I have the HAF X, so I agree that the 932 and the X are top notch. Add in the 200m fan on top too if they didn't, since CM only gives you one stock.
They only included one fan with the HAF 932 now?!

Mine came with
- 230mm red LED fan at the front
- 230mm black fan on the top
- 230mm black fan on the side
- 140mm fan at the rear

The 230mm fans use a 200mm bolt pattern, so if they ever fail, it can work with standard 200mm fans (like the 200mm Cooler Master MegaFlows).

I have the same amount of fans only all of mine are blue led. And just to update the thread, I have the PC back and I did have them put a Cool Master N520 on the cpu.

Right now I have the cpu over clocked to 4GHZ and it never moves off 35*C even running prime 95. So the new case and cpu fan did the trick.

Ah the blue LED version of the HAF 932.

35*C with running Prime95?! What's your room/ambient temperature?

What temperature monitoring program are you using? Some are known to give values that are off by ~10*C.

Make sure you are looking at the CPU temperature and not the Core temperatures.

No, no. My fault. Mixed up the X with the 932 and thought it had 2 top fans. But yes, the X supports the 2 top 200mm or 230mm fans, can't remember the size, and they only give you one. I ended up swapping out all the fans for higher CFM Blue LED fans, since my gear is all blue LED (Razer Lycosa and lachesis). So I got around $60 or more of fans...lol. Too darn expensive.



Temperature watching stuff, you can't go wrong with RivaTuner based apps and Hwinfo64. I can watch anything I want in game to my hearts desire.

I was using Speedfan but now I have tried AMD Overdrive and CPUID and both of them report the temp @ 43*C under full load. Room temp is 71*.

I tried to over clock it more but it became very unstable @ 4.2GHZ So I backed it back down to 4GHZ. I know some people have reported getting 4.5GHZ out of my cpu but mine is stable to 4.1ghz.
