There’s an awful lot to like about the ST-FC5S EVO WS. It looks fantastic, if a little server blade-esque, offers superb build quality and plenty of room for your typical HTPC. It also managed to cool our Core i3 test CPU easily, even when enclosed in a TV cabinet. If there’s a case that can truly lay claim to being silent, it’s this one. Set your hard disks to spin down, and while you’re streaming videos or music, it won’t make a sound. Aside from the fiddly but curiously rewarding DIY heatpipe system and lack of a USB 3 header cable, there is little it does wrong.
