Coolink today introduced its new Corator DS CPU-Cooler. Featuring Coolink's exclusive Gapless Direct Touch (GDT) technology that allows for an all copper contact area, the Corator DS brings the concept of direct contact cooling to the next level by further improving heat transfer. Four large 8mm heatpipes, a dual fin stack design and a PWM controlled SWiF2 120mm fan are among the features that enable the Corator DS to achieve an optimal balance between outstanding cooling performance and quiet operation.

Should be good from the design of it !

Damn expensive though I'd rather have a H50 or Domino ALC for a smaller foot print / slightly less performance.

Not for the price it costs the to do it, it may of made very little difference with their cooler in particular.

You have to see things like pre lapping from a business point of view.
Extra processes cost extra money and if the performance gain is not relative to the price its not worth it.

Enthusiasts will lap it anyway, and a lot of people won't care if the performance is still decent.

My only concern with lapping it myself is that the heatpipes are so close to the base (which is a good thing cooling-wise) and I dont want to risk puncturing or sanding through one by accident.

I bet that you couldn't sand it down enough to puncture the pipes with a 1600 grid even if you worked on it 100 hours. Ups, forgot to add where my comment was pointing at. The post above of course.

The machine lines are very fine, and it is very flat.

You could go right to the finest sandpaper to level it out, I don't find mirror shiny necessary as long as its flat its all good.


That being said I do polish the hell out of my heatsinks and such like, but that's just me being a crazy person XD

That is the exact reason I want it mirror finish (ofcourse its not going to stay put with the paste on the cpu, going to slide away he he).

And the price is not cheap either - $60 is kind of expensive.

Only reviews will tell if its worth.

I'll take anyday a flat base over a shiny one. Honestly I would worry more about the quality of the IHS. This is probably the best implementation of the HDT theory. Hope it does well.

+ 1 to this.

Next step is actually having the base a vapour chamber with pipes leading out of it completely seamless.


Feel free to use that idea GPU/CPU cooler companies!

Design looks good.

But in the end, it boils down to the quality of heatpipes...
Anyway. With just 4 of them I doubt it will get anywhere near TRUE.

Cheers,

The heatpipes are 2mm bigger in diameter.

It makes up for the fewer pipes.

If you think Xigmatek 1283s only have 3 pipes and nearly keep up with true 120 x's

Hells this cooler is MUCH bigger then a true by the looks of things as well.

Its more IFX-14 sized judging from the pictures.

Seems very promising.. gapes between direct-touch-heatpipes coolers is serious problem, if they solved it, great..

I have Megashadow (Megahalem in black) and Xigmatek Thor´s Hammer - Megashadow is better, simply cause it does have flat surface without gaps. Ofc you can sand down Thor´s Hammer, but I´m bit afraid that I could sand through heatpipes, which would kill it instantly..

They finally got something right, it's basically HDT without the gaps thanks to a very thin layer of copper.

From the suppliers homepage:

Height (with fan) 155 mm (161 mm)
Width (with fan) 140 mm (146.2 mm)
Depth (with fan) 121 mm (124 mm)

Numbers in brackets are from the Thermalright IFX-14

This looks completely different to the Noc cooler to me sneaky :S


The same basic contruction yes but IFX-14 had that first.

Effective coolers always look the same because there's a certain way of doing things that's more efficient, the companies surely just make little tweeks to out do each other?
It's like redesigning the wheel, its such an effective design already what else can you do?




Look different to me lol

Same two tower design and thats it.

Point wasn't that coolers all end up the same, point was for the price this version is asking, I'd rather get the 6-pipe two fan version for a mere $20 more;)

I'd rather this, mostly out of curiosity mind, I know the noc is amazing, and so does everyone else so people will buy up that, but I like to go for the cheaper ones see how they do :laugh:

As I said the heatpipes do look bigger on this cooler xigmatek style and the 1283s were just behind trues ( both coolers 1 fan)


I'm also really curious as to whether their new base is effective as I would think it is.


I still want a vapour chamber as a base with heatipes coming directly out the vapour chamber, that would be true DTH technology, the process of making it doesn't seem that overly complex in my mind either.

That base looks hard to manufacture.. hence the price tag. Your actually paying extra for the hs base they f*cked up during manufacturing :D
