Up Close:  Packaging and Contents

The Streacom FC9 comes securely packaged in a sleek black box.  Inside we find the case snugged into a fabric bag and gripped between two shapped high density expanded polystyrene slabs.  Nestled into the top of the packaging lies the accessories box.

Although the Nano 150 (seen below left) supplied with the review sample won't be looked at in detail in this review, we shall be examining the functionality t provides with regards to the available internal connectivity of the FC9.  The direct touch heat pipe assembly which is key to the silent operation of the case comes packed in it's own neat little foam compartmentalised box.  It really is a thing of beauty with all of the Aluminium Billets and copper heat pipes being immaculately presented and positively oozing with sexy quality

The instructions themselves are also a cut above those usually we usually see.  Full colour and full size there should be no excuse for shoddy installation or confusion.  We have a feeling we may need to temporarily suspend our "Man card" status as at first glance the heat pipe assembly does look more than a smidge involved.

With thick extruded Aluminium and genuinely silent capabilities the FC9 from Streacom is off to a good start. Granted silence is Golden, but what of it's performance?

These silent heatpipe cases have been around for a few years now, and to me this case brings nothing new to the market. The 150W PicoPSU has been out for years, the DVD slot is irrelevant and the price tag is onerous - always has been for these types of things.

A little bit of airflow goes a long way...

For the same money you can build yourself a much more versatile machine.

ive actually been eyeing one of these for a while, ive wanted a HTPC for the tv downstairs, but always had my heart set of a Wesena case, but they stopped making them, this is the next best thing

teamed up with Haswell, seeing as they fixed the 24Hz issue, could be a awesome build
