Coolink H2T Heatsink Review
This time around
we have a new manufacturer on the test bench and I think some surprising results
will come to light. Coolink Corp. were not previously known to us until we got an
offer from www.xtwerkz.com to take a look
at few of this manufacturers heatsinks. Starting with the Coolink H2T, we will be seeing an
aluminum heatsink which has been nickel plated and then dip brazed onto a copper base
If you've seen any of thermalright's heatsinks you
should get the basic idea of what were about to look at. By itself the basic
aluminum extrusion looks something like the Globalwin TAK68, but Coolink have
taken the additional step of adding a very simple 4mm thick punched out copper
base plate. The point of this plate is to spread the thermal energy across the
entire base area.
Does this technique work? Will the Coolink H2T
prove itself to be one of those heatsinks we really ought to think about getting
for a future upgrade? Well, we're just about to find out.

It's also worth
noting that the heatsink uses two fans, one on either side for
cooling redundancy - at least according to the box ;-) The fans are
little 15mm ones, so the noise levels here are rather moderate compared to if say
the heatsink used high RPM coolers.
