Our first look at the IGLOO 5710 is of the face of the unit with the PWM fan attached. GlacialTech uses a 12 inch lead on the fan wires for both PWM and Silent versions. You can also see the heatsink that is mounted on the bottom just above the heatpipes. The cooler comes with Intel mounting hardware installed from the factory.
From the side you can see the three heatpipes and the fairly slim design of the cooler.
A view from the back shows that it is possible to add a second 92mm which may give the cooler better performance. In our Noctua NH-U12P review we found that adding a second fan did improve performance, but also made the cooler louder.
The other side of the cooler is identical to the side we have shown you already.
From the factory both coolers came equipped with a layer of thermal compound.
After removing the compound we find that the IGLOO 5710 does not come with a CPU contact area that has been grounded down to a mirror surface. It is debatable how much of a performance gain can be achieved by using a perfectly smooth surface, but nearly all of the experts agree that having one certainly helps performance.
If you are not familiar with the 4-pin PWM connector that is becoming standard on many fan designs, here is an image shown with a 3-pin that is found on the 5710 Silent model.
