    It was a real struggle to get hold of one, so despite being allocated stock I'm a little nervous it won't actually turn up!

    I didn't think they be that hard to get seeing as OcUk have a load of them, but then I assume you won't be getting yours from there.

    No I went for whichever of SCAN or Ebuyer got stock first. Looks like Ebuyer got additional stock in after my order anyway, so should be fine. I think there's a bit of a premium for the case at the moment - it should be around £60 really for the level it's aiming at, but I couldn't find anything else that size that met my requirements.

    Wish I had a spare £60 to grab one, from all the pics I've seen it looks ideal, if perhaps looking like a bit of a brute front on.

    I was going to say ebuyer have them in stock http://www.ebuyer.com/product/239757

    The £70 price tag is probably correct the basic HAF 912 is on newegg for $60 and atm they are only releasing the more expensive plus version over here

    See thats the problem if it was bang on £60 I'd go for it when I had the funds, but when you consider for a fiver more I could grab a Fractal case which is worth the extra money over the CM.

    Yes please

    @Behemoth, well the HAF 912 compared to the R3, is smaller in length, although slightly taller and nearly 25mm wider (that might not seem much but most cases don't go over 210mm wide and the 912 is a fully 230mm wide)
    The removable drive cage means you could fit a 15" graphics card in there.
    Fewer hard drive bays in the 912 (6 vs 8) but 4x 5.25" bays compared to the two of the R3
    The 912 has the potential for higher capacity air flow however the R3 has lower acoustics.
    The 912 has a more aggressive industrial look, where the R3 is a more simplistic and elegant look
    The R3 is also £10 more at £80

    Both good cases but filling slightly different rolls with looks to appeal to different people.

    Re: Which Case? PC-K62/3 CM HAF 922 CM 690 II

    Hmm well I think I'll end up going with the as it's a very close match with respect to its cooling capability with my current Antec 300.

    The R2/R3 range of cases are more geared to water cooling. Something I never intend to bother with unless I had a few grand to spare.

    Re: Which Case? PC-K62/3 CM HAF 922 CM 690 II

    Actually not so much, the CM 690 II is definately aimed for it, the HAF 912 has the option for a dual 120 rad in the top.
    The R2/R3 top fan slots do not have the correct spaceing to fit a dual 120 rad without modding and the drive cages are too close to the front to fit a rad and fans there without modding.
    Still it's a good case, esp for a very quiet system and they've taken the basic look of the p180 and made it their own, which is great as antec seems to be moving away from it.

    Re: Which Case? PC-K62/3 CM HAF 922 CM 690 II

    I've always liked the P180 case. I guess thats why I was drawn to the R2/R3 case
