Introduction

 

GlacialTech started in 2001 when eight PHD researchers specializing in thermal theory and three factory owners came together to form a total thermal solution provider. Since then the company has taken light weight materials and merged them with low noise parts whilst using a low cost manufacturing process to deliver low cost high efficiency products. As of today GlacialTech has produced power supplies, HTPC and server chassis', fans and also one of the types of products we will be looking at today, CPU coolers.

 

The GlacialTech IGLOO 5610 Series is much like the 5710 Series we looked at just a few days ago, two identical heatsinks with the choice of fan as the variable that makes up the Silent and PWM version. The 5710 we looked at featured three heatpipes, and the 5610 we will be testing today only has two.

 

The specifications for the 5610 is lower than that of the 5710 so we are not going to be looking at stellar performance numbers, but honestly how low can a product line go. The 5710 were not great performers and border the low end of what a modern day CPU should use for aftermarket cooling performance. With that said though, let's have a look at the specs and see if the GlacialTech 5610 can surprise us.
