Coolink U1P2 HSF Review - U1P2 HSF - Page 4

Not too many people have heard of a company by the name of Coolink, but that may change in the very near future. This company is creating some new heatsinks that aim at the overclocking crowd, but can they succeed? Come join Mike "Darthtanion" Wright as he takes a look at one of this fledgling company's coolers; namely the U1P2 HSF. Its a strange name for a strange looking cooler, but the bottom line is results, and you may just have to take a second look when you see how it performs.

Conclusion

 

Let's go over what we have here today. We have a HSF that is huge, has two quality fans, and sounds like it wants to take off when you boot up your system. We also have a cooler that performs like a champion on steroids. All this from a relative newcomer to the performance cooling game.

 

Now while the performance is outstanding, this cooler isn't without its flaws. If you don't adjust the heatsink backwards when installing, it could result in it not being in full contact with the processor core. And like I have stated before, it is LOUD! But many of us who have used quality heatsinks before have come to expect the noise, so this isn't too much of an issue.

 

Because of the youth of the Coolink Company, pricing isn't yet available for these heatsinks. I have, however, been in contact with some of the people who work for Coolink and I'm estimating that the entry fee will be very acceptable. I'm guessing that they will be priced in about the mid-level of heatsink prices. Not too bad for a cooler that does an excellent job.

 

Bottom line...If you want a HSF that performs well under pressure (and who doesn't), then take a look at this one. It offers up superb cooling at what looks like will be a very reasonable price. Though a bit on the loud side, the results should make up for the added volume.
