Glacialtech Igloo 5761 Silent Heatsink Review Glacialtech Igloo 5761 Silent Heatsink Review
The Igloo 5761 Silent heatsink uses a familiar top-down-fan approach, with three 6mm diameter exposed base heatpipes conducting heat from the CPU to a small thin aluminum fin cooling stack. The cooling fins are topped off by a bright yellow 92x92x25mm PWM vaneaxial fan.

The idea is that one relatively low RPM fan is going to have a hard time maintaining a good volume of airflow through the heatsinks' fins, so the second helps draw the warmed air through and alleviate any loss in velocity.
