Need a new Computer Case? (HAF 922)

If you need a new computer case or perhaps buy another one for your current set-up, well here's one for you. It's not that new I say because it's out in the market for several months already but I am reviewing this computer case since it's worth a penny, and you will never regret it.

This case is the Cooler Master HAF922. HAF stands for High Air Flow.
  • This is a mid-tower case with a full tower case capability I shall say. 
  • It's got a lot of room inside, especially for the new video cards or GPU's that are coming out in the market.
  • It has a tool less design, wherein it uses thumb screws and a snap feature on their drive bays.
  • For cooling, it's got a 200mm fan in front and above the case, and a 120mm at the rear.
  • And not to mention it's high capability of having a good cable management.
