Final Thoughts


You'd have to be unbelievably difficult to please not to love the CM Stacker 830. We were extremely impressed. It really does offer everything you could wish for to make the installation process not only easy, but actually enjoyable.


It's extremely versatile, supporting E-ATX, ATX, m-ATX, BTX, m-BTX and PICO-BTX motherboard standards, and the internals are such that you have a wide range options for positioning your devices.


The thought which has gone into airflow and cooling principles is unparalleled; this is arguably the best case we've seen so far to address the ongoing search for a cooler system. As it is so strongly pitched towards air cooling, however, it doesn't make a good case for water cooling buffs. For the same reason, it wouldn't be the weapon of choice for case modders either. The metalwork and chassis are very robust, and everything has been put together and positioned with an overall frame of reference in mind. This is certainly a strength, but presents a pretty inflexible option for modding.


- Pros


Exceptionally easy installation of all devices


Outstanding attention to airflow and cooling


Sleek aesthetics


- Cons


Very limited options for modding/water cooling


Space issues for large heatsinks


Not for the budget-conscious buyer
