【Taipei, Taiwan - Nov.22th, 2017】FSP just added 2 new members to their CMT series, CMT110 and CMT120. These 2 mid-tower cases each offers 2 options to fit users’ preferences, a transparent side panel on the CMT110 and a solid side panel on the CMT120.Both versions adopted a clean cable management layout to allow users to easily route their cables for the motherboards and parts. The cases are able to fit a 160mm tall heat sink, a graphics card up to 340mm long, and an ATX form factor PSU to the case. Both cases come with a dust filer to protect your parts, and the top panel of the case is built with a magnetic dust filter for easy access.

These cases are designed with good airflow intake in mind, thus they are built with neat interior to help cool down the temperature inside. The PSU guard design creates an independent upper and lower wind channels for optimized cooling results. There are 6 fan mounts available for users who would like to upgrade their cases further, they can mount two additional 120mm fans on the front panel, one 1220mm fan on the top panel, two 120mm fans inside, and one 120mm fan on the back panel.

Although these cases are compact in size, they still have plenty of space for your customized upgrades. Both of them support the standard ATX and Micro-ATX motherboards, provide two 5.25” disk bays, two 3.5” HDD bays, one 2.5” HDD bay, and seven PCI-E expansion slots. Users can easily turn their ordinary PC to a gaming PC. The I/O on the front panel features one USB2.0 port and at least one USB3.0 port for users’ convenience.

Introduction and Specifications

FSP might be familiar as a manufacturer of power supplies, but the company has a growing product offering that now includes cases and CPU coolers, among other things. In this review we will examine the Windale line, which consists of the Windale 4 and Windale 6, a pair of tower-style CPU air coolers.

DSC_0387.jpg

"FSP CPU Air Cooler Windale Series come out with two models: Windale 6 and Windale 4. Both of them are featured with CPU direct contact technology which can release CPU heat more efficiently. The 120mm extreme quiet fan enhances better cooling performance. The High-tech 120mm fin design provides optimized cooling effect. They are highly compatible with the latest sockets of Intel and AMD."

FSP has priced their coolers to compete in what is often called a 'crowded market', and the $29.99 Windale 4 in particular seems to directly compete with the ever-popular Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO - on price, if nothing else. Can FSP's first effort dethrone the EVO as a budget favorite? To this end we will see exactly how the Windale 4 and 6 perform against Cooler Master's venerable air cooler with a toasty Intel Core i7-7700K supplying the load temps (and my trusty SPL meter along for the ride to capture noise levels).

We will get right into it with a summary of the specifications for both FSP Windale coolers:


Windale 4 (model AC401)

  • Heatsink Material: Aluminum Alloy
  • Heat-pipe: 6 mm x4
  • Fan Speed: 600-1600 RPM (PWM) ± 15%
  • Bearing Type: Sleeve Bearing
  • Fan Air Flow: 60 CFM ± 10%
  • Dimensions (LxWxH): 122 x 83 x 158 mm
  • Weight: 620 g

Windale 6 (model AC601 - blue LED)

  • Heatsink Material: Aluminum Alloy with black plating
  • Heat-pipe: 6 mm x 6
  • Fan Speed 600-1600 RPM (PWM) ± 15%
  • Bearing Type: Sleeve Bearing
  • Fan Air Flow: 60 CFM ± 10%
  • Dimensions (LxWxH): 122 x 110 x 165 mm
  • Weight: 823 g

FSP Launches Windale CPU Coolers

Subject: Cases and Cooling | April 26, 2017 - 04:53 PM |
Tagged: fsp, windale, windale 6, windale 4

Windale series .jpg

FSP have just announced their entrance into the cool world of heatsinks with their Windale series.  The Windale 4 sports four heatsinks, and as you may have already guessed the Windale 6 has a half dozen.  Both coolers have a 120mm fan rated at 60CFM at the full 1600RPM, as it is PWM you can reduce that down to 600RPM if you prefer a little silence.  The two models are compatible with any modern Intel or AMD processor, Ryzen included.

FSP CPU Air Cooler Windale 4 (1).jpg

The Windale 4 is 122x83x158mm so you will be able to squeeze it into any chasis which will fit a 120mm fan comfortably.  It is rated for processors of up to 180W TDP so even with its smaller size you will still have good cooling potential.

The Windale 6 is the wider of the two, with the size increased to 122x110x165mm to accommodate the additional two heatpipes which increase the cooling potential to an impressive 240W TDP which should please overclockers.  

We don't have any pricing or test units yet, but we do have PR you can read below.

April 26, Taipei, Taiwan – Global power and cooling specialist, FSP, is pleased to announce the new Windale series of supremely effective, ultra-quiet, heat pipe equipped fan-cooled PC heatsinks. The Windale 6 (AC601) and Windale 4 (AC401) bring a combination of extreme cooling performance with very low noise and vibration to a huge range of Intel and AMD CPUs – including the newest Core i7 and Ryzen processors. These new PC coolers are ideal for gamers, performance enthusiasts, and overclockers, as well as for general users who need quiet, reliable cooling and long CPU life.

FSP patented technology for ultimate cooling performance
Both the Windale 4 and Windale 6 feature CPU direct contact technology to remove heat from the CPU with maximum efficiency, protecting the valuable CPU and extending its lifespan. As their names suggest, the Windale coolers feature four and six heat pipes respectively, to spread that heat through the cooling fins. These louver fins are assembled with a patented solder-less technique which ensures unhindered heat transfer, unlike traditional soldered fins. Finally, the large, quiet 120mm cooling fan drives up to 60 cubic feet per minute (CFM) of air through the fins to dissipate the heat and keep the CPU running safely at optimum speed.

These advanced design and manufacturing features allow the Windale 4 to achieve a thermal design power (TDP) of 180W and thermal resistance of 0.11° C/W, while the larger Windale 6 reaches a TDP of 240W TDP and brings thermal resistance down to only 0.09° C/W in the most demanding scenarios. This allows the Windale series to keep CPU temperatures well below those provided by competing CPU coolers.

The quiet fan that cools and looks cool
Designed with a focus on noise reduction and user comfort, the Windale’s optimized low-noise sleeve bearing PWM fan spins at a low speed, variable from 1600 RPM down to only 1000 RPM to provide almost silent operation, but its wide 120 mm size ensures the fan blades can move more than enough air to keep the hottest CPUs running safely. The heatsink’s anti-vibration rubber mounting pins help isolate it from the motherboard and chassis to prevent noise and vibration.
Despite its unobtrusive and quiet performance, a Windale cooler can still be an eye-catching feature of any PC, thanks to its sleek, stylish design. The Windale 4 exposes the natural metallic sheen of its aluminum alloy fins and copper heat pipes, while the Windale 6 sports a cool black plated exterior coating and features an alluring blue LED effect.

Supports a wide range of AMD and Intel CPUs
The FSP Windale series offers outstanding compatibility with a huge range of CPU sockets, including Intel’s Socket LGA 775, 1150, 1155, 1156, 1366, and 2011, and AMD’s socket FM1, FM2, FM2+, AM2, AM2+, AM3, AM3+, and AM4. CPUs supported by these sockets include the latest Intel Core i3, i5 and i7 CPUs, and AMD Ryzen – as well as many other Intel and AMD CPUs.

FSP Group Launches CMT210 Mid-Tower ATX Case

Subject: Cases and Cooling | February 23, 2017 - 01:44 AM |
Tagged: mid tower, led, FSP Group, fsp, atx

Today FSP Group (a company mainly known for power supplies with headquarters in Taiwan) is launching a new mid tower ATX computer case called the CMT210. The new PC mid-tower features a transparent side window, black angular exterior with LED accents, and a focus on cooling performance. The 460mm x 220mm x 432mm steel case is aimed at gamers and enthusiasts that want to show off their PC internals.

FSP Chassis_CMT210_Product Image.jpg

The front of the CMT210 mid tower is dominated by a massive filtered vent that houses up to three 120mm fans or a 360mm water cooling radiator. The large vent with angled “water droplet” mesh is surrounded by a shroud that features colored accents in either black, red, silver, or deep blue depending on the model you choose. Up top the case offers two audio jacks, two USB 3.0 ports, and a single USB 2.0 port. (The USB 3.0 ports can be plugged into a USB 2.0 motherboard header with the included adapter if you are still holding off on upgrading to Kaby Lake or Ryzen.)

The top of the case is flat with no vents, and there are also no vents on the bottom. Instead there is a single 120mm exhaust fan vent at the rear of the case. FSP includes two of its own 120mm LED fans with the case that come pre-installed in the front and back.

The CMT210 is compatible with ATX motherboards, seven PCI slots, three 3.5” and three 2.5” tool-less drive bays, CPU coolers up to 160mm high and graphics cards up to 360mm long, and ATX power supplies (20.5cm). The power supply is bottom mounted in this case and the storage drives are snapped into trays in the bottom-front caddy and motherboard tray. There are cutouts for cable routing but no rubber grommets (not the end of the world, but they are a nice touch).

FSP claims that its new case is designed with "cooling, expansion, and compatibility" in mind. It is available now in the US though pricing is still unknown as retailers have not put up product pages yet. For more information on the CMT210 you can find details on this product page and this video.

I am curious how well the cooling setup will work with only a single exhaust fan especially if you had a multi GPU setup with aftermarket coolers. Hopefully Sebastian can put it through its paces at some point to examine the build quality and cooling prowess claims. If the price is right, it could be a good budget case as it does not look too bad and does not go crazy with LEDs and bling which is nice to see (I may just be getting old though haha).

What are your thoughts on PSU maker FSP Group getting into the case market?
