No - mine was NOT premounted - just a sperate piece. So are these suppose to be mounted? Either way, I would need the proper scews sent to me with mounting instructions as soon as possible.

PM me your shipping address so we can have those sent to you. And no they aren't supposed to be seperated. They are supposed to be pre-mounted.

anyone know the type of steel that is used for the HAF 932?

i know it is SECC, but deals in the process, not the starting material.

basically, what kind of steel is the "S" in SECC?

i plan on doing a chrome plating job on it and it would be a lot of help.

thanks,

SECC=Steel Electrycally Chromate Coated

where did you see that? it is just that you are the only person i have seen so far to say that.

from what i have seen is that it is - Steel, Electrogalvanized, Cold-rolled, Coil.

chromate coated would seem to imply a chrome coating. which i dont think is the case. galvanizing (zinc) would seem more in the norm of sheet metal.

however, it still doesnt answer my question of what kind (grade) of steel is used in S.E.C.C.

I have a question: Are there any bay reservoir that have a fill port that line up with the fill port on top of this case? I've been looking all day for one but I can't find one (you would think CM has an official reservoir to fit with this case).

If that doesn't work, what's the best way to mod a fill tube that goes from the fill port at the top of the case to an in bay reservoir that does not cause leaks and can still use the case's fill port cap.

Thanks for any info!!!

Aquagate Max:

Hello,

I'm sorry to make this my first post to the boards but...

I recently purchased and received a HAF 932 case and an Aquagate Max. The fill port does NOT line up with the Aquagate Max, nor does it seem plausible you could fill the reservoir like the picture shows on the box. Even if you put the radiator in backwards so you could fit the reservoir in the top two bays, you still have a significant gap from the fill hole (through the plastic lining, then the case metal, plus some dead air between the top of the case and the reservoir) to try and overcome. In order to use the fill hole you'd have to open up the side panel, unmount the reservoir, push it back, and then figure out how to remove the screw cap through the hole (possibly a magnet) and then hope you could pour in your solution through the dead space without spilling it all over the top of the reservoir.

I actually came to these forums seeking a solution to make this work. I was hoping to possibly find an accessory offered. Something like a part that would screw into the reservoir (where the cap would normally screw in) with a hose hookup, much like the hookups on the back of the reservoir (or the radiator). Then you could hook a hose up to the reservoir, run it up through the dead space and there is enough space between the plastic lining and case metal on the HAF 932 to mount an end cap with threading for the original reservoir cap. This would keep the system closed to air and dust, but allow you to easily fill it without resorting to extra long funnels and/or making a horrible mess. This could even fix it not lining up correctly if you mounted it down one space to give room for the hose to bend slightly.

However, much of this could be fixed if it all lined up correctly to begin with. Then you could easily use an extra long funnel to fill it and a magnet to remove and replace the cap.

If there are any solutions to this problem, I would love to hear them. I am still more than happy with the case, but one of the selling points over the Cosmos S with the Aquagate Max was the fill spot. I was hoping to avoid my CM Stacker/Original Aquagate fiasco, where I would have to unmount the reservoir if I wanted to fill it (thus I had to elongate all the tubing and cram it into the case when I pushed the reservoir back in). The Aquagate Max looks awsome though. I can't wait to get it all up and running when I finish building my new PC.

Thank you for your time!
