    After its Cosmos SE unveiling at Gamescom, Cooler Master woke us up to a huge teaser, HAF Stacker. This upcoming case from Cooler Master will see it merge its High Air-Flow (HAF) with the iconic Stacker series, in what will be a blend of the roominess associated with Stacker series, and the cooling prowess of HAF series. Cooler Master's teaser ended with a note saying that HAF Stacker will be unveiled at the other big game expo of the month, PAX Prime, and on the 30th.

    I had the Stacker 830 was a super high quality aluminum case with high airflow.

    I expect something heavy ( stacker 830 was a heavy case) and without doubt expensive.

    This is great news but im a little concered that one of the hallmark featres of Stacker series will not be included: Removable motherboard tray. It seems most cases these days dont have it but trust me: once you go tray - you never wanna go back. Its just super convinient assembling everything while sitting comfortably and then just inserting the tray and connecting the cables.

    I currently own the Stacker 832 and its still a prime example of a roomy, well cooled and astethically pleasing computer case made from alu. I havent bought anything new because honestly i cant live without the tray. Hopefully CM proves me wrong and builds a worthy successor that has all the quality of 832 and more.

    That is not to say 832 has no faults. Its main fault is poor cable routing and by default a SECC based HDD bay that is a pain to install. I've swapped it for an alu bay that is available as an addon but not much i can do about the cable routing.

    Two of my favorite cases (series) in one? Hell yeah!

    Edit: I just hope it keeps the red/black theme, on at least on of the variants.

    Personally, I don't like it. It now really is a "Stacker". But that's just me. Pictures of the inside would've been great though. :)

    I think it's ugly. Can we get a non-HAF version of this?
