* This model is end of life (EOL). It is possible that single units are still available on the market.
Until the end of August 2015, ENERMAX will introduce the new >> ETS-T40F series.
CPU cooler with 12cm PWM fan and four 6mm high-performance heat pipes.
- Thermal Conductive Coating*
Innovative, thermal-conductive coating for an efficient heat dissipation and higher cooling performance.
* only ETS-T40-BK & ETS-T40-W
- Adjustable Peak Speed (APS)*
Multi-purpose fan for easy customisation according to the system requirements. With a small switch at the back, the peak speed can be changed in three steps. The fan therefore offers three various RPM ranges: Silent Mode / Performance Mode / Overclock Mode.
* only ETS-T40-W
- Optimized Air Stream Conduction
Unmatched thermal resistance of 0,085°C/W (ETS-T40-TB: 0,09°C/W) due to optimized air stream conduction: Stack Effect Flow (SEF, patented), Vortex Generator Flow (VGF, patented) und Vacuum Effect Flow (VEF).
- Heat Pipe Direct Touch (patented)
The heat pipes directly rest on the CPU, so that the CPU heat can be dissipated effectively without additional resistance.
- Universal bracket for Intel® and AMD®
User-friendly CPU cooler mounting supports all Intel and AMD CPU: Intel® 775/1150/1151/1155/1156/1366/2011 and AMD® AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2.
- The 2nd Generation of the Patented Twister Bearing
Smooth and persistently silent operation due to the patented Twister Bearing Technology. The second generation of the bearing guarantees up to 160,000 hours MTBF.
- Bright Colours*
Eye-catching and bright colours thanks to patented circular LED light. Enermax LED fans shine many times brighter than ordinary LED fans.
* only ETS-T40-BK
- Click Mechanism
Fan with detachable blades for easy cleaning from dust.
- Expandable Cooling System
Second fan bracket included in the delivery for cooling system upgrade with one additional 12cm fan.
- Effective Vibration Reduction
Adhesive rubber strips to reduce vibrations of the installed fan.
- High Conductive Thermal Grease
Tube with Dow-Corning® thermal grease (TC-5121) for best thermal conduction between CPU and heat sink.

VORTEX GENERATOR FLOW (VGF)
| || ||Vortex Generator Flow (VGF) - patented |
Vortex generators are applied in aviation industry. They make sure that the air stream is lead as close as possible along the airplane’s wings. During the CPU cooler development, the Enermax engineers recognized the potential of this technology to optimize the air stream inside the heat sink: Small spoilers on the fins, the so-called Vortex generators, conduct the air close along the heat pipes. Much more fresh air can be transferred to the back of the heat pipes.
STACK EFFECT FLOW (SEF)
| || ||Stack Effect Flow (SEF) - patented |
The Stack Effect is a natural, physical phenomenon: Warm air is rising up because of its lower density and leaves a low pressure behind that in turn pulls cool air. Four openings in the middle of the heat sink make use of this effect. They interrupt the air stream so that the warm air gains space to escape. The heat dissipation can be accelerated.
VACUUM EFFECT FLOW (VEF)
| || ||Vacuum Effect Flow |
Also the third innovation makes use of a physical effect. The best example to explain this effect is a moving car: It pushes air aside as it goes down the road and leaves a low pressure. Air from the sides will be sucked in to compensate the difference in pressure. According to that, the CPU cooler sides are not fully closed, so that cool air can be sucked into the heat sink.
HEAT PIPE DIRECT TOUCH (HDT)
| || ||Heat Pipe Direct Touch - patented |
Heat Pipe Direct Touch means that the heat pipes rest directly on the CPU. It has the unquestionable advantage against a base plate, that it transfers the heat effectively without any additional resistance straight to the heat pipes.
