GlacialTech have successfully build a very cheap, easy to install and good looking little CPU cooler; it is mostly intended for environments that do not imply overclocking. In the performed tests, however, even if on the package it was listed that the i5 750 CPU is supported with its stock 2.66GHz frequency, I could do 3.2GHz without problems at all and with decent temperatures too, in both IDLE and Full Load.
At first I want to thank the GlacialTech
for making a review of their Igloo 5760
CPU Cooler possible.
About the GlacialTech Company
GlacialTech Inc. was established in June 2001 by a team of 8 world-class researchers (PHDs) and three factory owners. Its technological areas of expertise include specialized thermal theory, soldering and mounting technologies, mechanism design, test and verification environment build-up and advanced conduct material development.
As a total thermal solution provider, GlacialTech is committed to using lighter weight materials, lower noise and lower manufacturing cost to deliver superior cooling solutions. All this has brought about the increased value for our customers with lighter system board loading, quiet working environment and optimal price performance. Price performance, noise performance and weight performance are our three cooling design philosophy. Having acquired ISO 9001 and 14001, GlacialTech commits itself to using green materials for its products designs and to perfecting green manufacturing processes in manufacturing its products.
GlacialTech offers two kinds of standard and customized cooling solutions. The standard cooling solutions deal with the CPU coolers for desktop and server PC system, PC case fan, VGA coolers and other accessory cooling products. The customized cooling solutions are furnished with applications for specialized PC barebones system, notebook, consumer products and telecommunication products.
Heat-pipe cooler is a kind of complex cooling system, where every parameter influences the thermal performance. The important restriction for heat pipe is the filling ratio (F.R) of working fluid. Some heat-pipes show lowest thermal resistance in less thermal design power which is called maximum heat capacity of heat-pipe. After the thermal design power gets over the maximum heat capacity, the thermal resistance starts to rise since the radiator is not powerful enough to cool down the vapor of the cooling end, hence the working fluid can’t return to the evaporator smoothly.
Igloo 5760 use copper base with mirror surface to reduce the contact resistance between CPU and cooler; high precise inserted fin plus 9 cm bullet axial fan are used to be the high efficiency radiator to enhance the thermal cycle of heat-pipe; three 8 mm diameter heat-pipes are used to carry heat from evaporator to radiator since 8mm heat-pipe have larger thermal capacity than 6 mm. The test results show Igloo 5760 delivers better thermal performance (lower thermal resistance) in higher thermal design power, and the CPU temperatures are not over than 79°C when the room temperatures are controlled between 23~25°C.Specifications :Supported CPUs and Clock Speeds:
