I must admit that I have been really impressed by the Coolink ChipChilla throughout this review. The build quality of the chipset cooler is very good apart from the slighty 'cheap' looking cooling fan. The inclusion of a braided and shrink-wrapped fan cable does the unit further justice. Furthermore; the installation of the Coolink ChipChilla was a painless affair in general, but please be mindful of potential compatibility issues with large CPU coolers.
The performance of the Coolink ChipChilla was equally as good as the Noctua NC-U6 in both passive and active testing. Which is something to be proud of, as the NC-U6 is certainly no slouch when it comes to quiet and efficient cooling.
Whilst I wasn't able to find the Coolink ChipChilla available with any of our recommended retailers, I did manage to find it for £16.00 inc VAT
at Quiet PC
which is still cheaper than the Noctua NC-U6 price of £16.43 inc VAT
. When you consider that you get very quiet active cooling with the Coolink ChipChilla as an added bonus, it certainly makes a compelling argument.
* Quality build
* Can handle both passive and active duties
* Near silent
* Cheap feeling fan
* May have issues with larger CPU coolers
* Nothing to report
OC3D would like to thank Coolink
for providing today's review sample.
