FSP recently announced that they are officially joining the 2-in-1 PC chassis market with the latest T-WINGS series chassis that is capable of housing 2 separate systems within a single casing.
First revealed during CES 2020, the FSP chassis strikes the heart of enthusiasts and gamers by sporting a streamlined, sleek yet polygonal design to bring out the gamer flavor as existing dual system casings are mostly just enormous rectangles and considerably heavy. Mainly targeting production users who work on separate devices at once, it aims to improve the ease of installing and operating both systems by providing a straightforward route for cable management, therefore, saving space and resources.

The chassis could theoretically speed up productivity by not requiring users to move between systems physically so they stay working than walking around. The main system supports up to EATX motherboard sizes for top-of-the-line gaming workstations or HEDT systems, while the sub-system supports mini-ITX motherboards that focuses on capabilities and features while being compact. For the front panel, it consists of 1 USB 3.1 Type-C Gen 2 port, 2 USB 3.1 Type-A Gen 1 ports as well as 3.5mm input and output for your microphone and headset.
There is a 40mm gap in the middle for easy cable management for both systems and surrounding is the tough yet light aluminum frame along with its 4mm tempered glass panels to protect valuable components from being exposed while dissipates heat efficiently through the large ventilating gaps. Surprisingly, it can also hold 2 separate PSUs and 2 sets of liquid cooling pipings at once and supporting the radiator fan up to 360mm. And you might as well forget your mounting bracket for your GPU, as the chassis natively supports vertical and horizontal orientations which is a win for everyone. There will be 3 3.5-inch and 2 2.5-inch hard drive bays for both of your systems to hook up.
Onto the RGB blink blinks, there is an addressable RGB light bar to personalize your theme of the day and it is controllable through the use of ARGB software sync which is compatible with all major ARGB motherboard control software including ASRock Polychrome Sync, ASUS Aura Sync, Gigabyte RGB Fusion, and MSI Mystic Light Sync.
Streamers could benefit from utilizing this casing, as live streams usually run on dedicated machines to not hog resources from the main content system while it feeds output signals back to the streaming unit. And in a case of power failure to the main system, the stream will not get interrupted and cut off halfway which is essential for any commercial or public live streams. Another interesting choice would be running a separate OS for each system, such as Hackintosh on one side and Windows 10 on the other. Production and power users would definitely appreciate this setup for its flexibility.
The T-WINGS CMT710 does not come cheap though. Priced at $499USD, it does seem to live up to that price considering some of the more user-friendly designs alongside its build quality of aluminum and tempered glass.
