Streacom F7C ALPHA Home Theater Aluminum Chassis
***Please note: The Streacom F7C ALPHA model is no longer in production This is the last one we have in stock - F7C ALPHA-OPT Silver.
The F7C Alpha shares the same upgraded all aluminum construction and single piece extruded top panel design as its fanless brother the FC8 Alpha, but being actively cooled, we upgraded its cooling potential. It now features room for a larger 92mm side panel fan and extra headroom for larger CPU coolers*. The bottom panel vents have also been optimized to improve airflow around the motherboard, reducing overall internal temperature.
With its clean, simple lines, ability to support larger components such as 3.5" hard drive and low profile expansion card, the F7C ALPHA is perfect for building compact yet powerful systems.
*Depending on hardware configuration, i.e. hard drive or CPU cooler size.
- Air cooled mini HTPC chassis
- 100% aluminum with fine sandblast finish
- Ideal for media center system
- Compatible with Mini ITX motherboards
- New universal eject button for optical drive bay
The drive tray has been totally re-designed making it easier to install yet more versatile than ever, and now supports 2 x 3.5″* (up from just 1) while still having room for an optical drive and 2.5″ drive. If you prefer the non-optical version, there is room for an additional 2.5″ drive, taking the full capacity up to 5 x 2.5″ or 2 x 2.5″ + 2 x 3.5″ drives*. The tray also features variable drive position and orientation mounting, so you can optimally position your drives.
Streacom have a comprehensive build guide that provides general tips and suggestions on what should be considered when building in a Streacom case and how to achieve the best results.
Motherboard and CPU - The F7C is only compatible with Mini ITX motherboards. Due to the fact that the chassis is air cooled, there are no limitations regarding the TDP of the chosen CPU. The only issue to consider is the size of the CPU cooler, which may dictate the CPU to use. Due to the size of the chassis, it is only possible to install a CPU cooler no taller than 55mm (without a 3.5" drive fitted or 32mm with one installed).
Remote Control - If you are looking to take control of the PC with the use of a remote control, then look no further than the Streacom's FLIRC. It is designed to fit all Streacom chassis and will work with virtually any remote control. If you don't have a remote then you may want to consider this.
Thermal Paste - These cases are supplied with thermal paste.
