FSP Windale 4 Cooler Review

Rating: 8.0.

Previously we have looked at FSP’s debut Windale 6 cooler, and today we are supplementing that review with a look at the Windale 4. As the name suggests, it is a smaller, 4-heatpipe cooler that has an MSRP of $32.99. Can it compete in the fiercely competitive budget cooler market?

Given the FSP Windale 6 impressed us when we reviewed it, I would expect the Windale 4 to be a similarly impressive, but smaller, package. In this review we look at the installation process, thermal performance and noise levels before coming to a conclusion.
