FSP is an oldtimer in the PC market. Having been offering power supplies, industrial and medical systems, TVs, etc., since 1993, they now also provide power supplies for many more vendors, with a great number of them being OEM systems. However, as with any business, FSP is not complacent as they have even expanded into power banks, uninterruptible power supplies, computer cases, and system cooling.
The first cooler FSP released that I tested was the Windale 6. In today's review, I look at the Windale 4. It's the smaller sibling that is no nonsense or fluff.
