The Silentator's mission is simple: to cool... and to do it silently! Employing 3 high-performance dual heat-pipes, an optimised fin-design and a SWiF-1202 quality fan, the Silentator achieves first-class cooling performance at a minimum noise of only 14dB(A). For the Silentator, Coolink could build on the basis of Noctua's much acclaimed Ultra-Low-Noise coolers, which are manufactured in Coolink's factories and earned more than 100 recommendations and awards from international websites and magazines. The Silentator also employs their professional SecuFirmTMmounting system. Thanks to the use of 3 high-performance Dual-Heatpipes, the performance-optimized design of the cooling fins and a SWiF-1202 quality fan, the Silentator achieves outstanding cooling performance. At the same time, the noise emission of the SWiF-1202 can be reduced to a mere 14dB(A) using the supplied PCI-bracket fan controller. As a result, the Silentator is suited not only for harsh overclocking, but also for real Silent-PCs!
Many enthusiasts are familiar with Noctua, however not so many people have heard of their offshoot company Coolink. The construction appears extremely familiar to the Noctua NH-U12P design, with exception being the higher-output cooling fan. A copper base is attached to three full-length copper heat-pipes that are arranged into the popular "U" design. A tall stack of 37 aluminum fins attach themselves to the symmetric array of six heat-pipe ends.
The Coolink mounting system is identical to Noctua's, and replaces the Intel clip system with a high-pressure spring-loaded bolt-through kit.
