Either Way ATX or BTX Cases

BTX Accessories

Retail packaging for the BTX module

The BTX upgrade kit for the Stacker consists of two parts: an airflow tunnel and an SRM. The plastic tunnel sits at the front of the case and replaces three forward drive bays. The SR module serves to support and restrain the motherboard and the BTX thermal module.

The large BTX airflow channel replace three 5.25" drive bays.

Brief Summary

Coolermaster's Stacker shows all the other vendors how to do things right. That's why so much room is available for 5.25" drives, hard drive cages and the BTX upgrade kit. The Stacker has clearly inspired lots of imitation, but this case demonstrates that it's the granddaddy of all BTX cases. Especially interesting is the space laid out specifically for a second power supply. Coolermaster even includes a special extension cable to support redundant PSUs in its retail packaging.
