Default Stacker 810 vs Aurora 570

I'm in the need for a new case and have myself on one of these two and wonder which you guys would get.

I'm partial to both of them just curious which you guys would choose.

Stacker 810 power supply is on the bottom and not sure how I feel about that.

I reviewed and I still own the Aurora 570. I think it is a great case to work in and it is also nice and light...which the Stacker is not.

The only thing you will need to take into account is that the stock airflow in the Aurora is absolutely atrocious. With the addition of another 120mm fan on the HD cage, you will be sitting pretty.

Personally, I think the Stacker is too heavy, too bulky and is a pain in the butt to water cool. So, I would take the Aurora.

Just have a look at that thread : Stacker SLACKER! - XtremeSystems Forums

I know there is a lot of pages but the pics says all. The case is wonderful as well as being a watercooling friendly case.

BTW: I was thinking of the STC Stacker. The 810 ain't the same thing IMO.

Just because I almost bought a 830, does the 810 still have the mobo to pci bracket problem? They were not aligned right if I remember correct.

I'm still a fan of the Aurora. I ran out tonight to check out my buddy's Stacker 810 and I much prefer the Aurora 570 from pretty much every aspect. I think you can only compare the two once you have seen them within 10 minutes of one-another.
