Streacom F1C EVO Mini Home Theater Aluminum Chassis
* In stock. (F1C EVO WS Silver not currently available, all other models in stock.)
Streacom's F1C EVO is the smallest chassis we offer. It will look great in any audio visual system or home theater, due to being made entirely from aluminum. The surface is sand-blasted and treated with anodic oxidation which prevents any unsightly finger-prints from ruining the look of the case.
PLEASE NOTE: The only difference between the EVO and the EVO WS chassis is that the EVO has a slot for a slot-loading optical drive, where the FC5WS does not.
The F1C EVO can accommodate a slim slot-loading optical drive and three 2.5" hard drive/SSD's, whereas the F1C EVO WS has no optical drive slot, therefore it can accommodate either three 2.5" hard drive/SSD's or one 3.5" hard drive and one 2.5" hard drive/SSD. Although it belongs to the mini-series family, the powerful storage options available make these cases more convenient and useful. With its gorgeous looks and generous specifications, the F1C EVO is a great Mini-ITX chassis.
- Air cooled mini HTPC chassis
- 100% aluminum with brushed finish
- Ideal for media center system
- Compatible with Mini ITX motherboards
Streacom has 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 F1C EVO 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 34mm.
Power Supply - We recommend using a fanless nanoPSU which can provide up to 150W of power. This is more than enough to power a CPU that has a TDP of around 65W along with suitable peripherals. It is recommended not to overload the number of peripherals; two HDDs (or one SSD and one HDD), one optical drive, a TV tuner and obviously a motherboard should not be a problem for this miniature PSU.
Optical Drive - The F1C EVO uses a new universal eject mechanism, so it will work with any slot loading laptop type of drive regardless of where the eject button is located on the front of the drive. Streacom have already sourced the perfect drives for these cases, whether you require a Blu-Ray or a DVD player. Please be aware that the F1C EVO WS does not have an optical drive slot.
Remote Control - If you are looking to take control of the PC with the use of a remote control, then look no further than Streacom's solution. It is supplied with a PCB that fits neatly behind a small circular window in the F1C. This means there are no unsightly boxes or wires running out from ports - there is just the remote!
