H20-220 Edge  Kit review: "The Swiftech H20-220 Edge kit not only looks like a custom water cooling kit but it performs like it as well. We were pleasantly surprised as to how easy the kit was to install and get up and running" - July 2011

Polaris 120 Review:  "In summary, the Swiftech Polaris 120 does perform very well for its price point. If you were in the market for a mid-range cooler, I would consider this an excellent product for the price. Just make sure you have ample free time to install it properly. As a final perk, The Polaris 120 does look pretty nice once it’s installed, too." June 2011

Polaris 120 Review: "In testing, sure success is what we observed. Able to handle a hexacore processor overclocked and overvolted, side-by-side with a top of the line liquid cooling kit like the H20-320 Edge, the Polaris 120 does what few other air coolers could do" - May 2011

Polaris 120 Review: "It's great to see Switech jump back into the air cooling arena, and they've brought their sharp sense of design style to the Polaris. If you're looking for a sexy air cooling solution that will handle some mild-to-moderate overclocking, the Swiftech Polaris 120 is a good choice." - May 2011

Polaris 120 Review:  "The Polaris 120 surely does not look as mass or impressive as some other coolers out in the market, but it surely is a fantastic CPU cooler with such outstanding performance that we could easily say it is one of the best single 120mm fan CPU coolers that we have tested so far. It managed to outperform giants like the Noctua NH-C14. MSRP of Polaris 120 is around 59USD and it is not expensive at all for a complete set of a tower CPU cooler. Furthermore it comes with high quality PWM intelligent fan which helps to gain performance and low temps.." April 2011

Overclockers Online Editor's Choice Award
Polaris 120 Review: "Swiftech’s name may have fallen out of enthusiast thoughts for air cooling, but the Polaris 120 is poised to put their name right back in the conversation. The Polaris 120 is certainly worth the look if you are looking for high end air cooling. " Mar 2011

Tweaktown's Editor's Choice Award
Polaris 120 Review:  "This cooler may not offer the flashy LEDs, or a huge plastic shroud that takes up a ton of room with little effect. This is simply the right amount of cooler to get the job done, and get the job done well. Of course, it has its attractive points. The white fan blades would make this an attractive addition to any Fractal case, but with the simple black and white theme of the cooler, there isn't really a system the Polaris 120 won't make an attractive addition to...Taking advantage of all the trends and tricks of the trade spawned a real winner with the Polaris 120. There isn't one aspect about this cooler that made me think "why did they do that" or "this cooler could really use this". There just isn't anything they missed here." Mar 2011

"..Swiftech has taken one of the most popular water cooling pumps [The MCP355], added smart PWM speed control features, reprogrammed the RPM scaling for even higher performance, and included a very well designed pump top. All of this comes in a factory warranty package, very nice!" - Feb 2011


"To sum it up in a simple phrase, the MCP35X is a big deal. [..] PWM control of your pump is the game changer here. [..] The ability to change speeds when load/temperature increases without having to manually adjust the settings is a godsend, and now we can do this with our pump too… that is huge! [...] The MCP35X is the best overall performing Laing pump I have tested to date..." Jan 2011

" Dec 2010
