Cooler Master HAF 922 ATX Case
Comparisons & Internals
Comparisons And Internals
Being a part of the every growing Cooler Master range we felt it necessary to compare the 922 with its closest family members. The 932 its older and larger brother is where most of the designs are based. When side by side you can easily see the similarities between the two, the only major difference apart from height is an extra 5.25" bay an extra pair of USB ports and of course native 360mm radiator mounts with 15mm spacings.
The 922 is almost a CM Storm Sniper with less of the plastic 'body kit' the internals are almost identical. Many case manufacturer's just like in the car industry use parts and chassis across the range and between brands to help keep costs down. Both cases are made from steel and have the same front end with 5x 5.25" bays with the no tools drive fitting, you just push the button to lock the drives in place. They also both have 5x 3.5" hard drive bays mounted in tool less caddies sideways in front of a 200mm fan, the HAF how ever has a red LED version. The only minor differences are the HAF has an extra cut out to allow easier 4/8pin motherboard power cables to be routed and you can fit an extra 140mm or 120mm fan in front of the PSU if you are not using an over sized version.
The two cases are so similar you can even swap the side panels. After seeing this I hope Cooler Master decide to sell the Sniper panels separately as I much prefer the Sniper mesh to the HAF's stamped grill.
Lets move on to fitting the hardware and testing.
