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.
Upon opening the case, it's impossible not to notice that a lot of thought went into improving things that people didn't like about the Elite 120. The most noticeable change is the inclusion of a sleek black mesh front. The front has seen a redesign with the 2:1 USB 2.0 to 3.0 ratio inverted; the front of the case now sports two USB 3.0 ports. Also new on the front of the case is a much sturdier and more stylish looking power and reset button combination. For those with precise vision, it's also worth noting that several centimeters have been shaved off of the dimensions of the case, though it's worth noting that the slightly-jutting bracket that allows for a full-size ATX PSU remains.
Inside the case, as in the previous version, Cooler Master has done a good job making it easy to get to all of the cables that will find their way onto your motherboard headers. Also bundled is a zip-lock bag with the standard fare that you'd expect for a computer case: motherboard standoffs, zip-ties, and screws. A nice touch is the inclusion of rubber vibration-reducing pads that can be screwed into a 3.5" HD or an SSD and then slid into the various locations that can house drives on this case. Also nice to see is that the previously-riveted drive cage can now be taken out altogether by removing three screws. This is great for those who value space and airflow over the ability to house multiple drives. Unchanged since the 120, I was glad to see that the tool-less 5.25" optical drive bay mount was kept around for this version of the case.
As strange as it may sound, I must say that cable management is a joy with this case. The aforementioned PSU bracket has a big part in this, giving valuable space at the front of the power supply that can be used to bundle cables and prevent them from interfering with the air blown through the case with the 120 mm fan in the front. This bracket has a nicely-appointed "TOP" engraved, giving builders the choice of whether to install their power supplies with the fan facing up (which allows ambient air to cool the PSU) or facing down (which lets the PSU fan remove warm air from over the top of the motherboard). Also present is an 80 mm fan at the right side of the cage, which helps cool the motherboard, but which can also be removed if it would be ineffective for a given motherboard setup. It's worth pointing out that both of these included fans only have 3-pin connectors, meaning that PWM can't be used. These fans come bundled with Molex converters (for easy plugging into any standard power supply) and are quiet enough that I barely hear them from more than 3 feet away. Once everything is put together, there are plenty of points at which cables can be bundled and zip-tied. After about an hour of work, I have a clear view from the front of the case to the back of the motherboard with nary a dangling cable present.
In terms of what else can be put into this case, Cooler Master advertises that full-size GPUs can be easily installed and I must concur. I had no problem sliding a GTX 660 TI into the case. If you are looking to use this as a gaming machine, rest assured that this case can both house most any card you might want to use, as well as provide enough air flow to keep it cool.
If you're looking for a case with a small form factor, room for decent hardware, and cable management options for OCD computer builders, look no further than the Cooler Master Elite 130. For combining customizability with a sleek new design and a great price point, this case gets a 5/5 in my book.
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
