Cooler Master HAF 932 Case Review

Inside HAF 932
Hardware Secrets Golden Award

The 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 left panel comes with a 230 mm fan attached. As mentioned, this fan rotates at 700 rpm and its blades measure only 190 mm. If you need more airflow you can replace this fan with up to four 120 mm fans. The side panel is meshed on the area where the big fan is located, with a small transparent window imitating wired glass.

In Figure 11 you have an overall look from the interior of this case.

This case uses a plastic screwless mechanism for you to fasten daughterboards to the case, as you can see in Figure 12. If you pay attention you will see that the slot covers are meshed, allowing hot air to go out through them. This is a really nice touch. As mentioned before the power supply goes on the bottom part of the case. Speaking of the bottom part, you can add a 120 mm fan there (see Figure 11). In Figure 12 you can also see the rear 140 mm fan.

In Figure 13 you have a close-up on the top 230 mm fan. If you like, you can remove this fan and install two regular 120 mm fans or a water-cooler radiator based on two or three 120 mm fans. As mentioned, you can also install a second power supply if you remove this fan, but you will still have space available to install a 120 mm fan on the top panel.
