Head to AnandTech to see the clash of the Titans, Tai-Chi versus The Stacker. See which one comes out on top, and why it was picked as a winner.
"We've looked at products from both of these companies for several years now, and it's apparent
that they both know what they're doing. The last several models of Thermaltake's have had
exceptional capacity for drives, but don't have quite the same "quality of construction" feel that
cases from others like Lian Li tend to have. With their latest, that's all about to change. The
Tai Chi sets a new standard for case construction and "modability", and provides the lucky few who
can afford such a unit a tremendous wealth of configuration choices including wide support for
multiple water cooling loops.
Cooler Master's last several cases, on the other hand, seem to be focused more on the realm of
exuberant venting for the sake of cooling performance, and their latest simply takes this idea and
stretches it to a new level as we're about to see. The Stacker 830 gets rid of all the
difficulties of installing hardware with a vengeance - offering effective tool-less solutions and
a multi-part design that are more numerous than what we've ever seen before."
