Which Stacker to buy - STC-T01 or 810 ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

i wish to buy my 2nd Stacker (i already have a STC-T01), and would like some info to help me decide.

Unfortunately there are no shops in my neighbourhood where i can look at the Stacker cases... they simply don't have them on display.

On pictures it looks like the exterior is exactly the same. Correct ?

What are the differences between the "old" STC-T01 and the 810 ?

I could only find the 810 :

1. has improved airflow ( 2 x 120mm fan in the back )

2. is more of a server case than the STC-T01 ( in what way ? )

3. has no PSU cage anymore and allows the mobo to be mounted higher

than in the STC-T01

Could you please point out the differences/improvements ?

Thanks,

Rijko

bryant someone should add to that removable motherboard tray as it's been an issue already
?

I think they removed it from the website already.

Well let me explain it again, the reason why the Stacker STC-T01 has a removable MB tray is because it's BTX compatible. The Stacker 810 DOES NOT have a removable MB tray. :D

Thanks for the reminder xstax.

wow, that's fast..

i just found the 810 comes with 3 pre-installed 4-in-3 modules.

Is that correct ?

What makes the 810 a server case, more than the STC-T01 ?

Where did you find the 810 comes with 3 x 4-in-3?

The stacker 810 support the big MB at a size of 13 x 16 which will house up to 4 x CPU. They have proper mounting screws for Nocona processors. Also the PSU slot supports redundant PSU.

http://www.directron.com/rc810ssn1.html is one of the sites that say so.

http://www.coolermaster.com/moreimages.php?LT=english&Language_s=2&p_serial=RC-810 shows 2 pics with 3 of them.

I gather the 810 comes with 1, like the old Stacker did ?

EDIT : yup, just found that on the CM site.

I will be putting the STC-T01 and the new case next to each other.

Are the external dimensions the same ?

Also the PSU slot supports redundant PSU.

The PSU dimension on the pics looks standard.

And if the case supports only 1 PSU.. errmmm... ???? redundant ?

i do not mean this post disrespectful, but with your help i think i can now make a good choice.

Based on the above info, the 810 looks identical to the STC-T01, with a few differences in design.

Looks to me that, unless one really wishes to use a 13'' x 16'' mobo, the case to use is still the 'old' STC-T01 because of the flexibility it offers.

The 810 offers a second 12cm fan in the back, but loses the crossflow fan,

the removable mobo tray, the 2nd PSU, and BTX support.

I'll go for the STC-T01 tomorrow. Thanks guys !!

Rijk
