Odd, that's exactly the config I tried but for a 230mm in the side. It may have to do with fan placement in the HAF 922's side panel, but I only saw about a 2c difference, so I pulled it back out just for the extra bit of quiet.

Of course, could also be CM's large fans aren't all that great..don't know for sure.
