I know in a lot of my case reviews, I relate back to my Antec 900 quite a bit. This is because of a few reasons. First off, the Antec 900 offers great airflow at a reasonable price. Second being, because I spent about a year or so with the case and personally modded it to fit every last need I desired. Third, the case had good appeal aesthetically out of the box. While Antec saw their shortcomings, they made a total of four revisions to get the case in the same basic shape I had made my second revision to do. It's just that mine took a lot of planning as it was my first real case mad aside from just removing a set of drive bays to improve airflow.
With that in mind, as I say the Antec 900 did have its issues. The case with all those fans on high speed was almost intolerable to sit on a desktop. The wire management in the second version was non-existent, at least until I added my own with my Dremel tool. And lastly was the lack of airflow supplied under the PSU. The case was designed for a bottom mounted PSU, but offered no way to ventilate the PSU and have the wires at the rear of the case for a cleaner look. Again, at least until I added my own ventilation to better manage the wiring nest that usually accompanies 900 builds.
I'm sure at this point in time you have seen images or caught wind of just how good the HAF 933 from CoolerMaster is. Most times when I see people asking for a roomy case with good to great airflow, the HAF name is soon to follow as a great bang for the buck full tower chassis. While this case is in fact roomy and allows for endless mod possibilities, from what I gather it's a love hate relationship with the overall looks of the HAF 933. I personally don't mind the overall design but it has been referenced to a gas can in a few threads I read. Regardless of looks, the HAF covers all of my basic issues I faced with my previous cases.
Maybe the looks of the 933 aren't exactly what you desire. Maybe the 933 is a little large to fit your space requirements. Never fear, CoolerMaster has brought other solutions based on the HAF 933 case that is already available to the market. This Time CoolerMaster brings a slightly smaller version of the HAF 933 and is soon to release the officially named HAF 922, or "mini HAF" as it has also been referred to in articles up to this point. Enough of this talking about the HAF933 and HAF 922 comparisons, time to showcase the HAF 922 and see what this "mini HAF" has to offer.
