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 of course CPU Coolers like the ones we will be looking at today.
The GlacialTech IGLOO 5710 Series makes up two of GlacialTech's thirteen current CPU coolers in production. Most of the heatsinks that appear on the GlacialTech website have familiar OEM styling inspiration and I wouldn't be surprised to find that GlacialTech makes OEM coolers for Intel or AMD. The 5710 Series is made up of the 5710 Silent and 5710 PWM with the difference being the type of fan used on this three heatpipe heatsink. The 5710 Series appears to be a middle of the road product with the dual 92mm IGLOO 5750 being the flagship.
The IGLOO 5710 PWM and Silent are low cost solutions so we are not planning on seeing stellar performance numbers from these products, but GlacialTech advertises support for up to 130 watt TDP processors with optimal system cooling. With any luck their 5710 Line will surprise us like the Rosewill Z5 did last month and produce better than average results at a price point that will give us reason to celebrate.
