Form meets function to create Cooler Master's Stacker RC-830. This monolithic tower supports an outstanding nine external drive bays, each capable of holding either a 5.25" or 3.5" drive. These drives will have nothing to fear, either, sitting safely behind a sculpted door. The ever important USB ports are taken seriously, too with four set up front, yet separated to keep from getting in each others way.

Internally this case is just as business like. The hard drives are well represented with four 3.5" bays. The cooling of this tower is where it truly shines however. It comes with two 120mm fans for use in the front and back, and then goes overboard with slots for an additional four 120mm fans on each side. When used in combination, there is very little that these fans can’t keep cool. The optional fan on top is an after thought that only the most die hard of users will ever need.

Then to make installation and maintenance nearly an automatic action, the design geniuses made all aspects of this case tool free. The coupled that with excellent cable management, and a removable motherboard tray and hard drive cage. Make it easy on yourself. Get a case that will support your frequent "tweaks" and changes without skinning your knuckles or cramping your hands. This case will leave your hands healthy for manipulating that keyboard!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Case

Pros: I want to start off by saying it's a great case, lots of room inside not that you need to worry about due to it having a slide out tray to mount to mobo and anything else that goes along with it. Has a great design for air flow although im going liquid cooling soon. I know that this case is discontinued but if you can find it at some other site for sale you would regret it.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Asus P6X58D-E

5 out of 5 eggsBreathe Taking

Pros: The best built case I have every seen, what is most amazing is aluminium make this case breathe taking just by looking at it.

- Aluminium, generally about 2mm thick, some parts are a bit thicker
- Removable tray, come off very handy.
- Fan mounting brackets (x5) come with case
- Attachable wheels
- Very good air flow
- Can attach up to 9 120mm fans
- Big room inside fits big coolers and water cool capable
- MOD potential

Cons: I have used this case for a while, mostly gaming and overclocking, the biggest problem I can think about is noise, which came from 7 Fans in the case, five of them are 2000 rpm.

- Big package, don't let them ship it to your company or school, you will have trouble carry it back home
- When the package came, 16 screws used for tighten wheels 10 were missing, found all of them in side the case scattered here and there.
- Mounting HDD is not easy job
- Removable tray doesn't have a back whole for CPU cooler back plate.
- Newegg's picture is little bit old, the actual case come with a removable tray with a cable sorting whole and water pipe wholes on the back

Other Thoughts: I love this case for its beauty and performance, although it is a pretty old case, the design is still very superior. I'm a gamer and overclocking my pc all the time, the case offered me a cool platform.

i7 920
Megahelams rev.b
X58a UD7
GTX 260 oc
WD black 1TB
Corsair hx850

I have 2 CM 90CFM fans on the front, two on the CPU HS, one on the backplate, top intake is the original blue LED fan plus the original backplate fan mounted on the bracket for GPU.

(room =20c)CPU cores was able to run under 60c @4.0ghz. GPU never went above 60c and under 40c when idle. HDD stay under 30c.

However, I have to say that again, it was loud, I was fine with it, and used a "Kaze Server" fan controller, which you can get from Newegg and helped the noise control. The case was made for overclockers, if you don't plan overclocking your pc but want aluminium , I suggest you get cosmos which has noise prevention build in.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat case for SLI and big video cards

Pros: I have a CM 830 Stacker and love it so much that I am reusing it for my upgraded gaming system. It really may be the pinnacle of air cooling. It is great to work in if you have SLI or Crossfire with big cards. I have to fit in an ATI 5970 (enormous card) and it looks like it will be no problem at all. I also discovered that you can remove the wire mesh vent at the bottom of the case and find the pre-drilled mounting holes for two more 120mm fans. For the big size, it is not as heavy as one thinks it would be due to the aluminum construction. Still, you will want to use the casters.

Cons: The hard drive cage is a bit weirdly engineered. It works, but I like the front-removable cages found in my Antec 902. Some people may also find the size of this BIG case hard to take.

Other Thoughts: There are little engineering touches that really impress you the more you work with the case. The slide-out motherboard tray is nice for the initial installation of the motherboard. If you like to upgrade a lot, the ease of taking the case apart might be another plus.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful quality

Pros: Perfect blend of Class, Beauty,and Quality. Plenty of room for expansion. Big, bold, aggressive and very classy looking. Removable motherboard tray. I Love this case! One of the Best cases out there.
Top of the line PC case for those who only want the best. This thing screams look at me. If you are serious about buliding a top of the line PC and if you have the funds BUY IT, you WON'T be dissapointed.

Cons: Some say its expensive, but you get what you pay for. This case is for people who want the top of the line, otherwise go get an NZXT brand case or some other cheaply made case.

Other Thoughts: I have been looking for a case like this for a long time, a case that looks classy yet has aggressive syling,and great build quality is rare indeed,but this case has all of that and more. Truely a perfect blend. The brushed aluminum looks very classy. Packed with features only found on premium cases like this. When your ready to get serious about your PC, get this Cooler Master Stacker 830. I also love the power button. Dual I/O panels. Room for up to nine fans. Removable motherboard tray. Cable management. I am very pleased with my choice, finally the search is over. A lot of time has went into designing this case and it shows.

I came across a review by bit-tech and they refer to this as the perfect case and I agree 100%!

Newegg has made me a customer for life with their fast shipping and great unbeatable customer service.

4 out of 5 eggsHuge Case!

Pros: Its HUGE! Its Beautiful for the most part and it is very very easy to add the media drives, Fans and Mother Board. Swing Door is very good and it is a quiet case so far. More USB ports then you need. HD on top looks so cool!

Cons: Blue lights are not so good looking. Plastic HD light cover at the top will pop out and be lost forever if you mistake it for a button. I don't like installing the HD's as much as I did on the last case. not really a lot of fan size options but 120mm are the best I guess.

Other Thoughts: If you can get it for 129 with free shipping like I did its a no brainier. If it goes back to normal price it is something u must wiegh and measure against others at that cost.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome case

Pros: Of all the systems I've built this has to be the best case ever. Very solid construction, lots of options, and it looks great.

Cons: Not really a con but due to the rugged construction this thing is HEAVY, ups had it listed as 37lbs on the shipping label.
Too big to fit on the desk, but I guess that's a con for the furniture company that makes my desk.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Quality

Pros: The quality is better than most full tower cases I have seen, such as the all aluminum body and frame. The design is absolutely beautiful.

Cons: The tool less frame lacks compared to other full tower cases. No e-sata. But the pure beauty of the cases makes up for this.

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a full tower see through case to build, this is the one to get. I've owned a lot of plastic see through cases and a like the mesh metal a lot better than clear plastic on the sides of the pc.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Box

Pros: The amount of fans you can put in this thing is wonderful. Space is extremely adequate. What the spec sheet says is true. Assembly was easy. You get plenty of extra parts. All around a great case.

Cons: I wish it had more HDD space. Thats just me. Definitely nothing to knock an egg off for.

Other Thoughts: I would buy another one.

5 out of 5 eggsCooler Master Stacker 830

Pros: This case is a beast, I've used it for my newest PC build and for a friends build and let me tell you this thing handles what you got then some. simple to work with and keeps the PC cool with 7 installed fans and the case keeps things quite. It's a must for people that need the flexibility to go fan crazy of water cooled.

Cons: Like I said this thing is a beast and is big, make sure to read the dimensions. Has blue LEDs for power/reset buttons wish they were red but can't dock an egg too ggod of a case.

4 out of 5 eggsBeautiful case

Pros: great design and look.Great capacity for fans. Lots of space. Very nice door to conceal drives and fans. Tooless design for optical drives, nice touch. I got stacker 830 Se instead, don't know the difference. Still had raptor bracket. Most importantly...Love the handles! Lots of negatives , but coolest looking case ever.

Cons: Fans included are worthless. Xigmatek s1283 will not work with side panel at all if using on amd board, because of how it has to sit horizontal. 4 in 3 module is cumbersome, used 3.5 to 5.25 bracket that I had instead. More plastic than there should be, but seems sturdy enough. Lastly, the psu bracket didn't fit correctly with pc power and cooling quad black 750. Had to scrape off plastic near cord jack to get it to fit.

Other Thoughts: You can use the side panel brackets to mount fans in front. You then screw whatever fans you want into the side panel itself. I'm going to get 140mm. Get a 92mm cpu cooler or smaller to clear side panel with fans.
