Full Disclosure: Cooler Master provided the product samples used in this article.

Cooler Master’s HAF Stacker 935 modular case system is an innovative new entry in the computer case market. Enthusiasts can configure the multiple, stackable “modules” of this system to build the ideal enclosure for their system (or systems). Whether it’s providing storage for water cooling or extra drives, or just housing multiple systems in a compact space, the HAF Stacker system is versatile enough to handle pretty much anything you can throw at it.

Cooler Master calls these new cases a mod tower expandable system and says they’re a better case ecosystem.

Old-timers might remember that this isn’t Cooler Master’s first “Stacker” case; the name has previously graced the Stacker 810 and more recent Stacker 832. Both of these giant aluminum cases had some degree of modularity in their internal components, but neither was “stackable”.

So how is this new Stacker 935 system better than more ordinary cases? I’ll get into that in this review.
