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.
