Compatibility and Installation Tips
Coolink Corator DS is compatible with all contemporary platforms, but we don’t think we need to dwell on its installation details, because it uses the exact same retention as the already reviewed Noctua NH-D14 cooler and therefore should be installed in exactly the same way. Although the retention kit is simple, it requires the mainboard to be removed from the system case, and is very reliable. When we installed Coolink Corator DS onto an LGA1366 processor, it proved to be 2-3°C more efficient when installed as follows:
In this case all four copper heatpipes are positioned the same way, which as we know is better for effective heat transfer. I would like to add that the distance from the lower heatsink plate to the cooler base is 41 mm, so Corator DS is highly unlikely to interfere with any heatsinks on the voltage regulator components surrounding the processor socket.
