    I find coolermaster case a mixed bag.. for example, their elite series has an option to mount a 240 rad internally on top, however, it does not have sideways hdd racks and has no cable management options..

    [​IMG]

    HAF 912 on the other hand, a more expensive case, has those features, sans internally mounted 240 rad (only mountable outside, which looks fugly nowadays in which clean and neat is whats trendy)

    [​IMG]

    Such a shame, was thinking of the 912 as a replacement for my CM690 way back. Then saw it was not able to fit a 240 inside without any modding. Wtf they thinking? Do they live in the 90s? External rad!? This is 2011 man

    Thank you. As there is nothing in the case promoting cable management, it took a long time to get it to look that way. For how little it cost though, I have no complaints.

    Nice clubhouse going! I used to have HAF 922 and HAF 932 a while back. At the time nothing was even close in terms of airflow. The newer 912 and HAF X I think are a nice improvement.

    Just waiting on a trade to complete, then I'll have a Storm Sniper and join this clubhouse :rockout:

    Cooler Master HAF 912 owner here.
    But not an "official" user until September.
    It's still in the box with computer parts installed in it is what I mean.

    The Elite series are low-budget chassis. The idea is to pack some features while keeping the cost low, so don't expect much. The HAF 912 is a cheap HAF. The reason it's called a HAF is because it has improved air-flow, compared to the Elites, and the target audience are those that can't afford a HAF X, but still want something that looks cool. Also, going from a CM690 to a 912 is taking two steps backwards, the idea would be to go from a CM690 to a CM690II Advanced, a HAF 932, or a HAF X.
    I can't complain about my chassis, though. It was cheap, yes, but it is well built, it's practical and I don't cut my fingers when I'm changing hardware. There isn't much room inside, but with imagination, cable management can be done. By now, I realized I should have waited for the Elite 430, but I'm not going to make the change...maybe for a new build.

    It's a great case, no doubt. You do have some cable mess in there and, IIRC, the HAF X has very good cable-management options. Also, why are you feeding the cards trough molex adapters when you have a AX1200?!?! It doesn't add up! :confused:
