Air Flow Optimizations
Pressure Differential Flow Design (PDF)
Conical tunnels create an air pressure difference, which increases the air flow up to 15% and allows the heat to be dissipated more quickly.
Vortex Generator Flow (VGF)
In aviation, spoilers, the so-called vortex generators, are used to guide the airflow evenly along the wings. Enermax engineers have applied this technology to the CPU heat sink: Small spoilers on the fins next to the heatpies create a vortex which brings more fresh air to the back of the heatpipes.
Vacuum Effect Flow (VEF)
The partially closed sides of the heat sink create a vacuum that additionally draws fresh air from the side.
