COOLER MASTER STF-B01-E1-GP Cross Flow Fan for CM-Stacker
COOLER MASTER STF-B01-E1-GP Cross Flow Fan for CM-Stacker

Pros: Moves alot of air across the whole board, especially cooling RAM and extra air flow for the CPU. I'm using one now for an ASUS A8NSLI-Premium board in a Cooler Master Stacker 810 and I have yet to have any heat problems

Cons: Really hard to mount to the motherboard tray. The screw holes have to be started with the screws provided.

Overall Review: Its a shame CM discontinued the Stacker 810 with dual power supply bays. Its a bullet proof case with lots of room, and being completely modular in the front makes for lots of configuration freedom.

Most Critical Review

High Hopes, Lack Luster Results

DIAMOND Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 4850PE3512V
DIAMOND Radeon HD 4850 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card 4850PE3512V

Pros: Great picture, single slot, Crossfire. Neweggs great RMA response and turn around. I submitted my RMA and had the card back in a reasonable amount of time. I always have great luck with Newegg.

Cons: I have RMA'd two of these, waiting on one to come back from Diamond, and even with a full reinstall, I still get picture distortion in World of Warcraft. Its like a kaleidoscope on my screen. Returning one b/c its still with the time period and gonna buy another 3870 and crossfire it, since I have no problems with the one I used for the past year.

Overall Review: ASUS Maximus Formula mobo, Intel Q9300, PC Power & Cooling 750 CrossfireX Certified, Corsair DDR2 - 800 2x2Gb (4 gig total). Absolutely no overclocking on any components. Maybe the Board is too old to support it.

The last case I'll ever buy

Cooler Master CM Stacker STC-T01-UWK Black/ Silver Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case
Cooler Master CM Stacker STC-T01-UWK Black/ Silver Aluminum / Steel ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: I can do near anything with this case. The modular bay system has allowed me to add more hard drive space, as well as reconfigure my front and soundblaster panels when I moved from floor mounted to desk mounted for better access. The dual power supply capability alone makes the case an incredible buy. I've actually had 2 friends buy this case after seeing mine. One is a file server, the other is a gaming machine.

Cons: Handholds would be good. This thing is a beast with all the hardware mounted in it. (Didn't use the wheels b/c I go up and down alot of stairs.)

Overall Review: The box of hard ware that comes with it... KEEP UP WITH IT. If you want to run dual PSUs you will need the connector in it to set up the bridge to power on the secondary unit. Make sure you get this unit if you want to have a removeable mobo tray.
