Enermax says that the VEGAS fans' reverse spin allows the cooler to self-clean. We have a few of the new fans in the lab, so it will be interesting to see if the dust-free claims that Enermax is making will prove true. A dust-free heatsink would help gamers who don't regularly engage in preventative maintenance.
The ETS-T50 AXE has a TDP cooling capacity of 250W, and it supports the latest CPU sockets from both AMD and Intel. The supported sockets are listed below:
- Intel LGA 775/1150/1151/1155/1156/1366/2011/2011-3
- AMD AM2/AM2+/AM3/AM3+/FM1/FM2/FM2+
The Enermax ETS-T50 AXE comes in two different colors – white and black. Each color rocks a circular LED pattern to accent the heatsink’s fan blades. The white version comes with white LEDs, while the black version has RGB LEDs.
Enermax couldn’t give us a firm price on what the cooler will cost, but they did say it will cost between $50 - $60, and it will be available for purchase sometime in late July. The aforementioned price range is an interesting one, as this puts the new cooler in the same price range of entry-level liquid coolers. We will let you know if the dust-free-fan design and cooling performance will be worth the premium price tag.
