In order to properly test the Cooler Master HAF 922 I will gather temperatures for the processor, chipset, hard drive and the video card during their idle phase and load phase. To record idle temperatures I will leave the computer running for fifteen minutes with little to no stress whatsoever. Next I will simulate a load using Prime 95 with small FFTs (Fast Fourier Transform) and HDTune simultaneously for thirty minutes. Next, I will use ATITool's built in stability tester to load the graphics card. I will be using the latest version of HWMonitor to help monitor temperatures. Ambient temperatures during testing were 22 degrees Celsius.

Looks like the HAF series case has done it again. In all areas except the chipset temperatures, the Cooler Master HAF 922 was able to cool down the CPU, GPU and HDD. While it did not succeed in the chipset testing, it stayed well below the safe zone.
