GlacialTech seems to be ready with its Igloo series models for the upcoming Intel LGA-1156 socket. Igloo coolers are traditionally stock heatsink replacements that are at best slightly better than the cooler the processor ships with, ideal for OEMs. GlacialTech has two models ready this time: the smaller Igloo 1050, and the larger Igloo 1100. The two measure 95x95x57 mm and 95x95x67 mm, and weigh in at 310 g and 380 g, respectively. The two are mounted with an 80 mm PWM controlled fan. These should be out in the market by the time the first LGA-1156 processors arrive, and that's five weeks from now. Variant details follow. 1050 Light - 2600 RPM (maximum fan working speed) | 35.5 CFM (airflow) | 25 dBA (sound output) 1050 Light(E) - 2600 RPM | 35.5 CFM | 25 dBA 1050 Light (2B ) - 2600 RPM | 35.5 CFM | 25 dBA 1050 - 3200 RPM | 44.1 CFM | 32 dBA 1050(E) - 3200 RPM | 44.1 CFM | 32 dBA 1050 (2B ) - 3200 RPM | 44.1 CFM | 32 dBA 1050 PWM - 3600 RPM | 50 CFM | 15 ~ 38 dBA 1050PWM(E) - 3600 RPM | 50 CFM | 15 ~ 38 dBA 1050 PWM (2B ) - 3600 RPM | 50 CFM | 15 ~ 38 dBA 1100 Silent - 2000 RPM | 26 CFM | 20 dBA 1100 Silent(E) - 2000 RPM | 26 CFM | 20 dBA 1100 Silent(2B ) - 2000 RPM | 26 CFM | 20 dBA 1100 Light - 2600 RPM | 35.5 CFM | 25 dBA 1100 Light(E) - 2600 RPM | 35.5 CFM | 25 dBA 1100 Light (2B ) - 2600 RPM | 35.5 CFM | 25 dBA 1100 - 3200 RPM | 44.1 CFM | 32 dBA 1100(E) - 3200 RPM | 44.1 CFM | 32 dBA 1100 (2B ) - 3200 RPM | 44.1 CFM | 32 dBA 1100 PWM - 3600 RPM | 50 CFM | 15 ~ 38 dBA 1100 PWM(E) - 3600 RPM | 50 CFM | 15 ~ 38 dBA 1100 PWM (2B ) - 3600 RPM | 50 CFM | 15 ~ 38 dBA Source: TechConnect Magazine

GlacialTech needs beating down for even releasing these for non-OEM purposes. Keep this on the crappy Dell setups and so on...that's all they are fit for, if that. :shadedshu

Well - I wasn't going to get so mean, but.. um .. yeah .. whats the point in this? Buy a stock cooler to replace your stock cooler? Edit : Ok aiming the air straight down may help a LITTLE , but srsly? Would an OEM want the hassle of fitting extra coolers & ditching the piles of stock coolers? ... maybe if they purchased the cpu's in batch trays and they had no stock coolers to begin with ...
