Clean and Clever Design
Streacom’s F1C EVO is the smallest chassis we offer. It will look great in any audio visual system or home theatre, due to being made entirely from aluminium. The surface is sand-blasted and treated with anodic oxidation which prevents any unsightly finger-prints from ruining the look of the case. The F1C EVO WS has no optical drive slot, meaning it can accommodate either three 2.5” hard drive/SSD’s or one 3.5” hard drive and one 2.5” hard drive/SSD. Although it belongs to the mini-series family, the powerful storage options available make these cases more convenient and useful. With its gorgeous looks and generous specifications, the F1C EVO is a great Mini-ITX chassis.
• Air cooled mini HTPC chassis.
• 100% aluminium with brushed finish.
• Ideal for media centre system.
• Compatible with Mini ITX motherboards.
Streacom has a comprehensive build guide that provides general tips and suggestions on what should be considered when building in a Streacom case and how to achieve the best results.
Motherboard and CPU
The F1C EVO is only compatible with Mini ITX motherboards. Due to the fact that the chassis is air cooled, there are no limitations regarding the TDP of the chosen CPU. The only issue to consider is the size of the CPU cooler which may dictate the CPU to use. Due to the size of the chassis, it is only possible to install a CPU cooler no taller than 34mm. The Gelid Silence iPlus for Intel and the Slim Silence A-PLUS for AMD are CPU coolers that will fit the chassis; both available from Quiet PC.
We recommend using a fanless nanoPSU which can provide up to 160W of power. This is more than enough to power a CPU that has a TDP of around 65W along with suitable peripherals. It is recommended not to overload the number of peripherals; three HDDs/SSDs (or one SSD and one HDD), a TV tuner and obviously a motherboard should not be a problem for this miniature PSU.
If you are looking to take control of the PC with the use of a remote control, then look no further than Streacom’s Flirc. It is supplied with a PCB that fits neatly behind a small circular window in the F1C. This means there are no unsightly boxes or wires running out from ports.

There's more choice than ever before, but which computer case is right for you and which features should you look out for?
Date Issued: 20th Oct 2008
The modern PC is potentially a mass of heat output and heat production hot spots. With CPUs rated at more than 100W of heat output, single graphics boards carrying similar ratings (and people want to run two!), multiple hard drives the norm, lots of memory and mainboards covered in heatpipes to combat toasty core logic and PWM circuits, a PC appreciably warming up a room when it’s working hard is no joke.
