Questions for CM Stacker 83* owners

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am very well considering buying one of them, but I need to know some things.

1. What is the differance between the 830 and 382? The only differance I see is a less stylish (In my opinion) front.
2. How many fans does it come with and at what locations?
3. Overall are you happy with your case?

Now before people start asking why I'm not getting something like a Quad, heres my plan for the future.

I'll ignore the 9 Series and wait for the 10 series (Or whatever nVidia is going to call it. ) and get Intels new CPUs with the new sockets. Saving as much money as possible along the way and hopefully getting a job.

Then I'll spend it all at once on a huge upgrade.

1) There isn't much difference. I personally used the deal on Newegg (no idea if it's still there) that came with the 1000watt PSU. Good bargain if you find it.
2) I do believe it's like 2-3 fans. Don't remember exactly. However, I do suggest replacing them. You can do a whole lot better.
3) To be honest, I would rate it a 3 out of 5. Here are my issues:
-Even if it's a full tower, it doesn't feel like it. It surely could have used more space.
-Too gimmicky. It's nice and all, but way too many extra stuff.
-Cable Management nightmare. Sure you can get the basics, but if you plan to use that fan door, those are cable you can't really wrap up somewhere. Moreover, if you have a Tuniq Tower in that case, opening the door and not being carefull will bend the tuniq tower.
-HEAVY AS HELL! I can work out with that case.

Overall, the Stacker is a nice case. Don't get me wrong. However, you really have to play around with it, plan your attack, and maybe even do some mods on it in order to get yourself a nice cable management case without all the bells and whistles.

Not to mention I didn't get much time with it after USPS and UPS both had a field day with my case. Simply cashed my insurance money and got an Antec 900.

Any more questions, I'll be more than happy to answer.

Actually I do have one more question. Will it fit a Tuniq Tower 120 with or without the top left 120 fan? (But still with the other three fans on the side.) Its exactly 15.5cm from the mobo.

It comes with 2 fans, one front and 1 rear. I holds up to 9. The TT will fit with the top left fan removed. I like mine, I got it for a great deal, it holds all my WC gear inside. It is rather large so its a pain in the ass to LAN with as much as I do but oh well.

I mean it's deffinatly not the nicest case but I think it's the nicest one for this price range. The case I REALLY want is the silverstone TJ-09, but it's $300+...
