I do love it though.
Ahh, well the rest of it should be the same as the version with the black insides, I'm loving it too, the case has nice cable management options, and it is huge, it could almost hold 2 PC'*, lol
The airflow is great too, my CPU (I5-2500k) is overclocked to 4.3GHz, and the PC never gets over 65C under full load, at idle all cores are around 30C right now, of course the processor is throttled back to 1.6GHz since I am just browsing the web.

I considered going with the HAF-X in case I ever wanted to put an XL-ATX mobo setup in it, I can still get an E-ATX in the case if need be, so I opted to save money and not get the HAF-X, with the 932 you can still get the side panel for the HAF-X if desired, it will fit our 932'* and is only about 30.00
I bet with some modding a XL-ATX would fit the 932, the dimensions for both cases are so close.

I'll stop now, I could talk about computers, or almost any electronics all day! :o

I'm very certain that either my AS5 went to crap on me. My i7-920 at 3.8GHz is 50c at idle.

Based on your statement, it would appear there is possibly something else wrong?

50C is not too bad at idle for that chip, mine only gets so cool because I have an AC vent under the case.
The ASV is good paste, it rarely dries up like conventional thermal paste, of course you have to be careful when applying it since the silver in it gives it a little conductivity.
I think the avg temps with a decent load are supposed to be around 67.9C, at least that is what Intel'* specs say, I'd not worry about 50C idle temps, I'd only worry if operating temps get in the 80'* and up under a full load, the chip won't actually shutoff itself till around 95-100C, 100C if you have the D0 stepping chip, of course you do not want it that hot..

LOL @ Mike being a grammar **** this morning!

Ain't nothing wrong with that, the 920 was one heck of a solid chip

Ahh, you had the C0 stepping then, it still is a good chip, it cannot overclock as well as the D0, and may be a tiny bit warmer overall, but still temps are not too bad for a 130W 45 nm Co stepping I7 920.

My C0 did just as well as a D0. It really was hit or miss
