The 912 (especially the Plus and Advanced models that come with a red 200mm front intake fan) actually looks much better in person than in pictures. And it's really practical. And it is not only sturdy, it feels sturdy... like a tank
I can fit 2 3.5' HDD's or 1 3.5 HDD + an additonal 2 2.5' SSD's/HDD's with the included 3.5' adapter + 2 2.5' SSD's/HDD's + AND a graphics card up to 300mm long (mine, for example). If you have a normal GPU (a reference card - even a GTX480 or HD5970), you can put the HDD cage back and get an additional space for 4 more HDD's.
This Antec tries to borrow some of the looks of the HAF912, but it does not have the features.
- It does not have easy access to the HDD's (with easy to use brackets) and a cage that can be rotated;
- all HDD are mounted in a difficult to remove position once PSU and GPU are installed (much better to have sideways mounted HDD's, but then it would have to have a different securing mechanism for the HDD's)
- It doesn't have vented expansion slot covers (only on HAF 912 Plus and Advanced though);
- It doesn't have pre-cut holes for water cooling with rubber protections;
- It doesn't have holes at the bottom with a dust filter so you can mount the PSU pulling air from the outside;
- It doesn't come with an internal system speaker;
- It doesn't have as many holes for wire routing to the back of the mb plate;
- The dust filters are made of sponge, which takes more time to dry up once washed. The HAF uses a thin plastic grid;
- It does not have a reset button (although it does have twice as many front USB ports).Edited by tpi2007 - 4/25/11 at 10:58pm
