    When I was building my pc, and told my mother my PC had water cooling, her legitimate response, and i quote, was, "Is it connected to a water faucet??" And, she meant it. She had no idea what closed loops, open loops, and custom water cooling. I burst out laughing, and immediately corrected her. Best part of the build.

    Something is gonna stop this from making it to consumers. Be it the patent holder not allowing others to do it because they want more money, or it only being released to high end server equipment or whatever. Hopefully that or the thermoelectric cooling develops better and is widely available so people and companies can push the hardware more

    I invented water cooling in the early 1980s I stopped working on my third prototype because people laughed at me ,but not the ones who stole my idea, they've gotten totally out of control with it with fans in front and back of the radiator? and they're still moving tons of air is multiple fans robbing electricity (and creating heat)from the power supply? Way restricted coolant flow causing failure of a non redundant single water pump, I could go on but I'm not. , this time 'm protected , so feel free to steal this one, I'm taking the guts out of a small window air conditioner or one slightly smaller than that)adapting my condensing coil to one of your water pipe CPU heads , with the condensing coil and circ fan inside of a sealed up PC like a refrigerator except no one to open and close the door so no moisture will get in ,I will be able to temperature regulate any thermal heat a CPU or internal computer can dish out and with a system that's not drawinging off of the power supply you're eliminating that heat too so go ahead and laugh if it doesn't work I'll be laughing with you, if it does work 'it will be quieter more efficient and eliminate problems of heat coming from a PC ever again in my humble opinion anyway. I've ordered all the parts to building a computer and I've already started to work on my prototype

    Integrated Sub-zero Alcohol-cooled, RISC5, 3D CPU cube when? (Mineral Oil PC not included.) How many cores could you fit in a CPU cube? Actually, how would 3D CPU construction affect all of the performance statistics? Would it allow a higher clock, or would it simply let you do more with the frequency you have? I wonder how the progress is on the research for the recently discovered room temperature superconductor. Probably not very far. Studying a substance in a supercritical state seems a smidgeon difficult. And you definitely want to study something that you're considering using to make expensive and critical infrastructure out of.

    This is a great video. will vortex VS air coolled VS water cooled VS liquid metal : the future mainstream tech in 5-10 year is really blurry but it will be so cool This is also greatly edited and doesn't 'need' a green screen BUT the multiple camera angles and the unfocused shot(Linus not looking at the camera for the whole shot) is infuriating to me. Especially on a short, to the point video, I find it distracting without adding any value. The shots are beautiful thanks to camera mans and editor (8K all the way 🤔?) but really distracting when switching for no reason on such concise shots and videos

    I heard of this over a decade ago on MIT's science news magazine. It's been a VERY long time coming. There has been plenty of time to polish this idea up to where it is now, which is the fully functional prototype phase. I think it will be used with something similar to heat-pipes not too long from now, as well as liquid cooling. Honestly, even with conventional liquid cooling, this process is efficient enough to use pure convection liquid cooling on current processors.
