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 addressed, 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.

Simply put, Streacom has done it again. If you want to build a HTPC, or small form factor PC, that is as much a showpiece as it is a computer case, it would be hard to find a better case than the DB4. ” – read the full review
