Intel invents 5GHz stock cooler

This contains the copper core which makes contact with the CPU, as well as a centrifugal pump which uses a DC brushless motor. This pumps the water up through solid metal tubing to a more traditional radiator, cooled by a 120mm fan. The integration of the cold plate improves thermal performance. The main body of the unit is made of injection-moulded plastic...............................................
AND
Because Intel designed it to be assembled from commonly made parts, final retail coolers are expected to cost less than $50!
:shock:

This thing is designed to work for more than 3 years, without any leaks or even a top-up :shock:

yes please ---> Corsair Nautilus --> :axe: ;)

Damn, no info on production plans or release dates. Funny, they were able to estimate a price though. :roll:

It looks like it's only an R&D thing.....but promising non-the-less!!!

It looks like Intel learned something from the Apple G5 PowerMac liquid-cooling unit. It has black fuel line hose, automotive clamps, and aluminum pipes.

For it to last more than 3 years isn't a problem. It could run 5-7-10 or more. Although the fan may need to be replaced sometime in that realm.

X bit labs had a little bit of info about it in their coverage of IDF.
I think its a good idea. Even with cooler running chips in the future, multi cores will still add up the total thermal load. Air will only go so far. Fluid cooling is the next logical step. I don't know what happened in regards to the fluid metal cooling R&D a few companies were looking into. Lots of R&D going into photon based computing vs Electron based to make null and void this very issue. Ah, where for art thou room tempature super conductivity

without any leaks? everyone knew intel had a watercooler idea for their high end retail box CPU's. I've heard about that online and from Intel for years. Intel had this in the works long before the Delphi/Apple solution.

ya, saw that earlier. closed loop, never refill and copper pipes with a std. 120 rad.... pretty interresting.

on an Intel "slap your hand for overclocking" mobo to boot! lol

that is really awesome. I wonder if AMD has the same type of thing in the works

i wouldn't think so, AMD actually has decent technology built into their core DSL SOI so the chips run much cooler, as we all know.

A 3800+ using 35W & 4800+ using 65W --> who needs good cooling ;P

unless you're overclocked past 3GHz :)

hmmm, gotta change my sig don't i, lol

This isn't purprising considering Intels track record for having hot chips.
There is no theory of evolution. Just a list of animals Chuck Norris allows to live.
