Streacom FC5 Alpha Fanless Chassis Review

Cases & PSU/Cases by petervandamned @ 2015-10-23

The FC5A case from Streacom has a super thin and slick design, offering a completely silent system for daily work but much better to get integrated in your home cinema systems. Has a highly professional look so it can be placed in any living room.

Product Features:

Following in its predecessors footsteps with the same minimalist styling, the FC5 Alpha brings even more refinement to this timeless sleek design.

At the heart of these improvements is the updated bottom panel which is not only more robust but has been redesigned to optimize airflow, reducing internal temperatures. Motherboard size and drive storage options also benefit from this new design, with the FC5 Alpha now accommodating an additional 2 x 2.5″ drives and a full size motherboard*.
USB ports are now located on both sides of the case for easier access and balance.

As with all Alpha cases, the heatpipes and mounts have been upgraded, USB3.0 is native and the power LED is now a subtle pure white.

With its super thin 55m profile, premium AV design featuring a 10mm thick precision CNC’d front panel, the FC5 Alpha perfectly compliments any high end home theater setup.
