912, hmm, im guessing mid tower with features matching or beating Thermaltakes A90.

Ok interest is officially really peaked

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/cases/ ... e-future/2
For this year though, Cooler Master is sticking to its guns and launching the HAF X now and its entry-level HAF 912 in Q3 this year for just $59-69. HAF is the most popular case it sells (excluding the cheapy-cheap ones), so it's willing to see the range through.
I'm thinking for $60ish range its going to be stripped, budget HAF mid tower, but its hard to see the words HAF and budget in the same sentence. Not entirely sure what they have up their sleeve.

I noticed that Cooler Master has the HAF 912 on display here at Quakecon 2010!

Here are some exclusive shots of this $60 case that is due out next month! It looks like this case should do well on the market as it has all the usual HAF features and a much lower price tag!

They wouldn't let me get much closer than this and wouldn't let me take a look inside, so enjoy the pics that I could get! We'll have a full review on it next month.

I was getting ready to ask where is the left side shot... looks like a nice case though. Twin 120's in the front, going to assume 120's top and a rear, might be 200 in the top.. hard to tell from the angle.

For $60 this could be very popular.

I guess this replaces the CM 590 and they won't make a CM 590 II :D

Before I left Quakecon I tried to get a better shot of the left side and this is all that I could come up with:

The Cooler Master HAF 912 has been officially launched.

There is a whole web page dedicated to it now:

http://www.coolermaster-usa.com/landing/haf912/home.php


Cooler Master’s HAF 912 further enriches the HAF series by adding a compact, yet fully featured, mid-tower solution for enthusiasts and budget conscious gamers alike. Its seemingly small exterior supports a plethora of interior features such as twelve devices, high end GPU cards like the ATI Radeon HD 5970 and the NVIDIA GTX 480, large CPU coolers, two 200mm fans, and six 120mm fans. The HAF 912 embodies the rugged aesthetic and qualities of its brethren while remaining attractively priced. Its traits more closely resemble that of a mid to high-end case than that of other cases in its price range. The HAF 912 pays tribute to the legacy of HAF 932 & HAF 922 in ease of installation, high airflow, and compatibility with water cooling hardware.
