The exterior of the HAF 922 looks nearly identical to its big brother, the HAF 932. The front of the case offers five exposed 5.25" drive bays, five hidden 3.5" drive bays, one exposed 3.5" drive bays as well as a convenient front panel. The back of the case is where somewhat of a difference in design comes into play. Instead of having the option to install a power supply at the top or the bottom, with the 932, it requires it to be installed at the bottom of the case. This is understandable since the move to a mid tower form factor limits the amount of space. With the power supply located at the bottom, the top of the case offers two water tube holes, a 120mm fan, and an I/O panel. The sides of the 922 still keep that rugged look as the 932, but come short of the side fan.
Located on top of the Cooler Master HAF 922 is a fan LED switch, power switch and reset switch. At the bottom right hand corner are the HDD and Power LED's. Across the power and reset switches is a massive massive 230mm fan. The bottom of the case includes four rubber grommets that help prevent scratches as well as help reduce vibration.
The front panel of the Cooler Master HAF 922 includes a variety of ports including two USB 2.0 ports, a microphone in and headphone out jack, as well as eSATA connectivity.
