The Streacom FC8 Evo measures an even 24.0 x 25.0 x 10.0 cm or 9.5 x 9.8 x 3.9 inches (W x D x H) for a total volume of 6.0 L. It weighs 2.5 kg or 5.5 lb and is composed primarily of aluminum with a sandblast finish. Our sample was a pleasant-looking silver but you can also purchase it in a sleek black version.

The case has a simple rectangular aluminum design with curved corners. Some ventilation is provided at the top and at the back but being a fanless case, there is no direct airflow.

Some additional vents are provided on the underside. From here, both the left and right sides can be disassembled though there really isn't any reason for doing so.

Only four screws need to be removed to take off the top panel and the drive tray directly underneath.

The interior is mostly empty aside from the front panel connectors and cables and the heatsink blocks on the side.

The side of the case acts as a massive passive heatsink with 27 x 3 mm thick aluminum fins. The fins are ridged somewhat to increase surface area.

The circuitry for the power switch and front USB ports adorn the front side of the case. Interestingly, there is both a USB 2.0 and 3.0 option but the later requires a special 20-pin to 20-pin cable accessory.
