After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain.  If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.

    Case Features & Inside Layout Finishing

    Here are some images to see how a full ATX motherboard looks inside the HAF 932. Also notice the PSU installed at the bottom, and all of the room around both of these items mentioned.
    Behind the door on the backside of the motherboard tray shows how cables can be routed. Using the precut holes allows for great cable management. Plus the amount of room behind the motherboard tray is deep enough to even route the larger ATX power bundle. Keeping the cables a little more managed will help out on air flow and cooling.
    Cooler Master is moving away from the Stacker style in one very different way. That way is going more towards the complete tool free install on most things in the case. In this picture you can see that the HAF 932 is now using an easy locking mechanism for holding expansion card in place. This makes faster install and removal of hardware. This system is still hampered by heavy video cards, and dual slot coolers. So this can cut down on the experience of being completely tool free. Still, Cooler Master does provide the needed holes for using screws to secure your expansion cards if it is needed.
    Here is the PSU installed on the top of the case instead of the bottom. On the HAF 932 it is recommended to install the power supply on the bottom than the top. Reason for this is you lose your 230mm fan, and even a 3 x 120mm Radiator option due to the lack of space. Still a standard PSU on the top and a 2 x 120mm Radiator might work.

    Bigger power supplys such as a 1000 Watt may not work at all in the top mounting location unless you remove all of the goodies.
    Included Stuff
    Now for the included stuff that Cooler Master gives you for the HAF 932. You get a 5.25" to 3.5" drive converter to use for floppy drives and card readers. There is also case feet that can be used instead of the wheels. Then you get a 12 volt Power Supply extender since this cable is usually the shortest. The speaker is separate from the case, but is still able to be installed in case your motherboard doesn't have one. Another look at the expansion slot mesh protector there for you to get a better look at it.  Lastly you get a ton of screws to make sure you are able to install about anything in this case.
