quote:Originally posted by David SparkmanI have always wondered why this kind of technology is not built into cpu chips. We know the chip temperature, just need to keep it down to a non-condensing value and put the hot side someplace close to larger cooling fans. In ancient times, they used airconditioner refrigent to cool the old overclocked Cray computers. It seems like a natural for laptop computers. My old P3 runs at 2.0 gig, but the new ones are 1.8 for the sake of battery life and heat. I never run my laptop off of batteries, it is for lugging to customer sites.David

The fluid re-condensates further up the device, and dribbles back to the hot surface, so the system is analogous to a person cooling themselves down on a hot day by sweating, except that the sweat is effectively recycled...
IF this is such a nothing invention, why all the hyper Why the schlorship, why are they getting flown to Japan? All this hype for a no-nothing invention.[?]
I think there is an essential difference between CPU cooling and Air Con forcomfort. A CPU works fine at above ambient temperature so a passive system can work (with all the inherent advantages of cost and simplicity. Air Con needs to be working 'up hill', to bring the living space below ambient temperature. It has to be active and will ADD to the over all heatshifting problem.
