Cooler Master HAF Stacker 915F Closer Look:
After taking a tour of the outside of this chassis, we now get to take a peek inside. Overall it looks very similar to the 915R, and in fact it's the same frame just with different front and back plates. By default a single 5.25" bay is included with mounting for two hard drives either in the middle or the side. If that does not work for you, Cooler Master has stated that many accessories will be available, including hard drive cages.
Inside the chassis is a brown box with all the necessary screws. Unfortunately, like stated for the 935, this did not come with any sort of manual, only a sheet with a QR code and YouTube channel link. The sheet itself explains the stacking feature, but more or less it's something you can figure out easily enough.
Removing the front panel was much easier than other cases, thanks to large clips on both sides. Once the front panel is removed you will see the space for a front mounted power supply and a single 5.25" bay. The I/O connectors above the bay hang over and just do not help with wire management. I do not think this is something that can be solved, so just be aware of all the cables.
Once you have removed the four screws from the rails the top panel slides off. This will be the main way to install anything other than a radiator. You have a lot of space to play with because of the total 22" length. Just be aware of potential wire issues if you are not using a modular power supply. In the middle of the chassis is support for either a traditional 3.5" hard drive or an SSD. The mounting system is based off rubber grips that slide into place. Afterwards you screw the drive into place.
Here you have it: an ugly mess of cables. Without a modular power supply, all the cables have nowhere to hide. It ultimately did not affect airflow as this chassis has a rear fan, unlike the 915R.
