    Pretty hard to get hold of, looked for a bit turned nothing up- so my Stacker (black top and sides, with silver bezel) are vailable if you look around. Blue bezel version is nice also, one place has in stock (could have silver top/sides though?) It also depends if you want the older Stacker or new version.

    It's a good case, probably a bit to big though :p Need to fit more hard drives to make up for my purchase. ;) minor complaint is that you cannot add a hard disc unless you take out the entire 4 in 1 module, they should have added screw holes to the 4 in 1 so can just slide HD into the module, then thread screw through the hole. Fitting cables with the components in is easy as you have a good few inches from mobo to drives. Front drive covers could be better (if you push them in plop past the indentation on the sides) perhaps with a screw fitting instead of a clip. Still I would recommend this case, first PC was midi tower and I'm not going back to them again.

    I have just got an original blue one with a window off the bay, well pleased with it but agree with squiffy about the drives and covers. Thought about a new 810 version but wanted the Psu @ the top not bottom (rad is now sitting nicely there)
    If i could work out how to pose pics i would :eek:

    Join Photobucket (free) then upload image, and copy the IMG link to here. :) At least Photobucket doesn't have ads, unlike Imageshack.

    Imageshack does not have to have a add or a link back if you remove it. Very handy; but that is for another thread.

    Now now ladies put the handbags down :p

    I don't think an "All Black" stacker was available as the original (even the one with matt black sides had a silver front.

    Take your case apart and anodise the aluminium fron panels (or get someone else to)

    EDIT:
    I've got the Orginal with blue trim and two windows :)

    mmm roomy :)

    Great case, just having trouble with the mobo being a tad low! Probably not the cases fault though lol.

    SiriusB, fit some bicycle inner tubing inbetween the mesh and fan for the 8cm top fan, I notice it vibrates the top panel slightly. Quietend it up, and done the same for my Silverstone case fans, front case fan seems quieter now. Also used a 8cm to 12cm Akasa mould to fit a fan for the side pane.

    That fan mount you have on the bottom did you make that yourself? I have the two fans where the bottom psu can go but its abit useless there so was wondering how to get them where you have!

    It looks like a inverted Akasa 8 to 12cm mount, dunno why he's got it the other way round though.

    Yes made it, the Swiftech Rad I have didnt come with mounts for the rad so I made a plenum chamber for it out of Aluminium sheet, the rad is just bolted to the bottom of the case.

    SQUIFFY
    got the 120 x 80 on the fan to direct air up pase the AGP Card onto to the Ram Mosfets & Chipset, they seem to be cooler with it on.
