Introduction
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Cooler Master HAF 922 is a mid-tower version of HAF 932, which we have already reviewed. Some changes had to be made in order to reduce the size of the case, and the main ones were the reduction of the size of the fans (the two 230 mm fans were reduced to 200-mm models and the 140 mm fan was reduced to 120 mm model), the reduction of the number of 5.25” from six to five, the reduction of the number of USB ports from four to two and the absence of a set of wheels. The new model, on the other hand, brings features not present on HAF 932.

Looking at the case for the first time we were impressed by its impeccable external paint job and sturdy aspect.

In Figure 3, you can see the front panel from this case and, as you can see, it doesn’t have a front door. This case has five external 5.25” bays, all of them using meshed covers (which are great to improve the internal airflow) with dust filters (which prevent dust from entering the PC). On the lower section from the front panel Cooler Master added a big 200-mm fan rotating at 700 rpm (19 dBA) that glows red when it is turned on. A great feature from HAF 922 not found on HAF 932 is the presence of an on/off switch for the front fan LED’s. Like the bay covers, this fan has a dust filter in front of it.

Although officially this case uses a smaller fan, the actual size of the fan blades is exactly the same as the 230 mm model used on HAF 932: 190 mm!

All fans from this case use a 3-pin motherboard connector, so they can installed directly on your motherboard allowing you to monitor their speed.
