Introduction

Igloo 5750 is a CPU cooler from GlacialTech featuring four heat-pipes and two 92-mm fans and is available in two versions, Silent, with no speed control, and PWM, with speed automatically controlled by the system. We took a look at Igloo 5750 Silent.

The four heat-pipes connect the cooler base to a small radiator, which is cooled by two 92-mm fans, one at each side of the radiator, see Figure 3. These fans are “1B1S,” i.e., a hybrid solution using one ball bearing and one sleeved bearing at the same time. The disadvantage of this solution is that it provides a higher noise level compared to other designs.

The cooler comes prepared to be installed on socket LGA775 CPUs. If you have an AMD CPU you will need to manually replace the cooler clips.
