The FC9 Alpha is solid aluminum and absolutely beautiful
Overall, the Streacom FC9 Alpha was a pleasure to build in a well as have sitting on top of my entertainment system. It is extremely easy to build in, with plenty of room to spare in side. The passive cooling system means complete silence, which is perfect for a media center PC. With space for upwards of 3 hard drives and 3 SDDs, there is more than enough room for storing movies and TV shows. With the edition of the FLirc or IRRC Solutions for a remote control and a slot loading Blu-Ray drive (or DVD), the FC9 Alpha will make the ultimate media center PC. The combination of beauty and functionality makes this case a must have for any enthusiast building a media center PC. If you’re the kind of person that just must have the best of the best, the Streacom FC9 Alpha is the chassis for you, even at the NewEgg price of $295.00. Even at this price, I feel you are getting your money’s worth. The build quality and attention to detail is second to none. For this reason, I’m happy to award the Streacom FC9 Alpha the Proclockers Editor’s Choice Award. If you decided to pick up this case for your next media center PC, I promise you will not be disappointed!
