Cooler Master HAF Stacker System Review

Up Close:  915R interior

Both the roof and sides of the 915R are easily removed to allow unparalleled access to the interior.  In the image below right you can easily see the mounting holes for fans or rads on the inside of the side panels.

We weren't joking when we said there was a lot of access!  To help orientate, here we're looking at the rear of the case  where the motherboard and PSU would be located.  It might seem off to have a large rubber grommeted area under the motherboard area, but remember this case can take on an alternate role, doubling as either a home for rads or a HDD storage area, so these management holes will be perfect for routing cables or tubes up from the main case below

Turning the case round we're now looking at the front where there's room for three 3.5" or 2.5" drives.  Above this lies a single 5.25" bay.  All of these drive caddies can be removed if desired, with additional sets of screw holes on the case floor allowing for the relocation of HDD caddies from the main case as we'll see when we start the build section.  If you're wondering about cooling, there's actually a small 92mm fan buried in the front, but we'll get a better look at that when we strip things down.

Nice review Tom. Personally, I think the case looks pretty dreadful and I'm not sure who CM are pitching at with their modular approach. Most of us like to change our case every few years and if this is driven by a change in mobo form factor or some other reason.... most would want a new case. This looks like a jack of all trades attempt at being everything to everyone.... and pays for it.Quote

It's not going to tickle many people's fancy with it's looks ..

.. but as someone who considers looks pretty far down on the scale of case requirements - looking mostly for adaptation, options, practicality, ease of build/'monkeying around inside' - this is one heck of a range.

(even tho I'm not a case-looks person, I know when something isn't going to appeal to others)

There's some corporate uses this stack could come in useful for, and I'm keeping that in mind for suggestions. Sometimes you see something reviewed and it has features that stick in your mind when people talk to you about if and how they can have things created for them.

Good stuff. (didn't consider the pricing at all tbh)Quote
