Hi,
I have a CM Stacker STC-T01 Computer case.

I was thinking of selling this off and getting myself a CM 832 (considering that is the only 'good' case available here).

I have a Tuniq Tower on my Q6600. I have heard of clearance issues between some scythe hsf and the Case. (something to do with the fan frame).

Wanted to ask if someone has any exp. fitting a tuniq tower in CM 832 and is it worth an upgrade over a STC-T01.

thanks!

I have a Thermalright 120 and it's too tall to use the fan frame with fan. If I pull that top left fan out I can fit the fan frame with the 3 other fans. Although I find I have better temps without the fan frame altogether. :wtf:

As good as my Stacker is, the one you have looks pretty darn good too. The only reason I got this over other cases is it looks so badass! :)

How did you arrange your fans, like intake, exhaust, etc? If you use two as intake, and the other two as exhaust, it will create too much turbulance and screw up the airflow. Best result is set them all to intake.

All 3 were intake. 4th wouldn't fit due to Ultra 120.

I can't explain it. But my idle temp went from 30C to 35-40C :(

Same here. With the side fans blowing in and all the others sucking out the temp were higher than my current arrangement of in at the front and out the back and top (with no side fans).
