Streacom Australia - FC5

Hi,

Is anyone able to help source Streacom silent cases in Australia? I have stumbled upon www.lifefx.com.au but there arent many references or reviews. Maybe new boys in town? Did anyone deal with them yet? I just emailed them for pricing but happy to look elsewhere.

In any case (no pun intended) Im looking for a Streacom FC5 Evo.

Rylan is not an official Streacom Reseller and I saw a lot of bad feedback on forums about them.. even there blog is updated last time in 2012.

www.lifefx.com.au is on the streacom website: http://www.streacom.com/where-to-buy/

Would buy from them

I am sorry about it. I didn't know that he doesn't work with Streacom and Wesena anymore.

Hi All,

I thought I would post back with my experience looking for a Streacom FC5 in Australia. I ended up contacting LifeFx who were superb. They basically held my hand through the whole process of deciding which case was best for my requirements and how to build it. They also gave me a bunch of advice on the components that would fit the case since it is not so obvious for a novice. The heat pipes need a straight run to the side of the case and some motherboards are not compatible with this case. I dodged a few bullets with ASUS boards since there are some components on the them which sit directly in the way.

For me, a novice enthusiast looking to build my first Media Center, the advice was an invaluable service and best of all complimentary . The other shops I contacted didn't even respond to my emails. I would buy again from LifeFX in a flash.

Glad u found a partner to work with.

This is the hard part of building a heat pipe based box, picking out a compatible Mobo. These days it seems Mobo makers are fond of using huge VRM heat sink, directly in the path of where the heat pipes want to be. One of these expensive box makers, I forget which, even has the audacity of putting in their site, "It's impossible to test all Motherboard available in the World..." At these prices, my friend, you better.
