Heatsink



Included with the CPU cooler are different clips, which make it compatible with Intel's P4 and AMD's K7 and K8.

Installation

Installation uses a strong clip-on mechanism and is easy to do. The only tricky part is getting the second clip on while not moving the heatsink around on the CPU.

Value and Conclusion

  • The POLO12 is selling for about $70 which is a fair price, considering that you get a whole package.
  • All-in-one package.
  • Nice looking.
  • High-Quality PSU, which is quiet
  • PSU has long, sleeved cables
  • PSU has SATA and lots of other connectors
  • CPU cooler performance could be better, fan is too loud
  • 120mm fan is very noisy
8.0This kit is a nice all-around package for the basic user and seasoned overclocker at a good price. The die-hard overclocker definitely wants to pick components one-by-one, so this kit does not make too much sense for this user group.The best part of this package is without any doubt the PSU.
