know what you are talking about then try not to answer a basic question

5 out of 5 eggsMonster

Pros: -Absolutely huge!!! Towers over my previous case (Rosewill CRUISER)
-Beautiful scratch-resistant paint job inside and out.
-All accommodations have been made for those that want liquid cooling

Most importantly, the back-plane is very easy to use when it comes to cable management. In my case, you can see probably 5% of the wires.

Cons: This case is apparently out of production? Made me sad when I had to find it on e*ay to get it. Would've gladly purchased from Newegg if they still had it. :'(

Also, this case is very dark at night without my monitor on. If you decide to get this model case, pick up some LEDs if you plan on showing it off in the dark

Other Thoughts: The new HAF 932 Advanced is nice, but it would be better to have the option to replace the mesh side panel with this acrylic window

5 out of 5 eggsBlack Out

Pros: Base is Black. Black Black Black. Seriously the case is Black. Has a huge Bay window for display. Fits the 12 inch video cards easy.

Cons: Big Bright Red Fan in the front. To be fair I knew it was coming. I would have liked to replace the 230 mm fan easy but it appears their support is recommending a 200 mm replacement.

Other Thoughts: Could use a HAF branded fan control bay module.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall Great Case, Few Minor Flaws

Pros: TONS of space, good airflow, very quiet (even with all 4 fans going), heavy duty construction, looks great

Cons: As others have mentioned, the USB ports on the front are upside down although fully functional (not sure if this has been fixed yet on newer models). Not a big deal to me.

My case also had a bend on the front eSata clip and small bend on the back of the case but they were both easy repairs, not enough to take an egg away.

Also, this isn't really a "con" but this is a VERY large and heavy case. If space or weight is going to be an issue, you may want to consider a different case.

5 out of 5 eggsQuiet

Pros: very quiet, they chose large fans, enought cooling for my two gtx 480 in SLI, 3 HDD, i7 970, and Asus Rampage III

Cons: before installing the mobo in case, check if the opening of case panel for cpu match with your mobo, mine its like 3/4 inch lower so i have to mount cpu before placing the mobo in case

Other Thoughts: Great case for great price

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing!

Pros: Cool, quiet, spacious, and beautiful! Very easy to swap my hardware from an old Antec 900 to this case. I love the tool less features. The gpu fan shroud works very well. I have 120mm fan installed on it and my dual gts 250s are cooler in this case than in my 900 with all the fans installed! Just ran the Crysis benchmark and still can't believe the temps.

Cons: Heavy and huge. But it's a full tower so that's to be expected.

Other Thoughts: I was expecting to run into some cooling issues with this case but that wasn't an issue at all. I even had the gpu fan installed on my 900 case and this still runs cooler. The red front fan is really nice and not too bright. The hdd activity led and power led aren't too bright either. I haven't installed my red cold cathodes yet but I'm sure they are going to look great in this with the full window. I'm running an AMD 955 x4 @ 3.8 on a Corsair H50, 4 gigs of ddr2 800 mhz OCZ SLI ram, a 500 gig caviar black from WD, dual gts 250 512mb cards, an Asus M4N82 deluxe 980a motherboard, all powered by a thermaltake 850 watt black widow psu.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very nice style and incredibly sturdy feel. Love the venting everywhere and ease of access with the hdd and expansion bay slots. Almost entirely tool-less install!! More than enough room for my setup. Almost want to buy a giant video card so I don't feel like I'm wasting the space. Looking forward to installing water cooling some day also, but more for fun. My whole system runs so much cooler now. I could go on, but the case really speaks for itself at the price.

Cons: I was getting an occasional hum from a vibration coming from I believe my HDDs all 5 of them. Checked them all out and went away so no worries. Would have liked to see more expansion slots on the back, but I suppose that's the perk for buying the HAF-X instead.

Other Thoughts: Overall a great great case for anyone looking for a relatively inexpensive full tower. It really feels like it will last a while. Did find it odd that the USB plugs etc on the front are upside down, but who really cares about that.

3 out of 5 eggsA bit overpriced, some details overlooked

Pros: You have plenty of room for even the longest video cards and the biggest heat sinks. The tool-less installation of drives is great. Airflow is good and cable management makes for a tidy looking setup when it's all put together.

Cons: The biggest con is that the hole which should accommodate the back of the heat sink isn't large enough for my configuration. As a result, the motherboard does not feel like it does not fit as well as it does in the Antec case that this one replaced. If the square hold were about 1.5" larger in each direction it would be better. The fans are not overly loud, on par with the previous Antec, but definitely not silent. This problem is compounded by the fact that the case fan sizes are non-standard so replacing them with quieter replacement is more difficult. There were some small cracks starting to form around several of the small screws that are used to hold the window to the case door. The 4 USB connectors on the case require two USB connections to the motherboard. I had to disconnect two of them to connect my card reader drive.

Other Thoughts: This is not a terrible case, but I probably wouldn't buy it again. Each of the little cons I pointed out wouldn't be bad on its own, but combined together they really do lower my opinion of the case.
