The manufacturer Kolink started in 2002 in Hungary with the sale of low-priced computer peripherals to hardware resellers. After the takeover by another owner in 2014, the range and portfolio were significantly expanded and Kolink has now gained Europe-wide recognition. The focus is now on the development of cases, power supplies and corresponding accessories. The products should primarily convince with a low price but a high-quality workmanship at the same time.
Two years ago and last month respectively, we tested two ITX cases from Kolink with the Rocket and the Rocket V2. Despite the chic look due to the use of aluminum, we were able to find certain weaknesses in the cooling of both cases. However, Kolink takes a slightly different approach with the Rocket Heavy. The Rocket Heavy offers more space for hardware due to a larger volume and should convince with a different layout and cooling concept. By reducing the aluminum elements, the price could also be reduced to 110 Euros. Whether the Kolink Rocket Heavy is recommendable at this price, you can find out in this review.
