F7C Alpha Chassis

The F7C Alpha shares the same upgraded all aluminium construction and single piece extruded top panel design as its fanless brother the FC8 Alpha, but being actively cooled, we upgraded its cooling potential. It now features room for a larger 92mm side panel fan and extra headroom for larger CPU coolers*. The bottom panel vents have also been optimized to improve airflow around the motherboard, reducing overall internal temperature.

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 and it is available with and without an optical drive opening.

All these improvements to the finish and hardware support make the F7C Alpha an unrivalled enclosure for building a stylish, compact yet powerful system.
