Hi all, I bought a HAF 912 Plus on Saturday, here it is:
The stock fan on the back made a low, but noticeable racket, so I replaced it with a Noise Blocker XL1, the same model I put above to push air upwards.
The Sata cables and power cables are like that because I like easy access to the HDD's. Putting the HDD's the other way around would defeat the purpose of having such an easy to use mechanism to put HDD's in this case. Of course some people don't need to move HDD's very often, so it's always an option. (By the way, why did Cooler Master cheap out and used normal screws to secure the right side panel ? Cheaper cases have the same easy screws on both panels)
And here is some neat cable management on the back for those non-believers that think the case does not have enough room. It's all about good organization
The panel slides smoothly.
It's true though that you should consider carefully if you have a non-modular PSU. You will have some difficulties to hide all the cables behind the motherboard tray, but since there are many cable tie attachment points in there, you can always try.
P.S.: TO the OP: in the owners list you need to change the 912 naming. There is the regular 912, the 912 Advanced, but also the 912 Plus, which is the one I have.Edited by tpi2007 - 4/4/11 at 4:45pm
