You can imagine my surprise then when I received the notice that I would be reviewing a new air-cooled heatsink from Swiftech, the Polaris 120. Offering a complete departure from their previous Helicoid pin designs, the Polaris takes on a more modern look, featuring a 120mm fan and vertical cooling fin tower, with direct touch copper heatpipes. The mounting attachment is via a robust bolt-through design, and the included PWM fan flows up to 84CFM. Swiftech claims other advancements such as wind tunnel design for optimum air flow and velocity.
Join me as I take a closer look at the Swiftech Polaris 120 cooler.
