Kolink also wants to convince gamers with several (strongly) overclocked graphics cards, professional overclockers as well as operators of rendering platforms and workstations with quality and value for money. With high-end models of the upper watt class and 80 plus platinum efficiency, Kolink is in no way inferior to the brands better known in Germany.
For such performance Kolink relies on first-class technology: While a circuit based on LLC resonance conversion is used in the primary area, the manufacturer relies on DC-DC technology with independent voltage regulation in the secondary area. This benefits both the efficiency and the precision of the power supply, especially with asymmetric load. Thus, the Continuum power supply with the total nominal power may be loaded on the + 12 volt rail if required. Especially in systems with several main processors and graphics cards are very different load conditions commonplace - good that Kolink has designed the new top series from the outset on extreme scenarios.
Permanent operation of such high-performance hardware is an expensive pleasure anyway, since electricity costs are proportional to the power consumption of the components. With the Kolink Continuum power supply, the additional costs compared to standard systems can be reduced somewhat: The particularly high efficiency meets the requirements of 80 Plus Platinum and thus exceeds 92/90/89 percent at 50/20/100 percent load (at 115 volts input voltage ). Efficiency continues to increase in the European 230-volt grid. Compared to simpler power supplies with gold certification, the Kolink Continuum therefore saves a good 35 watts. In addition, the waste heat is minimized, which benefits the cooling and extends the life of the entire computer.
Kolink chooses quality for component assembly, only 105-degree Japanese-brand electrics and polymer-solid capacitors are installed. The name of the Continuum series stands for lasting and trouble-free operation. The necessary air flow for cooling at medium and high load is provided by a particularly slow rotating 135-millimeter fan with a particularly durable double ball bearing. At low utilization and low ambient temperature, the fan is completely silent - natural convection ensures sufficient cooling of the high-quality components. Kolink's entry into the high-end segment can not only convince with voltage quality, but also with relatively low operating noise and good cooling. The manufacturer's warranty of five years corresponds to the current standard of the upper class.
A clear highlight of the Kolink Continuum C1500PL is the gigantic equipment with connections: In addition to the 20 + 4-pin ATX connector for the board, two 4 + 4 pin pin 12V EPS connectors can power up to two high processors , For the graphics cards are twelve twelve 6 + 2-pin PCIe connectors on a total of eight cable harnesses ready. Even render setups with twelve performance GPUs can be operated without adapter-craft solutions. At the same time, there are enough individual connections available for overclocking projects to eliminate the overload of cables and sockets. The other components are supplied with eight SATA and four-pin Molex connectors. This allows each power unit of the new Continuum series to perform permanently. Apart from gaming PCs, Kolink also targets other customers who are looking for lasting top performance. A successful entry into the market for high-end power supplies!
For the benefit of the environment, the manufacturer dispenses with the supply of a power cord for the mains connection.
