Cooler Master HAF 932 Advanced - High Air Flow Full Tower Computer Case with USB 3.0 and All-Black Interior
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

Pros: I bought the case because 1) it was featured and on sale and 2) because I wanted the room for all my HD's. I enjoyed the case, though very bulky and heavy.

Cons: I built my machine back in 11/21/2013, and after almost 2 years, the front panel seems to have fried, and possibly ruined my motherboard.

I've had no issues until one night, I walked away from my computer, came back and everything looked off, yet my smart power strip kept everything "on". After manually turning off my power supply switch, and turning the computer back on; the moment I hit the power on switch on the panel, I heard a buzzing noise around that area and my computer ceased to turn on. Thinking it was power supply related, I trouble shooted with another PSU, and still not working. I then opened the panel to inspect but didn't find anything. The case gave off this 'burnt' smell but couldn't find the source. Needless to say, I have a beautiful computer that can't start anymore, and if the mobo is fried, which I suspect, I'm going to be extremely displeased knowing that a simple front panel connection created this.

Quality check your panel!!!!


ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectX 11 GTX780-3GD5 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: When it worked, this beast was able to play anything. Amazing graphics on BF4

Cons: After 2 and a half weeks, I began receiving "Display driver stopped responding and recovered"
This was when it was 331.65 nVidia drivers.
I reverted back to various drivers with same result. Now, my system no longer gives me the error message rather a hard crash/restart.

Other Thoughts: I've tried to troubleshoot to try and eliminate other potential issues besides the card. All efforts seem to be pointing to a dead card. I submitted an ASUS Support ticket and was only given a generic message to:
"Unfortunately to say it can't be directly judged which parts cause your issue.
If the issue appears after you have installed some software or hardware, please uninstall or remove them and check if it is helpful.
Please have a check if the new video card will work normally."

ASUS GeForce GTX 780 DirectX 11 GTX780-3GD5 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: As a PC builder that tends to stay within a certain budget or a few months behind high-end, newly released, I finally bit the bullet and decided to buy this along with my newly built PC.

Upgraded from a GTX 645, this new card is simply amazing in how beautiful the graphics look with all settings set to ultra, high, etc.

Cons: Within 2 1/2 weeks, the card has failed. Constantly getting "Display driver stopped working and recovered" messages. Was enjoying the card nicely until this point. RMA with newegg has been issued and I really hope I can get a replacement or at least some reasoning behind the problem.

Other Thoughts: I found it interesting how Newegg jacked up the price on this card, I'm sure in preparation of black friday to make it seem like it dropped. Bought it for $509 on Halloween
