Coolink Corator-DS Heatsink
Coolink has a reputation for offering quality cooling components to the greater European region, with products like the Coolink Silentator delivering good performance without much noise. Almost twice the size of their Silentator model, the Coolink Corator-DS offers a twin-finsink radiator design with four copper 8mm heatpipe rods connecting each side to an all-copper base.
While the dual heatsink radiator design may look very familiar, the exposed copper heat-pipe rods have been fused together with the copper base, making this one of the few HDT designs to use similar metals for the mating surface.
Features and Specification
Coolink isn't a household name here in North America, but merchants like FrozenCPU keep inventory of this product line. A full-size tube of Coolink Chillaramic thermal paste is included with the Corator-DS heatsink, the very same TIM that topped the results of our 80-way Thermal Interface Material Performance Test mega-article with an A- rating.
Using both the overclocked AMD Phenom-II X4-965 BE (140W version) and six-core Gulftown Intel Core i7-980X Extreme Edition CPU's, Benchmark Reviews evaluates cooling performance with the Coolink Silentator CPU-cooler.
