The thing that bothers me most is that I still can't decide if friends who see this case will think it's built for teenagers (i'm in my twenties). But it's also one of the only reasonably priced cases I can find here in China. The other haf cases just appear too big for my needs and they are 30 to 40% more expensive that what you buy em for in the USA.

I can easily recommend the 912.

Don't judge it by the pictures, It's a large case (the pics don't do it justice), and while not sleek as mentioned earlier, it's just got that "look" like its hiding real power in there.

Exactly. I've got my 912 and 932 next to each other under my desk, can't help but grin when I look down there. Knowing what's inside helps too wink.gif

OK,

i'm sure air cooling will be fine during half the year, here in Shanghai ambient temps go up to well above 30c though and I would like to overclock the ivy cpu and the next gen of gpu from ati or nvidea. 932 looks good for water cooling, the 912 i've seen pics of people attaching external rads to it.

I would love to see a photo of your haf912 next to something I know the scale of, such as a can of coca cola wink.gif

It's so hard to decide between a full tower like haf x or a tiny one like 912. I think the future of desktop computing will be most people just having 1 gpu on standard atx mobo or even matx, so i'm leaning towards something small like 912.

I was thinking about getting a smaller version but I went into ncix and the haf x was $40 off so I went for it. It has so much room, if you can find it on sale definitely go for the full tower smile.gif

But i'f im certain i won't be doing sli or crossfire, and i only have 1 HDD and 1 SDD, what do i need that extra space for? Here i can buy the haf x for 206$, never lower than that. The storm trooper is 200$, so 6$ cheaper.

the haf series cases are some of the best air cooled cases on the market. Even though you don't have much in your case would you still want less space or more? for 6 extra dollars I would want to have more space and maximum airflow. Plus it future proofs you.

Think you misunderstand, the HAF 912 advanced is 103$ here.

The HAF x and Storm Trooper are both basically 100$ more. So is that extra space worth the double price...

I know that this is a HAF thread but am trying to help here.

 

I know you haven't spoken about this but do you like and can you get the Cooler Master 690 II Advanced?  I think your area of the world you'll be able to get the new USB 3.0 versioned one.

I ended up getting the 932 because the H100 doesn't fit in a 912, and I needed another case anyway. Middle shot is a full ATX board and 5770. It'll fit a Hyper 212+ easily and lots of room for cable management behind the board.

You could try for a 922. Its the middle ground between the 912 and 932. Its larger than the 912 with great cablemanagement but not quite as big as the 932. Its probably within the Mid range price between the 2 as well. Try and see if you can find one in your area.

Great cases the whole HAF line.

 

Just a note that the HAF 922 and HAF 932 come with no fan dust filters if it even matters.
