Default Coolink Silentator Heatpipe Cooler Review

Being a reviewer, Coolink has provided me with 3 different mounting kits and a required mounting kit (pressure springs and fastening brackets). These were for LGA 775, AM2 and K8 (754, 939 and 940). However, as a consumer, you must choose which kit you need before purchasing, as the Silentator will be available in one of these three varieties. Coolink also provide a mounting bracket for a fan controller, as well as a long steel screwdriver with a 90 degree bend in it. This is required for mounting in some cases, as the mounting bolt must be accessed from through the cooler itself (seen later). Some extra goodies include a 3-pin fan to Molex adaptor (in the event that you donít have a spare motherboard 3-pin header), some thermal paste and a second fan mounting kit. The Silentator allows for two 120mm fans to be attached. Very generous. Finally, a lovely booklet is included with a rubbery case sticker. The book was the part that made me laugh Ė ...my computer is so silent that I can hear the snowflakes falling.

Excellent!

When can we expect the new roundup?

I have been looking into the Silentator and some web reviews suggest that it is as good as the Thermalright Ultra 120 and yet it comes with a good fan too!

One observation about the last roundup:
- Since there are heatsinks that come without a fan you need to establish a reference clip-attachable fan, as well as upward & downward recommendations on noise/cfm.
I am not the type to cut fans and secure them with elastic bands, and I'm guessing neither are most of your readers.

Won't swap out the globalwin, sorry, too many tests already completed but there are many alternatives to that fan which offer similar performance/noise.

New roundup will be half/end August, as I'll be short on reviewing time the coming weeks

Well, I am not pleased with the Thermalright 120 forcing me to spend hours of researching for the ideal fan. Any suggestions (that don't require plastic bands...) for max performance with a no case set-up?

The Silentator feels like a complete, high performing, not deaf-making loud product.

you can buy the fan used on that one separately, or you can "mod" a globalwin, all it takes is a saw and 10min time

As an expert which one between the:

- Tuniq Tower 120
- Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme
- Cooling Silentator

best suits an open set-up meant for some serious overclocking?

Thank you jmke. I bought one and I have these 2 fans:

- Xilence Red Wing 120mm
- AcoustiFan: DustPROOF 120mm

What do you think? Good choices?
