I've built a computer with this case, the Streacom F8 EVO, it's awesome but I'm having some issues too. But firstly, I'd like to describe the components I chose to use:
1. Asus p8h77-i
2. I3 3225
3. Pico psu (150 watts)
4. Kingston 4gb ram memory
5. Crucial m4 ssd 128 GB
The temperatures of the core are around 60ºc (not Fahrenheit) when I’m using the XBMC, but with the Aeon skin (for those that doesn’t know this is a heavy load skin), this temperatures are ok for my, I set up the limit on 72ºC, the problem I found is on the motherboard, because the temperatures rise up to 60ºC, and this is the limit that the Asus suite sets to the motherboard, I’m getting worry. Someone has any ideas on that?
P.S. Sorry if I haven’t express good, English isn’t my first language
Hi, finally I've managed to built my HTPC using Streacom FC8 EVO. My built is very similar
1. Asus P8H61-I rev. 2.0
2. i3 3220T (35 TDP)
3. NanoPSU 150W (the one from Streacom)
4. G.Skill 2x2GB RAM
5. Samsung 830 SSD 64GB
CPU temp. around 45ºC. MB arodun 40ºC.
OS is Windows 8, almost no programs, only xbmc.
So I think your temps could be lower. I found info that using better thermal grease helps.
I tried to play SW: The Force Unleashed 2 - playable only on low details
However wireless Xbox 360 controller (via usb adapter) works perfectly. So for now I stick with my console for gaming
I've encountered problem with remote (usb eHome reiver plus Harmony remote). I tried to power on/off with remote but I couldn't achive it with my motherboard. I managed to power on from power off state with mouse click (cable connection), with WOL, but no success with remote
I wrote to ASUS is there any hidden BIOS setting (similar to ASRock mobos). Unfortuantelly USB header is not powered by 5V SB (pin 9, the vilolet one) and my Streacom (wesena) internal IR Receiver is useless.
