Swiftech Polaris 120 High Performance CPU Cooler
Posted by newsbot on March 28th 2011



It looks like a few things have changed over at Swiftech since the last time I visited their site and had the pleasure of testing, and still using to this day, the H20-320 kit they introduced back in November of last year. A couple of weeks ago I started getting correspondence of this new cooler in the works from Swiftech, and to my first surprise, it’s an air cooler. Now I’m not positive you all remember the MCX series of air coolers from a few years ago. While the idea was very different, and the thinking was outside of the box in its design, the cooler had limited success, and I don’t remember it being highly recommended as were the other leaders in that day of air cooling.Then came the second surprise! When I saw the cooler design I got a big grin on my face. There are quite a few tricks implemented in this design that I have seen make successful coolers before. To be honest, as I look at this cooler I am reminded of the Thermolab BARAM for the compact nature of the fin arrangement. Then again, I am reminded of coolers like the XtremeGear HP-1216 or SilenX variation of the same design. To say this new cooler “copies” any of those is a bit of a stretch, but I can see the influence of many coolers of days gone by in this design, but that wasn’t good enough for Swiftech.
