Cooler Master CMStacker 830 case review

Features

Inside the door you will find a vertical row of no less than nine (count 'em) full size drive bays, all containing neat clip on covers, that can be easily taken apart for cleaning. The problem most cases have when it comes to clip on bay covers is that they can look untidy and fall out/in with even the slightest of contact. The previous versions of the Stacker we have seen were particularly guilty of this.

The 830 has what can only be described as aluminium "wings" that swing back, clip in and retain the plastic covers solidly and neatly. This is one of our favourite features of this case, engineered to fit perfectly adding a touch of class even when the door is open. One point of note is that the door is particularly close to the floor when open and I expect it might drag across it if placed on a non-level surface or a thick piled carpet.

As mentioned before, the front door is removable and reversible needing just a cross headed screwdriver to reverse the magnets that keep the door shut and some finger pressure to release the spring loaded clips that clip into the chassis.

Included in the box were the required fittings to fit a floppy drive (front cover and side adaptors), four more drive rails allowing you to use all nine bays totally screwlessly, a base plate and IO Shield for the BTX conversion, 2 brackets to allow for a Cooler Master Crossflow Cooler to be fitted and the obligatory pack of various screws. Added in a separate box was a duct also required for the BTX configuration should you need it.
