Yes, it should of come with your case.

I am having a hard time fully grasping the question, but ill guess that the HAF 932 advanced uses an internal connector for the cable and your motherboard does not have an internal header.

So you want an adapter to go from the header cable on the case and route out the back and into one of those ports? I doubt there is one, sorry.

Divert the USB 3 cables from the HAF 932 out of the case through the rubber grommet holes at the back of the case. Then plug these cables into the USB 3 ports in the rear.

Looking at the 932 on coolermaters website it looks like they've revised thier panel so that it now connects to an internal header. I'm off to order one. LOL

I have the old version of the HAF 932. And the X-58 Classified EVGA board. I had to install a USB 3.0 host card just to get USB ports at the rear.

I will look at the new HAF 932 (I wish they would use a new designation in order to avaoid confusion with the old version).

The HAF comes with a cable designed to pass thru to the rear USB3 port but its usually not long enough to do so. If your motherbd has a USB3 header you can use the UC-01

For those interested, Coolermaster wants $15.99 for the Front panel USB3 (2 port) adapter. Its just a 3.5" adapter. Its another $5 for the 5.25" matching mesh plate. I figure for $20 its not worth it since you can get a multicard reader with usb3 for about the same price.

or you can buy it as a package for $20 but the plate isn't the same.

The problem with multi card readers is that they need USB pin headers on the motherboard. My old style HAF 932 used up the motherboard USB 2.0 pin headers for the front panel USB. So I had to buy some special USB cables, plug them into the card reader cables (2) and then route them to the back of the case and plug them into 2 USB 2.0 ports. Rather expensive solution.

This is what I used: http://www.performance-pcs.com/catalog/index.php?main_p...

Hey I am running the same i7 cpu as you with the same cpu cooler (single fan). Can I ask what CPU temps you are recording?

I just switched out from stock cpu cooler (44c @ idle) to the above mentioned fan (cores running @ 40-44c @ idle). I used artic silver 5 using the dot method for thermal paste application.

I thought I was suppose to see cooler performance.

There must be something wrong with my cpu cooler than. I just tested it again and am at 40C idle and 64-68C @100% load.

My abmient temp is 26C (79F). I think I should be in the low 30's at idle.

Thanks for your reply.
