Besides hard disk drives, the most noise from a computer is from the computer cooling fans, by all means, fans have got bigger and quieter, however some are still very loud, especially when they begin ticking and humming as they get worn out or when the motherboard sets the fans to run at 100% all of the time. However, iTnews Australia, have reported that U.S. based researches have developed a new fan designs which does not have any moving parts. The fan once in use is totally silent.
MSI has developed a cooler that makes use of the Stirling Engine Theory, thus using no electricity, instead utilizing heat. The Stirling Engine works by trapping heat in a closed circle, and constantly heating and cooling it, which makes the air expand and contract. This then makes a piston move up and down, which powers the cooler?s fan. In this case, the air is heated from contact with the northbridge, and then cools by contact with the heatsink.
This year at the CES 2008 (America's Biggest Consumer Electric Show) Thermaltake will be bringing you the latest in technology, one of the items they will be showing off is the revolutionary DuOrb CPU cooler, VR-Zone reports.
Akasa's latest cooling product is the "Revo" (short for Revolution). Whether it's a big enough rebellion to overthrow the market remains to be seen as the majority of these ideas flip flop. According to Adrian Young, Marketing Director of Akasa, "It?s quieter than heatpipe coolers, cooler than conventional heatsinks, and easier to fit... than watercoolers. This technology could revolutionize CPU cooling."
OCZ have unveiled their latest cooling product, the Vendetta. While the design of the cooler is nothing we haven't already seen, the cooler's three copper heat pipes make direct contact with the processor, instead of the conventional base plate. Aside from the better heat transfer, the Vendetta is 134mm tall, gives off 22-34 DBA and operates at 2800RPM.
While apparently this cooler has been in the wild for a matter of weeks now (what?, i don't keep up with cooling), chances are the majority of readers haven't heard of it. Scythe's Ninja Mini has six copper heat pipes connecting its aluminum base to an array of aluminum fins. The Mini is 150mm high, weighs 580g, and its (optional) 80mm fan operates at 2300rpm.
