Cooler Master HAF 922 Case Review

Introduction (Cont’d)
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Cooler Master HAF 922 has a 200-mm fan on its top rotating at 700 rpm (19 dBA). This fan can be replaced with two 120 mm fans if you want. Another interesting thing is that even though it is officially smaller than the 230 mm fan used on HAF 932, both of them use 190 mm blades.

On the top part from front panel you can also find two USB ports (HAF 932 has four), an eSATA port and mic in and headphone jacks. The full tower version also has a FireWire port, not present on HAF 922. As mentioned, one advantage of this model over its big brother is the presence of an on/off switch for the front fan LED’s.

Finally we have the rear panel in Figure 7. The first thing that we noticed was that the rear part and the interior of HAF 922 are not painted (this also happens with HAF 932).

On this case the power supply is installed on the lower section of the case and it has one 120 mm fan (1,200 rpm, 17 dBA) and two holes for an external water cooling solution. These holes are protected by a rubber cover, so you won’t need to break anything on your case to have them available.

A unique feature found on this case is the presence of a vertical slot on the right side. This slot allows you to install an I/O bracket containing connectors or a blower to remove hot air from inside the case, as we will explain more in the next page.

Now let’s see how HAF 922 looks like inside.
