I don't get the "overall" hatred of this case as well.
It pretty much can handle everything the larger sized Cooler Master cases can with great cooling in a smaller footprint.
I'm in the market for two more cases to the one HAF912 I already have and to this post haven't placed a system in yet.
I'm debating which other Cooler Master case(s) to get.
Because I'd like a case with great cooling as well as the power button and the rest being on the front and not the very top makes considering other cases tough.
Other than the HAF 912 the rest of the HAF series has some of this on the very top.
The Storm Scout = top
The Storm Sniper = top
690 II = top
I want to be able to have the flexibility to place any case on top of a desk and still be able to easily access the USB's, Power Button, Reset Button and able to see the activity lights. Sure these cases are fine if they're sitting on the floor.
Also debating having a case that can house 200mm fans verses cases only able to house 120mm or 140mm fans to cooling and quietness.
Comments and or recommendations very welcomed.
