The gap between the cases is about an inch tall, so we have plenty of room for this Corsair H100i CPU cooler to blow exhaust out the top of the larger case.
To find out, we had three distinctly different unconventional cases delivered to our Lab: the Cooler Master HAF Stacker 935, the In Win D-Frame, and the Corsair Carbide Air 540 that are pictured here.
The larger case ships with two 120mm intake fans in the front, and one 140mm exhaust in the rear.
You can swap drive cages freely between the big case and the small cases; they attach with four standard screws.
The stock 915 comes with a front 92mm fan, and the mid-tower ships with dual 120mm intake fans and one 140mm rear exhaust fan.
Cooler Master recommends quick-disconnect couplings for such a setup, so that the two cases can easily detach from each other even after the loop is installed.
While you’re free to arrange your Stacker cases in any order, Cooler Master recommends that you not add more than two smaller 915 cases to the basic 935 setup, lest the tower tip over.
Our combo of choice, pictured for your amusement, is a 935 and a 915, which Cooler Master sells as the "945." For comparison, a Corsair 900D is about 27 inches tall, and the inside of a Cooler Master Cosmos II is about 22 inches tall (the external handles add some extra height).
The mid-tower’s intake fans can fit inside the front bezel, to maximize room inside the case.

Speaking of airflow, the front and top of the case both support up to 360mm cooling radiators (or just normal fans) and the rear supports up to a 140mm radiator, in some configurations.
Stock, the 760T ships with 3x140mm fans (AF140L) on an included fan controller (12V & 7V settings); aftermarket air cooling options include a total of 3x140mm top fans, 2x140mm front fans, 1x140mm rear exhaust, and 1x120mm bottom-mounted fan.
Most of the major manufacturers have some sort of flagship case staking claim to the enthusiast market, and this year’s coverage extends to Corsair, Antec, Cooler Master, and Thermaltake.
Almost partially resembling Corsair’s Carbide Air 540—a case we jokingly called a ‘double-wide’—Cooler Master’s HAF XC features a massive, wrapping glass side panel with extra width for unique system installation.
Other than Thermaltake’s T81 — obviously gunning for a cheaper 900D market — Antec’s Nineteen Hundred ships with competitive drive support, concealing panels, basic padding for vibration and sound absorption, and plenty of space.
Like last year’s RV-04, this year’s NZXT H440 is our true innovator in the gaming case market.
