Up Close: HAF Stacker 935 assembled
Having reviewed each of the individual components that make up the stacker system in their own rights it's time to start bringing things together. What we have below is he HAF Stacker 935, which comprises of the main case and the 915R we looked at on pages two and three. The 935 is sold as a single unit and arrives in one box but as separated cases.
The two sections are attached to each other using the very simple Picatinny inspired system we described earlier. Linking the two cases together is simple in the extreme and although it might not look secure let us assure you that there's no danger of them coming apart what-so-ever.
We often bemoan some of the tinted acrylic covered letterbox apertures that some case manufactures think pass as windows (we're looking at you NZXT) so it's nice to have a large full width window in a case. The side panel is also available with a fan mount and mesh cut into the window, but we have a sneaking suspicion that this won't be quite as popular, mainly because it's fugly as hell. What doesn't sit quite so well is the miss match that the vented side panels of the 915R above create. Still it's clear that with the HAF series Style must sometime take a back seat to substance.
If you think the 935 looks imposing, just wait until you see the 945 we're going to build.
Popping the side panels off affords us our fist look inside the assembled 935. Don't forget that there is open access internally between the two cases allowing both cables and tubing to move freely from one case to the other.
