Cooler Master HAF 922 ATX Case
Instalation & Testing
Installation & Testing
Being an enthusiast gaming case we decided to test this with some full size enthusiast hardware. We chose to use an oversize power supply and a pair of double slot cards to help show that this case's size doesn't stop you fitting a high end system.
Test set up
Intel Core2Duo Q6600
Intel stock HSF & Nexus HOC-9000
Asus Rampage Extreme
4gb Corsair XMS3 PC3-12800 Ram @ 9-9-9-24 1.9v
2x HIS 4870 1gb IceQ 4+
Western Digital VelociRaptor 300gb
Windows 7 Release Candidate
Not only is the case big enough to swallow all the test kit, but its tidy too thanks to the amount of cable options. Even the back of the motherboard tray is fairly tidy with 5minutes work and some cable ties. The case feet do not give much clearance beneath the case so if you decide to mount your power supply facing down as we have then limited airflow may become an issue.
Idle temperatures were taken after thirty minutes of booting up, and load temperatures after thirty minutes of torture tests using Prime95 to max out the 4 cores. Ambient temperature during testing was 22c controlled by an air conditioner. The 922 was tested against a Lian Li PC7 for comparison, we also tested with a stock Intel heat sink and a Nexus HOC-9000 to simulate low/high end HSF differences. The CPU was put through 2 tests stock and overclocked. Stock was with the bios all on auto no changes made at all. Overclocked the vcore was raised to 1.5v, the FSB to 400 and the multiplier set to 9, speedstep was disabled, all other settings were left on auto.
• HW-Monitor - record and monitor all temperatures
Testing done, lets move on to the final conclusion..
