Installing the System Into the HAF 912
Cooler Master provides all the drive rails and hardware needed to mount your parts into the case. The 5.25” to 3.5” is steel, and the 3.5” to dual 2.5” bay adaptor is plastic.
Installation was super easy and quick, so much so I forgot to take images as I went. With the upper drive cage in place the space for the video card in a little tight.
Removed, there is tons of room for even the longest cards. With the drive cage removed you have 390mm or 15.4" of space to install a video card! With the drive cage installed you have just 270mm or 10.6" of space for a video card before it starts to hit the 3.5" drive cage.
I even added a pair of 120mm fans because I had to see how they would fit. I can now see why Cooler Master says to go external with your radiator. The rear exhaust fan hangs past the upper 120mm fan just enough to cause an issue with a radiator. So that fan would need to be moved to the side panel or removed to have an internally mounted radiator. You might get away with a slim 120mm fan like the Scythe SY1212SL12L that is only 12mm thick, a little planning will be needed.
There was plenty of room to run the wires behind the motherboard tray. There were also numerous places to tie wires up as well. The CPU cut out area was nice as well; it completely clears the backing plate.
