F12C
AV SYTLE ATX HTPC CASE

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.

Features

EXTRUDED AND PRECISION MILLED PANELS

Unlike the majority of cases on the market (even the aluminium ones) the panels of the F12C are constructed using a meticulous process of extruding aluminium profiles that are then precision milling, hand polishing, sandblasting and finished using anodizing. This give an ultra premium look, feel and finish to all the parts.

DESIGNED FOR THE LIVING ROOM ENVIRONMENT

With media consumption on mind the F12C follows the standard AV equipment width so it can comfortably fit standard living room cabinets. Its high grade finish also perfectly compliments existing home entertainment hardware.

A NEW AND FLEXIBLE WAY TO MOUNT HARDWARE

Introducing the ‘Universal Bracket’, a new drive and fan mounting system that does away with traditional fixed bays. 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. 

SIDE AND UPPER COOLING POTENTIAL

For a system that is designed to be used in a living room, keep cool and quiet is important, so cooling is important. The F12C features venting on both side and the top panel, and with the bracket system, can even support up to 240mm radiators

INCREDIBLE STORAGE POTENTIAL

If you are planning on the ultimate media server, the F12C has you covered for storage.
Thanks to the universal bracket mounting system, you could potentially fit 12 x 3.5″ drives or 24 x 2.5″ drives and of course a mix of both.

    Support

  1. Why are no fans included with the case?

    Streacom doesn’t design or manufacture fans and therefor we would simply be sourcing another supplier’s fans and charging you extra for that whilst also forcing our own choice of make and model instead of leaving that to the individual

  2. Can I use a 9mm thick slot loading drive with this case ?

    The optical drive bracket has been designed specifically for use with 12.7mm thick drives, so whilst it might be possible to attach it in some way, officially it is not supported.

  3. How many universal brackets are included with the case?

    There are 8 universal brackets included, but additional brackets can be purchased from us.

  4. What if I have a question that is not listed?

    If you can’t find the information you need, please send us a message using the ‘Get in Touch’ link at the top right of the page, choose the appropriate department and we will respond with the relevant information.
