Cooling Options

The HAF 932 Advancedís party piece certainly has to be the plethora of fans and upgrade options available out of the box. If you arenít happy with any of the stock fans then there are several alternatives you can use. Up top you can replace the single 230mm fan with three 120mm fans, while on the side panel you can install up to four 120mm fans! On the back you have the option of using either a 140mm or 120mm fan. Unfortunately there is a frustrating flaw to some of these options.

That flaw being Cooler Master's decision to use hex screws rather than standard Phillips on both the top and side 230mm fans. While this may not be the end of the world, you really shouldnít have to buy a set of hex wrenches just to replace a couple of fans. That said, most computer enthusiasts probably already have a hex set along with several Torx screwdrivers.

The front fan is thankfully very easy to remove as it is covered by only a small front panel rather than requiring the removal of entire face of the chassis.

Other cooling options include the ability to mount up to two 120mm fan on the bottom of the chassis and a movable cooling shroud that can hold a single 120mm fan. By default the top PSU hole is covered with a plate featuring twin rubber ringed, water cooling ports.

So what does this all mean? Letís find out on the next page!
