Despite this success I cant help feeling let down by the 120mm fan spacing in the roof as this is nothing short of ignorance in my book. Water cooling is a far bigger market now than it ever has been and Cooler Master has been doing so well catering for it. But now when they really could have hit the nail on the head they decide to throw in a curve ball with 20mm spacings. Its a bit late when the industry has practically agreed on a 15mm standard. Even now writing this I am trying to work out what I have missed as this is not the way to appeal to a wider market.
So if your looking for a small case to watercool then Ive got to say this isn't the case for you, which is a great shame. If how ever you want full tower airflow in a mid tower package then the HAF 922 is perfect and I cant recommend it enough.
The 922 is available for £86.99 from Novatech which is about £25 cheaper than the Storm Sniper, it performs the same and some might say is easier on the eye as well so its a pretty big saving for the same case with a more subtle body kit.
- Great Airflow

- Easy installation even with full sized components
- Cheaper than a CM Storm Sniper
- Steel Construction
- Limited PSU airflow, when mounted facing downward

- Limited water cooling options
Thanks to Cooler Master for sending the HAF 922 in for review. Discuss this review in our forums
