    Here is the first EVGA-branded CPU air cooler, the EVGA SuperClock. Based on the design of Swiftech Polaris 120, the EVGA SuperClock uses nearly the same materials, but uses black-colored fins and heat pipes, apart from an illuminated fan. Like the original, the main heatsink consists of a heat pipe direct contact base, where the five heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU, the pipes in the central portion of the base (which receive most of the heat), propagate from a portion of the aluminum fin array that gets the maximum airflow. The heatsink is ventilated by a 120 mm spinner that lights up red, spins at 750 - 2500 RPM, pushing up to 84 CFM of air. At US $49.99, it's cheaper than the Swiftech Polaris 120, that's priced at $59.99 on the company store.

    EVGA? its what called news
    its kinda unusual EVGA run into cooler device that aint connected to their previous stuff like vga or motherboard
    or maybe EVGA wants to follow HIS with their cooler solution in the future

    When I first look at it and skimed over it.. I thought XFX, then a quick double take, no it's EVGA!

    The red fan will sell big with the Green Team EVGA fanbio's. :banghead:
    Damn_Smooth says thanks.

    You really don't?

    AMD = ATI
    EVGA = Nvidia exclusive

    Nvidia is competition of ATI

    Evga + AMD = Nvidia not to happy

    okay retarded this cooler has nothing to do with AMD Nvidia etc is a company branching out and offering different items for sale

    no different then PNY whom sells PNY whom sells ram
    or Sapphire that sells motherboards and powersupplies

    EVGAs own x58 boards support xfire

    so can we leave the god damn gpu bs at the door its a CPU cooler its a rebaged Swiftech Polaris with a red fan. whoop de do.

    Nvidia wont care if you have a damn EVGA cooler. no one cares period just another cpu cooler that dosent really distinguish itself in a crowded market.

    The mounting system and the dimpled fins tell me it has a high possibility of being a Spire product.
