Introduction to the Coolermaster HAF 912
Just a few years ago we were graced with the first case from Cooler Master’s HAF series. The HAF 932 is still around today and one of the best selling gaming cases available. For about $130 or so you have all the features one would want in a gaming case: large fans, rugged good looks, plenty of room inside and best of all the Cooler Master quality.
After the HAF 932 came the HAF 932 AMD Edition, then the slightly smaller HAF 922 which still retained many of the HAF 932’s features. Not too long ago we had a chance to look at the monster of the series, the HAF X.
So what do you do when you don’t need a large case? Coolermaster has the answer for you; it is the HAF 912. The 912 is a mid-size tower that stands a mere nineteen inches tall, but still has the look that we came to love from the preceding HAF models. The HAF 912 shares the same great rugged looks, spacious interior, and great air circulation like it’s bigger brothers; however, it has one thing unique only to it, it’s budget price point. If you’re like us, you are left wondering how was Coolermaster able to build such a great case for a mere $60? Join us in the following pages and find out!
Cool Master’s take on the HAF 912
Cooler Master’s HAF 912 further enriches the HAF series by adding a compact, yet fully featured, mid-tower solution for enthusiasts and budget conscious gamers alike. Its seemingly small exterior supports a plethora of interior features such as twelve devices, high end GPU cards like the ATI Radeon HD 5970 and the NVIDIA GTX 480, large CPU coolers, two 200mm fans, and six 120mm fans.
The HAF 912 embodies the rugged aesthetic and qualities of its brethren while remaining attractively priced. Its traits more closely resemble that of a mid to high-end case than that of other cases in its price range. The HAF 912 pays tribute to the legacy of HAF 932 & HAF 922 in ease of installation, high airflow, and compatibility with water cooling hardware.
