Nice! Do you know the specs of each rail of the LPS? How many rails, and how many amps each rail has? Also, do you know what regulators they are using? 

Good job on the FC10. I like what you've done. Too bad it's hard to find readily available chassis like that.

I'd be really interested in this if I could buy just the power supply.  I don't want to be limited to mATX or mini iTX.  I've sent them an inquiry.

Core Audio has made a spreadsheet that provides information on this question, it can be downloaded from the product page on the Highendaudiopc website (the shop), since Core Audio is part of its product selection. You will find the PDF to download under
"CORE AUDIO DAIDO DAIDO Barebone Entry Music Server", just next to the product description (you must login).

From memory, the amperages for each voltage are:
- Motherboard:   12v 8A
                             12v 5A
                               5v 5A
                             3.3v 5A
- CPU:                   12v 5A

The 3 outputs (shown in the pictures) for USB, SSD and HDD cards provide respectively:
- USB:                    5v 5A
- SSD (2):              5v 5A
- HDD:                12v 5A

 

Feel free to contact Viktor Varady at Core Audio. He is very helpful and will be able to provide you with all the information you may need.

Note limitation of 65W CPU on that download PDF.  I'm not sure if this is due to the Streacom case or the power supply (or both).

I am pretty sure that there is no correlation between Core Audio, a Hungarian company, and the late Core Audio Technology, except for the similarity of name, which indeed may lead to confusion. However, the best I think, you're right, is probably to check this with Viktor Varady.

For me, the warning stated is clear and unambiguous. It says "Maximum 65W TDP processor recommended  (reason: Streacom FC10 passive cooling limit) "
Which in my opinion is rather a healthy recommendation from Core Audio as I doubt the 4 heatpipes of the Streacom are able to properly remove the heat from, for instance, one of these super powerful last gen CPUs.

I only made one modification to the rear of the FC-10. The  Streacom box is certainly aesthetically pleasing but it has the drawback of not having any vertical expansion slots (only 2 large horizontal slots, only one of which is actually usable in practice because they are too close together). As a result it requires the use of a riser cable, which I wanted to avoid as it seems to degrade the sound quality a bit. So I cut the back of the FC-10 as well as the back of an old FC-9 (a useless spare case that had ugly wear marks on the cover) and assembled the two parts in order to have 2 usable vertical slots.

 

That's exactly why I use the FC9 Alpha Fanless Chassis. Respect! A really successful conversion.

 

JCAT USB Card FEMTO is a very good supplement to the JCAT NET Card FEMTO😉

Thank you. I share your opinion about the FC-9 Alpha. I think it is the best-designed in the Streacom range, precisely because it integrates several vertical slots.
For those who need more internal volume, the FC-10 would be near perfect if it used the same design for the rear panel. Too bad Streacom made a different choice :(

 

The JCAT NET Card FEMTO is already on my wish list :)

Not sure, but I'm not the one who can best answer you. I think it's better to ask Viktor at Core Audio.
It should  be remembered that this power supply unit requires proper cooling, in this respect, the large heatsink of the Streacom case does its job quite well.

I'm asking since I already have a server in Sreacom FC-10 case.

Ok, I see you also have a JCAT (Bakoon) battery for your SSD ;)
Can I ask you which PSU you use to power the two Uptone LPS-1.2 ?

I just noticed in the documentation

The case of the device has a part specially made to actively take part in leading heat off from the 8 power circuits.

 

So, it may not be practical to use the power supply in a different case.  I'm exploring this with Viktor.  Clearly, Core Audio has done a careful job of systems integration.
