The DA2 is a compact ITX case designed to strike a balance between size and compatibility, allowing for high-performance components to fit comfortably in a small form factor space.

What truly sets the DA2 apart from other SFF cases is its unique approach to mounting components. It utilizes a rail and bracket system that makes it incredibly versatile, greatly improving the range of hardware and type of systems it can be used for.

Cooling performance was another critical consideration throughout the design process, not only will the DA2 support 145mm tall air coolers or a 280mm radiators, it provides excellent airflow for them to run at maximum efficiency and minimal noise.

The DB4 is a design masterpiece featuring a bisymmetrical design that blurs the lines between technology and art. Every element of this case subtly screams premium, from the 13mm thick extruded aluminium side panels to the precision CNC’d internal frame, all perfectly blended together with our characteristically understated design tone.

Key to its design are the identical sides of the case which serve both as the striking monolithic exterior and the convection surface (or heat sink) for component cooling and is the basis of its fanless operation.

Motherboard compatibility has been address and the DB4 solves one of the biggest complexities of building a fanless case. With both the motherboard and side panels being parallel, the heat pipes run perpendicular, away from any components and in combination with the flexibility of the universal bracket, means that virtually all ITX motherboard are compatible with the case.

Our existing CPU mount has also been re-engineered to be adjustable and universally compatible with any socket. It now features a copper shim interface between the IHS and heat pipes which creates a more efficient all copper thermal path to the heat sink, greatly improving cooling performance.

To make assembly easier, all the side panels are removable, as is the motherboard tray, leaving an open frame with plenty of accessibility. Building on the innovation of our F12C, components are fitted using a universal bracket system that supports, drives, heat sink mounts and the ZF240, allowing components to be mounted anywhere along the frame of the case, delivering a truly modular and flexible layout.

The DB4 measures 260 x 260 x 270mm but still manages to accommodate an ITX motherboard, a dual slot full height PCI card (max 200mm length, 110mm height), up to 5 x 3.5” or 12 x 2.5” drives (lots of combinations in between), and can be powered by our Nano or ZeroFlex PSU solutions.

The BC1 is a collaboration between HWBOT, Overclocking-TV and Streacom to create a truly exceptional benchtable, one that redefines the product category and towers above current offerings in terms of portability, aesthetics, quality and design. It also forms the foundation of the Open Benchtable Project, a community driven platform which will allow the benchtable to evolve over time though accessories and mods from third party developers.

Being only 8mm thick and weighing a mere 1.82kg, the Open Benchtable is uniquely designed for travelling overclockers, enthusiasts and technical professionals who need put together a full open PC while on the road. It uniquely integrates all the components needed to quickly set up a benching or test platform including; standoffs, screws and brackets.

The entire BC1 is made of precision machined, anodized aluminium which offers fantastic rigidity while also being extremely lightweight. The body also features an integrated carry handle and has been ingenuously designed to incorporate the legs, standoffs, and brackets which all seamlessly stow within. This means no moving (or indeed rattling) parts when in transit.

The entire product uses thumbscrews meaning you won’t even need to bring your screwdriver with you. Motherboard standoffs include traditional and convenient pushpin options. The BC1 supports all form factor motherboards, plus up to four VGA cards. Integrated mounting brackets support system fans and radiators in a variety of configurations.

The BC1 MINI as the name suggests is a small version of the award wining BC1 Open Benchtable. We took everything great about the BC1 and shrunk it down to perfectly suit ITX and SFF PC builds.

It may be smaller but is still shares the same 8mm thick precision machined and anodized aluminium construction which offers fantastic rigidity while also being extremely lightweight. With the reduced size it only weights 805g but still manages to incorporate the same ingenious self contained design which makes it incredibly portable, versatile and easy to store.

Whilst overclocking on an ITX platform is not exactly the “done thing”, the BC1 MINI does allow for it, and lets you build an incredibly compact, robust open small form fact rig or test bench.

The F12C is our first case designed to accept all standard ATX hardware, but of course being Streacom, the design is anything but standard. The ultra-minimalist exterior is made from 4mm thick premium grade extruded aluminium panels which are sandblast finished to create this simple but timeless design.

The unique design isn’t just skin deep, we have developed a new drive and fan mounting system that does away with traditional fixed location bays, making this case incredibly adaptable and configurable. Drives and fans can be mounted anywhere along both sides of the case and at virtually any orientation. This allows you to mix, match and perfectly position drives and fans for optimal cooling and hardware compatibility.

There is an additional upper mounting rail which is designed for fans and water cooling radiators, and combined with side panel venting, provides incredible amounts of cooling potential. Fan grills have been specially chosen to filter dust whilst maximising airflow and can all be externally removed for easy cleaning.

The open internal structure and flexible design allows for oversized PSU’s, 310mm long expansion cards, and 140mm + 2x120mm water cooling whilst still maintaining a footprint of just 420x320x184mm, making it perfectly suited for the high end home entertainment system.

Its not easy to improve on the stunning design of the original FC10, so we didn’t, instead we focused on the performance and tweaked the finish of its beautiful exterior.

Internal airflow has been optimized with a revised bottom panel layout and drive tray, both of which also allow for more drives and the use of our new optical drive tray.
The expansion slots have been adjusted to accommodate dual slot cards and USB ports are now located on both side panels for easier access and balance.

As with all Alpha cases, we have improved manufacturing tolerances, introduced a new refined sandblast finish, USB3.0 is native, the power LED is now a subtle pure white, the heatpipes and mounts have been uprated, and its available with and without an optical drive opening.

What is true of the original FC10 can be said for the FC10 Alpha, its a work of art that beautiful combines form and function.

The FC8 Alpha is more than just the next iteration of the FC8 product line, its a massive redesign which subtly redefines its form and function.

The heatsink has been re-tooled to be sleeker, easier to clean, more balanced and ready for future heatpipe configurations. The top panel is now a single piece extrusion, making is virtually unbreakable, and the venting holes have been removed and replaced with a stealth side vent which reduces internal dust and improves convection airflow.

The drive tray has been totally re-design making it easier to install yet more versatile than ever, and now supports 2 x 3.5″* (up from just 1) whilst still having room for an optical drive and 2.5″ drive. If you prefer the non-optical version, there is room for an additional 2.5″ drive, taking the full capacity up to 5 x 2.5″ or 2 x 2.5″ + 2 x 3.5″ drives*. The tray also features variable drive position and orientation mounting, so you can optimally position your drives.

As with all Alpha cases, USB3.0 is native, the power LED is now a subtle pure white, the heatpipes and mounts have been uprated, and it is available with and without an optical drive opening.

The FC8 Alpha, once again sets the benchmark for small, sleek, powerful and silent computing .

*3 As with any passive cooling solution, environmental conditions will have an impact on the performance. A TDP of 95W is only recommended when the chassis is placed in a location with adequate air flow and moderate ambient room temperature
*4 The front panel is wider that the rest of the body by 15mm, making it 450mm wide
*5 See notes for use with OPTICAL version

On motherboards which have upward facing USB3.0 header connectors, users should note that there will be a conflict with the USB cable and top panel. We have done our best to minimize this by selecting a low profile connector that complies with the USB3.0 standard, but as the FC5 is only 55mm high (internally) the cable does still interfere with the top panel. The cable itself is flexible and users should be able to overcome the problem by bending the cable.

When using the OPTICAL version in combination with the ZF240, there will be a conflict between the ZF240 and Optical drive SATA connector. An angled connector is required in order to install both at the same time.

When using the ZF240, expansion cards will be limited to half height.
