    Cooler Master is to announce the new HAF 912 Case on 05.09.2010 as per their countdown page

    Anybody knows anything about this case? Will it be a Mini-Tower MicroATX case? (I hope :respect: ) since they are saying "when size doesn't matter" so logically it should be smaller than it's elder sister the HAF 922 which is a Midi-Tower ATX case, right?

    I'm thinking it will be something like the NZXT Vulcan but with the highly regarded HAF styling, features, and build quality.

    Should be pretty stinkin cool. The HAF X is awesome, hopefully this will be too.

    ... by that you've summarized the perfect case for my upcoming m-ATX gaming rig, I hope that Cooler Master don't fail us ...

    If this happens it would be a shame :(

    Any other ideas for an aggressive-looking mini-tower m-ATX case? or should I just wait for NZXT to build the Vulcan 2 and fix all the flaws of the original?

    I have to agree, it looks damn ugly, and nothing like the HAF-X as I was hoping. I thought that this case will turn out to be the NZXT Vulcan killer, but it seems that I was too hopeful. Any ideas for an aggressive-looking mini-tower micro-atx gaming case?

    if they had kept the styling of the 922 and made it m-atx then it would have been nice

    edit, look at the nzxt volcan/vulcan

    1) Many limitations on the aftermarket CPU coolers that can be installed.
    2) Allows for only 80/92mm rear fan and not 120mm fan, so I can't install the Corsair H70.
    3) Bad paint quality, since coating is easily peels off (as reported).
    4) Doesn't allow for the installation of a standard 200mm fan on the side panel, and forces you to buy the non-standard NZXT 200mm white fan, which is ugly.
    5) The MoBo is too close to the top two exhaust fans.

    Nice, but not a Micro-ATX case, which is what I'm looking for.

    Huh Budget? its like £85 in the UK thats like midrange, low high end. My case the K-62 is about £80. 922 is a decent case though depends a lot on what looks you like.

    Wonder what this will be like.
