Streacom Unveils its First Gaming PC Case

Known more for its elegant SFF and NUC cases, Streacom took a dip into the world of gaming PC cases, with the F12C. It goes with the marketing tagline "elegant, yet powerful chassis for the living room," which tells us that Streacom is targeting that market which puts its gaming-capable PCs in the living room, and that PCs built around this case will make up as good HTPCs as gaming.

Pictured below, the F12C can seat standard ATX motherboards, with standard ATX PSUs. The case can accommodate graphics cards as long as 300 mm, and reasonably tall CPU coolers. Over the upper half of the motherboard tray are detachable radiator rails, so you can bolt on a 240 x 120 mm radiator. Additional 240 x 120 mm radiators can also be mounted along the case's left-side pair of 120 mm vents, but that would eat into one or more expansion slots. Storage area includes four 3.5-inch, and two 2.5-inch bays. Its cooling system includes two 120 mm vents on each side (one of which on the right side acts as the PSU vent); and two top exhausts (over the radiator rail). There are also passive vents over the rear I/O.

I like it a lot, clean, kinda rounded, like the what seems to be a milky white color, but, its basically a full sized case on its side which means its just simply too big tbh

Glad to see TPU posting about these types of cases as I am laboriously trying to hunt one down (that is similar to this) that will work for me. Thanks, news team...I'm sure there are others planning something similar. :lovetpu:

I wish the dimensions were clear...it's not even on their site yet. I agree, atx vs matx is less appealing than something similar built with the later in mind, in theory, but perhaps it's not practical if you want to fit all typical components anyway. Most full atx this style I've seen are impractically large, where-as with this I frankly DO like the height, and what they've done with that space (Yay, place to put a rad in an htpc)...in my situation it would not hurt at all. The depth appears to be about right for fitting on a typical shelf without overhanging while having space from a wall for plugs, as well as being long enough for a big boy gpu (without excess).

Hmm...something to consider.

Too clean. Should add some USB ports on front panel, because people actually use those.

I like it, nice and clean. Here's hoping for a decent replacement for the company that took too much cocaine after their success in clean sleek PC cases: Lian-Li

To be completely fair, I'm sure there was plenty of alcohol involved, too.

Nice. First White HTPC Ive seen. Could start and new trend in home entertainment. Not even close to being the size of a full size case. Its looks 20 X 16. With two 120mm fans on both sides.
That would be a mid size tower if you stood it up

Very nice! Was worried about the top would look until Jetster posted it, but they got it right.

There is no way thats a full tower. That thing is extremely crammed inside and only could fit an internal radiator (if it didn't have the mounts to put it over the mobo) where the lower PCI-E slots are. And thats only because the PSU and HDD's share a space up top. Thats a mid tower for sure, and looks to be even on the smaller side for a mid tower at that (since it has no HDD rack up front or drive bays).

Looks rather nice, clean. I like the minimalist look of the front panel.
