Warning: Small issue with CM HAF 912 MOBO mounting!!!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
If you refer to the guide while building it, the screws it tells you to use to secure your mobo into place are wrong. It shows the "flat head" screws being used, but you actually have to use the ones with rounded head.

I got a stripped screw now which I can't remove, but because I'm awesome I was able to drill a small hole and have the screw drop into that. Now, my mobo is secured properly, but one screw is moot.

Just a heads uP!

Otherwise, this case owns. CM doesn't lie when they say HIGH AIR FLOW lol.

Meh here's my care face ~.~. it was my first time building a pc and the case should have had better instructions. the time spent sending back the case, and explaining to MSI why my board had a stripped screw and socket would have taken forever.

the 912 is 50 dollars, and i'm planning on getting the HAF 922 next year because i plan on upgrading my cpu to an i7 and adding a 2nd 6870 card. right now the case is kinda open but its kinda cramped.

CM PRODUCTS OWN!


pls CM just fix that small misprint in the instructions so noobs like me don't get owned!
