Enermax was established in 1990, and they have ever since then striven to provide products of highest quality. With a diverse product portfolio that includes power supplies, cases, coolers, fans, and even keyboards, they have become renowned the world over. Having many of those same products recommended by reviewers and having won numerous rewards along the way, they are now in a strong position as a top-tier manufacturer.
Talking about Enermax products, their power supplies always come to mind. Having garnered numerous awards, these won over many enthusiasts with their extreme quality and exceptional performance. The Revolution85+, Galaxy EVO, MAXREVO, and Platimax units have all been solid performers. Add to that the unique look that sets Enermax power supplies apart from the competition and it is no wonder they are an enthusiast favorite. The company's massive lineup of quality fans with uniquely designed looks and several LED options have also made them a favorite of many DIY PC case modders and those looking to spice things up. One item that doesn't spring to mind, though, is the heatsink, but that is starting to change with the release of their LIQTECH AIO liquid coolers and the ETS-T40 the company offers in several different iterations.
In today's review, I will be looking at Enermax's ETS-T40 Black Twister. Using a host of patented technologies and coming at an affordable price, this traditional tower cooler is certainly nice to look at. Featuring four Ø6 mm heatpipes, a unique Thermal Conductive Coating (TCC), and Heatpipe Direct Touch (HDT) technology, it might just beat the heat and its competition. But while exceptional looks and blue LEDs might make for a pretty cooler and a laundry list of patented technologies might improve the design, it all still boils down to performance. With that said, let us see what the Enermax ETS-T40 Black Twister can do!
