Hello,

I'm wondering if anyone can make some reccomendations on some CPU coolers that would fit in the 932.
I don't overclock by much, I'll probably take my i7 920 to 3.6 or so. I've had a self contained water cooler for a while, and if I'm thinking right it may be nearing its end. I'd like to try out air cooling for a while, especially since I'll be upgrading to this larger case.

I've been searching around for a while, and some of these coolers are MASSIVE. Just worried about them not fitting in the case.

ZALMAN CNPS12X 120mm Long Life Bearing High Performance Triple Fan CPU Cooler
$99.99

The Half 932 is a big case a full tower I believe , and this cpu fan/heatsink should have no problem fitting in it. Zalman always makes great cpu coolers.

Looks awesome, but the reviews are saying it covers RAM slots, even low profile! I'm going to have some Low-Pro Corsair memory in all 4 of my slots. Thanks for the link and info though!

That Zalman is pretty pricey, and is likely overkill if you are only looking to get up to 3.6 or so.

This is true. You can fit any heatsync your heart desires in a full tower.

The 212 EVO gets my vote:

Great performance for a third of the cost.

The a70 by corsair fits into my storm enforcer (essentially a haf 912), However it does block the ram slots on my asrock gen3 extreme3 board. This however is a narrower board.

Low profile ram fixes this problem however, I currently have g skill sniper ram, which is semi low profile and I am able to make the cpu cooler fit.

The a70 is huge is quite large.

I would give the 212 Evo a try!
I'm a 212+ user and the Evo is by all reports an improvement.
