Written by Sanjin Rados

Review: Smaller, lighter and cheaper




HAF 912 is a case that will surely catch your eye, regardless of whether you like it or not. It would most certainly look great in a space station but it’s up to you to check whether it will look right in your room.

HAF 912 Plus comes entirely painted black and is built from steel, except for the few plastic pieces on the front panel. The case measures 230x480x496mm (9.1x18.9x19.5 inch) measured with the rubber feet. It weighs in at 8.45kg or 18.6 lbs and is very stable.

The side panel will take another 120/140mm fan but the additional fan doesn’t come with any version of HAF 912.

HAF 912 Plus and Advanced come with a 200mm LED fan on the front panel, whereas HAF 912 comes with a 120mm instead. Note that the front panel can house two 120mm instead of a 200mm.

The front panel as well as the area beneath the PSU have dust filter.

You’ll find the I/O at the top of front panel. Plus and Advanced versions of the case also feature one eSATA connector, which is not there in the American HAF 912.

HAF 912’s top panel looks much like the one on its big brother – the HAF 932. As you can see, there is a pad you can use to keep miscellaneous things (keys, sticks, etc.) near-by, with the spot for a 200mm (or two 120mm ones) behind it. Note that only HAF 912 Advanced comes with a top panel fan.

The right panel is identical on all HAF 912 cases – a flat steel plate.

HAF 912 offers 7+1 slots and the PSU is mounted at the bottom. Beneath the rear fan (120mm, 1200RPM, 17dBA) you’ll find three holes used for water cooling.
