Abstract: As with other Glacialtech heatsinks, the Igloo 4300 uses fairly thin fins of varying height to dissipate the heat.

Acoustic Samples: Listen to this Heatsink!

With the 15x70x70mm fan on the Igloo 4300 it is a little bit on the loud side. Stock Intel heatsinks are always a lot quieter. To hear the heatsink in operation for yourself, click on the little headphones below and download the MP3 file.

Sound Level Measurements:

Listening to the actual noise a heatsink makes allows you to hear what pure numbers alone cannot get across. To further emphasize FrostyTech's reliance on cold hard facts when evaluating a heatsink, we also take Decibel readings with a sound level meter. These results may be higher than the manufacturer's listed specs, but then again these are real world measurements.
