Hi i,m gonna buy a new HAF932 pc case and i,m gonna transplant all my components over to this new case, this is my first transplant so can u tell if i need to unistall my sound & graphic drivers before i do because i presume that when i remove the cards (sound & graphics) this will remove my drivers that are installed so like i said do i need to unistall drivers then re-install them once i have completed the transplant and also is there anything else i would need to know that would be important when doing my first tranplant...many thanks....!

no way - if your motherboard stays the same, and all hardware plugged into it stays the same, and the harddrive where the drivers are already installed stays the same, you should not need to change any drivers.

I would recommend leaving the CPU and Heatsink on the motherboard - there is no reason to remove them from the mobo only to put them back on in the new case - just move the CPU/HSF/mobo together.

Also, benchtest your board before you screw it into the new case: set the mobo on a non-conductive surface with everything plugged into it, and see if you can get into the BIOS. That sure beats screwing the whole thing into the case, hitting the power button, and having nothing happen...
