We present to you at pcpromaroc the FC8S Alpha is the next generation of the successful Streacom FC8B without fan and offers a series of improvements that keep this case updated with design and performance. This is the "optical" version with slot for an optical drive with an ejection button positioned arbitrarily. For systems without such a unit, a variant with a continuous front without corresponding opening is also available.
The ultra-efficient heat sink is equipped with Direct-Touch heatpipes for better cooling performance. The high quality aluminum case was perfected with a fine sandblasting. On the front there are two USB 3.0 ports with internal connection. Internal changes simplify the installation of the unit and provide support for 2.5-inch and two 3.5-inch or four 2.5-inch drives. These are mounted on the tray and can be decoupled with rubber sleeves. Underneath, the motherboard will find its place. A low profile PCI card up to 230 mm in length can also be used.
