CM Stacker 830/832

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
OK, I have loved ths case since the moment I first saw it in Maximum PC. Is it stupid for me to want a case like this? It's really expensive I know. Is it truly worth the money, especially compared to the Armor, the Gigabyte Aurora, or Full Tower Lian Lis? I just have a feeling that as much as I like this case, I may regret it down the road...

Thoughts?

It's $260, which is the same I would spend for a Lian Li or something like that. I just wanted to get a full tower case because my current case is a little cramped, and I was hoping to get better airflow in the meantime.

Get it! I spent $300 on my Lian Li case (it was the only one that could fit my mods)... so don't feel so bad.
Once again...

The Stacker 830/832s are pretty cool, but I actually like the older Stackers, too. I fell in love with these a while back, just like you have with the 830s. Personally, I find it hard to justify spending that much money on a case. On the other hand, I also see a good investment considering that you will use it for years to come. I probably will buy a case that expensive, eventually. (Maybe even that one ) But for now, it is just something I don't actually need.

I too think the case is amazing, it has looks, functionality, space, airflow which can be increased as the case is great for cable management, I do think it's expensive, but hey, to me, perfection is never cheap, and this case is near perfect, I don't think I'll need to get another one in a long time.

I have 3 Lian Li cases (V-1000, PC-S80, PC-A10) and since I got my Stacker 831 I would not buy another Lian Li. Just no comparison.

I like the CM Stacker 830 Evolution better than the standard silver and black one. The all black color and the design of that case looks better to me than the regular Stacker 830.

the stacker 830 is amazing. If you've got the money it's the only way to go.
