I would like to say at this point it has been a real pleasure working inside the HAF 922. There are no sharp edges to worry about, there is an abundance of included user friendly features, and the HAF 922 does provide very adequate airflow as CoolerMaster ships it and there is no real need for extra fans in my opinion. The HAF 922 also has a love it or hate it look, as does the 933; but I personally find this 922 to be a tad less industrial looking, yet still offering most of the benefits of the HAF 922's bigger brother.
The fans in the 922 are rated to be less that 19 dBA under full operation. I can attest to this, as the HAF 922 is a whole different league of the noise my Antec 900 brought. The equipment for this build was my secondary rig that my girl uses daily. I had done some basic testing inside the old Sigma case I used to house these parts in, and the temperatures have dropped three degrees from the sigma, both in CPU and GPU temperatures. The Sigma case was heavily fanned and modded for better air flow. Not a huge surprise that the temperatures dropped, though; placing my hand inside the case, it was easy to see the HAF 922 offers much better cooling potential.
I really only have two complaints about the HAF 922, and these are just personal feelings towards the overall feel of the HAF. I would have liked to see an all black interior versus the exposed metal, even if simply painted. The second is I would have liked the top fan to include red LED's as well, as it would flood the area above the case and the guts in a nice red glow. Since the HAF 922 doesn't have a window per se, the venting allows for a view of the glow I am missing.
With a projected price of $129.99 at retail shops near you, I feel CoolerMaster definitely offers quite the bang for the buck, with a ton of standard features, as well as a couple new ones. Being my complaints are more of personal desire to see something versus the actual quality and build design that the HAF 922 offers, I can't fault the case in one aspect. For what the CoolerMaster HAF 922 has to offer in a compact package, I don't think they could do very much more to improve on the design or the layout.
