Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The Enermax ETD-T60 coolers use an arrangement of fifty five fins that surround the six, 6mm diameter heat pipes. These fins are closed off on the sides to help trap air flow. They also have little tabs bent in the fins that help to re-divert air as it passes through each gap between the fins. And lastly, the top of each fin has a saw-tooth pattern that allows the fan to have space and disturb the air flow for better efficiency. What separates the two versions of this cooler is that one uses a fan with metal clips to hold it in, and the fan has no LEDs. The ETD-T60-VD comes with a plastic fan cover, LEDs and a switch to change through the seven lighting settings.
On the more technical end, this ETD-T60 is only 151mm by 131mm in width and depth. The cooler is only 85mm tall, but once the fan is on it, it increases to 115mm in height. I like that the ETD-T60 has 35mm of clearance under the cooler to allow for taller heat sinks and regular height memory without any restrictions. There isn't any mention of LGA2011 mounting yet, but the Enermax will cover all of the latest and most of the older sockets. Aside from the aesthetic appeal of the lighting and the slick looking aluminum fins to go along with the Nickel plating, the Enermax is quite the looker for a cooler that blows down at the motherboard.
Pricing was brought forth by Enermax not too long ago with its release of the ETD-T60-VD and ETD-T6TB. What was listed then was that the VD would sell for 59.90 Euro and the TB for 54.99 Euro. For those reading this from the States, I was able to locate the ETD-T60-VD at only three locations currently, and those locations don't even have an image of the cooler available. As I type this the cooler is so new to the market that even though I was able to find it for pre-order, the $73.18 asking price at Provantage is a bit tough to swallow. For now, I would wait a bit until stock becomes more available and with that pricing should drop to more acceptable limits. In my opinion, even with the trick lighting, I would expect a $60 price point to be an easier pill to swallow when looking at buying the ETD-T60-VD from Enermax.
