Sounds like a pretty good case, shame it was beaten with an ugly stick.

Out of all the fuglies, this is the one I like the most. If I was given a HAF 912 (as I wouldn't buy one) I'd definitely make a Dead Space case.

:D

I'm still happy with my 932.
Great to see this series evolving more and more. I like the design and the build quality is just amazing for the price.

This... this actually looks alright. I usually hate the HAF cases. Wow. And if it sells for £65 I would be all over that stuff.

Hmm, it looks interesting, I like the features but its uglier than the 922. Maybe should do a mod that takes the best of both....

Insides look good, shame about the outside not being as pretty as it could.

Agree with the previous posters. This is once again fugly as hell. Why is it (apparently) soooo hard creating cases with a bit of style...?

This will definately be my replacement for my Coolermaster Elite 335.....

It has improvements in all the right areas from my perspective, namely space for cable management behind the Mobo tray, enough case width to hold a premium CPU cooler, and enough depth to hold any top end gfx card.

None of which can be said about my current 335.......and for only £60-70.....i think its a winner.

This is a definite improvement over the earlier HAF cases. It retains the industrial look without being disjointed and busy. Its a shame that they won't be offering all versions in all territories though. I could really do with a new case as my CM Centurion is starting to show its age. It has decent performance and is very durable, but feature-wise it is lacking compared to newer models.

This is going on my "to buy" list assuming it doesn't turn out to have abysmal cooling.

I so like this ;) ;) ;)

Stupid having those different models for different parts of the world though...

I want all black and a window - but what, because I live in the UK, I suck, and can't have that?

Unimpressed.

bit-tech reader mostly don't don't like the design. But I think for this price it's still a good deal. Plus the new option especially watercooling more easily accesible is a nice move from coolermaster. usually case designeg for watercooling are the most expensive.

Nice case but why make a different version for North America, Asia, and Europe ?

The same could be asked of Xigmatek, the mesh side panelled version of the Utgard is not available in the UK I had to order mine from Germany...

Bit dissapointed about the fact there isn't USB 3.0 ports on the front like its bigger brother.

A properly powerful PSU pumping primary power in a Bit-Tech machine, a sure sinister sign showing the endtimes!

So, so much ugly.

I didn't like the look of the 932 when I first saw pics of it, but having owned one for a few months its kinda growing on me. Well the front of it is.

It looks like the slightly better looking offspring of the Antec Dark Fleet (Possibly the most butt ugly omdz-it-hit-every-tree-branch-falling-from-the-ugly-fail-tree, ever. Also looks a bit like the HAF-X which lets face it aint the the best looking case either.

The CM 690II Advanced is what I have and once you add an extra fan or 2 it not only does the same job airflow-wise as the more expensive cases...it also looks a 100X better.
