FSP’s Releases The New CMT230 And CMT240 Chassis
FSP, a worldwide leader in innovative, reliable enthusiast PC components, today unveiled the new CMT230 and CMT240 Mid-Tower cases. The CMT line has proven itself as one of the most trusted case series on the market over the years, offering modern design, flexible cooling options and easy setup for any mainstream gaming system. Both models offer plenty of cooling options to meet the demands of the most component-heavy systems. Where ergonomic design meets flexible ventilation needs, both elegant cases are the ideal solution for today’s mainstream gaming systems and customization enthusiasts.
On the inside, these cases can fit motherboards up to standard ATX size. Along with the aforementioned dual 5.25” drive slots, there’s space for two 3.5” drives, in a cage on the case floor, and two 2.5” drives, in mounts on the motherboard tray. Seven card slots allow GPUs up to 373mm in length to be installed. The cooler height clearance of 179mm shouldn’t be a restriction on air cooling, but it also means that even the widest GPUs should fit in this case.
Moving on to cooling, all fan mounts on these cases can fit either 120mm or 140mm fans. The front of these cases can fit three fans, the top can fit two, and the rear can fit one. Installing 5.25” drives will limit the front to two fans, however. Radiators of 280mm size can be installed on the front and top of these cases.
The CMT230 and CMT240 both support most mainstream motherboard form factors such as ATX, Micro-ATX and Mini-ITX. Both models offer 7 x PCI-E expansion slots, 2 x ODD, 2 x HDD and 2 x SDD bays for unmatched expandability and customization. There are also ergonomic built-in 2x USB 3.0 and 2 x USB 2.0 ports for high speed data transfer.
The FSP CMT230 and CMT240 are available now. The price for the CMT230 is $60, while prices for the CMT240 are $48 for the black version and $51 for the white version.
