FC9 Alpha Fanless Chassis

The FC9 Alpha takes all the great features of the original FC9 and improves upon then with small yet important changes. The drive tray has been re-design with variable drive positions, better airflow and now utilizes the new optical drive tray for easier installation and adjustment. The bottom panel has been updated with improved venting and more drive mounting locations, and USB ports have now been placed on both of the side panels for easier access and balance.

As with all Alpha cases, we have improved all tolerances, introduced a new refined sandblast finish, USB3.0 is native, the power LED is now a subtle pure white, the heatpipes and mounts have been uprated, and it is available with and without an optical drive opening. All these updates have been made whilst maintaining the original design ethos of crafting a work of art that beautifully combines form and function.

See our System Build Guide for more information and advice on using our range of chassis.
