Construction and design
The Enermax ETS-T40-VD
mainly consists of aluminium and copper. The heatpipes make use of the direct
touch principle which means that they get direct contact with the CPU. To
transport the heat as efficiently as possible from the CPU there are four
heatpipes which all have a diameter of six millimeters. Altogether there are 52
fins soldered to the heatpipes. As standard the cooler comes equipped with one
120 millimeter PWM fan and an additional clamping mechanism if you want to add a
second fan to your ETS-T40-VD.
We did not see any manufacturing
mistakes on our sample, and it
seems that it has been well made which means that manufacturing is on a high
level. The heatpipes do have different bending radius, which gives them an
offset regarding the area where the heat is being transferred to the fins.
Furhtermore this cooler comes with a total of 52 fins. You can see a slightly
wedged profile. Furhtermore there are little holes in all fins which allow a
more efficient airflow with less turbulence.
Enermax equips their ETS-T40-VD with one fan, measuring 120
millimeters in diameter. The fan itself comes with a magnetic bearing and PWM
functionality. If you should decide to run it with low rpm the fan is not
Furthermore the fans shape is slightly curved. This should help improve
static pressure which is at 0.72 mmH2O at 800 rpm. If you use the fan at 1'800
rpm, static pressure then is 2.41 mmH2O.
