My First Case Mod - HAF 912

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
So on a spur of the moment decision, somewhere around 5am, after going 30 hours with no sleep, I decided that I was going to go pick up a HAF 912 in the morning, and starting doing some mods.

Started out completely stock.

To Do:
1. Paint inside Black [X]
2. Paint front panel, top panel, side stripes Red [X]
3. Decals [ ] (In Progress)
4. Install Parts [X]
5. Cable Management [X]
6. False Floor [X] -going to redo this at some point.
7. Window? [ ]
8. Lighting [ ] (In Progress)

If anyone has any ideas for me, let me know!! This is my first case mod ever tongue.gif

Good job. Window in the future?
post #4 of 28
That look great! it makes me want to mod my 912 as well. One question though, how were you able to mount the H60 in the back there while still retaining the top 200mm fan? I wasn't able to mount my H50 back there due to it hitting the top 200mm fan.

The 200mm fan on the top isn't 100% correctly in place. I have 2 fans on my rad, the 200mm fan is sort of lodged on top of the rad fan. Only got 2 screws in.

Window coming soon, likely next weekend. Any ideas for the window? I want to be able to put a fan or 2 near the bottom of the side panel in order to better cool my video card.

Decals should be here tuesday.
Got the asus rog eye, and the sticker you get with the asus maximus! Should look bad ass.

Took a couple pictures to try and show you how I have the fan mounted up top. To me it doesnt look bad, still getting 100% air flow through the top really.

Needing some help with the lighting! I have 1 white cold cathode in there right now, and I have another red one sitting here. I think I like the white light the best, but what do you guys think? another cathode, or should I be finding some sort of light bar? Cathodes just dont seem that bright.

Is that solely the 200mm on top? If so you have it mounted incorrectly.smile.gif
