Closer Look: HAF AMD Exterior
The Cooler Master HAF 932 AMD Edition is not for the introverted. The fascia is molded red plastic, not painted, and covers the entire front of the case and extends to cover part of the top of the case.
It's unlikely your monitor can do this color justice. It's not just red, it's RED: screaming red. Fire-engine red (before they started using that weird lemon-lime color). Deadly danger warning light red. It's so bright it almost seems internally backlit. Whew! Anyway. The front of the case has six removable bezels for 5.25" devices. Below the device bays is a large intake grille for the 230mm intake fan. Which, I might add, also has red LEDs.
The left side of the standard HAF 932 holds another of these giant fans, but the AMD Edition replaces it with a windowed side panel with a dragon imprint. At the lower front of this panel are five ventilation slots.
Moving to the rear of the case, we see space for a bottom-mounted power supply, 7 card slots, a 140mm exhaust fan, and grommeted holes for an external water cooling system.
The right side of the case is a plain black panel with some cable relief moldings and the same ventilation slots as the other side.
The top of the case showcases another 230mm fan (also lit with red LEDs), as well as a depressed area with a rubber mat, which serves as a handy place for your keys, change, and iPhone.
Join me in the next section as I take a closer look at the exterior details of this intriguing case.
