    The thing is 2c behind the slightly larger noctua cooler which also costs a lot more.******

    Not bad!


    ****** Only according to this review, they're is quite a lot of reviews on this cooler now, be sure to google for more before making a purchase : ]

    Hell by the looks of it, some long paper clips might do the trick. Pretty much what the factory clips look like :laugh:

    So what is the USD price tag on that?

    Apparently isn't available here, and I don't feel like paying to get it imported lol If I had the money for that I'd just get a better one like a TRUE or something :laugh:

    Its better then the True by the way.

    True is overrated IMO had the True 120 EX and was completely underwhelmed by its performance.

    My xigy 1283 was nearly as good and cost half as much ( and it came with a fan)


    But that's a shame you can't get the thing in the US : [


    Over here it retails for £49.99 ( same price as thermalright ifx-14 which comes with no fan and the coolink outperforms it) Compared to the Noctua DH-14 ( Current best aircooler you can buy) which retails for £75 ( the Coolink is only 1 c behind this cooler)

    The Noc cooler is epic by the by here's one in someones rig

    LMAO Geeze That's a cooler for sure :p

    Yea Tagan is hard to find here too :\ There were 2 on eBay but one was missing like 1/2 the cables -_- I've been searching high and low for PSUs but not having much good luck there, sadly my non-existent budget can't fit much, but I'm keeping my eye on eBay for everything haha Even debating getting a server Hot-Swappable PSU and soldering on all my own wires :p Just because they're cheap and I know it'd be reliable.

    The corator is only a wee bit smaller

    [​IMG]

    The top end air coolers are an insane kinda big ha ha



    managed to find another review where it doesn't quite match the noc but still, beats everything else but the noc

    That one looks much more reasonable though. I never even upgraded to the better stock heatpipe S939 cooler, so I've never gotten to experience a really BIG cooler. The biggest one I've seen so far is actually the stocker that came in my neighbors Hewlett-Packard S754 Sempron 3100+, which is bigger than my S939 that came with the X2 3800+ heh

    Makes me wonder why they haven't gone from the typical fins to what you see on radiators. Seeing as they are trying to do their best for disrupting airflow (making it turbulent) like what that Carator appears to be doing with those dimples. :p

    I've always wondered why they don't zigzag the fins as well, it would add so much more surface area in the same space.

    Just finished testing the coolink with two fans on either side of the first tower near the ram....had to use rubber bands to keep the fans in place....did quite decent for the price, but was around 3 degrees of the Venemous with the same configuration.
     
    pantherx12 says thanks.

    That link you posted for temps is very misleading, in fact by that set of numbers your cooler is almost a full 10 degrees hotter than said Noctua when both coolers are tested out of the box. Not a good cooler IMHO.

    Adding 2 more fans helps though apparently and then with just strapping on 2 fans (which most folks will have around) you have to factor in the price difference between them. Wouldn't that really even up the playing field? I mean, that is still depending on what exactly the DS pulls off for temps with tri fan.

    Just an observation, 10*C out of the box is well worth a bit more out of my wallet.

    For me it depends on the cost because I'm broke as hell :\ I can't even get a PSU or CPU for my AM3 upgrade right now :(

    Thought also it boils down to if that review results can be trusted, ya know?

    But if you consider a true just out the box gets beaten by most other air coolers, it doesn't come with a fan at all after all :laugh:

    Lots of other factors to consider when buying cooling .

    General relative performance to other coolers
    Price/ performance ratio
    Size-weight/ performance ratio


    The Noc is pimp daddy not going to argue with that :laugh: but it is rather expensive.

    At the moment if I was to pick up an air cooler I'd get the Tuniq Tower Extreme as its on sale @ ebuyer :laugh: 35 quid was 50 XD


    I would love to see a revision of the corator with some different fin lengths ( maybe 30mm wide and 32mm wide alternating) to add cheap airflow breakup ( like the noc does by having jaged edges) and also another 2 heatpipes.

    I really think the base has some potential you see : ]

    Really?


    Why don't they mention that on their website?

    Saying they're owned by Noc would probably boost sales after all :laugh:

    Also Remember Thermalright came out with the dual tower design first. ( or at-least before Noctua)

    As an owner of the Tuniq, make sure you buy a better fan as well. The one I recieved was poo on the stocker, didnt get what I would call satisfactory temps until I slapped in the Scythe Jyuni.

    I get your point but think of this, I have 2 38mm, 3000RPM fans that I have strapped to my NOC, and it takes stock numbers down by 7*C, but I wouldnt use those numbers to show you, as it isnt the way its made to be used;)

    Point being with a ton of fans sitting around my house, the right combination of them and a cooler, I can MAKE any cooler look as good as a Noc.

    Precisely how I do things too :cool:

    Cheers for the tip :toast:, gota say I rarely use stock fans on anything, I'm fussy :laugh:

    Hell I'm disappointed by my 5770 because my choice of after market cooling is limited XD
