Coolink Corator DS

4. Results

In the first test, our Intel Core i7-920 system was running at its stock speeds. As always, Intel's stock cpu cooler is the least efficient and under full load, the logged temperature reached the 58 degrees C. The CooLink Corator DS managed to lower the cpu temperature down to 45 degrees C, which is a very good performance. As you can see in the chart below, the CooLink Corator DS is among the top performers of the category of CPU coolers:

We pushed things a little bit and overclocked the Intel Core-i7 920 to 3.60GHz. The processor now produces more heat than previously and Intel's stock cooler could not keep the temperature lower than 90 degrees C. On the other hand, the CooLink Corator DS kept the CPU's temperature down to 61degrees C. The Tuniq Tower 120 Extreme, ProlimaTech Megahalems and Titan Fernir coolers had also given the same result. Compared to the NH-D14 from Noctua, the NH-D14 from Noctua, fell three degrees Celsius short:

Let's do now some noise measurements. The CooLink Corator DS produced around 48dB of noise measured from a distance of 30cm with the fan spinning at full speed. This is an average performance compared to the rest of the coolers we have tested so far. Of course, the supported PWM function can be used in to make the cooler less noisy:

Available at $55, the CooLink Corator DS is a little bit pricey, at least compared to other solutions:
