Cooler Master introduced its latest case concept, the HAF Stacker, at PAX Prime 2013, this past weekend in Seattle, WA.
The HAF Stacker line is a true revolution (the company is more modest, calling it a mere “evolutionary computer case”) in PC chassis design. It is the first-ever commercially-available stackable case concept.
Consisting of separate case modules that can be stacked atop each other for expandability, the HAF Stacker is unlike anything outside of truly custom case designs. The company says of its concept, “The HAF Stacker is more than a collection of cases, it’s the freedom to configure a single PC or multiple PC setups in innumerable ways.”
As its name suggests, the cases in the series borrows aesthetic and design elements from the popular HAF series. Give them the capability to be stacked one atop the other, and that’s the HAF Stacker concept in a nutshell.
There are three distinct models in the HAF Stacker range: The full-tower HAF 935, which consists of two other modules, the HAF 915R and the HAF 925; the HAF 915R (rear-mounted PSU); and the HAF 915F (front-mounted PSU). While these three models can all host a single PC on its own, employing CM’s proprietary rail system (patent pending) inspired by military-style picatinny rails to attach more modules to the original PC creates expansion opportunities never before possible in a commercially-available case design.
Cooler Master says the HAF Stacker line will be available in Q4 2013. Pricing information has not yet been finalized at this time, but the company says pricing and availability may vary per region.
