That looks kinda like that modded stacker case... if it is alot cheaper than the CM Stacker 832 then I would get the Aurora... it looks like it has everyhting you need. Though I have researched the CM 832 case and I know all of it's specs.. aspire.comptech I assume knows alot in this field and I trust his opinion to suite you well.

If it is cheaper.. I would go with his suggestion.


Oh yea... nice cat.. Lmao

That would be Oliver lol

The Aurora runs about 160 shipped.

Newegg.com - GIGABYTE 3D Aurora 570 GZ-FA1CA-ASB Black 1.0 mm Aluminum body ATX Full Tower Computer Case - Retail

And if you comfortable with buying open box this price cant be beat...

My water cooling cost me about 325 when all was said and done

But you can get quite a few of the parts a lot cheaper now.

You could probably get all the pieces for about 220 now.

What is Windows Side Panel?

Does the CM 830-832 have enough space for all the hardware + the water cooling system and easy for wire management and good air circulation since it has so many fans.

A windowed side panel is where one side of the case has a window meaning you can see into the case and view your hardware without having to open the case..... this is a drawback with the stacker cases but you can easily mod the case to have a window..


You bet it does... it is pretty darn awesome for a computer case...

i dont watercool, so i couldent tell you for sure seeing as i dont know how big it is. But, considering it has 9 total frotn bays (including hd which are in a 3.5-5.25 converter) and i use three hd's and 2 cd's, theres 4 slots left, which you could put a pump or rad in i guess. Actually, on the door, there is 4 fan slots, ive seen guys even put double big radiators on this door. With the case feet, theres a good 2-3 inches from the ground, could put one there. And, if the top comes off (i think it does) there is a spot above the fan and below the top which is decently sized. I can take some pic's if you want me too

On the windowed side panel.. you aren't just limited to 120mm / 12cm fans.. you can put 140mm / 14cm fans in there also.... HELLOOOOO wind tunnel, lol

Then you would have a miniature hurricane.

Hope mine doens't try to take off on me, lol I am getting a fan control mod which allows me to control every fan on my system via knobs on the front of my case.... pretty darn cool
