Nice case for the people who don't want a massive case like the 932. wouldn't swap my 932 for it but looks nice for a smaller case.

Hi,

I am planning to buy this case and i want to put a 230mm fan in the side panel but i am concerned with the possible turbulence noise caused by the moving air from the side fan when it hits tall cpu cooler´s (heatsinks + fan), What you think?

Just one more question, i saw in your review that this case have excellent cooling characteristics, do you think that removing the top fan and possibly cover the top holes/mesh ( for silent purposes) the case will loses dramaticly it´s cooling power? I ask this because i am thinking to take the top fan an put it in the side panel because i think this is the best place due the high heat from the new top GPU´s and because of the noise (1 fan more silent then 2 right? )

Best regards

aviation terms used incorrectly make me cry...

anyway, were talking about big and slow fans here, theres not much of an issue regarding noise either way. its fine.

as for your second question, removing the top fan shouldnt be a problem.

Thanks for the info.

To the reviewer: did you find any resonance in this case coming ie from the HD´s.?

I bean reading all reviews from this case (more then 10) and today i saw this review: http://www.rbmods.com/content/9952/more-of-closer-look-and-installation.aspx and it´s the
first time someone talks about resonance issues in this case?!?

Thanks

I have 4 hdd's and there is a sound anything but the resonance coming from hdd's. It really bothering me, i am searching for a solution. Haf 932 got 5 hdd drawers, they have rubber pads to silence hdd's but i think the real problem is the drawers are loose in their bays causing resonance noise.

you sure the hard drives are not just old? when was the last time they had a fitness and health test? there is one in the program called speedfan. it checks your S.M.A.R.T values and determines it all from that. they shouldnt make that much noise unless something is wrong, or you did something wrong, but ill assume the former for now.

that got me wondering...what percentage is okay for performance/fitness in Speedfan?

i dont think there is a specific range or number. you just need to look at each attribute and make sure it is within its threshold or at least not too far away from it.

I've been using the HAF 922 for about two months now and haven't had any noise issues at all (I'm using two SATA drives and an old IDE drive). The only noise comes from the drives themselves when they're being used as scratch disks.

I realized it you are talking about 9"2"2 mine is big brother 932. Actually they seem all same in the photos.
My computer is about one year old.

I have 2x 500gb seagate raid0, 1x 1500gb seagate and 1x 250gb samsung
Samsung is sure making a lot of noise but i tested all without samsung.

Last night i used some brute force. I remove all the drawers and pushed the sides to each other. Most of the noise gone but the resonance is still shaking the flooring. Before the operation sometimes resonance starting to shake front plastic panel and doing more noise

I am thinking to turn 3.5 inch bays to hdd holders.

I don't want to leave behind the original drawers, i will say it in the cooler master forum.
I couldn't find any better solution yet.
I realized another thing. Inside the case the 5.5 to 3.5 fdd converter doesn't fit with the hdd's , screw holes don't match.
The case itself is too heavy and extra parts makes it extra heavy and expensive for a dormitory-student. It is the last thing to do to buy a converter for hdd's.
I don't know that i am only one living with such a problem.
