The name Coolink isn't one that is particularly familiar to hardware enthusiasts, especially considering it is mostly available within the European market. Fortunately, name recognition or not, the company has been manufacturing specialty computer cooling products in the OEM sector since 1996; well before companies like Thermaltake and Zalman entered the market in 1999. Not only does Taiwan's Coolink (or, rather, "Kolink International Corporation") have plenty of experience, but they are actually 50% of the industry's most highly regarded company. It turns out that Noctua is actually a joint venture between Kolink and the Austrian "Rascom Computer Distribution GmbH". With so much experience and a stable research & development platform, it will be exciting to see how Coolink's SWiF2 1201 fan performs against other, common case cooling solutions - both in terms of performance, noise, and cost. We will also be taking a look at the 120P, marketed as a silent, but powerful CPU cooling fan. Unlike most fans within its market segment, it also has the ability to quietly operate at 1700 RPM - besting the traditional 1200 RPM seen in competing products. Hopefully, with such interesting technology and an affordable price point, the two Coolink products will make the grade during our extensive testing.
