Haf 912?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Good New Everyone!,

I am going to build a rig in the near future and I was wondering if a HAF 912 would suffice this rig :

Intel i5-2500k
BIOSTAR TP67XE (B3) LGA 1155 Intel P67 ATX Mobo
4GB DDR3 RAM
650w Corsair PSU
Corsair H60
Sound Blaster
GTX 550 Ti ZOTAC
1TB HDD 3.5"
ASUS DVD Burner 5.25"

And all the fans possible covered for cool flow

And if you have any recommendations please feel free to post

In my experience, the 912 has been wonderful. Very roomy and very nice cable management options for a mid tower. I love that it has a separate bay to hold up to two SSDs and that one of the hard drive cages can be removed to fit any graphics card or to improve airflow. I put a 200mm on the top for exhaust and a 200mm as front intake. Couldn't be happier with it.

Edit: As for suggestions, here are some other great mid towers:

Lian Li PC-K62
Corsair 650D
Cooler Master Storm Scout
Fractal Design Define R3
Cooler Master CM 690 II Advanced

I was about to say the exact same thing, I also switched out with 200mm fans.

A lot of people say it's an "ugly" case, but I don't see how it's ugly...I modded mine with a side window and it looks great! It's $60, and actually it's cheaper on Geeks.com, somewhere around $40, let me get you a link.

Just noticed that it's refurbished, but it is $37, you're choice.

I like mine. For a simple build, it works. I was given mine, so was a no brainer. I'd buy one if cheap enough though. I'm not the best to ask about these things though, looks mean nothing to me. With proper fans it does a good job in terms of performance though, that is all that I cared about.

Happy owner for a Haf 912. I was surprised how roomy it is compared to my old ATX case. Too bad it doesn't have a side window. The Haf 912 advanced has a side window and black interior but it sets you back $100.
