    The problem is, CM won't hire a PM that can't speak Mandarin...
    They are looking for some junior staff in the marketing department though...

    I notice two 120s in the front instead of a 200mm and nothing on the top.

    That's the most basic model, expect more features on the higher-end ones

    Why no talk about the HAF X? I know it's still a pretty new case, but I still here more about the 9xx series then their full tower Haf x.

    Right, that's the most basic model. Not sure when the models with more features will launch though, but I can't imagine it will take long.

    Ok,

    They finnaly did some cool shit, but i dont like the case looks, i need black interior.

    But take a look at the 3 and 1 hd cage bay.

    It switches like a socket from 90 degree's to face out case in a sliding motion.

    Now thats what i like.

    and you can unclip it and take it out all together. :toast:

    ya they didnt paint the inside to help save on money to cheapen the price ... I guess it is a good thing there is no window or it would be really bad haha

    @3volved, You can also pull the SSD rack off the floor and mount it on top of the bottom section;)

    Why did CM go with the old bare metal chassis? The trend of black interior in stock cases is an excellent feature.

    EDIT: Oh I just saw copenhagen comment pop up haha...

    in their words, paint doesn't help in cable management or airflow, and what Cope says.

    True, plus it's not that hard to paint a case anyway.;) I guess I just assumed it was standard in case nowadays.

    Plus, if you are good enough to cut a window to show off the inside, you are good enough to paint the inside ;)

    I've started this thread hoping that the CM HAF 912 case would turn out to be a Mini-Tower MicroATX Gaming Case which would compete with the NZXT Vulcan (since all what they said about it was "When size doesn't matter"), but unfortunately it wasn't, so this means that I'll keep looking for a decent aggressive/industrial-looking Mini-Tower MicroATX Gaming Case for my new gaming rig build.

    I already guessed that it'll get a KICK ASS RATING ;)
    I like 3DGAMEMAN's reviews, but he really shouldn't bother himself with rating stuff, specially if everything will at the end get a KICK ASS RATING.
