http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:i4wybK0RHcQINM:http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/upload/product/2963/intro1.jpgThere was a time when AMD reign supreme. The instant underdog when they came to market quickly gained popularity over the Intel Juggernaught; all good things must come to an end. This end came in the form or dual core technology, AMD quickly lost the mass fallowing it once had. For those of you that hung on and continued to be big supports of AMD we have the case for you! Cooler Master took one of their top selling cases and proverbially pimped it out so to speak for anyone who has a love for all things AMD with a little ATI sprinkled on top.  I for one was always an AMD fan boy but changes in technology made me change to Intel, we did meet with AMD at CES and they told us good things where coming and they sent us out the AMD Phenom II 965 BE for building a testing rig. So we promptly got in contact with the guys at Cooler Master to get a fully AMD themed rig together. Due to NDA agreements I cannot tell you exactly what AMD has in store but let me tell you it should make you AMD boy happy you stayed a fan through thick and thin. Let’s Check out the Cooler Master HAF 932 AMD Edition:

Conclusion:

So for those of you interested in temps I did do some testing on ambient temperature and I was surprised. The ambient Temp inside the case was 20.6 degrees C and the ambient room Temperature was 21.8 Degrees C. Needless to say the cooling ability of the HAF hasn’t been tainted very much by the addition of a window over the side panel fan it once had. CPU temp was 24C HDD where 22C and the motherboard temp was 26C. The Cooler Master HAF932 AMD Edition has some serious cooling and great flow through design. I love the look of it and to be honest most of the people that see it don’t. I would make one suggestion if Cooler Master ever does another AMD edition to use a darker red to signify ATI other then that I love it. The Dragon on the side panel looks great I would love to see this cases modded a little more with red lights because it is so huge the bright LEDs from the fans get washed out a bit.

Would I recommend this case? Yes, if you need a full tower case with intense cooling and great features this is a fantastic case. It also catches peoples eye at lan parties so if you want to show your full AMD support at your next gaming event grab yourself a Cooler Master Haf 932 AMD edition.

Pros:

  • Great Cooling
  • Eye Catching
  • Modular PSU Positioning
  • Attention to Detail
  • CPU Cooling Bracket Access 
Cons:
  • Red Front Color (Either you love it or hate it)
  • Price Might be Steep for Some

 Even with a few cons I absolutely love this case that is why it receives this award:
