Glacialtech Readies Igloo 5751 PWM CPU Cooler

Glacialtech, known more for its OEM-replacement and value-ended CPU coolers, sometimes takes the time off to release audaciously-designed performance CPU coolers, such as the UFO V51. It seems to be the case with the Igloo 5751 PWM, the latest in the making. The Igloo 5751 PWM uses a CPU base in which four 6 mm thick heat pipes make direct contact with the CPU, capped with an aluminum heatsink, with the heat pipes conveying heat to an aluminum fin array that propagates along the plane of the motherboard, covered with metal plates on four sides, and two 92 mm fans on two.

It measures 100 (W) x 135 (L) x 130 (H) mm, weighing 550 g. The fan on the top spins at 1400 rpm, while the one on the bottom spins at speeds between 800 and 1800 rpm, controllable by PWM. The Igloo 5751 PWM supports all current CPU sockets, including LGA1366, LGA1156, AM3/2(+), and LGA775. A tube of Glacialtech IceTtherm II thermal compound comes bundled. The company did not give out a price, though one can expect it to be moderately priced.

Not bad looking. being that it has DHT I wonder how well it cools.

By the looks of the pipe placement it looks like it's DHT

I'm more interested in how they blocked off the openings on the side of the coolers to prevent air from escaping. That might give it a little bump in performance.

It looks like it would work well enough but I can't see myself liking the colour. I'd rather have something chrome or black, but I guess that's just me.

Also with the metal plates on the side to make air go right through it, it's the same as water cooling in a radiator so it should work alright.

4 heatpipes going to 1 side only - I might have to agree.
Now if they had the pipes going both sides with DHT and 2 fans that might be a different story...

That's why they build things like this:
