hi any 1 know if you can get a all black Coolmaster CMStacker case ?
ie black side trims.
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 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
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.
photobucket > imageshack.
Just get the staacker anodised black
Or your own webspace > photobucket.
Now now ladies put the handbags down
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)
I've got the Orginal with blue trim and two windows
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.
My Stacker, gonna get another 250GB x2 this week (one for Stacker, one for HTPC)
Just joined photobucket & uploading now will post pics asap, thanks for the info guys (and gals maybe!!)

Not done it yet so will do
Ooh that is nice Tidy cables too!
LOL spend too long getting the inside looking good and forget about the ourside
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.
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.
