Arguably almost 90% of the products we test in RWL have the mid to high end consumer in mind which is quite natural since most of the times they are the ones to put time in researching what’s best for their needs. I guess it’s somewhat logical to gather a few opinions prior to spending hundreds of dollars/euros on something. In any case from time to time we do test entry level devices and today we are here for that exact reason since in our hands today we have the Igloo 5760 PWM CPU Cooler by GlacialTech.
GlacialTech Inc. was established in June 2001 by a team of 8 world-class researchers (PHDs) and three factory owners. Its technological areas of expertise include specialized thermal theory, soldering and mounting technologies, mechanism design, test and verification environment build-up and advanced conduct material development. As a total thermal solution provider, GlacialTech is committed to using lighter weight materials, lower noise and lower manufacturing cost to deliver superior cooling solutions. All this has brought about the increased value for our customers with lighter system board loading, quiet working environment and optimal price performance. Price performance, noise performance and weight performance are our three cooling design philosophy. Having acquired ISO 9001 and 14001, GlacialTech commits itself to using green materials for its products designs and to perfecting green manufacturing processes in manufacturing its products. GlacialTech offers two kinds of standard and customized cooling solutions. The standard cooling solutions deal with the CPU coolers for desktop and server PC system, PC case fan, VGA coolers and other accessory cooling products. The customized cooling solutions are furnished with applications for specialized PC barebones system, notebook, consumer products and telecommunication products.
The Glacialtech Igloo 5760 PWM CPU Cooler is not ment for the hardcore or normal overclocker, instead it is targeted towards two different market segments, HTPC and entry level users. On one hand HTPC users normally require a cheap and low-profile solution for their systems while entry level users want something just a little bit better than the stock CPU Cooler and of course at a very low price point. Well the Igloo 5760 PWM fits both descriptions but does not leave much room for anything more than that.
