    Coolermaster HAF 912 Plus

    This is one of the best cases ive used. can fit any graphics card even a ATi 6990 4GB thanks to removable hard drive bays. Looks good in my opinion with decent cooling with a big 200mm red LED fan in the front and 120mm at the back. These fans make very little noise if any. 9/10

    I use one and mostly agree, but a couple of negatives: there is no noise shielding at all - all those grills mean you hear every coil squeak from the motherboard and fan rattle. And they don't include fan screws in the box of bits, and given most fans don't come with them either, it can be a pain to add extra fans.

    IMO you can't count something like noise dampening against a product when it's used in so few products (to my knowledge, only some of Fractal's, the Antec P1s and a few of NZXTs but who buys those nowadays)
    it's hardly a standard feature so you can't hold it against manufacturers to forego it, not to mention it's unnecessary cost for cases aimed at people more concerned with airflow than noise

    I'm not counting lack of noise dampening materials, I'm counting the wacking great big holes in the thing - it's mostly mesh which, compared to other cases which also don't have noise dampening, means it's a lot noisier. It's easily the noisiest case I've owned, and none of my others have had noise dampening material.

    My main PC is built with one and it's pretty amazing for the price. Lovely and fat too so unlikely to run into any spacing problems.

    I've had this case for a year now, I managed to get it for £46, got a additional fan for the top. Overall the case is very good in terms of build quality, performance and value imo.

    Just wondering, what fan did you go for in the top? I'm going to put one in mine but don't know whether to go for 1 x 200mm, 1 x 120mm or 2 x 120mm.

    Hi mate, I went with this 200mm one:

    Same as the front fan. Airflow is very good and its Surprisingly quiet.

    Cheers bud for the recommendation.
