Conclusion: The outside appearance stays true to the militaristic look of the HAF series. The HAF 912 uses simple lines but the accents are overstated. The chunky blocks on the front almost look like armor panels on a tank. Apart from the look of the front there is not much else to distinguish the case from others on the market, but the style is emphasized so much that you'll either love or hate the look.
Pros: Can fit 13" video cards, Modular 3.5" drive bay, Many configuration options, Extra space under motherboard tray, Spacious for it's size, Room for many extra fans, Compatible with internal or external radiator, Quick install time, Many cable routing options
Cons: Not enough hard drive damping, Only one tool-less 5.25" bay, A screwdriver required to install most hardware, Only two fans by default
Excerpt: The Cooler Master Mid Tower HAF 912 case looks to follow in the path blazed by it’s armor clad bigger brethren. The amazing popularity of the HAF series is unquestionable, the only thing left to wonder is, can the 912 live up to the expectations?
Pros: Very well thought out internal structure, Lots of fan options for air cooling, Large precut holes and sealed grommets for potential water cooling, Top mounted space for 2×120 radiator installation, Removable center 3.5inch drive bay to allow video cards larger than 12 inches, Solid construction and inspiring appearance
Excerpt: Cooler Master has had great success with the HAF series of chassis designs. This lineup includes the HAF 932, the HAF 922, and the HAF X I had the pleasure of seeing about a month ago. The main idea of the chassis is to offer High Air Flow, as the naming scheme suggests. In all three of the previous versions, air flow was definitely included in the design and layout of those chassis'. Some had windows, some didn't; some were painted black throughout, and some weren't.
Conclusion: At £50, the HAF 912 represents an excellent investment. It’s only a little more expensive than the Antec Three Hundred, but I think the extra bit of money is worth it. You get a much more attractive interior and a stronger case in general. There’s more cooling options and cable management that will satisfy even the most OCD of PC enthusiasts.
Pros: Looks great, Good price point, Impressive stock cooling and plenty of expansion options, Excellent cable management.
Cons: No USB 3.0 ports, PSU a little fiddly to install
