All of the HAF 932's 5.25" bays are tool-free. The front bay covers can be removed simply by squeezing
on the two side tabs on the front grate of every bay, while a button on
the side is used to secure optical drives in place. It's a simple and elegant solution
that makes swapping components easy. 'nuff said.
There are six 5.25" bays with mounts, which is more than
nearly any user would conceivably need - with two optical drives, a large memory
card reader and a front panel bay for an X-fi or Audigy card, that still leaves
two more bays available!! I'd prefer to see this space converted to fit
more hard drives.. or for something like this.
A front panel grate is also supplied for 3.5" devices, and there is an adaptor
cage to support 3.5" devices in the 5.25" bay.
Bay covers pop out easily, the EMI shielding behind twists off in a few seconds.
Locking a 5.25" device into the HAF 932 is as easy as
pushing a button once. On the opposite side two steel spikes shoot out to impale
your BluRay or HD-DVD (haha you bought a dead technology!!) drive in
Pushing the button releases the 5.25"
Installing your hard fought for gaming gear into the
Cooler Master HAF 932 case is pleasingly straightforward. Most of the steel
edges are rounded or tapered to prevent nasty cuts and scrapes, and the layout
itself is largely tool-free. The motherboard is secured to its tray with
a standard phillips screwdriver.
Pretty cool so far, but the HAF 932 best feature
is yet to come. Can you say hot... swap.
