Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The HAF 912 was consistently mentioned across the web by PC enthusiasts and amateurs as a strong case choice for both form and function. Cooler Master named the HAF series to stand for "High Air Flow" and these cases truly shine in that area. I am running an AMD 955 black edition processor overclocked to 4.0gHz and also a Radeon 6950 1gb video card and the case stays between 27-40 degrees celsius on the stock fans (depending on if I am just browsing the web or utilizing more CPU power). I thought I would need to purchase a bunch of extra case fans in order to keep my system temperatures down, but such is not the case. The huge vent in the top of the case can accommodate up to a 200mm case fan, but for now it works very well as just an exhaust vent. Most of the hot air exits through this area.
The 912 also takes a minimalist approach in terms of design and does not include a giant window or bright LED lights like some other cases boast. For myself this was perfectly fine, but if you are looking for a case that has all of these extra features then this is not the right choice for you. I didn't need a flashy case and instead I wanted my money to be spent on build quality and necessary features. Here are some of the key reasons I would recommend this case to a prospective builder:
Airflow- Superb, even with only the stock fans (discussed above).
Capacity/Size- There is plenty of room inside this case. It supports the larger ATX motherboards as well as the micro-ATX motherboards. Longer video cards can be accommodated by easily removing the extra drive bay(s).
Cable management- The HAF 912 has great cable management for a mid-tower case. If you don't know what cable management is or why it is important, it basically means how well the case tucks away the giant spiderweb of wires so that it does not clutter the inside of your system. The HAF 912 has room behind the right side panel for excess wires to be stored. I have a non-modular power supply which literally has about 10 extra cables that I did not use for my build and that I needed to hide somewhere. This case was able to conceal them behind the motherboard, no problem. This is essential because without proper cable management the wires will actually clutter and block the overall airflow throughout the case and lead to higher temperatures.
Tool-less drive bay installation- Installing the CD/DVD drive is literally a snap and takes no more than 10 seconds to do. It only comes with one (1) tool-less drive bay, but that's all most people will need.
Price- The case will only set you back about $50-60 depending on if it's on sale. While you aren't going to have all the bells and whistles that some cases have you are getting features in this case that are not seen until you move up into the $70-90 bracket.
The HAF 912 is truly a great mid-tower case that will not disappoint. I highly recommend this case to both new and avid PC builders alike.
No sharp edges.
If you have not build small form factor PC before, make sure that watch youtube videos. You want to add the components in certain order.
- remove the front panel
- remove the cover plate
- remove the bracket for PSU
- mount the DVD Burner first.
- put the front panel back
- mount the 3.5" hard drive
- layout out the cables from the front panel
- mount the CPU onto the motherboard (without the heat sink)
- connect all the power swtich, hard drive, speakers cables from the front panel to the mother board (anything that is hard to read or connect)
- connect one of the fan as system fan onto motherboard
- mount the mother board
- add the memory
- connect the remaining cables, like USB 3.0 and USB 2.0
- connect the internal SATA cables to your drives
- connect the fan from the heat sink onto mother board
- mount the heat sink
- mount the PSU onto the bracket
- partially slide in the PSU unit, connect the power cables to mother board, drives, and fan etc.
- complete slide in the PSU unit into the case (slowly), you don't want to knock out any cables that are already connected
- mount the drive
- tidy up all the cables, make sure they are not blocking/touch any of the fans, in particular the one from the heat sink.
- close the case
- plug it in and power it up
enjoy your new machine

- Wish it came with extra fans and better air filter, other than that I am very happy with the case.
Cable mgmt is excellent, USB 3.0 on the front as well as Esata and 1394 and USB 2.0, covered on/off switch (reset too).
Wheels are included. Air filters on all openings - except for some reason not on the bottom in front of the PSU. All tool-less drive bays, 2 hot swap drive bays in front (amazingly these are not tool-less..wtf were they thinking?).
It includes 3, 200 mm fans (top - out, front - in, side - in, and one 120 mm on the rear out. It also has a place for a second (optional) 200 mm fan on the top.
So far it has been a pleasure to work with. I will update this as the build progresses.
update - the only thing marginal are the hot swap drawers. they require screws to hold the drives in (the included thumbscrews work at least) so it not terrible, but it would have been cool to have a method to yank drives in and out with no real effort at all. still 5 stars
