Excerpt: Introduction It wasn't all that long ago when I viewed Cooler Master as something of a wannabe: a company following closely on the design and features of the more popular companies such as Antec, KingWin, and Lian-Li but never really measuring up. Things have changed over the last couple of years though with products like the awesome award-winning WaveMaster case under their belt.
Conclusion: Coolermaster Stacker is a ideal case for any server casing and hardcore users. The main enemy of this casing is the weight, so it is definitely not a ideal case for a LAN Party goer. Price is reasonable since it is a server case and the exterior is aluminum. Hope the next version of Stacker can eliminate the cons below.
Pros: * Support BTX motherboard
* Support Dual Power supply
* Wheel included
* Good quality fan mesh
* Rock solid
* Good airflow design
* 11* 5.25ï¿½ drive
* Ideal case for watercooling
* Price is reasonable
* Motherboard tray can be removed
Cons: * Heavy
* Problem with faceplates installation (for the 1st few times only)
* Only one 3.5ï¿½ drive supported
* Mounting rail not quite effective
* Quality of the aluminum can be improved
* No guide for floppy drive installation
* No case lock
Conclusion: At a time when the digital living ideology is strongly being put across to many consumers, the Cooler Master CM Stacker couldn't have come at a better timing. Of course the CM Stacker won't be the front-end machine interfacing the various connectivity and output options, but it was designed to be a home server at the back-end of this digital living concept.
Summary: Cooler Master Stacker er et kabinett for de mer spesielt
interesserte, og da fortrinnsvis de med
store krav til god innvendig plass i kabinetter. Kabinettet er stort og tungt,
men har da også masse innvendig diskplass. Hvis man
er ute etter et kabinett med spesielt god plass og gode kjølemuligheter
vil Stacker være et alternativ. Vi likte hardiskmodulene svært godt. Harddiskene kan
dermed plasseres hvor man vil i kabinettet.
