    Default Streacom FC8 EVO Fanless Chassis Review

    Introduction:
    With the growing industry of digital media and streaming devices, the world of compact designed media players and HTPCs have grown quite a bit over the last few years. While some can suffice with a simple media device like the Roku, Western Digital Media Box and even the Chrome TV, these devices can sometimes only satisfy the basic general consumers’ needs. What about those in need of a little more power and flexibility?

    This is where the growing SFF (small form factor) HTPC market comes into play. Some will say you can build an HTPC with some basic PC components and drop them into a computer case and call it a day, but who wants a junky or bulky PC tower sitting in their entertainment center looking out of place. For users like us, we like our media center to be the center of attention… so you probably want something a little more aesthetically pleasing.

    Today, we have chance to look at a uniquely designed SFF PC chassis that can operate in complete silence. We have on our test table today the Streacom FC8 Evo Fanless Chassis. Also, when we refer to it being silent, we really mean it, because the Streacom FC8 Evo case features a completely fanless*design. Perhaps its sleek aesthetics will prove to be a talking point of your entertainment center. Let’s review it and find out… *

    Before we move forward with the exciting features, let’s first talk about who Streacom is:

    History:
    Streacom was founded in 2010 by a small but experienced team that shared a common vision of producing uniquely designed and engineered computer cases. With our head office in Holland and manufacturing base in China, we entered the market by focusing on SFF and passive cooled products all made from premium grade aluminium. This combination of premium quality and compact design has established Streacom as a global player in the PC component market and earned us a reputation for making stylish well-crafted products.

    Approach:
    With a truly multinational team, we have the perfect balance of European design, Asian manufacturing and Global sales channels. This mix of influences also give us the ability to think outside of the box, pushing the design envelope, finding new and innovative solutions for our products and manufacturing processes, and importantly, fully understand and support the needs of our customers. Unlike many brands on the market, Streacom directly designs and manufactures all of its cases. Our production facilities don’t produce cases for anyone else which is one of the reasons Streacom cases are truly unique. From our design, engineering and fabrication process right trough to end user support, our years of experience ensure a product and service that is unsurpassed. *

    Great review Kenny, pretty nice little case, silent, excellent design, but I think it's overpriced ($199.99).

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Thanks!

    This was a interesting piece to review. I can't say that I would run out a buy this chassis for $199.99, but its design and concept was pretty intriguing to say the least. I wasn't happy with its thermal performance, I though it was "ok" for the set up I had, but if you can plan ahead and use the right powered TDP hardware it can be a great piece of equipment to own. Infact, its pretty damn nice looking and sleek.

    At the end of the day, if you are trying to achieve the silent operation of a HTPC, then this one hit the spot.
    If thermal performance is important to you, then you may want to reconsider.

    Definitely an interesting concept, and a really slick looking little case. But, I would be inclined to stick with the Lian Li PC09FN for a tiny build with a similar look.

    The RVZ01 although a bit larger makes for a better HTPC then either one of them

    Eh, if I was going to go that large I would just go all the way and do a Fractal Node 605. Which is what I did, actually.

    Also this silverstone (SilverStone Grandia SST-GD08B for $139.99 in NewEgg), looks pretty good too.

    nice review Kenny. Good looking case but could use some tweaking on the enternals.

    Default Re: Streacom FC8 EVO Fanless Chassis Review

    There are a lot of options out there, however the concept behind the Streacom was a little diff than the traditional mini ITX cases we have seen like the Silverstone and Lian Li. That's where I am giving Streacom credit for. They have some minor oversights that I think they need to revise or work on, but overall, they did a good job at the attempt.

    I've build many HTPCs over the last few yrs for myself and for friends and family and the best case I have used that is inexpensive and works well is the ML03B or the newer model the ML04B. Not a small case, but for someone that is looking to make there system uniform to there entertainment system this case has worked out well.

    You're right it is definitely unique and I give them credit for thinking outside the box with a fanless design, I think with a few tweaks on the inside it will be a lot better.
    Plus esthetically its really nice looking as well.

    By the way Great job on the review as well!!

    Yup, with some minor updates and revisions to better fit today's motherboard and layout it can possible be a great chassis to work with.
    They also need to revise the thermal ratings and maybe even go back to the drawing board with its heatsink and heatpipe layout and design. I think if the solid coppers were able to make direct contact with the CPU it can be potentially better at cooling, but they use a aluminum based heatsink to transfer the heat to the copper pipes which I think is the bottleneck to the cooling here on top of the layout.
