Streacom DB6 - a heatpipe dream?

Post by DonP » Wed May 30, 2018 7:08 am

It's been pretty much exactly one year since the Streacom DB6 was made public.
I've been holding my breath but I'm starting to turn purple.

For those intrigued (I couldn't find mention of it on SPCR), here are some year old videos:
"A Case That's an 18kg Heatsink! - Streacom DB6" by HardwareCanucks

"Streacom DB6 är datorchassi med passiv kylning för processor och grafikkort" by SweClockers

I'm planning a new build in a few months and was wondering what people's thoughts were - will this thing ever be released or is it just a heat^H^H^H^Hpipe dream?
Throwing money at the screen doesn't work.

mATX with 125W cooling for each of CPU and GPU is pretty cool (!).

What is the price? I only found an "expected" price of $350. Where can you buy it?

I don't think you can. It looks like it was announced but never actually released.
I also seem to remember reading the price was around $350.
I'd pay $350 for it (probably translates to £350 down my neck of the woods), but I'm starting to think it'll never be released.
Google searches don't return any recent news about the case. :(

Interesting case! Have you tried contacting the company directly (website and/or twitter)? "No news" probably equals "bad news" but it's worth a shot to reach out and see what they say.

If it doesn't work out, they have a passive mini-itx cube that looks pretty interesting and is available now.

Streacom tends to start selling cases several years after unveiling them. You could be waiting a very long time.
