Enermax ETS-T40 CPU Cooler


Enermax ETS-T40



As detailed in the Tech Spec the ETS-T40 can be installed on to Intel's 775/1155/1156 and 1366, as well as AMD/AM2/AM2+ and AM3.  The fitting method is essentially the same regardless of the nature of the processor underneath with full multi language instructions and accessories provided.

You've probably noticed by now that this is a rather small page.  That can mean only one thing, that that I've not filled lines and lines of text going off on one about how much of a pain the bum the cooler is to fit.  And believe me, if it was, I would.  So often is a great cooler ruined by being a royal pain in the bum to fit.

I'm pleased to say that the method of installation is a rather simple 2 stage affair.  The first step being to mount the universal back-plate to the rear of the motherboard, securing to it two brackets with rods protruding away from the Motherboard at 90 degrees.  Applying a blob of the supplied Dow Corning TC-5121 TIM you then place the base plate on top of the Processor and secure in place with the cross bar, locking down with two hex bolts.  Enermax also supply a small spanner in the kit to help tighten the bolts up.  Start to finish, including reading the instructions (yes I know what I've said in previous reviews about reading instructions) it took 11 minutes, and I was by no means racing.  If a cooler can be described as such, this was almost a joy to fit.

Seems a decent budget cooler, I'd rather go for the Dark Rock Advanced at that price though.Quote

Cheers for the feedback on the reviews guys. I've still got my L plates on but learning fast. I was really impressed with this cooler, both in its performance and the quality of the build. Granted the BeQuiet models look sexier but then it's back to the Holy Trinity isn't it. If you're thinking about this cooler then it's also worth looking at the Thermolab Trinity, it offers very similar performance and and if you shop about most likely a smidge cheaper.Quote
