PCWizKid has first impressed at the quality of the package, with all the included necessities and the chillaramic thermal paste. Then when we first saw the four huge 8mm heatpipes, a dual fin stack tower design and a PWM controlled SWiF2 120mm fan,...

High performance cooling can surprise you at times thus adding some weight to the adage about picture books and their covers. Our first visual impression of the Corator DS was not good. In fact while there is plenty of surface area we felt that...

Coolink is one of the few companies that are constantly on our radar simply because they have a habit of releasing great performing heatsinks that don’t cost an absolute fortune. The overall cost of certain products are being closely scrutinized...

The Coolink Corator DS is a heatsink that delivers respectable performance. At stock speeds and voltages, the Corator DS was within two degrees Celsius of the TRUE and Noctua NH-U12P SE 1366 - two high-end coolers in their own right. When compared to...

It's large and will limit the height of the memory stick in the first slot, but then again that's an issue with just about every cooler in this class so it's not a show stopper. You should...

Coolink Corator DS is a good cooler. At first it impressed us by its size, weight and construction quality. It looks nice, but we don't think that "sandwich" coolers are the most beautiful ones.Talking about noise, it is on an average category,...

degrees, but all the same, the Cogage Arrow is the new top dog for the AMD platform. The Noctua comes in second to the Cogage and the Thermalright Venomous X comes in at a not too shabby third. The Venomous X manages to beat the third twin tower cooler,...

The Coolink Corator DS CPU cooler is a very good choice for any computer setup, specially a budget system. Performance is really good and the fan is very quiet. The overall installation was fairly easy but not as easy as one would expect (not...

The Coolink Corator DS is an overall great cooler that includes a slightly more efficient cooling method other than HDT cooling. The Gapless Direct Touch (GDT) cooling method allows for more heat dissipation and during the testing phase, the cooler...

The Coolink Corator DS is a very good looking cooler that showcases a rather unique aesthetic, particularly with the colour scheme of the included fan. It is good to see an included fan, as some top-end air coolers don't come with one, leaving...

In the end I found that the Coolink Corator DS was a good CPU Cooler. This massive cooler makes great contact with the CPU enabling to transfer the maximum amount of heat from the CPU with little effort. It can do this with its gapless contact between...

When i first heard of Coolink about 3 years ago i was not aware that they were a brother company to the award winning Noctua, which changed the moment i set my eyes on the Silentator since it looked a lot like the NH-U12P. Certainly the...

The new Coolink Corator DS with gapless Direct Touch technology turned out a very well-made high-quality solution. Although this newcomer didn’t manage to shake up the positions of the air-cooling leader, it will still find its niche in the market...
