Specifications, Availability and Pricing
The T40 is comprised of 04.mm thick aluminum fins, all 48 of them, are equally spaced on the heat pipes at 2mm apart from each other. The heat pipes used on the T40 are copper and are 8mm in diameter. These pipes make direct contact from the milled surface of the pipes in the base to the top of the processor. As they exit the base, they are then arranged in a staggered pattern as they run through the fins dissipating their heat. While the design and style is the same, the T40 is the same 160mm tall, but the width has increased to 134mm and the depth was also increased to 85mm for this cooler. With both the cooler and the fan with its hardware all mounted to the motherboard, you are dealing with 760 grams of T40 hanging on it.
The 120mm fan that comes with the T40 is the same DF1202512SELN fan we got with the T20. Even the same mounting hardware is included. Covering what the fan can do, this 25mm thick fan can run at speeds of around 1800 RPM delivering 68.8 CFM and 2.26mmH2O of pressure. There is an included inline resistor that will allow you to run the fan with a reduced voltage. Then you are spinning at near 1300 RPM and offering 49.3 CFM of airflow and only 1.17mm H2O of static pressure with it in place. There is an additional set of fan mounting hardware to allow you to run this cooler in a push/pull configuration, and since I already have the fan from the T20 to add, I am going to be posting the dual fan results with the T40 as well.
The one thing about the T40 that is going to pique interest even if you are just window shopping is the price. Aside from the T20, it has been a really long time since I have tested coolers in the sub $50 price bracket, and even with shipping included you can have the T40 under that mark. While stock isn't widely available at the moment, I did see that Amazon is showing stock currently with a price of $39.99 plus shipping. Considering the best air coolers on my chart will exceed $100 to obtain them, it's nice to see companies offering an economically friendly solution in this slow time for everyone.
Let's just hope the T40 doesn't bomb in the charts like the T20 did, and we may have a half way decent cooler on our hands.
