If there is one area of the PC world that is difficult to release something unique in, it would be cases. While it might seem that the possibilities are limitless, the truth is there are a very tight set of requirements to which builders must conform. These guidelines result in manufacturers churning out case after case that are essentially the same thing. Sure they may add this plastic bit here, or convert something else to be more tool less there, but at the core they are the same. This has had both positive and negative effects. The case mod scene comes from the desire for individuality in this sea of indistinguishable parts and has resulted in some impressive builds. However, many are left building their machines within the strict confines allowed by their cases. Fortunately for those of us looking for something unique and appropriate there are still some companies thinking outside the box. Today we will take a close look at the Phanteks Enthoo Primo full tower case and see if Phanteks is one of these companies.
Today we are taking a look at a rather interesting case from Cooler Master. It is their HAF Stacker 935. What makes this case so interesting is that it is actually two cases in one. You have the HAF Stacker 925 (main compartment) which can house E-ATX, ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards. Then there is the HAF Stacker 915F which can house a Mini-ITX system or external watercooling. What is really cool about these cases is that they are stackable, hence the name HAF stacker. So with the 935 you are able to stack the 915 on the top or on the bottom of the main compartment to create the ultimate system. Cooler Master has designed these cases so you are able to route cables between the two as well. Read on as we take a look…
