Hardware Secrets Golden Award

Cooler Master has just released their most inexpensive HAF case yet, the HAF 912. With an overall looks similar to HAF 922’s, the new HAF 912 promises to blow away the competition at only USD 60. Let’s see if the new HAF 912 has the same quality of more expensive units.

The new HAF 912 resembles a lot the HAF 922, but in order to cut costs the manufacturer reduced the number of 5.25” bays from five to four and also reduced the size of the side mesh. While on the HAF 922 you can install up to two fans on the side panel, on the new HAF 912 you can only install one 120 or 140 mm fan there.

The front panel of the Cooler Master HAF 912 can be seen in Figure 3. This case has four external 5.25” bays  and you can transform any of them in an external 3.5” bay through the adapter that comes with the product. The bay covers are meshed and have air filters attached to them.

The HAF 912 comes with two USB ports and the traditional audio jacks, located on the top part of the front panel.

The reviewed case comes with one 120 mm fan (1,200 rpm, 17 dBA, model DF1202512SELN) installed on this front panel, featuring an air filter. The case supports one additional fan on its front panel, or you can replace the 120 mm fan with a 200 mm fan. The front fan that comes with HAF 912 uses a three-pin power connector, so you can install it on your motherboard in order to monitor its speed, or you can install it directly on the power supply, using the provided adapter. This fan cools down the hard drive cage or the video card, if you remove the cage (more on this later).
