Inside HAF 922
Hardware Secrets Golden AwardThe side panels are fastened to the chassis using thumbscrews, which is great. Even though you can remove the right panel, the motherboard tray is permanently attached to the chassis. The panels are painted only on the external side, as you can see in Figure 8. It would be nice if all the internal parts were also painted black.

You can install either one 200-mm fan or two 120 mm fans on the left panel. The full version of this case comes already with a 230 mm fan installed on this panel.

You can install a 140- or 120 mm fan on the bottom part of the case, as shown in Figure 10.

Instead of using a screwless mechanism for fastening daughterboards to the case, HAF 922 uses thumbscrews. This is, in our opinion, an improvement over HAF 932, which uses a plastic mechanism. In our experience such mechanisms tend to easily break.

In Figure 11, you can see the unusual slot located above the seven traditional slots. This slot allows you to install an I/O bracket containing connectors or a blower that pulls hot air from inside the case and blows it to outside the case. You can install here any blower that was originally created to be installed in any available expansion slot (click here to see an example). This can be a nice feature especially if you have video cards that heat a lot.
