Cooler Master HAF 912 Plus review

The PLUS model has an all black interior, and you know what they say... once you go black.
Bundled items are brackets for fixing 3.5" devices into the bays, a bracket for fixing a 2.5" device inside the case, brackets for securing 3.5" devices within the 5.25" bay area and a bag of screws with a good handful of cable ties for keeping things tidy within the 912 Plus.
At the top rear we spot a preinstalled 120mm fan, it has peripheral molex and 3-pin connectors. Above it, space for other fans or an LCS solution. Everything is predrilled for you to accommodate up to a 2x120mm radiator for water cooling. All you need to do is mount it.
The interior of the HAF 912 Plus is very well designed and for a mid tower, there's a lot of room to work with, even the larger components fit. For motherboard installation, the HAF 912 uses the standard motherboard stand-offs that are positioned throughout the tray to fit specific motherboard sizes. For your information, the motherboard form factor sizes supported are mATX, ATX, not EATX though.
For 3.5" storage devices such as the traditional hard drive you'll spot two cages. The top cage is detachable by removing four screws. The cage can then be rotated 90º to face the rear of the case or you can leave it out of the case altogether. To the left, the small bracket can house 2.5" storage units like SSDs. You can un-mount it and it can actually be placed on top of the lower cage.
3.5" HDD installation itself is simple, attach a mounting clip to either side and slide the drive into the unit.
We test and review the Cooler Master Eisberg 240L Prestige, a 240mm Liquid cooler that is performing nicely in a LCS kit that can actually be upgraded. Can it keep up with similar Asetek based products and their own Seidon series ? Let's find out!

We review the new Cooler Master CM Storm Scout 2 Advanced edition (Ghost White edition) chassis. And if you think it looks familiar, well it's because it is. The product we'll review today is the CM Storm Scout 2 aimed at you guys, the gamers.
