The Enermax ETS-T40F-W; a cooler of a different colour

Tagged: air cooling, enermax, ETS-T40F-W

Have you recently bought a white motherboard and a matching case to go with it?  Are you now bemoaning the fact that your cooler just isn't matching rhe Storm Trooper vibe that you have going on in your case?  Enermax has a solution, the ETS-T40F-W cooler, 610 grams of glowing white cooling standing 139x93x160mm (5.5x3.7x6.3").  The Thermal Conductive Coating does seem to work effectively, though the cooler is not among the best that [H]ard|OCP has reviewed.  They also recommend running the fan at low speed as high speed does not increase the cooling as noticeably as it increases the fan noise.  Then again, at $50 and being the only coloured cooler on the market does place it in an interesting niche market.


"Enermax comes to us with its new compact size model, the ETS-T40F-W CPU air cooler also referred to as the "Fit" series cooler. This model is decked out in its best Storm Trooper white garb which is actually what Enermax calls its "Thermal Conductive Coating." Do the Fit's dual 12cm fans have what it takes to make a good CPU air cooler?"

One day the Enermax ZDPMS might tell you just how good your PSU is

Subject: Cases and Cooling | September 14, 2015 - 05:47 PM |
Tagged: enermax, Zero Delay Power Monitoring System, ZDPMS, PSU

On its face the Enermax ZDPMS software seems a brilliant idea, giving you detailed real time information on your PSU and what it is currently doing.  You can watch each rail separately with values for both current and voltage being displayed, the overall draw on your PSU and its current efficiency rating as well as setting Over Current Protection values.   There are some flies in the ointment, not the least of which is that as of this moment the software supports the Enermax Digifanless 550W PSU ...and that is the end of the current list of supported models.  The current version of the software also let [H]ard|OCP set OCP and OVP values at which the PSU should trip an alarm and reduce or shut off power, which was not exactly what happened when [H] tried an admittedly nasty trick on the PSU.  The review is not all negative and there are some hints of what this software could aspire to as it matures, you should read the whole review right here.


"One area that has been somewhat overlooked when it comes to PC desktop system power supplies is monitoring software. There have been some attempts in the past, but those have been somewhat anemic. Enermax is looking to change that with its new Zero Delay Power Monitoring System."

Computex 2015: Enermax Shows Off New Highly Efficient 550W Digital Fanless PSU

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 4, 2015 - 10:02 PM |
Tagged: modular psu, Fanless PSU, enermax, computex 2015, computex, atx

Enermax has a new power supply on the market that is fully modular, fanless, and digital to boot. the new 550W PSU falls under the company's DigiFanless brand and looks to be perfect for enthusiasts wanting a silent PC.

The Enermax EDF550AWN is the first 550W power supply that is both fanless and supports digital monitoring and control. The 80 PLUS Platinum rated PSU is fully modular and supports both single and multiple +12V rail configurations (user-selectable, +12V1 and +12V2 are rated at 30 amps).

There are no fans here, just lots of ventilation for passive cooling. Enermax officially rates the power supply at 40°C (104°F) maximum operating temperature while delivering the full 550W ouptut power, but in talking with Maximum PC at Computex the company stated that in its testing lab they were able to maintain the maximum output at up to 50°C temperatures before the PSU needed to shut down.

The digital nature of the PSU is related to the ZDPMS (Zero Delay Power Monitoring System) technology which allows users to monitor and control the hardware using software running on the PC it is installed in. The application displays, in real time, the total output power, efficiency, temperature, and individual rail performance. Users can also input their $/KWh electricity costs into the TCO calculator to figure out how much it costs to run their PC and the CO2 footprint. Users are also able to use the ZDMS to adjust the current output and warning notification thresholds.

Maximum PC was on site at Computex and was able to see a demonstration of the PSU monitoring software.

Enermax has included logic to shut down the power supply in the event of overheating as well as the usual fare of safety features (OCP, OVP, UVP, OPP, OTP, SCP & SIP) They even included a bracket that locks the AC cable to the back of the power supply.

From the specifications and this review from ocaholic, the 550W Digifanless PSU is a highly efficient silent PSU with some useful extras that would be perfect for a silent gaming PC, HTPC, or audio engineering PC. It is available now for around $210 from online retailers. Looking on Newegg, you can even get it for 25% off using the promo code 25YRCELEBRATE.

550W of fanless power from Enermax

Subject: Cases and Cooling | April 27, 2015 - 02:49 PM |
Tagged: Fanless PSU, enermax, Digifanless, 550W, modular psu, 80 Plus Platinum

The Enermax Digifanless 550W PSU is completely modular and as the name implies there is no fan to be found in this PSU.  Instead large heatsinks take up most of the room inside the casing, with a mix of Nippon Chemi-con, Enesol and DuraTech capacitors with the PFC and power components hidden under those heatsinks.  [H]ard|OCP's testing proved that the 80 PLUS Platinum rating that Enermax claims for this PSU is well deserved with efficiency over 90% in testing.  [H] was more than impressed with the overall build quality and performance of this heatsink, however the MSRP is significantly higher than the competitions which was why this PSU was left holding Silver.  It is not for sale yet here in North America so there is still a chance that a price reduction could make this PSU very attractive for those looking for a silent PC build.


"Enermax joins the ranks of the fanless computer power supply builders. These are of course a must-have for those enthusiasts looking for a zero noise profile computer build. Many times these sorts of builds of course suffer from very hot environments, so fanless PSUs are a perfect fit for our testing criteria."

The Enermax Thormax Giant is no wasp waisted SFF case

Subject: Cases and Cooling | April 21, 2015 - 05:58 PM |
Tagged: enermax, Thormax Giant, full tower

With all the focus on SFF systems lately it is nice to see a big hearty full sized case now and again.  Enermax has released just such a case, the Thromax GT which can house four 5.25" drives, five 3.5" and a 2.5" hidden behind the motherboard mount or a variety of other setups depending on your use of the converters, up to an including eight 2.5" at the cost of all your 3.5" and two of the 5.25" bays. E-ATX boards will fit, with up to nine expansion slots and if you chose air cooling many of the grates will accept 180mm or even 200mm fans with dust filters which easily slide out for cleaning.  Modders-Inc were more than impressed with the volume, the fully featured front panel and the $159.99 price tag.  Check out the full review here.


"Full-tower cases are sought after for the extra room they provide for system building but if size is the only thing they offer then things would get boring fast. With the market as competitive as it is, case manufacturers have begun looking into offering more than space and design cases that appeal to a lifestyle rather than be an all-in-one …"

Enermax goes big with the Liqtech 240 AIO cooler

Subject: Cases and Cooling | August 6, 2014 - 07:19 PM |
Tagged: AIO, enermax, Liqtech 240

As you can see in the picture the radiator on the Enermax Liqtech 240 is not small, at 273mm x 27mm x 120mm you should ensure that it is compatible with your case or be willing to dig out the dremel to mod said enclosure.  The large fans run almost silently at lower temperatures and even when going full out this AIO cooler really does not produce a lot of noise.  As to its performance, [H]ard|OCP found it to be significantly better than the smaller 120 version though the price is higher than some of the competition however for some the quiet performance will be worth the price.  Check the full review here.


"Enermax comes to us today with its Liqtech 240 AIO liquid cooling system for CPUs sporting healthy list of features including; copper cold plate with patented Shunt-Channel-Technology (SCT), seamless contact radiator fins, non-permeable flexible tubing, and a fan control system offering three cooling modes."

Enermax gets wet, the Liqtech 120X all in one liquid cooler

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 6, 2014 - 03:07 PM |
Tagged: enermax, Liqtech 120X, CPU Water Block, AIO

Enermax's AIO watercooler is a bit smaller than some, as the name implies the Liqtech 120X uses a 120mm fan on it's radiator making it easy to fit into most systems.  [H]ard|OCP recommends you approach the installation with great patience as the rubber grommets make attaching the radiator somewhat tricky but they are worth keeping as the dual fans can be quite loud at full speed.  [H] had hoped for performance comparable to the Silverstone Tundra TD03 that this cooler resembles but ended up disappointed with the results.  Hopefully Enermax can refine the design and produce a more impressive Version 2.


"Enermax is most well know to computer hardware enthusiasts for a long standing tradition of building some of the world's best computer power supplies. Enermax comes to us today with its first All-In-One CPU water cooler, AKA, an AIO cooler. This cooler looks very promising as it hits all the right check boxes with a quality build."

Cool, queit and customizable; Enermax wins again with the iVektor ATX case

Subject: Cases and Cooling | December 10, 2013 - 02:17 PM |
Tagged: enermax, iVektor, atx case

The Enermax iVektor is an ATX case with quite a few drive bays, all tool-less installation and space at the top of the case for a radiator if you prefer watercooling.  Three 5.25" bays and seven 3.5" of which four can be converted to 2.5" for SSDs ought to give you enough space for storage and controllers.  Up to six 120mm fans can be installed, that number drops to four if you install a 240mm radiator at the top of the case.  [H]ard|OCP were impressed with both the thermal performance and low noise of the case as well as the with customization possible, earning this ~$80 case a Gold Award.


"Enermax has long been an enthusiast brand associated with some of the best computer power supplies made in the industry. Over the last couple of years it has also developed a very strong following in computer case arena with DIYers. Today we look at the iVektor case designed by Enermax and it looks to be a strong contender for your next build."

The Enermax Coenus; decent price, decent features

Subject: Cases and Cooling | June 24, 2013 - 01:49 PM |
Tagged: enermax, Coenus, atx

Enermax's new case, the Coenis, stands 478 x 234 x 488mm (18.8 x 9.2 x 19.2") which should give you plenty of space for large coolers and larger GPUs.  With 10 drive slots total you can also fit quite a bit of storage into the case as well.  This case puts the PSU at the bottom of the case, with a vent hole directly beneath it which should hopefully isolate a lot of the heat produced from the rest of the case, beneficial for those thinking of using watercooling.  For $70 you can have this case, which picked up a Silver from [H]ard|OCP.


"Enermax marches on in its war against "plain old" ATX computer case. Today we have a chassis that is fit for a king, Alexander the Great to be specific. This case has bottom draft cooling leading its "advanced cooling system," along with a fine feature list. Alexander was undefeated in battle, will Enermax retain that legacy?"
