Coolink GFXChilla

 

Coolink doesn't have many products available at this time but they are destined to grow in 2008. Their Silentator CPU Cooler is one of my favorites and I am optimistic for the GFXChilla. The GFXChilla uses four 6mm heatpipes that move GPU heat to an aluminum fin area cooled by two thin 80mm fans. The system only takes up two slots so in most cases you can maintain your current PCI card arrangement.

Product Images

 

 

Coolink want to make a statement on the front of their package, and that statement is all inclusive. Not only do you see the two 80mm blue fans in a window, it says right on the front that VRM and memory cooling is in the box.

 

 

The back of the package shows a nice illustration of the cooler and lists many of the features.

 

 

The top of the cooler is all fans, with nothing else poking out.

 

 

On the bottom is a copper base with the four heatpipes that run to a tightly packed fin area.

 

 

Here we see even placement of the heatpipes and that the cooler is actually very thin, only taking up two slots with the graphics card installed.

 

 

The fins are not very tall, we will have to see if this affects performance when we get into testing.

 

 

Coolink includes a small tube of their thermal paste as well as memory and VRM heatsinks that already have thermal tape applied to them. A 3-pin to 4-pin adapter is included in the package also.
