    My HAF build project !

    Well after reading many post and looking over many cases I bought a HAF 932, many of you have this case already and your reviews and thoughts talked me into getting this case. Here is my build project as we progress.


    Case arrived last week and first thing I did was striped her down so I could paint the inside.

    Here are some pic's of the results so far. Before and After, I know I need to touch up some a bit as my tape job left a few places I missed but over all I'm very pleased with it.


    Now I got to wait for the UPS and Fed Ex delivery next week so I can put her together, ordered a fan controller, new res and compression fittings. They need to arrive before I start the case swap.

    Ive thought about maybe putting a clear coat on it as its seems to scratch very easy, I already got several places I need to touch up.

    no not really adding a EK 250 Tube Res and switching from regular fittings to compression fittings for looks..... also going from 1/2ID too 3/8ID so its a bit more workable. Then just some major wire management so I can show her off now and then.

    so I'm adding some new stuff but no real mods like past cases as this one needs no cutting to make a good water system.

    I've decided I'm going to put a clear coat on it to help with chipping paint.

    +1 to the clear coat, I didn't use it for a long time because I though it wouldn't make a big difference. I was so wrong, I finally used it on a paint job, and it came out a lot better. Looks cool! I guess the 932 is overtaking the 1200 in popularity? It seems like there's a lot more of them now.

    Ok Yesterday switched out the Power and HD LED's and put in Red ones.... don't got any pics as I forgot to take some when I was testing them. Wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it would be.
