Liquid cooling coming to Macs?
Macworld has an article about a new cooling technology developed by Cooligy in cooperation with Apple, Intel, AMD and DARPA.
[The new system] collects heat using a thin layer of micro-machined silicon that sits on top of the microprocessor. "A very dense area of Micro-Channels etched into the silicon enables fluid to circulate through the heat collector and efficiently absorb and take away heat," the company explains. A tiny solid-state Electro-Kinetic pump circulates fluid through the cooling system and to a "heat radiator", which transfers the heat to air. The solution makes no noise, has no moving parts, and is reliable in the long-term, the company said.
