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 aluminium 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 hearable anymore. 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.
