Streacom FC9 HTPC Case Review

Streacom FC9 Review

 

Up Close:  Interior 

Normally we'd split the inter section up as there's usually quite a lot to get through what with various drive bay configurations, PSU mounts and fan location.  As you can see from the images below though, there's not really a lot to talk about in here.  The FC9 is able to accept both Mini-ITX and Micro-ATX  motherboards with the size chosen having no impact on the choice of other internal components.  As we'll see when we get to the build section though you will need to be careful with regards to the location of the 24pin power connection on your boards as there's a chance of interference with the direct touch heat pipes.

Either 3x2.5" drives or 1x3.5" and 1x2.5" drives can be mounted on the drive rack.  The rack is dual sided and rotates via a hinge towards the front of the case.  Brackets are also provided to secure a slim line slot loading optical drive in place.

Peering into the front of the case with the drive rack rotated upwards we can see the limited wires extending from the front I/O and the USB2 ports.

Well that's it for the interior, nothing to see here...Move along now...  And no skipping to the conclusion.  Yes You!

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
