PRODUCT PICTORIAL AND WALKTHROUGH



Behind the tray is more metal mesh. This time there is a 230x30mm exhaust fan lurking behind the mesh. Turning at 700 RPM, this fan is rated at a quiet 19dBA and, as you can see, Cooler Master has given us some configuration options here, allowing the user to place a couple of 120mm fans, or a double radiator up here in lieu of the bigger fan provided.



Moving around to the side, the HAF really struts its stuff with an acrylic window that mimics the old pale green, wire reinforced plate glass found in many industrial sites in the previous century. A faint, rather distressed “HAF” appears graffiti-like near the front of the panel with functional louvers just below. As you can see, another mesh panel holds another 230mm fan with the same specs as the top fan. Here again, Cooler Master offers configuration options with placements for four 120mm fans, though I'm personally at a loss why someone would do this. At any rate, I'm really liking what I'm seeing so far, and I hope that the interior is as appealing as the exterior.


 

 

 


Around back, we have a fairly conventional layout with a couple of twists. First of all, there's a 140mm, 1200 RPM exhaust fan behind the punched grillework and a 120mm fan will fit here but, again, I'm not sure who would want to do this. As you can see, the PSU installs at the bottom of the case, but…



…there is a block-off plate with two grommeted holes to accommodate tubing for a liquid cooling system. One could also place the PSU in this location, or install two power supplies, but the top fan will have to be sacrificed. Configuration options abound in this HAF 932 chassis, always a good thing.



Even the bottom has options! With the PSU in the bottom position, one can elect to orient the fan to pull air in from under the case, and there are cushioned feet to allow plenty of airflow in this area, even on short nap carpet. The feet can also be exchanged for the included casters to help move this big chassis around. There are also a couple of 120mm fan placements here, should the user wish to add even more airflow. Now, let's move to the interior of the HAF 932.
