Lookin' good. I bet it is a tornado!

For a case like the HAF, which has a lot of vents, you would want positive intake. In positive intake, you have more fans sucking air in which forces it out through all of the little vents in the case. If I recall correctly, the HAF does not have any dust filters which will be a problem with that number of fans. To solve this, you can buy separate 120mm dust filters. They're only a few bucks each, but they are very helpful in keeping bunnies out of your case (keeping stuff nice and clean at the same time). You can check any major modding etailer as they'd probably have some in stock.

heey Taz2010  what u need is more intake than exhaust because u need to have positive airflow soo for your haf 932 i suggest having the 4 120s on the side intake and the front 230 to intake the rest should be exahust for perfect airflow:)
