How far would you have to carry it? If it's just your building to your car then it should be fine. The case probably weighs 25-30lbs with stuff in it

No, I'm going to sleeve with my own sleeve, so is the stuff that I shown ok?

To various places on campus.
Anyways, reading your guys comments, I think this case is a safe bet then. So I'm not so worried about the size/weight of the thing anymore. Thanks guys.

Also, one more thing. Are the side fans useful? Does it make a difference?

I think they look ugly, and I would use the plexi glass mod to make a new window, and have no fan slot, so I can actually see inside, but I don't know if it is worth it.

Well I move my case to my dads house and back to my mums every weekend. I couldn't have bought anything better. The handle will not break as it has reinforced metal inside the plastic. I totally recommend this case to you as it is perfect for someone in college who will have to move it around a little.

A lot of people do a clear window mod. The side fans cant be used really if you install an after market cooler

This post is for all you new builders that have recently joined the club or are just browsing the thread.

You don't have to be a master modder or a super experienced builder to get great looking and functional results using the stock materials you get with new hardware going into a new build. Bling does not make your machine faster only cooler looking.

So lets take a HAF 912 (yes, I know it's not a Scout, but...) and a box of parts as I said earlier that just "showed up" at my door.




with a little patience and some trial and error, even us experienced builders have to figure it out as we go along and most importantly, taking our time!, this is the result you can achieve;

About 1.5 hours in and about half-way done;



So far no trouble, except the CPU 8pin was a little tight getting in the socket, but really clean so far.

Now after about three hours I'm fully done with the build and everything is really clean.




Nice! Now sure I could have sleeved everything and custom cut the PSU wires and redid the connectors, but this is a non windowed case for a friend who could care less about how pretty his machine is. This is his first modern computer after using hand me downs and donated Dells from the school district he works at. For him this is going to be like getting a Bentley after driving Datsuns all his life and he likes Datsuns.

So I hope this inspires some slowing down and thought before a build gets started. If I can do it, anybody can do it.

Oh and by the way I never have liked the way the HAF series cases have looked, but after getting my hands one and the lowest end model at that, I have to say that I'm very impressed. Good Job Cooler Master!
