Cooler Master HAF Stacker 915F Closer Look:
If you missed it before, let me repeat the major difference between both 915 chassis. First is the naming scheme: F stands for front mounted and R for rear mounted. Second are I/O buttons, which are installed with the 915F. Not to be confused with the 915R included with the 935. The R version does not include any I/O buttons. The standalone chassis priced at $69.99 is the 915F, which could be considered an ITX chassis outside the Stacker series. Looking at the front you have the now standard USB 3.0 ports along with a power button and audio jacks. To recap the reason for Cooler Master not to include a reset button is the belief the power button can do the same and lowers wire management. As for the rest of the chassis, you can see at the rear is an 120mm fan installed along with a PSU power outlet. The cable itself runs to the front of the chassis where the power supply will be mounted. Each side panel has the Cooler Master bee hive mesh with the ability to install up to either three 120mm fans or a 360mm radiator.
At the top is a mesh held on by Cooler Master's new rail system created for the Stacker series. Simply remove two screws from both sides and the panel slides out. Afterwards you can slide another Stacker chassis on top or slide the panel back on once the work is completed. Flip the chassis over and you will find a rubber flap for cables and water tubes to connect between cases. As explained before, this is something I think Cooler Master could improve on and maybe have an option for a completely removable bottom panel.
