Nice review Tom, like the comparisons you make to other cases guess it will help people compare and figure out which is best for them.

The 932 had 15mm spacings and the 922 is meant to be water compatable, a 5mm change in the roof could have made such a big difference. Just seems like a silly oversight.

Great case

I recently got one of these and I'm really happy with it.

I didn't want to spend this sort of money on a case, but none of the cheaper ones are long enough to take my GTX 285 without significant interference to the drive bays.

I initially bought the Coolermaster Storm Scout which was a bit cheaper and is sold as a "gaming" case, after seeing various reviews, including a video one, which rated it highly.

It's a great case and I like the styling. However, while it took my graphics card without interference, I literally had to insert it at an angle and then turn it straight. There was then only about a millimeter between the end of the card and the drive bays. Any longer and the next card I buy may not fit at all.

All they had to do was make it longer by an inch to solve this problem. Not good enough for a higher-end gaming case, in my opinion. Hence, I bought the HAF 922 specifically to solve this problem, which it does admirably and is of equally high quality.
