Iceberg Thermal IceSLEET X5, The Third Version Of This Unique Family
Much Blinkenlichten For Your System
The FPS Review have already looked at Iceberg Thermal’s IceSLEET X7 and X6, and continue with the IceSLEET X5, a smaller design to fit in tighter spaces. This model is 115 (L) x 146 (W) x 159 (H) mm and weighs in at 852 g, which should fit quite a few different cases. They tested the cooler with various fans speeds on a Ryzen 7 2700X at stock speeds, from full speed which saw temps of just under 69C all the way down to 600RPM which saw a toasty 75C. In all cases but the 600RPM tests, the IceSLEET X5 didn’t quite cool as well as it’s two larger siblings, which does make sense.
If you are looking for a powerful cooler for a small system, their tests show the Hyper 212 EVO is more effective and half the price of the IceSLEET X5. However if you want an exceptionally quiet cooler that has more RGBs than any other cooler on the market, then the extra cost is justified. Check out the full results, and links to the other two reviews in the full posting.
On the bench today is the Iceberg Thermal IceSLEET X5. It is part of Iceberg Thermal’s IceSLEET series, of which we have previously reviewed the IceSLEET X7 and the IceSLEET X6. We’ll strap it to our air cooling test platform that is built around a Ryzen 7 2700X processor with a manufacturer claimed TDP of 105W.
