Enermax ETS-T40-VD CPU Cooler Review

Article Index

Whenever I see a big cat act, all I can do is sit there trying to will the cat to snap its jaws shut at the appropriate time. You know…guy doing a split over an open tiger’s mouth…perfect timing. It sounds kind of cruel and off kilter, but the entire thing seems so unreal, that it just seems like a cartoon, anyway, and nobody ever gets hurt in cartoons, ever. You can shoot Daffy Duck straight in the face with a shotgun, and worst case scenario is that he has to turn his bill back around to the front of his head. Don’t even get me started on the steamroller effect.

 

 

However, accidents do happen in real life. Just ask Siegfried and Roy, whose long career ended with just such an act of a tiger that decided it was a good time to close its mouth. Even Penn & Teller pondered at length about who would be responsible for death during a magic trick. Thankfully, there is no reported accident involving them, though I have heard several people say that Penn Jillette does make them want to kill someone, or themselves, after prolonged exposure. I happen to like the guy. What is it with these Vegas duos? Too long staring at the flashing lights?

 

The Enermax ETS-T40-VD is a new tower CPU cooling entry on the market, starting off with some very impressive features. The Enermax ETS-T40-VD features four 6mm copper heatpipes using HDT (Heatpipe Direct Touch) Design to ensure the greatest transmission of heat away from the CPU to the heatpipes. The four heatpipes run through an aluminum fin array standing 160mm tall, and utilizing patented Vortex Generator Flow and Stack Effect technologies for world leading thermal resistance and heat dissipation. To get the air moving, the ETS-T40-VD features a 120mm Vegas Duo fan, capable of speeds from 800-1800rpm. The Vegas Dup is capable of 75.98 cfm,  all while staying below a whisper quiet 26dBA. To keep things looking flashy, the Vegas Duo features dual color LEDs, capable of twelve color changes and patterns. Dual fans are optional and mounting hardware is included.
