Coolink Presents "Silentator" High-Performance Cooler

Coolink today presented a new high-performance cooler for Intel and AMD processors called "Silentator". The Silentator employs 3 high-performance heat-pipes, 37 aluminium cooling fins with a surface area of more than 3500cm² as well as a SWiF-1202 quality fan, providing top-class cooling performance at a minimum noise emission of only 14dB(A). The Silentator is equipped with the professional SecuFirm mounting system that guarantees optimal contact pressure and maximum security thanks to the use of a backplate and spring-loaded screws. As a result, the SecuFirm mounting system makes it possible to safely transport the assembled system without any risk even though the cooler exceeds the 450g weight specification established by Intel and AMD. The Silentator is available with immediate effect in versions for Intel LGA 775, for AMD AM2 and for AMD K8 (754, 939, 940). The suggested retail price is EUR 39,90 / USD 49,90.

I don't know about you....but that's Noctua's NH-U12 + Coolink SWiF-1202 fan to me, so no reviews needed...just look at the Noctua's performance.

quick google search only reveals euro sites that are announcing it. no reviews up yet, I'd like to see how it compares to the other great options cooling companies are coming out with, like Thermalright, Tuniq, and Scythe.

Though you've got to admit, "Silentator 3000" or some-other kind of numerical ending would have made it much stupider.

or adding an "XL" or "GT" or some other combination of two absolutly random letters with no meaning what-so-ever...

i can already see it now... "Silentator 10000 FQ"...

"Further digging on Noctua's web site uncovered the reason for the multiple identities: The Noctua is the result of a collaboration between the Austrian distributor Rascom and Taiwanese heatsink OEM Kolink (note the phonetic similarity of "Kolink" and "Coolink"... and "Cooling")."

http://www.silentpcreview.com/article295-page1.html

They are the same heatsink, coolink versions just used to come with a fan, but now also noctua comes with one.

edit: this is propably just the version where you can mount the baseplate 2 ways, like the new version of noctuas (and it is as it has holes one the long ends.)

I have a hunch they tried to go for Silent (heat)Terminator, thus Silentator. Hey it's made of metal like T-800, not Titanium-tungsten, but metal still, so why not :) Now package it with liquid metal heat paste and you can think that the paste is T-1000. Now him and termin..silentator are fighting on top of hot ass T-X and if they lose reac..prosessor core will melt down :P

I have the noctua HSF combo mentioned - it really does look the same, even the screw holes in the sides and the fan clips are identical!

thats the first word that popped in to my head before I even click on the topic! the real question here is what difference does this cooler have over other similar coolers??? why should we buy this one instead of any of the others? Or is the manufacturer just trying to jump on the bandwagon?

Silent knight is pretty original imho...
