That's a good case. It's essentially the HAF912 Advanced for cheaper and with cosmetic changes. And instead of a USB 3.0 drive bay expansion, it comes with it native on the front panel.

Also, technically the HAF912 doesn't come with any filter except the PSU filter.

The HAF912 Advance is in and out of stock on the CM Store page quite frequently, so if you like that look over the CM Storm Enforcer, get that. They both come with 2 200mm fans, black interior, and all the blah blah.

The HAF922 I think offers better cooling in some instances however. You can have a 200mm fan on the front, side, and top. Since the front is so far from any other components than the HDD cages, the air spreads out much more and when it reaches the actual motherboard, it's not as effective.

The side 200mm fan can blow on all your components effectively, while the top will exhaust the hot air. It's also a better solution for lets say, an Antec Kuhler 620, or Corsair H50/60/70 coolers because the top isn't as low as it is in the HAF912, so you can keep all your fan mounts (except the rear, of course because of the rad mount).

I like that because although you're getting a cooler CPU, your surrounding components usually skyrocket in temps because of no active airflow in that area. To fix it, mount a 200mm fan on the side and enjoy your frosty temps.

I've owned an Antec 900, HAF912, HAF 922, NZXT Tempest EVO, Elite 341, NZXT Rogue, and I must say the HAF922 and Elite 341 have had the best temps overall because of the fan mounting orientations.

Well, so here's 4 cases
-Storm Scout
-CM690II Advance
-CMHAF 922
-CMHAF 912

Actually, all of the case are pretty darn good. If you prefer better price, get the 690 or the 912. Still, there's one thing I'm a little concern about, is that the 690II has way too much fan holes....so who use that much holes anyway? there's like....11 or 12 of them. It affects your air pressure a lot, even if you calculated everything nicely, the air flow may still be neutral. Unless you fill all those holes with your fans ( cost a lot though wth.gif )
No disrespect to the case and anyone who liked it.

And hey, the Storm scout is a cool looking case, but when you compare the price versus fear factor aspect, its quite pricy though. Not suitable for a budget case. frown.gif still, cool looking case, loads of functions great for a gamers case, if you don't mind the price though

The HAF 912 and 922......to me, the 912 is just a cheaper version $59.99 of the 922 as they cut off the cost on the exposed side panel. If you wanna compare the beauty of the cases, the front panel looks better in the HAF 922 IMO. The mobo tray, I'd pick the 912. why? the cpu retension hole is quite small as I couldn't insert my CPU cooler through the holes.
And yes, for those water cooling guys out there, don't pick the 912 if you want an internal rad than an exposed rad. Btw, what I liked about the 912 is actually the positioning of the hdd is up to date, just like most cases but I have no idea why cooler master just leave one tool-less adapter......strange:confused: confused.gifconfused.gif


IMO, all of them are good cases. Its your choice man.

Pfft ok you got me there, but I meant like individual fan filters. But you're right.

haf-912-2.jpg[/QUOTE]

That is the HAF 912 Advanced. Unfortunately it's in Asia only and I can't but the HAF 912 Advance or Plus versions in Canada. The Storm Enforcer is the same price as the Storm Scout and personally I find it them the exact same. I like the Storm Scout.

I'm going to go with the Storm Scout because of the red effects and I currently have a Red lighting kit and other red led crap. Also the window is nice because I recently bought a red Sleeved LED case lighting kit. The CM 690 II doesn't have a side panel and the lighting effects are blue and like I said I have red ones currently.

Thank's anyways guys smile.gif I appreciate it
