FSP T-WINGS Overview
The FSP T-WINGS is an open-air chassis and is very much like many other open-air cases that we’ve seen over the past couple of years. It has sort of that angled downward towards the front design we’ve seen, but it is much larger than other open-air cases as it is made to support dual-systems. It is a very unique looking case and will definitely catch someone’s attention. For those wondering about size, the official dimensions are 634 x 455 x 530mm.
You would think such a large case would weigh a lot, but since the case is made of aluminum it is much lighter than expected. Starting at the front of the case we have the two front panels. These are a sort of dark grey or silver. Behind them you can actually mount 360 mm radiators, which we’ll show you in a bit. Looking at the front of the case you can see how it is separated into two distinct sections. Right in the center you have a control panel that has a large power button, smaller reset button, audio connections, two USB 3.1 ports, and a USB 3.2 gen 2 Type-C port.
Starting on the left side of the case, or the main side of the case as I call it. You’ll notice a gold section towards the top of the case, this really matches up well with the silver and black colors of the rest of the case. For those wondering we have not installed the tempered glass side panels on the case yet. The main side of the case supports motherboards all the way up to E-ATX. Below where you mount the motherboard is a power supply mount, which supports SFX or SFX-L units. This is made for the mini-ITX system on the opposite side of the case.
There are a total of eight expansion slots, but for some reason FSP has only included four expansion slot covers. They have also installed a vertical GPU mount, but to be able to use it you’ll need to buy your own riser cable. Towards the front of the case you can see the bracket that supports three 120 mm fans or radiators up to 360mm. This entire bracket can be removed from the case so you can easily install your fans or radiator. There is an identical bracket on the opposite side of the case so your max cooling capacity is two 360 mm radiators or six 120 mm fans. There are no other fan placements on the T-WINGS.
The opposite side of the case has a similar design, but is a mix of storage and a mini-ITX motherboard mount. The mini-ITX motherboard mount has two expansion slots, but here again we see that FSP has not included any expansion slot covers. For storage there are 5 removable trays, the top two trays will support both 2.5-inch and 3.5-inch hard drives, while the bottom three are exclusively made for 2.5-inch drives.
Again towards the front of the case you have that removable cooling bracket. Below the mini-ITX motherboard mount is your second power supply mount, which supports full-size ATX power supplies.
Taking a look at the rear of the T-WINGS you can see its open-air design and again how it is separated into two distinct sections. You’ll find power and reset buttons, as well as two USB 3.1 ports on the rear of the case. These are for the mini-ITX system.
The top of the case is rather interesting, maybe this is why FSP has called the case T-WINGS. You have angled wing sections on each side. In the middle there is a large diffused section which houses addressable RGB lighting. FSP does not include a controller for the RGB lights so you’ll need to plug it into a 3-pin addressable header on your motherboard.
