Glaciator Copper Heatsink Perspectives

The Fan:
With the protective wire grill already removed we can look directly at the heart of the Glaciator. Behold the Augmented fan in all its glory. Seriously, the manner in which this fan is integrated within the Glaciator is a patented technique which augments the manner in which air moves around the fan - in effect decreasing the sound output by a few dBa's. The Evercool fan is mounted directly onto the copper fins by some tightly toleranced machining and a bit of adhesive. We'll go into a bit more detail about the fan technology in second.

Heatsink Top:
Although it is difficult to see, the space for the base of the fan is CNC machined right from the tops of the Glaciators copper fins which are just over a millimeter thick, and spaced from between 1.5mm to 2.0mm. The clip has two special tabs which support the massive weight of the heatsink when it is mounted and in the vertical position a top of a processor. The tabs transfer much of the force directly to the ZIF socket, and away from the processor.

Side A:
There are a couple aspects to pay close attention to when looking at the side of the Glaciator. First notice the three horizontal copper sections at the top where the fan would sit. These sections are the heart of the Augmented Fan system developed by Lemont Aircraft Corp. and are what give the Glaciator some of its' special characteristics. The copper fins are 25mm tall.

Side B:
The sections forming the Augmented Fan region are supported by the outer shroud as well as being soldered into place. The whole assembly is completely copper for the best possible thermal conduction. The clip is hinged and operates very easily with out the need for any type of tooling.

Heatsink Base:
This has to be one of the best finished bases we've ever seen. The base of the Glaciator is face milled completely flat (we checked with a straight edge) and the surface finish is extremely fine.

MTS are definitely due some credit for their meticulous construction principles!
