total price of all components at the time of order (al bought new in Sept and SSD in Oct 2015) £650 (I had some special discounts which I could have used on other orders but with the discounts £600)
I would want less 10% and I will pay postage as well
It may seem much but i7/ssd/16gb and fanless is a great pc :)

Yeah, it's really nice. But out of my price range for what I need an extra PC for though. Good luck with eBay sale!

I upgraded the cpu to i7-5775c and will not sell it anymore BUT
I have 3 pcs similar/same silent no fans
- I will sell one with the i7-4770s but the rest is brand new only the cpu is used for less than 6 months and added dvdrw - similar here with the t version of the cpu which is lower benchmarks sold to 1k+ http://www.amazon.co.uk/s/ref=sr_st_pri ... -desc-rank
- 2x same specs more or less but with i3-4130t (which is sold at £90 and has 4k+ benchmarks which is still great and of course you can upgrade later to i5/i7) with same case, same motherboard, 8Gb ram, one with blu-ray and 1 with dvdrw, 120gb SSD + 500gb/1tb hdd at around £500 - need to do my calculations on costs
Anyone interested? I will confirm exact specs but can confirm the i3 worth at least £600+ and Sedatech sells on Amazon for £900-1000 same specs

Specs for the 3 PCs I have for sale

1st one is similar to http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sedatech-Evolut ... B014T7P8OW which is £1200 on that link but mine is even better specs: CPU is i7-4790S (S is better than T version), has 2000gb/2Tb HDD instead of 1000gb, the rest is the same 120gb SSD, 8gb ram, combi blu-ray drive with dvdrw, usb 3.0, wifi, bluetooth, same case Streacom FC8 Evo which is £150 (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ST-FC8S-EVO-S ... SwDwtUq-Tb but mine is black), good motherboard which cost £90 http://www.amazon.co.uk/MSI-H97I-AC-LGA ... SI+H97I+AC. Also Windows 8.1 Pro license (free upgrade to Windows 10). NO FANS at all, completely silent. That amazon link shows lower specs for £1200. Real build cost is about £750-800. I will sell it for £650 inc postage. It is brand new except the CPU which I bought it in Sept 2015.

2nd same case, motherboard, 120gb SSD, 1tb HDD, 8gb ram, dvdrw, win 8.1 pro license, bluetooth, wifi - all this is brand new + the CPU is upgraded to i5-5675C which has very good integrated graphics iris pro 6200 (cpu alone is £220) - price £600 (only CPU is used few months old)

3rd same case, motherboard, 120gb SSD, 500gb hdd, 8gb ram, dvdrw, CPU is i3-4130T (4k+ benchmarks), bluetooth, wifi, win 8.1 pro license (free upgrade to win 10), brand new £500 delivered

easy to upgrade ram, hdd/sdd, replace dvdrw with bluray or even upgrade the cpu to any socket 1150

Hi Steff - So recently found out that the FC5 supports full-size motherboards, and it has peaked my interest in a Streacom case again and wanted some advice.

I need to replace my aging Shuttle PC that I use as a HTPC as the case is very noisy, Streacom seem to be the best option and the FC5 will fit underneath the TV perfectly. I haven't done anything in the past as the cost of a mobo/memory/CPU/Case/PSU was going to get expensive, but as the FC5 now supports a fullsize mobo it means I can reuse an older motherboard (With memory and CPU) and only purchase a case and PSU.

Can you provide any build advice? I'm fairly confident building a PC but the Streacom cases seem to be a bit more complex, also which power supply did you use? can't help think those nanoPSU's look a bit fragile.

What mobo and cpu you have?

My motherboard is the Asus P5KPL-AM (https://www.asus.com/Motherboards/P5KPLAM/) - I need to get the measuring tape out and compare against the building guide on the Streacom website to make sure it will fit. I realised that other day that this also has onboard graphics which is a bonus as I thought I'd have to use the PCI slot for a Gfx card.

I've got 2 processors to choice from:
Intel Core2 Quad Q6600
Intel Core 2 Duo E7400

I know they're old CPU's but they still work fairly well, I only upgraded my desktop PC last year and I was using the quad core with this motherboard until then.

I compared the CPU's here: http://cpuboss.com/cpus/Intel-Core2-Qua ... -Duo-E7400
At the moment I'm thinking the Core 2 Duo would be my better option as it has a lower power usage, the TDP is 65W which I think Streacom recommend as the maximum.

Yes use the 65w cpu
for PSU: either 150w should be enough http://www.quietpc.com/st-nano-psus (no watts left for extra video card) or 240w http://www.quietpc.com/st-zf240
or pico psu http://www.kustompcs.co.uk/acatalog/info_1667.html + http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/261313547526 (cheap power brick but works, I bought 3 from my silent pcs I sold)
the heatsink is not that difficult to install (the most "difficult" job for this build), there are youtube guides I am sure
