Until recently, EVGA's product portfolio has been pretty much limited to graphics cards and motherboards, but the company is now seeking to make its entrance into other market segments with the newly launched Superclock CPU cooler.
Judging by its external aspect and design, EVGA's CPU cooler seems to be just a re-branded version of the Swiftech built Polaris 120, with just an all black heatsink paintjob and a new LED fan.
This measures 120mm in diameter and it can provide up to 84CFM of airflow at its maximum rotation speed of 2500RPM, while at its slowest speed (750RPM) EVGA states it produces 26CFM.
The airflow generated by the fan is then directed through two separate air channels, which are specially designed to first cool the hottest of the Superclock's heat pipes.
These are five in number and all of them measure 8mm in diameter and use the Direct Touch technology.
What this basically means is that the heat pipes are touching the CPU's heatspreader in order to maximize the amount of heat that is passed to the heatsink.
By using this design, EVGA states that it was able to improve the performance of the cooler significantly and states that the Superclock can be up to 20 degrees cooler in full load than Intel's Core i7 stock cooler (the company didn't state which CPU they used for testing).
EVGA designed the Superclock so that it would use a universal mounting system which can be used with both Intel's and AMD's motherboards, including models that feature the LGA 1155, LGA 1366 or AM2+/AM3 sockets.
The EVGA Superclock is shipped together with all the required mounting accessories and with a pack of thermal grease. Its price has been set at $49.99, which makes it $10 less expensive than its twin brother, the Swiftech Polaris 120.
