Swinging by the suite where FSP was located this year, we were greeted by one of the most unique looking cases in the T-Wings (formerly known at FSP CMT710 at Computex) as well as several different power supplies. One that really caught our eye was the FSP500-30AKB which follows Intel’s new ATX power efficiency standards (no 24-pin, but a 10-pin).
The T-Wings chassis is a metal-framed unit designed to house two PC’s. We say inside loosely as this is an open-air case with panels covering the two compartments. The frame is made from laser-cut aluminum panels as well as tempered glass. Truth be told as it was configured, the case reminds me of a transformer’s head. Although a timeframe wasn’t mentioned, the T-Wings case is expected to hit the market somewhere around $500.
Along with the chassis, they displayed the Hydro PTM+ 850W Platinum liquid cooled PSU. The unit runs passively until around 425W. The liquid cooling system was developed with Bitspower and uses standard G1/4″ / 12mm connectors to support both hard and soft tubing.
Also on display is the Hydro G Pro Series ranging from 650-1000W. The hydro G is fully modular has an innovative design that utilizes the entire PSU chassis as a heatsink to help keep the internals cool. The board inside also has a conformal coating to protect the inside from dust, humidity, and stains.
Focused on SFF (small form factor) builds is the Dagger Pro SFX line of semi-fanless power supplies. The 550W and 650W units use the SFX form factor and sports an 80 Plus Gold rating. The Dagger Pro is fully DC-DC design and uses a single +12V rail.
We also saw the Twins Pro Series of hot-swappable redundant PSUs. Coming in 500W, 700W, and 900W it features two independent power supplies acting as redundant power supplies to ensure uptime. The two modules share the load in normal operations but if one fails, it automatically switches over.
