A revolution in CPU cooling

What do we mean by "revolution in processor cooling"? CoolChip - that's a whole revolution. It is the newest air cooling system for processors. It is believed, that it could be a breakthrough towards CPU cooling. Atypical design, in which there are no typical heat sinks, this is just one of many curiosities. Without these heatsinks CoolChip is still about 40 % more effective than previous coolers.

Modern computers cannot function without cooling the heat-producing processors. Contemporary systems, which keep computers operating are most often based on air cooling, which is ineffective but cheap. These coolers consist of a heat sink, which must extract heat from the system and from the fan, which must disperse this air. Various attempts have been made to increase the efficiency of this type of cooling. For this purpose, faster and larger fans or larger heat sinks are used. Hybrid systems have also become fashionable recently, which are a combination of liquid and air cooling. However, all these solutions increase the price of such a cooler, not to mention a large amount of free space necessary to install such a system in the computer. Therefore, such solutions are not the most practical.

The CoolChip cooler prototype attracts a lot of attention. The producer is CoolChip Technologies. This cooler uses kinetic cooling technology. As you can see it on the internet in photos, this system does not have a traditional heat sink. Its role in the CoolChip Technologies solution is replaced by… a windmill, which, unlike typical coolers, is made of metal. The heat generated by the processor is thus transferred from the copper base directly to the fan suspended just above it. The windmill picks up heat and dissipates it at the same time. Such a solution is supposedly found by Fr. 40 percent increase the CPU cooling efficiency in our computer. If CoolChip really met the above dependence, it would be an extremely advantageous solution. However, it is unlikely that this product will appear on the market. Why? Well, the production of such a device is certainly much more difficult and requires appropriate equipment, and this would probably affect the cost of the cooler itself. A certain disadvantage is also noticed, which the manufacturer may not have thought about: a small space between the copper base and the fan will become clogged with dust, which will significantly reduce the efficiency of the entire system. For now, the company is holding back on introducing the "revolutionary" cooler to the market.
