    Stacker Mark-S

    So after building the Parvum and posting up some picture's, some really nice people suggested for my next builds I should start a work log, well here I am so lets get started.

    First off a big thanks to my sponsors for Supplying me with all gear for this build.

    Now for the fun stuff, it all started when I was at Pax this year and I heard about this Motherboard that Asus had coming out that had a White PCB, I knew then I just had to do a build with one, so I talked to Asus and a couple of months later I had one in all its glory and it is such a beautiful thing to look at, then I contacted Cooler Master and asked if they would like to get involved and that is how the Haf Stacker came into in it, in all its massiveness and glory, its the only case I own that is bigger then my Caselabs STH10. But the Black Was never going to cut it so here it is, blue and white I still Need to do the top section but its getting there. Avexir then got in contact for send me over the Ram and I think it suits for the build Perfectly.
    I still have alot more gear on the way and all the watercooling should be here soon so I will leave it here and update as I get more work done or more shiny stuff shows up.

    Thanks for the kind replies guys.

    So today I spent some time doing some painting, here is a heap of pictures for you guys and the paint I am using and how I do it, as you can see I have a very small work space so I can only do one item at a time so waiting for one to touch dry before I can move it is a pain but its getting there.
    I did a couple of close ups for you guys so you can see how nice the paint comes out at the end.

    I also will be painting everything behind the grills blue so it comes up the same as the blues on the side panels, so going to be a lot of taping and painting this week.

    If you have any question or want anymore information just ask.

    This is the paint I am using I love it and pretty much use it for everthing.

    So the rain final stop and I final finished painting.
    Big thanks to Cooler Master Australia/New Zealand for supplying the case and giving me the chance to work on such a great product.

    I will be starting on the inside next, I already have the custom panels just got to work out how to get them in and then I will start fitting gear.

    Let me know what you think of the white and blue.
    I had some more gear show up so will post up some pictures soon.

    Update Time only small but there is a big one coming.

    Cable for the Stacker are here, what does everyone think.
    Full set will be in the Stacker soon.

    Massive Thank you to Cooler Master Australia/New Zealand for supply more gear for the Stacker Mark-S build.
    First the Cooler Master JetFlo 120mm White LED fans, I love these fans the LED lights look better then other fans because there mounted in the heads of the fan itself and not the frame.
    Cooler Master V1200 Platinum this is a beast of a unit and the packaging it comes with is so amazing I just had to show you guys the little bags for the cables are much a good idea.

    Last up the radiators I am using are XSPC EX360 nice and slim so there is room for the pump in the bottom as well.
    I am going to start getting it all in the case there will be another update very soon.

    Well the Stacker is getting very close to being finished, I am just waiting on the coolant and I will take the final photos, which will be from my new house as I am moving this weekend, so sorry for any delays.

    I almost have some paint I need to touch up but I am pretty happy with the outcome, this is for the coolermaster world series so what do you guys think.

    Big thanks to,

    Hello again everyone

    The Stacker build is finished and I have to say I had a great time doing this build, the stacker really is a great case to work with, the sabertooth Z97 MARK S is an amazing motherboard to work with and it is so beautiful, the Avexir Ram looking amazing and performances really well.

    Some of the highlights of this build,

    First off the Asus Sabertooth Z97 Mark S is the most amazing and beautiful motherboard I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

    Cooler Master Supplied the Case, Power Supply and the Fans.

    The case is well massive and I love the modular aspect of the case you can configure it anyway you want, it look amazing and its so easy to work with.

    The Cooler Master V1200 platinum is a beast and boast both power and looks and one of the best efficiency ratings there is.

    Then we have the Cooler Master Jetflo 120 white Led fans look amazing and I would use them again in a heart beat.

    The Avexir Core Series Ram is just as beautiful as the Sabertooth Mark S motherboard, they perform as good as they look and I will be using avexir ram in my next build.

    Last but not least a big shout out to Nicholas Zaluski for making me the perfect cables for the build.

    WOW :eek:, that looks awesome, cant believe that I only just stumbled on this build, the detail is amazing..... congrats on finishing one breathtaking project...

    however I have a question you might be able to answer with regard to the CM jetflow fans.. do you know what threads are embedded into the rubber mounts, as I will likely be using them in my current build, but need to have the top panel laser-cut before they will arrive...

    anyway enjoy your freshly finished toy! :D

    Nice, except too much blue on the case itself. Needs less blue or something to break the colour a bit.

    Love the interior detail. Great job.

    This probably shows my ignorance but I'm curious on the tubing. How did you get the straight tubing and perfect 90 degree bends from the cpu to the graphics card? Is it a special kind of hard plastic tubing?
