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, Streacom 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 optimised to improve airflow around the motherboard, reducing overall internal temperature.
With its clean, simple lines, ability to support larger components such as 3.5” hard drive and low profile expansion card, the F7C ALPHA is perfect for building compact yet powerful systems and it is not available with or without an optical drive slot if a Bluray or DVD drive is not required.
The drive tray has been totally re-designed making it easier to install yet more versatile than ever and now supports 2 x 3.5” whilst still having room for an slot-loading optical drive and 2.5” HDD/SSD. If you prefer the non-optical version, there is room for an additional 2.5” drive, taking the full capacity up to 5x 2.5” or 2x 2.5” + 2x 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. All these improvements to the finish and hardware support make the F7C Alpha an unrivalled enclosure for building a stylish, compact yet powerful system.
