FC5WS Evo Fanless Chassis

The FC5WS Evo keeps the same minimalist styling of the original FC5, but incorporates a host of improvements and refinements that keeps this chassis at the cutting edge of design and performance.

Features include, side accessible USB ports, a refined sandblast finish, and a new top panel design with hidden screws and improved venting. Our recently introduced direct touch heatpipe cooling system has been incorporated and the left side heatsink is now available for additional component cooling*.

With its thin profile, standard AV width and 10mm thick precision CNC’d front panel, the FC5 Evo fits perfectly in any high end home theatre setup.
