Computer Case Cooler Master Stacker STC-T01 Review

In all the excitement of upgrading the site and forum over the last couple of days I completely forgot to mention my review of Cooler Master's Stacker STC-T01 case.
Along with the style and craftsmanship we've come to expect from Cooler Master, the introduction of the CM Stacker case has reinforced their reputation for innovation. The CM Stacker gets its name from the stack of 5-1/4" drive bays in the front of the case which allows for flexibility in drive and device placement no other case can match. The most innovative feature however has to be the ability to convert the case between ATX and the new upcoming BTX standard. With the Stacker you are pretty much set for the foreseeable future.

V nice review...very detailed/thorough.

Whilst its nice to see you guys branching out to non ATI product reviews it does make me wonder when we will see a X series review? I'm interested to see what you guys think of them.

I've been trying to get one of the AIBs to send out one of their new unique cards. I'm not really interested in a pure reference card as they've already been reviewed to death by the other HW sites and imo wouldn't really generate enough traffic to make it worthwhile to review.

I'd be interested to know what the clearance would be like with a fan and radiator on the 120mm fan mount in back (all internal mind you) and how much room you'd have with a waterblock on the cpu...

Same goes for the clearance around the 120mm front mount...


I'm going to wager a guess given the pictures and say it's similar to any other atx spec case with a 120mm fan in the same possition, which would require shaving down the cpu retention brackets if your using spring clamps...


but please tell me i'm wrong


Other than that, great review... Looks like a nice case overall...
