Product information - ST-FC5B Alpha Optical Fanless HTPC Aluminium Case - Black

Streacom has one mission: to design computing products and accessories that push the boundaries of what is possible when it comes to combining form, function, quality and value in a product. The company is still a relative newcomer to the market, but it draws its expertise from a team of long-established experts in the field (including Origen AE, among others). With this extensive well of knowledge to call upon, Streacom has succeeded in creating some truly special product.

The Streacom FC5S Alpha retains the design of its predecessor while adding a USB 3.0 port, a universal eject button, a shell that has been sandblasted to perfection, a new top-panel design with concealed screws and improved ventilation. The new Direct-Touch heatpipe cooling system has been added and the extra heat sinks on the left side offer significantly improved component cooling. Blending in seamlessly alongside audio equipment, it not only looks fantastic, it also offers passive CPU cooling for virtually silent operation. The premium 10mm-thick aluminium design offers space for Mini-ITX- or Micro-ATX motherboards and, thanks to the revised interior, even ATX-form factor motherboards. This case is ideal for a slim yet versatile home cinema solution.

Flat, robust, sand-blasted aluminium and stunning good looks - this case has it all, it even manages to dissipated a relatively large proportion of heat in complete silence thanks to its passive cooling. This is possible thanks to the integration of Direct-Touch heatpipes into the case itself. From a technical, perspective this case is quite remarkable.

The solid front section consists of 10mm-thick aluminium with cut-outs for the external drive as well as the power button. The streamlined aesthetic of the case means there are only a handful of openings in the housing, with cut-outs present only at the rear and roof in the form of an air vent. The sides of the case are also equipped with cooling fins - once again demonstrating quality design combined with impressive functionality. The new Alpha version offers an improved protective coating to the exterior of the case.

Within the case itself lies a removable bracket that supports a slim-style (slot-loading) drive. Hard drives or SSDs are all screwed directly into the base of the case. To separate them from the bare metal, the case includes small rubber spacers. When it comes to building a Mini-ITX system in the case, three SSDs and two 3,5" drives are supported. The motherboard is located to the side of the drives.

Additionally, this diminutive case supports an IR receiver (available separately), meaning that it is perfect for use in the living room as a small HTPC. This is where the FC5S comes into its own, due in no small part to its superb aesthetics. A Nano form-factor PSU is required.

The FC5S OD enables the use of full-height PCI cards. Although a riser card must be used in order to connect the PCI card to the motherboard. A riser card does not come included as standard and must be purchased separately.

Habe mir dieses Gehäuse für einen XBMC Mediaplayer zugelegt. Die Wahl fiel auf dieses hier, da es relativ klein ist, gerade was die Tiefe angeht, ein optisches Laufwerk sowie ein Slotblech bietet. Die passive Kühlung ist obendrein ein sehr elegantes Feature.

Zum Einsatz kommt ein Asus H87M-Pro mit einem Core i3-4330T (35W TDP) und 8GB Ram. Das Mainboard passt optimal mit den beiliegenden Heatpipes und auch der Prozessor bleibt angenehm kühl. Hier hätte es wohl ein stärkeres Modell auch getan.
Als Netzteil kommt das Pico-Netzteil aus dem Hause Streacom mit 150W zum Einsatz. Das Steckernetzteil ist allerdings nur mit 120W ausgelegt, läuft aber absolut Geräusch frei. Für die verwendeten Komponenten genügend Leistung.
Beim Einbau eine optischen Laufwerks muss man jedoch genau achten, wo man das Laufwerk festschraubt damit der Auswurfknopf richtig funktioniert. Ich habe ein Panasonic UJ265 verwendet.

Ansonsten ist das Gehäuse top verarbeitet, es gibt keine Mängel. Bedienungsanleitung ist klar verfasst und man findet sich schnell mit dem Zubehör zurecht. Auch das Anbringen der Wärmeleitpaste und die Montage der Heatpipes ging leichter als vermutet.

Was mir persönlich negativ auffiel, ist der recht hohe Preis. Der passende IR-Empfänger muss für ein paar Euro dazugekauft werden, und wenn man die USB3.0 Buchsen auch nutzen will muss hier nochmal ein Verbindungskabel gekauft werden. Dem Gehäuse liegen nur welche für USB2.0 bei.

    When all is said and done, if you want the best, you will pay for it, plain and simple. The STREACOM FC5 is hands down the best HTPC chassis I have ever personally had the pleasure of getting my hands on. As mentioned, the sheer weight of the chassis gives it an immediate feel of quality from the time you take it out of the box. The FC5 ALPHA really is a top-tier HTPC chassis and you will just have to get your hands on one to really appreciate it in all of its beauty!
