I need a new case, larger with alot more airflow. I've been looking at the HAF 932. I know i could always get a Stacker 830 or one of the variants, but i want something a bit different.

Anyone have one of these, or have seen them in action?

They're supposed to be good for air. I think they're ugly in general, but this one is nicely done.

Very roomy ,I like it even though its fugly.

Probably like running an open case with the number of massive holes it has.

the mesh at the top of the case with the fan, does it come like that?

I've had one for a week now and love it. The three HUGE 230mm fans (top-side-front) are awesome. Plus the big 140mm in the rear is sweet. I added a 120mm fan over my dvd-rom next to the one 230mm in the top. Loading the hard drives side ways really opens up the mb area. No screws are used when it comes to mounting dvd/cd-roms or hard drives. I'm sure you won't be disappointed plus the price is right.:)

Yes. You can remove the 230mm and mount three 120mm fans or put a psu up there. The 230mm fan on the side panel can be replaced with 4 120mm. The front 230mm can be replace with a 120mm also, though I don't know why anyone would want to. Plus it comes with castors if you want to replace the four stands. It is really versatile.

any reason to switch smaller fans with bigger ones, or vice versa?
I always figured bigger = better, but bigger = more sound.....

The only reason I would replace a 230mm with 120mms' would be if one went out and I had them laying around (which I do), but then only until I got a replacement.

Actually the big 230mms' run at about 720rpm - 730rpm, are very quiet and still push a lot of air. I replaced a cm stacker 830 (my wife's now) with this one. I had 4 120mms in the side panel plus one in the top and one in the bottom. The 830 fans were more noticable (though not annoying) than the 932 fans and the 932, IMO, moves more air. I believe it is just designed with/for better air flow and definately ease of working inside it.

Doesn't having that many big holes in a case negate the need for case fans?

Not if there are Fans mounted and cover all of the holes.

I got the HAF 932 recently and absolutely love it, fulltower so it's easy to work with and the airflow is fantastic so go for it and the 230mm fans dont sound high at all.

It just wispers but since it's an open case the CPU and gfx cooler fans can be heard but thats not a prob for me. the best case I ever had simple as that :)
