ITExpo 2002 Coverage - ITExpo 2002 Coverage - Page 12

Recently we had the chance to visit one of Australia's largest computer exhibitions, ITExpo. Unfortunately, being located in Australia means that our computer exhibitions don't get visited by the likes of Bill Gates or Craig Barret, and many of the products displayed are not ground breakingly new. Nevertheless, it is usually a great day out and there are always one or two surprises. Join Asher "Acid" Moses as he determines if ITExpo has got what it takes to compete with the likes of Taiwan's Computex and USA's COMDEX.

- GlacialTech

 

 

The final stand I will be covering in this article is GlacialTech's. Glacialtech had a rather small stand in the corner of the hall, but there were a few interesting products on display that I thought were worth mentioning. One of the ones that caught my eye was their new Igloo 4300 socket 478 cooler. This is an all aluminium cooler that comes with a 5000RPM, 42CFM fan. The heatsink itself has long, thin fins that help increase its surface area. This in turn results in more effective heat dissipation. I was also quite impressed with the clipping mechanism on the unit. It wasn't stiff at all, unlike some previous designs that plagued SocketA systems, and barely any force is required to clip it down onto the CPU socket. GlacialTech also claims that you can install the Igloo 4300 with one hand in under 10 seconds! Of course, I cannot verify this statement as I haven't installed the cooler before, however, judging by my short experiences with the unit I have no reason to believe that this is not true.
