*Depending on hardware configuration, i.e. motherboard size
**As with any passive cooling solution, environmental conditions will have an impact on the performance. A TDP of 95W is only recommended when the chassis is placed in a location with adequate air flow and moderate ambient room temperature. Otherwise, TDP of 65W or lower is recommended.
Its not easy to improve on the stunning design of the original FC10, so we didn't, instead we focused on the performance and tweaked the finish of its beautiful exterior.
Internal airflow has been optimized with a revised bottom panel layout and drive tray, both of which also allow for more drives and the use of our new optical drive tray.
The expansion slots have been adjusted to accommodate dual slot cards and USB ports are now located on both side panels for easier access and balance.
As with all Alpha cases, we have improved manufacturing tolerances, introduced a new refined sandblast finish, USB3.0 is native, the power LED is now a subtle pure white, the heatpipes and mounts have been uprated, and its available with and without an optical drive opening.
What is true of the original FC10 can be said for the FC10 Alpha, its a work of art that beautiful combines form and function.
See ourSystem Build Guide for more information and advice on using our range of chassis.

*Power Supply Choice
Recommend the use of PicoPSU and external AC adapter - the case already has a mount to fix the connection for PicoPSU. Please see ourDC Power Supply page for Pico / Streacom Power Supplies - ../components/power-supplies/dc-boards-ac-adapters/

A remote receiver designed for the Streacom case is available separately here ../peripherals/home-media/remote-controls/streacom-flirc-se-universal-remote-ir-receiver/
