Cooler Master HAF932 AMD-Edition Review

Cooler Master introduced the original HAF 932 "high air flow" case in 2008, but they're no stranger to the case market, having sold computer cases for many years. Most of their earlier cases were expensive, all-aluminum creations that many hackers still prize. In the past few years, they've been moving their design and manufacturing expertise to less-expensive steel cases and now offer a full range of cases with prices ranging from $50 to more than $500 for custom-painted aluminum versions. The HAF 932 AMD Edition is the first AMD-themed case they've offered.

It's not the first manufacturer-themed Cooler Master case, though: they currently have three NVIDIA-themed cases. The standard Cooler Master HAF 932 case sets a high bar for functionality and value. How will this case stack up?
