Well as most know I retired the Snow Storm Case due to me not liking not having drive bays. I'm still an optical drive person lol. So I moved to a 932 Advanced as it gave me the thick 360 rad support in the roof I wanted. I havent really posted any pics yet and now i'm getting down to some upgrading of it over the next few weeks. First upgrade comes today via Newegg with a beautiful AX850 psu by Corsair and a NZTX Sentry Mesh fan controller. The sniper case had a built in controller that I sorely missed. Currently my Sickle Flows are running at 12v and not overly loud but they hum a tad. Over the next few weeks (round about income tax time) I plan on putting my GTX570HD under water with the EC-FC579GTX SE now while my current pump/rez combo would probably handle the extra block i want to add another rad as well. So I purchased a D5 pump last night for 60$ shipped Still looking at rez's as I'm not 100% certain how it'll all go. I am very attached to the Danger Den Monsoon D5 Premium but it has a premium price as well. Anywho a few pics to wet the whistle til i get more parts. Oh and almost forgot I ordered some cable sleeving to sleeve the front panel connectors as well as the fans. It should be here by this weekend. Not going to fuss about the psu wires as they are already all black.

this is how she currently looks minus the green on the optical drive. I have already returned it to its black stage.







Goodies from Newegg









thats all for now time to get it installed and start cable management

Cool beans will be nice when done. And the AX just looks so much better than the TX the black and gold over the blue and black just does it.

true but my build is blue and black plus thats the HX in there before LOL but I like the all black cables of the AX

ok another tiny mod lol as y'all may know the one drawback to the 932 is no dust filters. So I took the mesh from the Sniper case's side panel and well I'll let the pics tell ya easy breezy mod so far only done the front intake. Still have the side panel to do.

pic of front bezel mesh removed (just 4 lil screws alot better than the bend over tabs like on Sniper



mesh of larger than meeded size



mesh screwed onto the frame with the stock mesh



all trimmed down and done



think it'll do the job

Always loved the HAF cases esp the 932. Are you planning on getting the optional windowed side panel?

well mate I looked into it and while its decent Its still not a full window still has that damn 230mm fan for gpu's and since I'm going to put it under water kinda pointless. I may look into modding it myself.

ok another package arrived today its small but contains big improvements





no feet comments please

50ft of black paracord and heatshrink
