Introducing the Next Big Names in PC Hardware

Now we know a little more about the brand, it’s time to feast our eyes on the hardware. Say hello to the C1 PC Case, AP1-V CPU Cooler, FP1 Fans, and FP2 fans

The C1 PC Case

The C1 PC Case has been crafted for premium cooling and outstanding aesthetics. There are three models in the line-up to choose from: classic Black, fresh White, and the stunning ChromaFlair with an iridescent finish.

Straight out of the box, the C1 case provides incredible thermal performance. The front mesh panel wraps around the side, for a unique style and unprecedented airflow, whilst the tempered glass side panel showcases your gaming hardware beautifully. The interior has been expertly engineered to have ample space, accommodating an extensive range of components. Equip your PC with up to an ATX motherboard, a 395mm long GPU, three storage drives (either 2.5” or 3.5”), and a PSU up to 270mm long. Plus, there are dedicated chambers for the power supply and cable management, to keep the air flowing and the clutter down. 

Thermals

More than just a few fancy mesh panels, the APNX C1 has been optimised to keep your gaming PC cool. There is extensive support across this chassis for the cooling system your PC deserves. Maximise airflow and utilise up to eleven fans or build the ultimate dual-radiator loop for powerful water-cooling. The choice is yours! 

Here’s a table to give you a quick rundown of what each panel can support in terms of fans or radiators:

The case comes with four pre-installed FP1 fans, which we will learn more about further down. (You may skip to that info now, if you wish. I won’t dictate your reading order!) There are three 140mm fans mounted on the front and one 120mm model upon the back panel. With their optimised thermal performance and splash of RGB lighting, the FP1 fans are the perfect addition to the C1.

It Gets Better

In addition to great hardware support and powerful cooling options, the APNX C1 is user-friendly to boot. The smooth edges prevent any unwanted snagging whilst you’re hard at work installing components, but better yet, the C1 is completely tool-less. The panels utilise snap on pins to make removing and remounting the outer chassis a breeze. Plus, there are easy to remove dust filters, a fully featured I/O that includes USB-C, and an integrated five-port PWM ARGB hub for all your cooling hardware. Tasty.

The AP1-V CPU Cooler

Whether you’re Team Red or Blue, there are some high-performance processors out there and the APNX AP1-V is here to keep them cool. Thanks to some spicy innovations, this CPU cooler can handle TDPs up to 245W. Even under the heaviest load, your CPU will stay at optimum temperatures with the AP1-V. Plus, you can choose between the black or white models to perfectly match your PC’s style.

The smooth-edged, modern aesthetic runs strong throughout the APNX line, but the AP1-V’s one-piece aluminium alloy frame is particularly stunning. More than just its good looks though, this CPU cooler is equipped with APX’s exclusive Heat Core Touch Technology that provides a seamless connection, thus optimising thermal conductivity and creating stable operation temperatures. 

Efficient Dissipation

There are two factors contributing to the APNX AP1-V’s efficiency: the heat pipes and FDB fan. There are five high-performance heat pipes that effectively draw heat away from your processor, each 6mm in diameter. That heat is then transferred and exhausted from the unit via a 120mm fan. 

This fan is equipped with a fluid dynamic bearing, to increase component longevity, as well as provide reliable and smooth operation. Need some numbers? The mean time between failures is 80,000 hours, otherwise known as nine years.  

We have some even better numbers for you. The fan speeds, air pressure, airflow, and noise levels. The following table tells all!

Compatibility

Good news, everybody, the APNX AP1-V CPU cooler is compatible with both Intel and AMD processors! It has been optimised to work with Intel LGA 1700, 1200, and 15XX sockets, as well as AMD AM4 and AM5. Beauts. 

Cheeky bonus, thanks to its sleek design, the AP1-V will also work with taller RAM modules.

The FP1 Fans

Whether you skipped ahead or read in order, it’s time to talk FP1 fans. These fans have it all: ARGB lighting, PWM control, and optimised features for efficient cooling. Plus, they are available in 120m or 140mm models, as well as in black or white.

These fans are simply stunning, with their sleek contours and vibrant lighting. Black or white, these will be a fine addition to any gaming PC. 

Keeping Cool

To increase longevity and stable performance, the FP1 fans are equipped with hydraulic bearings. Even when at their highest speed of 1,900RPMs, these fans operate smoothly and at minimal noise levels. Plus, they have a thicker frame than standard fans, at 30mm instead of 25mm. This extra 5mm provides a 30-50% boost in performance, which we cannot get enough of. 

Want the numbers? We know you do. Here they are in an easy to digest table:

Noise Levels15.3 – 33.2dBA15.9 – 32.9dBA

Connectivity

The FP1 fans will integrate easily into any gaming PC, thanks to their universal 4-pin PWM and 3-pin 5V ARGB headers. They have extensive compatibility with ARGB hubs and can even be controlled via ARGB motherboard software. This includes ASUS Aura Sync, MSI Mystic Light, and Gigabyte RGB Fusion.

The FP2 Fans

In terms of design, the FP1 and FP2 fans are not dissimilar. They both utilise the same foundation of the thicker frame, ARGB and PWM functionality, and the slick APNX aesthetic. They’re even available in black and white, but only in 120mm models currently. In terms of design, the FP1 and FP2 fans are not dissimilar.

There are a few features seen only on the FP2, however. 

FP2 Features

Firstly, the FP2 frame is manufactured from steel and utilises a recessed design to reduce the height by 3mm when used with radiators. The steel framing lends durability, as well as a sleek finish. Ultra-thick shock absorbing pads are installed on the frame, too, keeping vibrations to a minimum and your fan securely in place. 

Next, the FP2 utilises a fluid dynamic bearing, to enhance the lifespan whilst offering smooth operations. But where the FP2 really shines are its blades. They have larger fan blades to improve airflow and dissipate heat effectively. We’re not done, either. These fans include reverse fan blades so you can even control the direction of airflow. The blades are quick and easy to swap over, allowing you to craft the perfect balance of intake and exhaust fans.
