Pros: Roomy, easy to work in, cable management, supports 3.5'' and 2.5'' drives, lots of airflow

Cons: Interior is pretty plain looking, looks a bit ugly

Currently using this case but added on a few more fans. It comes with 2x120mm fans, but currently have 3x120mm fans plus a 200mm intake fan up front and it moves a ton of air while not making much noise. The price of an additional 200mm fan will bring the overall price up considerably. Though you have the option of either a single 200mm or dual 120mm fans up front.

Lots of room in the case. Have an ATX motherboard mounted inside and there is room on all sides of the motherboard with accommodating cable routing hole all over so you can hide cables. This was fantastic, except I had an unforeseen problem when I upgraded to this case; my PSU's modular cables were too short so I was unable to utilize some of this case's cable routing features. The airflow is excellent with the additional fans and I'm sure the airflow isn't too shabby with the included fans. This case is on the wide/large side for a case (9 inches and 19 inches respectively) hence all the room inside, but all that room makes it extremely easy to work in. There are some nice touches with this case such as the included 2.5'' support bays, removable HDD cages, and rubber mounts for where the PSU sits to eliminate vibration.

The exterior is a love-hate thing. To be completely honest, I dislike the looks of it. I mainly purchased it because my old Thermaltake case that it replaced was a steaming pile of feces and I had to do something to get rid of it. The HAF logo on the side is a bit much for me. I also wish the interior was black like the HAF 912 Advanced that is unavailable to those in the U.S. This is definitely a case of function and practicality over beauty.

If you're simply looking for a case that offers excellent cooling, cable management, and practicality, definitely stop and take a look at the HAF 912. The only other case that might come close in terms of this much performance/value is the NZXT Gamma/M59. If you care about the way the interior and exterior of your case looks, then you may want to keep looking. tongue.gif
