The HAF 925

The 925 is a mid tower chassis that features a large windowed side panel and it shares the same material composition of the 915R.

The front panel of the case shares similarities to the 915R in design, actually they are pretty much identical except for the 925’s front panel is larger. It also bares a striking resemblance to the original HAF chassis. No real surprise there as they are in the same family.

The case contains a Power Button, Audio Jacks, two USB 2.0, and two USB 3.0 ports. No Reset Button is available. Why no reset button you ask? Cooler Master has stated that they chose not to add said button to simplify cable manage, and indicates that the Power Button can do the same function as a reset button.

To be honest we like that the case has omitted a separate button for restarting the system as we always thought that the reset button on cases for the most part were unnecessary. But that is just us. We also feel that the days of the Reset Button on enclosures maybe coming to an end, and Cooler Master is just seeing the writing on the wall. Death to the reset! Oh did we say that out loud?

The 925 showcases three 5.25 in bay drives protected by meshed bezels like the 915R, and like the bay drive mesh bezels of the 915R, they utilize a tool-less design for easy removal.

Removing the front panel reveals two mounts for 120mm fans. Fans for the front panel are not included with the case. Again Cooler Master decided not to include the fans as they have found that many users change the fans that come with cases a majority of the time anyway – so why include fans in the first place? Can’t argue with that logic as its pretty much spot on.
