Streacom FC8 Series Fanless Home Theatre Aluminium Chassis
The Streacom FC8 offers the chance to build a silent media centre PC in a tiny package.
You will be proud to put on show the STREACOM FC8 in your home. With its unique, specially designed fanless CPU cooling system, the STREACOM FC8 offers silent fanless cooling. The thick brushed aluminium cabinet is beautiful and will look at home in any audio visual system or home theatre.
- Fully fanless HTPC chassis
- 100% aluminium with brushed finish
- Ideal for media centre system
- Compatible with Mini ITX motherboards
- Supplied with heatpiped CPU cooler
The chassis is supplied with a fanless CPU cooler that is designed to passively cool a CPU that have a Thermal Design Power (TDP) of 65W or lower. The chassis can do this with the use of heatpipes that attach to the CPU cooler and then onto either side of the chassis which features large aluminium heatsinks that naturally dissipate the heat - providing silent cooling for the CPU!
Motherboard and CPU - The FC8 is only compatible with Mini ITX motherboards such as the Gigabyte GA-H61N-USB3. Depending which motherboard you opt for will determine which CPU to use. The case is capable of cooling virtually all CPUs that have a TDP of 65W or lower.
Streacom has recently made a list of compatible motherboards for all their chassis. Please follow this link for more information.
CPU - The cooling solution supplied with the FC8 has been designed to dissipate heat generated by a CPU that does not exceed 65W TDP (Thermal Design Power). The following is a list of recent CPU’s that produce 65W or lower; AMD Socket FM1 A4-3300, A4-3400, A6-3500, A6-3600, A6-3800 and all AMD Mobile Fusion APUs. Intel Socket 1155 - All i3 CPUs, i5 2390T, 2400S, 2404S, 2500S, 2500T, i7 2600S and virtually all Intel Mobile Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs.
Power Supply - We recommend using a fanless picoPSU which can provide up to 160W of power. This is more than enough to power a CPU that has a TDP of 65W along with suitable peripherals. It is recommended not to overload the number of peripherals; two HDDs (or one SSD and one HDD), one optical drive, a TV tuner and obviously a motherboard should not be a problem for this miniature PSU.
Optical Drive - The FC8 is compatible only with optical drives that have the eject button on the left hand side. Luckily, Streacom have sourced the perfect drives, whether you require a Blu-Ray or a DVD player.
Remote Control - If you are looking to take control of the PC with the use of a remote control, then look no further than Streacom’s solution. It is supplied with a PCB that fits neatly behind a small circular window in the FC8. This means there are no unsightly boxes or wires running out from ports - there is just the remote!

“Excellent service and superb products”
“It was an absolute pleasure to buy my new machine from Quiet PC. They were very knowledgeable, helpful and quick to reply when I was deciding on a system, and went above and beyond to adjust the specs and accelerate the build when (through no fault of their own) a part on order’s delivery date kept slipping. Today, my silent i9-9900k monster arrived in Denmark in excellent shape, and I could not be happier with it. The combination of mind-boggling speed and complete silence is highly recommended, as are the excellent folk at Quiet PC.”
