HAF 945 Fully Stripped

Cooler Master have made the HAF system remarkably easy to strip down.  Minimal use of rivets means that nearly all the major internal structures can be removed, and with cases across the range sharing identical screw hole layout said components can be re distributed so as to suite the builders needs

Ok, so you will get more than a little familiar with your favourite screw driver (be honest, you do have a favourite don't you), and you'd best get yourself a handy dandy pot to stop you losing all the screws, but we'd rather have it this way than any other.  Had Cooler Master opted for rives we'd have been gutted.

With everything off and piled up you get an excellent idea of just how modular this system is.  And if you're the sort like us that just can't help think about modding a case then knowing you can get I apart easily sure gets the juices flowing

Nice review Tom. Personally, I think the case looks pretty dreadful and I'm not sure who CM are pitching at with their modular approach. Most of us like to change our case every few years and if this is driven by a change in mobo form factor or some other reason.... most would want a new case. This looks like a jack of all trades attempt at being everything to everyone.... and pays for it.Quote

It's not going to tickle many people's fancy with it's looks ..

.. but as someone who considers looks pretty far down on the scale of case requirements - looking mostly for adaptation, options, practicality, ease of build/'monkeying around inside' - this is one heck of a range.

(even tho I'm not a case-looks person, I know when something isn't going to appeal to others)

There's some corporate uses this stack could come in useful for, and I'm keeping that in mind for suggestions. Sometimes you see something reviewed and it has features that stick in your mind when people talk to you about if and how they can have things created for them.

Good stuff. (didn't consider the pricing at all tbh)Quote
