Final Thoughts

I would like to start this off by saying that there were only a couple of things I didn’t like about this case. One was how the fan filters on the 915 R are placed. When using the 915 R strictly as a rad box, having removable filters kind of becomes redundant. Even with that being said, it’s not impossible and with careful planning this can be easy. Also, We tried to install a 240mm rad in the front of the case but found out our Alphacool UT-60 240mm rad wouldn’t fit because of its top mounted ports. These ports blocked any attempt to install the radiator, so please do choose a rad that has only front in/out mounted ports for your rad. Really though, these are just nitpicks in an otherwise stellar showing! With that out of the way let’s find out what I liked most about the HAF Stacker.

The HAF Stacker is a very impressive sight to see in person when she’s all “Stacked” up. It’s a true monster (and I mean that in a good way)! Yes there are cases out there that support dual systems in one just like the HAF Stacker, but unlike those other cases, we get to decide what configuration we want to use without any major modding to the case.

Depending on your choice, you can have up to three separate systems installed in one case. We loved this case from the inside out. Everything was just easy. Installing our system and cable management was simple, fast and hassle free thanks to a well thought-out design and great placement of the routing ports. Being able to install up to 12 fans depending on your config will make cooling your system an easy task. Removing the modular HDD bays was easy and allowed us to free up room to install our pump/res.

This case was heavy with our full system install but this is to be expected from a full multi-tower case of this size and capability. Overall, the 935 Stacker is unparalleled in this multi-system role and offers tremendous value. Because of its vast array of amazing features, we are proud to award the Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935 the Pure Overclock Editors Choice Award!

    Hey there James, I also plan on watercooling the haf stacker, the possibilities are endless. I love the loop you used for the build, and I want to know what is the loop arrangement you used?
    Thanks in advance

    I just got this case my self staking it in the 945 ultra tower plan on placing my drives and power supply in the bottom 915 using the top 915 as a rad box giving me plenty of room for my GPU and res and pump in the main system cant wait to get my build started.!!!
