  1. Coolermaster HAF 922 fan connections with motherboard and PSU

    Hello Techspot,

    I am going to move my current components into another case (Coolermaster HAF 922), which I am getting soon. I am also getting the Corsair TX850 watt v2 PSU.
    I will be using my current components, which can be found on my profile + a 9800GT ( I will be later getting the AMD HD 6950).

    My question is, how will I connect the case fans? Do I need to buy extra cable converters/reductions?
    I have asked a similar question, but that was using a GA-990FXA-UD5 motherboard. The motherboard I use now is MSI 785GM-E51.

    Thanks in advance.

    Your molex connectors should work.

    Hi guys,

    I am thinking about getting a new case with a new PSU, the Corsair TX850 v2.
    I would like to know the order of these cases in terms of quality and how good they are.

    From where I am buying they cost:

    Thermaltake Element V - 125 Euros
    Coolermaster HAF 932 - 120 Euros
    Coolermaster HAF 922 - 91 Euros

    Thanks in advance

    They're all good. Personal preference is the deciding factor here.

    I'd go with the HAF932.

    Thermaltake Element V has more case fans.

    That's all academic, the HAF932 is a better case.

    Very few cases beat the HAF models for cooling, ease of working on, the design and build quality, and the mass of configuration options they support.

    About the molex connections, don't the fans have PWR _FAN outputs? Are there some converters already in the case?

    Is the HAF 932 worth the extra 30 Euros?
