Summer is coming fast and although i do happen to like going to the beach i can't say that i really like what it does to my computer systems and i am certain that the same goes for most of you out there, especially with the crisis and all which makes it near impossible to have your Air Conditioners working 24/7. That is mainly the reason behind why i chose to work even today which also happens to be my birthday, yes i am also getting older but so far i am not hating it. Anyways today we enriched our LGA1366 cooler database with yet another cooler and so right now it counts 35 CPU Coolers by virtually every company in the field. The cooler in question today is made by Coolink which as some of you know is a brother company to the famous Noctua and so their products are similar in some aspects, still Noctua is considered the elder brother.
Kolink International Corporation is a cooling specialist established in 1996 and well known among industry insiders. Throughout the years, Kolink designed and manufactured many top-performing heat-sinks under various brand names that succeeded in international markets. An experienced R&D team and ultra-modern production plants in Taiwan ensure continuous progress, efficient manufacturing conditions and strict quality standards. Kolink's retail brand Coolink stands for an effective conjunction of no-frills performance, excellent quality and attractive pricing. While Coolink held a strong presence in the Asian market ever since the late 90ies, it was not until 2005 that the brand was introduced to the European market on a large scale. After the launch of Coolink-Europe.com in late 2005, Coolink quickly became a well recognized brand for high-quality cooling components in Europe too.
Unlike Noctua, Coolink does not introduce a new CPU Cooler every now and then and so this is the second CPU Cooler made by them that touched down on our test bench and much like the first one which was called the Silentator this one also has a strange name, the Corator DS. This unit has a similar design with the Noctua NH-D14 but comes with a single 120mm fan unlike the D14 that comes with one 140mm and one 120mm fans installed. For that reason i expect the Corator DS to have a lower performance than the D14 but generally i don't expect a very large performance gap between these two units.
