FSP Windale 6 Review

A Closer Look »


FSP packages the Windale 6 cooler in a box that measures in at roughly 12.7 cm long, 14 cm wide, and 19.7 cm tall. On the front is an image of the cooler with a shot of the heatpipes that make direct contact with the CPU. There is also a mention of AM4 support right on the front, which is nice to see. The left side details a few features and has a graph showing the cooler's cooling performance at various TDP levels. Finally, there's the back which goes into the cooler's specifications, supported sockets and more.

On the right side is another image of the cooler, this time in black and gray and little else to be seen. The top just has the 240 W TDP and FSP website URL listed. Nothing else to be seen, and sadly, there's no warranty information on the box either.


The FSP Windale 6 is packed inside a small cardboard box with some added foam for protection. While not the best packaging I have seen, it is far above average. The peace of mind knowing that what you have bought will arrive safely is often overlooked by many companies. FSP decided to find a middle ground with a solution that is still economically sound while protecting the cooler adequately.

The Windale 6 comes with everything you need to properly install it on just about every modern socket. A few extras are even included. While FSP could have stuck with just four rubber fan holders, they included eight, which allows for a dual-fan configuration and is a nice touch.

Common parts supplied for mounting include:
  • 8x Rubber fan mounts
  • 4x Backplate screws
  • 4x LGA2011 screw pillars
  • 4x Black screw pillars
  • 4x Nuts
  • 2x Crossbar screws
  • 2x AMD mounting arms
  • 2x Intel mounting arms
  • 1x Crossbar
  • 1x Backplate
  • 1x Packet of thermal grease
  • 1x Instruction book
  • 1x 120 mm fan
  • 1x Heatsink
