Glacialtech Igloo 5750 Silent CPU Cooler
2 July 2008
Summary: First, let’s talk about what is good with this cooler. At about $40.00 US funds it a great near silent alternative to the stock Intel cooler. It has comes with mounting plates to fit the AMD platform as well. It out performs the stock cooler by an adequate margin and would do well for the people that fit into the before mentioned category.
Secondly, let’s talk about what is not so great. The heatpipes are built from a soft material and appear to bend very easily.
Summary: The idea is that one relatively low RPM fan is going to have a hard time maintaining a good volume of airflow through the heatsinks' fins, so the second helps draw the warmed air through and alleviate any loss in velocity.
Conclusion: The Igloo 5750 is designed as a low noise cooler and it does perform this task fairly well. In testing it did outperform Intel’s stock cooler with reduced noise levels and even allowed for a slightly better overclock. GlacialTech has also priced the 5750 quite well at around $40CAD so it you are looking for a budget-minded cooling solution, this heatsink should warranty a second glance.
