The new FC5 ALPHA follows in its predecessors footsteps with the same minimalist styling, the updated version brings even more refinement to this timeless sleek design. At the heart of these improvements is the updated bottom panel which is not only more robust but has been redesigned to optimise airflow, reducing internal temperatures. Motherboard size and drive storage options also benefit from this new design, with the FC5 Alpha now accommodating an additional 2 x 2.5 drives and a full size motherboard. A single USB3 port is now located on both sides of the case for easier access and balance.
Many home theatre chassis are finished with the brushed aluminium effect, but the FC5 is not like other home theatre chassis. Streacom have finished the FC5 in a very fine shot-blasted finish which gives an elegant pitted look to the aluminium rather than a lined look which brushing produces. It is all down to personal preference as to which looks better but one advantage that a shot blasted finish has over a brushed finish is that it does not leave visible fingerprints behind as brushed aluminium finishes often does.
