As I mentioned, the HAF 912 looks surprisingly like the 922 but with a shorter, more squat appearance. Only four 5¼" drive bays adorn the front panel rather than the 922's five, while the bottom portion is comprised of open mesh. A raised, vented side panel allows for 120mm or 140mm fan installation, and a similar section resides on the top that can hold either a single 200mm fan or two 120mm. Two USB ports and headphone/microphone audio jacks are placed at the top front within easy reach.
Moving around to the rear of the case we find a typical ATX layout with power supply opening located at the bottom, and a 120mm exhaust fan placed at the top. In between are rubber water cooling grommets and turned at an angle above the standard seven riser slots is an eighth slot that can be used for non-plugin devices such as fan controllers, switches or port extensions. The left side panel is held on with thumbscrews with standard screws for the opposite side.
The top front has a recessed section handy for placing small, loose objects where they won't roll off, such as the screws when you're assembling or disassembling components in the case. The bottom of the case has four rubber pedestal style feet and a vented section for the power supply. A removable mesh filter is placed over the vent to help keep dust out.
Let's move on to the interior.
