Streacom FC8 Alpha mini-ITX chassis

Conclusion

The Streacom PC8 Alpha is a cool little chassi that both can be used for a HTPC as well as a silent little regular PC. It will not of course fit for a gaming PC but other than that it should work well for a variety of roles.

The main issue with the case is selecting the correct components. Selecting a motherboard is not easy. In fact, most of the time spent with this review was hunting after a motherboard that actually would work. Of course in hindsight I should have gotten myself the kit with shorter heatpipes (MH1) which should work much better but I’m wondering if those heatpipes should not be the standard instead as i felt the majority of motherboards I looked at needed that kit.

In the end I still would recommend this case to anyone wanting to build a silent PC, as long as you are ready to spend some time selecting the proper components.

ProsCons
  • Makes it possible to create a completely silent PC
  • Comes with support for both AMD and Intel
  • Support for a lot of storage options
  • Excellent manual
  • Important to select the correct components, especially motherboard.
  • A bit more thermal paste would not be bad
