I bought two of these to work with an Intel Z170 chipset motherboard that features 2 pin headers that support four USB 3.0 front-panel ports. Needed them because I was reusing an HAF 932 case, and of course that case does not natively support USB 3.0. The brackets fit properly and look good but the mesh around the sides does not actually let airflow in, there is plastic behind the mesh so that was a bit of a disappointment. Still, I think I know why Coolermaster probably made them that way; without that plastic backing the whole thing would be just too flimsy so it's an OK trade-off as far as i care. The only real gripe I have with this bracket is that the arms that you are supposed to use to mount is are too short to work with the tool-less mounting feature of the HAF 932s 5.25" bays. I had to use two screws and manually align the front depth of the bracket myself. Not exactly the highest quality mounting solution there Coolermaster. It's mounting rail arms should have been deep enough to use four screws, not the short little arms that only reach two of the front screw holes. It works but it's not as good a mounting solution as other front-panel brackets I have seen.
One other thing, I would have liked Coolermaster to offer this bracket with 4 ports instead of just two. There's certainly enough space to work with here that it could be done and I have seen other manufacturers do it. Think about it as an option now that Z10 chipset and it's future successors natively support four front USB 3.0 ports. Better yet, build 4 USB 3.0 and 4 USB 2.0 ports into all your upcoming cases. That is a feature I would like to see.

Received the bracket in short order.
Was very happy with the fit and how it matched my existing case.
I found that the tooless design will not work so after looking at the advanced 932 haf X it shows that the tooless button mechanism is removed from the bay that you will be using for the usb 3.0 bracket.
I was able to easily slide out the corresponding button and manually screw in the bracket for a secure fit.
Very happy with the look and function of this accessory bracket.
Price was very fair other than the $10 for shipping but that is the same anywhere.

I bought this as an add-on to my several-years-old HAF 932 case to add front-panel access to USB 3.0 ports. Not sure if the newer cases are the same, mine has the push-button drive lock on one side. The drive lock almost but not quite obscures access to where a screw would usually go while on the other side access to a screw is easy. This bracket does not provide for using the drive. It's only got a (threaded) hole on each side. That would make for difficulty fumbling after a small screw in a tight place. A quick trip to my drill press to create an extra mount hole to accommodate the lock pin did the trick. You really do need to secure the bracket on both sides. The ports themselves are nice and tight and look like they'll last. The bracket face is a perfect match for the case. The price for the bracket is excellent but the high shipping cost makes up for it, pushing overall cost higher than you might expect. Bottom line: I'd recommend this for anyone wanting to add front panel USB 3.0 ports to their HAF 932 case.

I wish it was set up to allow mounting in any case but the holes don't match (my Silverstone case anyway). Still, when I move it to my HAF 932 in the future, it will be perfect in there since currently it only has USB 3 ports. I would recommend it to anyone who has a HAF 932 without front panel USB 3 ports and don't feel like upgrading their entire case to get convenient access to USB 3.

The bracket adds USB 3.0 functionality to any HAF 932 case, I imagine it'd work in any case provided it fits and your motherboard has USB3 connectors though.
I was a little disappointed it wasn't a 'tool-less' design like the rest of the case, but the screws that came with my case originally were the correct thread pattern to mount it. I would have also liked if the steel mesh pattern matched the original removable front 5.25 mesh inserts a little better but it's close enough, I doubt most people will notice...the original inserts have a bit of black plastic around the border, this bracket has the mesh folded around the edge of all four sides. All in all, if you have a motherboard that supports USB3 and you'd like to have access to USB3 ports on the front of your HAF case...this will work.

This wasn't a good fit into my Haf-932. I had to remove the existing bracket and drill to secure it with screws instead. It is functional now, but not perfectly level and not as professionally installed. I'm annoyed at Coolermaster for not noting this lack of fit in the item description.

It easily connects to the motherboard's 19-pin header. It will (probably) work just fine. BUT, the standard mounting clips on each side of the blank face plates for an HAF 932 are missing from this product. Further, the arms are not deep enough to reach back to the clamp built into the card cage. And yet further, the card's design precludes simply attaching it to, for instance, an unused 3.5" to 5.25" adapter to stabilize it in the tower unless one can find an adapter that screws to the inside of the product.

Perfect fit and function. If you have a CM case it'll match in finish, too.
