Opening the side panel reveals the spacious interior of the HAF 922 case. The motherboard tray is not removable but has two special features of note. There is a CPU mounting hole which means that you can remove or install a CPU mounting bracket without removing the motherboard from the tray. A paper label covers the mounting holes to show the user where the standoffs should go. Finally, there are plenty of holes for proper wire management to the rear of the case.

There are five 5.25" drive bays and five 3.5" drive bays for the optical drives and HDDs. One of the 5.25" drive bays can be converted into a 3.5" drive bay with the use of drive rails included in the packaging. The bottom drive bay cover is configured for FDD installation.

The HDD cage has room for five 3.5" drives. Each drive bay has a pull-out lever. Once you pull the bay out of the HDD rack, insert the HDD into the bay, close the front and slide it back into place. Easy to use with no screws necessary to install them into place. The rear of the case has 7 PCI slots for installation of add-in cards. Each expansion card is held into place by a thumbscrew. There is also a vertical PCI slot for another external bracket, or optionally Cooler Master's Storm Guard accessory when it is available. There is a 120mm fan on the rear.
