From Cooler Master:
“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.”
The HAF 912 design follows a military style design, having rugged edges and having an armored look. The case was designed to have a great looking design at a minimal price. As you can see, the exterior does look really nice.
The front bezel is mainly composed of a wire mesh, but has plastic overlays to give it that rugged look. The cooler master logo resides on the bottom half of the bezel.
The top of the bezel has four external 5.25” drive bays, with one being able to be used as a 3.5” drive bay. The front easy access ports rest near the top of the bezel and include two USB, audio/mic jacks, and power/reset buttons.
The top of the case includes a raised flat platform, allowing you to rest other things such as your phone, keys or other items. Behind that is the fan grill built into the case which supports two 120mm fans, a 200mm fan, or a water-cooling radiator.
The side panel is pretty simple in design except for the 120mm/140mm side panel fan grill, the HAF logo, and a slight raise of the case going from front to rear.
To keep the costs down, Cooler Master has not painted both the rear of the case or the interior of it. The back panel has a lower mounted PSU slot, followed by a 7 + 1 expansion slots (7 in the normal position, plus one in a vertical position), three water-cooling holes, motherboard I/O slot, and 120mm exhaust grill.
The main side panel has two thumb screws to secure it to the case, while the other panel has standard screws.
On the bottom of the case are four rubber feet and a removable filter for the PSU.
