The Silentator: it's name speaks for itself

At 153mm x 126mm x 85mm and 640g, the Coolink Silentator has a rather large presence.  With it's prepackaged fan, it moves 90CFM @ 24dB making it essentially silent in most systems.  OCC expected performance similar to other heatsinks that focus on noise reduction, and received a pleasant surprise.

"Being a reviewer, Coolink has provided me with 3 different mounting kits and a required mounting kit (pressure springs

and fastening brackets). These were for LGA 775, AM2 and K8 (754, 939 and 940). However, as a consumer, you must choose

which kit you need before purchasing, as the Silentator will be available in one of these three varieties. Coolink also

provide a mounting bracket for a fan controller, as well as a long steel screwdriver with a 90 degree bend in it. This

is required for mounting in some cases, as the mounting bolt must be accessed from through the cooler itself (seen

later). Some extra goodies include a 3-pin fan to Molex adaptor (in the event that you don’t have a spare motherboard

3-pin header), some thermal paste and a second fan mounting kit. The Silentator allows for two 120mm fans to be

attached. Very generous. Finally, a lovely booklet is included with a rubbery case sticker. The book was the part that

made me laugh – '...my computer is so silent that I can hear the snowflakes falling.'"
