Streacom FC8 ALPHA Black Fanless Home Theatre Aluminium Chassis

(£147.60 inc VAT)
Short description:
Mini ITX
Includes Passive Cooler

The FC8 ALPHA is the next iteration of our acclaimed FC8 fanless chassis and with it comes a host of improvements and refinements that keeps this chassis on the cutting edge of design and performance.

The ultra-efficient heatsink has now been paired with our new direct touch heatpipes for even better cooling performance. The high grade aluminium extrusion is now finished with a fine sandblast texture and the front USB ports have been upgraded to support USB3.0 (cable now included). Internal changes include easier drive assembly, support for 2 x 3.5" drives and a universal optical drive eject button for added compatibility.

Just like its predecessor, the FC8 ALPHA is a perfect building block for any silent PC solution.See Streacom's System Build Guide for more information and advice on using the 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/

*Optional Remote Control

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

*Cooling System

Heatpipe Direct Touch 4 Pipes – Recommended CPU TDP 65W, Max TDP 95W For LGA115x / AM1, AM2/3, FM1/2 Socket CPU. Avoid motherboards with tall heatsinks to the right side of the CPU socket. 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

Note that thermal paste is not included - please purchase this separately. eg Arctic Silver 5
