Streacom FC8 Alpha Fanless Case

Cool. Clever. Compact

The Streacom FC8 Alpha fanless case is a silent media center platform that packs a punch. An awesome revision of the previous Streacom FC8 Evo with additional features, support and increased compatibility

The FC8 - Fanless & Silent

The Streacom FC8 Alpha applies direct touch passive cooling where heat is directed away from the processor via heat dispersing thermal pipes.

Acting as a heat sink the FC8 chassis absorbs the heat from the heatpipes and disperses through the chassis

  • The FC8 has no internal moving parts or fan based internal airflow.
  • Dirt, dust and other airborne particles are not attracted in to the system.
  • No fans means no noise. Deploy the FC8 Alpha to achieve a completely silent system.
