Unless it's beat all to hell that Stacker 830 is probably worth more than it cost when it was new. Compared to it, the Switch 810 and 750D are very cheaply made cases.

Youre correct that its an amazing case. Ive had it since 2007, been through 3 builds on it.

Unfortunately it's beat up really bad though. Front door pegs are broken off, motherboard tray has been dremeled up (since Cooler master is retarded and doesnt understand you NEED it cut to remove heatsinks), power button is ruined but works sometimes, top is dented a little, various scratches.

This case is only useless to me because i cant fit a radiator anywhere inside it. Mine's been externally mounted for years, but i dont have room for it anymore. Put it this way: If i bought a larger case, id actually ironically have a ton more space to fit it in my desk, because i wouldnt have a dumb radiator wasting 6 inches of space, and blocking 40% of my I/O ports (yeah i need 90 degree low profile pliers to put plug in my DVI ports).

By today's standards, as far as actual usable room for radiators, fans, and so on, this case has less mounting space than a mid tower. And its over 50lbs assembled.

I might pickup a used 840 though, it looks promising, but not sure on the build quality. Honestly, anything "nicer" than Corsair and i really dont care.

The Stacker will be a lot lighter than any modern steel case. But I agree it has no interior space what so ever without modding.

A Cooler Master ATCS 840?
