FSP @ Computex 2024

Computex 2024:

FSP is one of the biggest names in the world for high-end PSUs, but did you know they also make some great cases and coolers? We stopped by their booth at Computex to see what they had in store for the second half of this year and beyond. First up, this absolute unit of an AI workstation, featuring a Threadripper 7980X, ASRock TRX50 WS motherboard, and three ASRock AMD RX 7900 XT Phantom 20GB graphics cards with 96GB of DDR5 memory from KLEVV. Of course, it features the FPS U700-B case, the FSP AE48-B cooler, and the mighty FSP Cannon Pro 2500W power supply, a true king among PSUs, that’s for sure.

The PSU its self is capable of powering up to your 12VHPWR graphics cards, and yet this case has room for two PSUs should you have the need of it.

The case is extreme, but if you’re building a workstation, it’s definitely needed. If you’re building something more “gamer” then the U690-BP is likely more your speed, with three sides of tempered glass, a built-in fan control system, BTF motherboard support and room for up to two RTX 4090s. And it looks absolutely amazing, easily one of the best looking cases at Computex.

It was also being used to display their PWM ARGB fans, which feature on-fan RPM monitoring, with a small LCD readout on the side of each fan, a gimmick, but one I actually do like quite a lot.

On the front of the case, there’s a built-in fan control unit, haven’t seen these in a few years, but they’re making a come back given the demands of modern gaming systems. Plus, as much as AI is doing a lot of the lifting these days, there’s something to be said for a tactile system like this, and it reminds me of the old Lamptron control panels.

Coming back to the PSUs, the Cannon Pro 2500W is about as big as they come in the consumer market, with ATX 3.1, PCIe Gen 5.1, and four PCIe 12VHPWR connectors.

This single unit can power four RTX 4090s with plenty of power to spare for dual workstation CPUs.

That’s a lot of power, but at least it’s Platinum rated, and efficiency will be very important on such a powerful system.

Moving a little down the range is the MEGA TI 1650W, which features 80 Plus Titanium Rating, off-wet, off-dust and off-stain conformal coating, and semi fan-less mod, and 2 x 12VHPWR connectors.

The MEGA TI 1350W, pretty much the same deal, but just less power, albeit, 1350W is still a freaking LOT of power.

There’s the extremely robust Hydro PTM PRO 1650W, just as well equipped as the rest, but more industrial in terms of hardware and design vs the more gamer friendly MEGA models.

Their new ADVAN PM 1000W is surprisingly compact at 150 x 140 x 86mm, but features massive power, 105c Japanese bulk capacitors, and Platinum efficiency.

They’ve got some new coolers too, albeit they were a little thin on details, but we can see there are two 240mm models in black and white.

360mm models in black and white.

And a massive 420mm model for those who need to cool extreme TDP CPUs. All models feature the same infinity mirror design on the pump and ARGB fans.

The NE5 is a 120mm compact and affordable air cooler, and is available in all black, or with an ARGB fan for those who like throwing some colour in their builds.

The ME7 is the same cooler design, but in a dual tower configuration, and again comes with ARGB fan options, 6 heat pipes, and will handle more demanding CPUs.

I love the cut aluminium top panel design too, simple but classy.

And again, that cooler but in black is the MP7-B.

As a child still in my 30's (but not for long), I spend my day combining my love of music and movies with a life-long passion for gaming, from arcade classics and retro consoles to the latest high-end PC and console games. So it's no wonder I write about tech and test the latest hardware while I enjoy my hobbies!
