Construction, design and features …
In the side view you can see the most important features at a glance: Enermax uses an asymmetrical design, so the heat sink can be wider without blocking RAM slots; in addition, not only the fan is attached to the heat sink with a plastic clip, but also on the back is such a holder.
A view from the rear shows that there is no additional fan but a so-called Air Guide installed. The plastic lamellas can be rotated through 360°, and can thus direct the airflow behind the fan in any direction. If you prefer to use a second fan, the mount can change relatively easily.
As a fan comes the model D.F. Pressure 12cm from Enermax. A special feature is the small switch on the top, which can be changed between a maximum speed of 1000, 1500 or 2000 rpm. The minimum speed of 800 rpm remains unaffected. In addition, the fan runs “backwards” for 10 seconds after starting, which should reduce dust deposits.
For users who want to use an RGB fan, Enermax offers the cooler also with the fan “Vegas Trio”. However, these offer a little less fan power.
The thermal compound included is Dow Corning TC-5121 with 2.5 W / (mK).
