This is the new Swiftech Polaris 120 Heatsink and CPU cooler we will be reviewing today. This is an air-cooler that retails for about 60 dollars, making it Swiftech's re-entry into the mainstream air-cooling arena. It is compatible with every common Intel and AMD CPU socket on the market, which includes the new Intel Socket 1155 for the Intel's Sandy Bridge processors.
At it's budget price, the Swiftech Polaris 120 Heatsink has quite a lot of competition to contend with. We are going to see how it stacks up to other entry level, high performance AMD and Intel CPU Coolers in the market.
