The Build and Finished Product

With the front bezel of the 925 removed, you can now see the locations for the optional 120mm fans in the front of the chassis. The covers for the bays here and on the 915R are only removable from the inside, but the bezel needs to be back in place prior to installing optical drives or bay reservoirs.

With the build now completed, both sections of the 935 match nicely, and there is even a little drop panel on the 915R to take up a bit of space between them at the front. Even though the design is somewhat aggressive, I liked it out of the box, and I still like it now.

I know I did not do much to the 915R other than to make sure we powered the fan in the front. The rest of the build was fairly easy with little to nothing to complain about. All of the wiring reaches, everything fits, and it is not a flimsy piece of junk once all the weight is added in.

Out in the back, we closed off the PSU and the rear I/O on the upper section, and the motherboard, card, and PSU fill out the lower section.

There were no issues with the wiring or tending to it in the HAF Stacker 935. First we ran the chassis wiring, and then layered the PSU wiring over it, and even here, we still are able to easily slide the panel back on so we can get to the testing.

Before we get all of the panels back on the HAF Stacker 935, we went ahead and added the 915F to the bottom of the chassis. So now I have both an ATX build in the middle, and the M-ITX system in the bottom, there is still plenty of room for me to grow into water cooling or adding yet another air cooler M-ITX build into the top section.

Even though we are testing the limits of my photo booth with the tallest chassis ever to be in the booth, I really like the looks of this three piece assembly. I know there is some additional cost with this configuration, but you will be hard pressed to find anything else in this price range that does what the new HAF Stacker from Cooler Master brought to the table.

When we powered things up, there is very little noise from the HAF Stacker 935. This does make the thermals inside of the chassis suffer as it is delivered, but the idea here is to offers fully custom expandability, and the amount of noise that this chassis produces for you, is up to the choices you make when purchasing extra fans.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR - Chad Sebring

Jumping into computers for just the aspect of gaming is how it all started for me. After a solid year of gaming, I caught the overclocking bug. With overclocking comes the need for better cooling, and I have had both air and water setups to tinker with. With a few years of abusing computer parts, I looked for something new. I then decided to take my chances and try to get a review job with a online site. As an avid overclocker, I am always looking for the next leg up in RAM, cooling, as well as peripherals technology.
