Got this after wanting it for a while. Do we have any cooks in-house?
My cast iron equipment :)

The dutch ovens, fry pans and grill pan are Lodge (bottom left is the one you bought). The Kadai and dosa tava are Indian (Rock and Sai IIRC). I don't use them as much as I thought I would. These days I use carbon steel fry pans for most of my cooking. Will post another pic later.

CM690 meets its bigger brother! Thank you @Chaos :D

I tried for years to get one of these for a NAS build but by then CM had stopped making them so I ended up with the Corsair Obsidian 750D. The Stacker is such a legendary case. Some of the NAS builds in this case with multiple HDDs on HardForum were so good.

Very interested to know your plans and how you get your build into this one. Please do post updates! Good ol' retro cases.

Time to do some covid cleaning!

Before. Having 3 huge intake fans without filters is a bad idea







After. I managed to put my head in front of the heatsink and blow all dust from its fins. Pros of having such a huge empty space inside the case I guess



Added back the RGB strips after painting the case. I got a roll of thermally conductive double sided tape meant to stick LEDs so it worked out perfect.



The tape was too wide and had to do some trimming



End result :



Yeah lights were way too bright. turned them off for good :p

I need to make a cage to hold the hard drives, they'll stay on top of the PSU.

Can you elaborate on your statement?
The psu temps and vibration will kill that hdd sooner. And it not at all a good idea to simply left the hdd on psu or any fans or vibrating stuff and instead fix it in its proper bay.
+ the gpu hot air will blow directly on the hdd resulting in increased temps.
IMPO that location hdd itself is disastrous.

I have one of these in my Elite 130 file server build.


You can strip the 5.25 front fascia and attach the metal frame only for the HDDs in the empty space before the PSU.

If you can get someone to make a metal frame with those dimensions it would be far cheaper as well.

If you are hardcore about color coordination(I noticed the cable mods :p) then you can spray paint it white as well.

The PSU vibration is a major issue but the GPU is a blower style one The intake is pulling air from the top of the HDDs and dumping it outside the case.
GPU doesn't seem like a major concern here.
