At first it seems that way but when you look deeper the engineering is purely insane. The lighter you make a plane the faster it will go. At some points in a plane the aluminum is about as think as aluminum foil. Now you may think thats a prime example of the "cheapening out" But thats engineering at its best really.

Look forward to seeing that case/computer progress and if I'm not mistaken you almost wanted to sell that case. A HAF 912 has plenty of potential for a smaller footprint as you already know, too bad we in the USA couldn't have the choice of getting at least the PLUS model that has the already blacked out interior.

I wouldnt want it. the Plus models window is horrible. a huge fan covers the GPU so all there is to see is a heatsink and hard drive cages.

My window focuses on the Gpu's which are usually the most visually vital part.

Also the Plus is painted black. I plan to paint mine white inside and get while sleeving.

So basically my case is going to look almost like a classic car. Black extrior and luxurious white inside

How ever the plus model will be great for any one who wants a great medium size case and dosnt have the money to mod it.

That window mod costed me almost $20. The LEDS and Cm 200mmfan racked up another $30.

the plus will give you all this for less then $25 more..

I'm also awaiting delivery of another case next week - the 690 II Advanced which I can't wait to get to compliment the HAF 912 I already have. I will then search for another case depending how "favorable" I feel about the 690 II will perhaps aid in making that choice. I just didn't want three of the same case - it would be too boring and just need some variety.tongue.gif:D

At;east you kept with CM.. it looks bad when three computers seem to be from 3 different companies

Ill mod your for ya. $20 for all the service and you have to pay for the rest of the expenses.

I mod for cheap because modding isnt cheap. In sleeving a PSU alone you can blow nearly $40

From an engineering standpoint it pretty much okay, lets hope those engineers come up with a "trouble-maker ejection system". LOL! But time will tell if many/most of these aircraft will be able to stay in the air with the rising fuel costs currently and even looking towards the future of those fuel costs which will effect how many people will actually fly to destinations being the fares will be too high for many. I could be proven wrong but time will tell. I just liked the state of things in which the overall feel and society's attitudes back in the day and that has been compromised and "cheapened" IMHO. Look how many don't take responsibility for their own wrongdoings these days, I could go on but will stop here.smile.gif

The Plus model doesn't have a huge side panel fan, in fact it has the same side panel as your HAF 912 came with originally. The difference in the PLUS model is the black interior (which is not good for you because you're modding yours white and that'll look great IMO) a RED 200mm fan in front and a ESata port. In fact even the Advanced model which comes with a clear window only holds a 120mm or 140mm fan and which in addition to the PLUS model comes with an additional 200mm fan on top and vented PCI covers.

Those 200mm fans can run the price up some I got my two from EBay at less than $40.00 for both shipped.

Funny you mention about me keeping with CM - that will actually be an interesting subject if I don't want any of the other model offerings for the other case I will be looking to purchase.

Pretty much any mod will come with a price tag either monetarily or time wise.biggrin.gif

I have not purchased any additional fans so my computer runs a little hot and I am forced to keep the side panel off when gaming. I am planning on buying a few high performance fans and a fan controller. Here are some pics:

What are the "a little hot" temps?smile.gif

You mentioned getting new fans and a fan controller - (no offense) but as well if I were you I would also replace that stock CPU cooler.wink.gif I'd also take that one hard drive and place it in the lower module then either take that top hard drive cage module completely out or turn it around so to get the better cooling.smile.gif

I don't use any stock CPU cooler on any of my computers and mind you I don't even overclock and that almost anything other than stock is an improvement.

I think you need Aircooling 101

Take away that larger 3.5" HDD cage and the 2.5" cage as well.

Tuck those cables in deeper, And make sure you have more fans pushing in then out.

Replace the stock cooler then check your temps again. If they are still ba then buy the fans /controllers

I love the 912! I think it is the perfect low cost mid-tower. Fits any video card combos, plenty of airflow, and great cable management. All for Sixty Bucks!

Great window StuffStuff1.


Here is my e8400 5770 crossfire rig. Even at 4.0 it runs so cool it doesn't need an aftermarket cpu cooler.

We think pretty alike. biggrin.gif

I was very particular on how I did my cable management.

With my setup it made no difference with me either taking out the 2.5"ssd module and or taking out the upper hdd module but instead turned the upper module around so not to block the fan air passage and left the 2.5"ssd alone with the same temps - mileage may vary with some other setups.tongue.gif:D

My temps are low 30's celcius (sometimes mid 30's if the ambient temps in my room are a few degrees warmer) surfing the net to middle to upper 40's celcius under heavier load as also tested using Prime95 with the same.

Here is mine, Thinking of spray painting the sliding drive fasteners to red, and maybe putting a side window aswell
