For the 912, can you mount the drives in backwards? Do any of these cases have designs where the drive can be mounted in backwards (to hide the cables) whether it's at the 90/180 degree style? I don't mind that some have the tilts but I'd want to mount the drives in backwards regardless to hide the cable...

Problem is where the mounting holes are and whether there's room at the back of the case or in front of the intake fans (depending on where the cage is located/situated).

I hope there's a manufacturer that thought of this.

Else I need a drill! :)

Yes it can be mounted front facing where your SATA power and data cables are located on the cable management side of the case. I think you'll have to buy the top exhaust fan, just giving you a heads up. Also another issue is that the CPU cutout is useless for most 1155 boards

i own the 912 haf - so do 3 of my friends...wonder who suggested it , hehe

there is room on the backside for cable management
i have lots of room on the inside, was easy to work with. the only cable that i had issues with was the front case fan.
was just a bit short, it reached the power connector fine, just was tighter than i would have liked. in the end
does not matter only because i did switch the fan out (its now a 2nd fan on my cpu cooler)

it was already cool on the inside

that was before i installed 2 x 200 mm fans

my hard-drives are all under 30 celcius at idle. maybe get up to 35 celsius
compared to my old case...idle was already over 40 Celsius

you can mount drives backwards

you do not screw the drives into place
there are hard-drive guide rails that attach to your hard drives and then you slide your drive into the bay
and it "clicks" into place

the hard-drive cage can be turned 90 degrees as well
there is also a SSD drive bay on the bottom, which can be moved

theres also adapters for the 5 1/4 drive bays to mount other hard-drives there


really i've been very impressed by this case over all
