As I said at the beginning of this review we see cases like the T-WINGS every few years and now you actually have a choice from a few different companies to pick up a crazy high-end case. FSP has really done a great job with the T-WINGS, especially for being their first case like this. First off FSP has selected quality materials for the T-WINGS. You have an all aluminum frame with 4mm-thick tempered glass panels. FSP has taken those materials and constructed a truly unique case, something that will definitely catch someone’s attention. I know when we first saw the chassis at CES it was the first thing we gravitated to when we showed up at the FSP suite.
The thing about cases is that they need to be functional. When it comes to cases like this sometimes functionality sort of comes second to style, but for the most part the T-WINGS is very functional. We really had no issues with our installation and every part of the case served a purposed. The cool thing about this case is that you can install two systems (E-ATX / Mini-ITX) and do it very easily. Each system is installed on either side of the case although for some reason the power supply mounts are flipped, so you have the SFX mount on the ATX side and the ATX mount on the Mini-ITX side. Storage on the case is adequate, but its implementation does take up more space than it needs to.
When it comes to cooling on this case it does not ship with any fans at all, which is expected with a case like this. You can however install three 120 mm fans on each side of the front (so six 120 mm fans) of the case. If you wanted to go the watercooling route that means you can do dual 360 mm radiators up front. I do have to say this case is really made for custom-loop watercooling, but it was weird to not find any type of pump / reservoir mounts or even holes for brackets.
I think that if you are looking for a truly unique chassis the FSP T-WINGS is it and on top of that it is a dual-system chassis. So you can easily build an awesome gaming system with a secondary streaming system. Like anything that is really unique this case is not cheap, right now the T-WINGS is selling at our favorite online retailer for $474.92. Overall ThinkComputers gives the FSP T-WINGS CMT710 Dual System Chassis a 9 out of 10 score.
