Thanks for following and commenting guys!

Unfortunately Cooler Master doesn't offer a window option for the 922, but this doesn't phase me. I chose to install a transparent red window based on the feedback I received from the CM Storm I modified. Just so you're aware, the Red acrylic is dark and I have not installed a window in the 932 HAF yet.

Here are the steps involved for the 922

Materials & Supplies:

3M Scotch 4010 Mounting Tape Case Mod Tape of the Gods

U-channel edge molding for PC Mod Window

Clear & Colored Computer Case Windows

Ruler, Pen, Painters or Masking Tape (I prefer 3M Scotch 233+ Green Tape) , Rotary Tool, Jigsaw with 18 TPI or higher metal cutting blade, Hand File. Not pictured is Safety Glasses, Empty Box and X-acto Knife (or Razer blade)

The HAF 922 side panel is similar to the CM Storm Scout.

Perforated portion of the stock panel will hold 1x 200mm cooling fan or 2x 120mm.

Start off by masking off the raised portion of the left side access panel with masking tape. I prefer to use 3M Scotch 233+ Green Tape. It leaves no sticky residue.

Window location with space measurements.

Use any roll of tape to make rounded corner. Round corners allow you to use the U-channel edge molding for PC Mod Window

Before using the Jigsaw to cut the window, you need to make an incision cut with a Rotary tool with Dremel Cutting Discs & Wheels
Dremel 1.5" cutting wheel attachment.

Using Jigsaw with 18 TPI (or higher) metal cutting blade to cut the window opening. Notice I'm cutting on top of a box placed upon a stool.. This method allows you to turn the panel 360 degrees. It also collects the debris.

Using hand file to level and remove any jagged edges cause by the Jigsaw.

I've measured 9-3/4" length section from a 24" x 12" acrylic sheet. The window should measure 9-3/4" x 12"

I've learned 100 times more about modding reading these threads than I knew before, amazing stuff! Keep it up

I dissected the chassis for paint. The top panel with the power switch and I/O is fastened on with plastic tabs, located beneath the top panel. Very easy to remove!

The case chassis, just before removing the rear i/o slot covers, noise dampening felt strips for PSU and case feet.
