To give you an idea of the size of the CM Stacker 830 Evo I place it next to a 2L Coke bottle; compared to the Antec 900 Mid-size tower, you can clearly see that the Stacker is a full tower.Antec Nine Hunderd Gaming Case
Coolermaster CM Stacker 830 Evolution
The 83x series has a unique design, with curved surfaces and ridges in black anodized aluminum, the design portrays a “bad-ass” look and once you’ve seen it up close in person you’ll most likely agree, pictures alone don’t do justice to the overall design and structure.
Although aluminum is used throughout the building process this case is not a lightweight, carrying around to LAN parties will be a challenge, but CM has a solution for that by means of carrying handles and optional “wheels”.
The front door is also made of brushed aluminum and has a very solid feel, the hinges can be unhooked and the position swapped around, allowing you to choose how the door will swing open. A pair of magnets keeps the door closed and it swivels very smoothly on its hinges, you only need to push it very slightly for the door to close shut. With the door open you can see the 9 5.25” drive bays, each covered by a plastic mesh faceplate.
A closer look at the top reveals the power/reset button, HDD activity LED, 4 USB ports, 1 Firewire and Audio connections.
When powered on the custom CM logo lights up blue.
