New case wit bottom mounted PSU + must meet other criteria

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

Before you jump in to suggesting cases, I have already investigated, and the following cases DO NOT fullfill my requirements:

- NZXT BETA EVO
- Coolermaster Elite 430 Black
- Nox Coolbay Black
- Antec Three Hundred
- NOX Raiden
- Xigmatek Midgard
- LANCOOL PC-K58 BLACK
- COOLERMASTER DOMINATOR 690 II
- Nox Blaze
- NZXT LEXA S
- COOLERMASTER DOMINATOR 690 II WINDOW
- NOX HUMMER
- NZXT TEMPEST EVO
- THERMALTAKE ELEMENT S


The only case I have found around € 100 - the price I'm willing to pay - that does is the Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus

The main reason I'm looking for a new case is the fact my current case does not have a bottom mounted PSU design. As it is my system's temperatures (CPU/GPU/HDD's) are not as good as before because my current PSU is not sucking hot air outside when not under load (it's the Corsair AX750, whose fan does not spin while under light load).


The Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus costs € 89,90 and has:

- bottom mounted PSU design with dust filter;
- cable management behind the motherboard ;
- a top mounted optional fan, which will push hot air out of the case;
- easy installation of HDD's with an HDD cage in 180º position and with mounting brackets, just like the Triton 180 I have now;
- I need to have a multi-card reader installed and this is one of the few cases that has a 3 1/4 slot with that possibility;
- I want power buttons and USB and audio ports on the front panel and not facing upwards as:

1.that is not only impractical as I have the computer on a table next to me and ports facing upwards would result in it not being easy to access them while sitting at the desk;

2. The area where I live has a lot of dust and it's not really helping to have upwards facing ports;

- Oh, and most important too: it does not have a door. I don't like doors, because normally you can't get good quality and good looking doors (and what is behind them) at this price, and secondly because they are impractical and third because they almost always open the wrong way around for me (I have the PC to my left and the doors normally open to the right)

I may search other stores for availability of different models if some of you suggests some that fulfills the requisites above.


Thanks in advance!

Thanks... but you didn't read what I wrote, did you ?

Those two cases are on the list I made, and they DO NOT MEET the REQUISITES.
