Immediately Kolink would convince gamers with multiple (strong) overclocked graphics cards as well as operators of rendering platforms and workstations with quality and price-performance. With around 1,200 watts real continuous power and 80 Plus Platinum efficiency Kolink is by now the more famous in Germany brands in nothing.
For such power is Kolink on upper-class technology: While in the primary region is a double-forward circuit for use, the manufacturer in the secondary area on DC-DC technology with independent Spannungsgregulation. This benefits both the efficiency and the precision of the power supply, especially in case of asymmetrical load. So the Continuum power supply may be loaded with the total rated power at + 12V rail if required. Especially for systems with multiple CPUs and graphics cards widely varying load conditions are commonplace - well that Kolink designed the new top model from the outset on extreme scenarios.
Continued use in such high-performance hardware is anyway a costly affair, eventually falling electricity costs in proportion to the consumption of the components. By Kolink Continuum power supply can be reduced somewhat the additional costs compared to standard systems: The particularly high efficiency satisfy the requirements of 80 Plus Platinum and therefore exceeds 92/90/89 50/20/100 percent percent load (at 115 volts input voltage ). In the European 230-volt power efficiency continues to increase. Compared to simpler power supplies with Gold certification the Kolink Continuum therefore saves at least a 25 Watt. In addition, the waste heat is minimized, the cooling benefits and extends the life.
When mounting components Kolink chooses quality, exclusively 105 degree capacitors Japanese brands are built. The name of the Continuum series finally stands for durable and trouble-free operation for the necessary air flow for cooling ensures a particularly slow rotating 140-mm fan with golf ball-surface and highly durable double ball bearings. Kolinks entry into high-end segment may therefore not only convince with power quality, but also with a very low operating noise with good cooling. The manufacturer's warranty of five years corresponding to the current standard of the superclass.
A clear highlight of Kolink Continuum C1200PL is the gigantic facilities with connections: In addition to the 20 + 4-pin ATX connector for the board to each a 4 + 4-pin and one 8-pin 12V connector to EPS two high-processors provide. For the graphics cards all twelve 6 + 2-pin PCIe connectors are available in six harnesses. Even render setups with six high-end GPUs can be operated without an adapter-craft solutions. The other components are supplied with eight SATA and 4-pin Molex connectors. Thus, the first power supply of the new Continuum series permanently provide special services. A successful entry into the market for high-end power supplies!
