Specifications, Availability and Pricing
Here is where we get a bit technical and things start to get interesting. Inside of the box, you get the HAF Stacker 935. Inside you will find two separate cases. First is the larger section of the design that is named the 925, and is the only section of the HAF 935 that will not be available outside of this packaging. The second components of the chassis is the 915R, a similar design to the 915F we just looked at, but the PSU is in the back of this design, and there are three hard drive bays added into the 915R where the PSU in the 915F used to reside. Since we are sticking with the 915R so far, continuing with its offerings, you get a single ODD bay, room for up to four storage drives, offers room for a Mini-ITX motherboard, and also has the same side panels we saw in the 915R.
Inside of the 925 you are given three ODD bays, six storage bays in removable racks, and a hidden 2.5" drive post behind the motherboard tray. On the motherboard tray, there is room for EATX, ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards, five wiring holes with grommets, plenty of tie points, and a huge CPU access hole. At the back of the 925, you are offered a 140mm fan to exhaust the chassis, and a stack of eight expansions slots, with a plus one slot turned vertically. The power supply mounts in the bottom of the 925, and there is a removable dust filter that slides out the back of the chassis.
Cooling is a bit strange is a chassis from the HAF series. Every chassis to release before this offered huge amounts of air flow out of the box, and with the HAF Stacker, there is plenty of ability for massive amounts of air flow, but it is up to the user to provide in this design. Considering both components in the HAF Stacker 935, it has a 92mm fan placed in the front of the 915R to cool that section. The sides of the 915R have room for three 120mm fans in each panel, or you can choose a pair of 140mm fan for each. In the 925 section of the chassis, you can install a pair of 120mm fans to the front, you can install a pair of them at the top, but the only fan provided here is the 140mm at the back. If you plan to water cool in this chassis, conceivably, you could easily install four radiators inside of the Stacker 935. If you planned to add another 915 to the mix, you can add another pair of radiators to that total.
Just like when we discussed the pricing on the 915F being a really great deal, the HAF Stacker 935 follows that trend with an MSRP of $169.99. So in essence you are getting the 915R for $69.99, and then the 925 comes in at $100, which is a really good price point for any feature rich mid-tower or fairly descent full-tower offerings. The one thing that takes the 925 above any other normal chassis design is that it is designed to be added on to as the user needs more room, or wants to simplify the office setup all-in-one box.
Cooler Master definitely is delivering the first ever Mod-Tower chassis, and I can see many enthusiasts gravitating to this design, and also this is easily a modders paradise for some fully equipped outstanding systems we are seeing these days.
