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
Like it's fanless siblings in the Alpha range, the FC8 Alpha is crafted from 100% aluminium . It is engineered to an exceptional quality.
Comparing with it's predecessor, the Alpha top panel is now a single piece extrusion making it virtually unbreakable,
Now you can choose your FC8 Alpha in optical and optical-less models .
Removing the optical drive tray also increases the FC8 Alpha storage capacity.
The FC8 fanless case is the king of space utilization and the FC8 Alpha revision has remodeled the drive tray to push the boundaries further.
Despite the form factor the FC8 Alpha continues to deliver on performance and features with a number of expansion options.
The Streacom FC8 Alpha also supports motherboards where the CPU socket is located towards the right side of the motherboard
in this situation, where the CPU is located close to the heatsink sidepanel, the Streacom MH1 short heat pipes are required (sold separately).
