    it might be sexy for girls, but it looks like a flipping eyesore to me.. scarey even.

    Yep thats a direct rip off of the Stacker, however it does have features I like, namely the price - £90, also the top ventillation looks to be better than the Stacker. I don't like the top location of the usb ports etc though. Need to see a review of it cos I was gonna get a black stacker with window but this has got me thinking now.

    Hmmm, BTX too? I smell a lawsuit.

    Come on people, this sucks. It doesn't look anywhere near as stylish as the stacker, it looks downright cheap. Plus, who wants two flaps on the front of their case, even if they are for 'thermal managerment', which is a load of crap if u ask me.

    Lol, it even has a 3.5" x 3 module. The only thing I do like that the stacker couldn't do, is the reallocation of the power button.

    Anyways, with this out, I no doubt that CM will release a new version of the Stacker; and then hopefully the original Stacker will go down in price.

    Google is your friend

    Cad Central - VA8000

    Casetech - VA8000

    Tech Fever - VA8000

    DCS - VA8000

    Hope that helps, I would also add that i have not personally used any of these shops so I don't know how good they are.

    Buy a CoolerMaster Stacker instead. They're amazing!

    I'm not digging that case tbh. I got the Thermaltake Tsunami (The Wavemaster rip off) - it's actually a good case and at the time I bought it was cheaper than the Coolermaster

    Does that thermaltake rocket require batteries or does it have a molex connector?

    ROFLMAO. I once mistook one of those for a shaver. Bit hung over at the time, but it was making all the right noises
