Cooler Master HAF Stacker: Introduction
Today we take a look at the Cooler Master HAF Stacker(s), which is the newest product in the HAF lineup. Cooler Master is a Taiwan-based company formed in 1992 with many years of experience under its belt. Cooler Master's product lineup range from power supplies, CPU coolers, peripherals, and computer cases. The HAF Stacker currently only has two cases in its lineup, which are the 935 full tower and 915F Mini-ITX Chassis covered in this review. Cooler Master has been known to cater towards the modding and water cooling market, and this time is no different as it built these HAF Stackers from the ground up to take advantage of that fact. Cooler Master listened to what the modding community wanted and this chassis is the outcome from trial and error. So without further delay, let's look at the box.
Cooler Master HAF Stacker: HAF 935 Closer Look
It's important to remember not everyone has things shipped to their home or know exactly what they want. When it is shipped, it's often squashed and bounced around. This is why companies need to protect their product. If a customer is checking it out at the store, the company also should provide a good deal of information on the outside. So here we have it, a simple brown box with the brand and model number in giant letters. Unfortunately this is all the box as to offer and something Cooler Master may want to address in a revision if it wants to please the store consumer. The box itself is slightly less than three feet tall and weighs 39 pounds.
Once the box is open we are able to take a peek at the packaging. The case is held in place with the standard Styrofoam blocks. In the past I tend to bring up weight issues when it comes to heavier chassis. This one is a bit heavier weighing in at 39 pounds (17.6kg) and a bit taller than usual. Cooler Master has taken a different approach by layering the Styrofoam rather than sticking it on the sides. Other than being extra tall, it came out smooth enough.
