We’ve seen CPU coolers in all shapes and sizes, as well as capabilities, and have noticed some trends during our extensive testing. Some have to do with aesthetics, some have to do with fan speeds or larger fin surface area, and some attempt unique designs, all in the hopes of improving cooling efficiency on your hot processor.
Another trend is that the Heatpipe Direct Touch (HDT) towers have proven to be extremely efficient in terms of cooling performance. Coolink is one such brand that uses this technology in their Corator DS CPU heatsink, however, they’ve taken it a step further with the Gapless Direct Touch (GDT) in order to eliminate the large spaces between heatpipes we normally see at the base. The question is: "Does it make a difference"?
Let’s take a closer look at the Coolink Corator DS and find out.
Thanks go to Kolink for supplying the review sample.
"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."
