Review: Smaller, lighter and cheaper
Today is HAF 912 Plus' official launch date, and we've obviously been busy since the earlier HAF 912 Plus preview. We now know that there will be three versions of this case launching at particular regions; Asia gets the Advance version ($99), Europe will get Plus ($79) whereas the US gets the best price deal ($59) but it comes with only basic equipment.
The difference between the versions is that Advanced and Plus versions come with black painted interior but only Advanced comes with a side panel window. Advance and Plus’ I/O panels feature two USB 2.0 ports, one audio and one mic connector as well as an e-SATA connector.
HAF stands for High Air Flow but we’re not quite certain whether HAF 912 deserves the name – it comes with two 120mm fans, one at the front and one at the back panel. HAF 912 Plus also has two fans, but the one on the front panel is a 200mm LED fan. HAF 912 Advanced boasts the best arsenal as it comes with three fans - a 120mm fan on the back, a 200mm on the front and another 200mm fan on the top panel.
No matter which HAF 912 you opt for, you can use the following fans:
Front: 200 mm fan x 1, (can be swapped for two 120mm fans),
Top: 200 mm fan x 1 (can be swapped for two 120mm fans),
Rear: 120 mm fan x 1,
Side:120/140 mm fan x 1
We’ve received the HAF 912 Plus version so let’s see what it offers.
