Yes, literally speaking, Microsoft has made an announcement to deal with the Xbox 360’s chronic overheating problems by enhancing the level of cooling in the Xbox 360. Microsoft has installed a new heatpipe and heatsink to cool the AMD Xenon chipset in the console. The new heatpipe and heatsink will reduce overall case temperature and prevent the dreaded, so called “red ring of death,” an indicator that one’s system has croaked from heat stroke. However, it’s unclear whether Microsoft will include such cooling solutions in new units, or just in units that have been shipped to them for repair. The Xbox 360 has been notorious for its high rate of failure due to heat, especially those that... Read more...
Is it a hairdryer or a shower head?. Actually it's neither. Shown in the photo is the C2 comfort device from Herman Miller and is part of “The Be Collection.” Though it looks simple, it is armed with patented technologies that enhance one’s personal climate experience. The C2 allows users to personalize air temperature and enhance air quality via its particulate air filter that is Greenguard-certified. “The C2 is 41 percent recyclable, and businesses can count it toward environmental certification using the points-based LEED system. It also uses 90 percent less energy than a typical space heater.” The optimal operating distance is 18 inches and can increase the air temperature by up to 32... Read more...
We were just sent a link to an interesting video by the folks at CoolIT - the makers of the Freezone and the custom liquid / TEC hybrid cooling apparatus used in the Dell XPS 710 H2C Performance Gaming System.  The video shows off CoolIT's new Radeon HD 2900 XT cooler at work overclocking a pair of HD 2900 XT cards running in CrossFire configuration... With the CoolIT device installed, the cards were able to hit a stable core clock speed of 980MHz, which resulted in a 3DMark06 score of over 20K.  There aren't too many details in the video, and the background music wasn't very inspiring, but it's still pretty cool to see a top 15 all-time 3DMark06...

According to a story on newscientisttech.com, a UK-based company plans to introduce system that are cooled by chilled oil, rather than traditional heatsinks and fans. The idea behind the technology is that oil is a much better conductor of heat than air, and with an adequate design all of the fans can be eliminated from the system... "It is possible to cut power consumption in half," managing director Peter Hopton told New Scientist. "You don't need to drive inefficient fans, or the usual air conditioning." Hopton first got the idea after seeing computer enthusiasts discuss the idea online. Oil does not affect the function of electronic components and offers a potentially useful cooling solution...

PC World has the full scoop on a smartphone / portable media player that's set to take on Apple's upcoming iPhone, the Samsung UpStage M620. This device has some rather unique features and an innovative design that's sure to spur some discussion.        "Unveiled in January at the Consumer Electronics Show, the UpStage is a candy bar-style handset that's less than half an inch thick and not much taller or wider than an iPod Nano. While other multimedia-friendly cell phones struggle to balance the sometimes-conflicting requirements of a conventional handset and a music or video player, the UpStage solves this quandary by putting phone functions on one...

In recent months the computing industry has shown a trend of moving away from making ultra-fast CPUs despite the heat (and thus fan noise) generated, to seeking more energy efficient chips. Just imagine what the chips of today would be like if they generated half the heat. Now for the OCers out there, just imagine how far your water-cooling solutions will go if this ever hits the mainstream. "According to a new paper released at the IEEE Semi-Therm conference, IBM has discovered a way to dramatically improve processor cooling. Unlike some other recent cooling breakthroughs, IBM's discovery appears to be one that should be relatively inexpensive to implement, and could have a significant impact... Read more...
For reasons unknown, a good portion of the enthusiast market still thinks that memory cooling is a fruitless effort. Many high-end users still believe that memory chips run plenty cool, and that putting heat spreaders and heatsinks on them is a superficial effort at best, and that they don't provide any major benefits. The fact that nearly all high-end memory module and graphics card memory manufacturers use some sort of additional cooling doesn't seem to matter. For a long time, I was a member of this camp as well. The first memory modules with heat-spreaders showed themselves in 2000-2001, right about the time that the industry was shifting from SDRAM to DDR SDRAM, and Rambus RDRAM... Read more...

When he was a first year student at the MIT Media Labs, Paulo Blikstein built a water-based device that could handle two Boolean operations, AND and XOR.  And after making a few hardware revisions, ended up building a 4-bit adder out of some strategically cut acrylic and rubber tubing. "The idea of the project was to build a device that could do computation without electrons (well, not considering the electrons in water itself). Water was a interesting choice, in fact, Fluidics is a very important field of study that is widely used in aerospace or mission-critical applications, where electronic control devices don't offer the needed reliability...

If you don't have hundreds or thousands of dollars to spend updating your new rig with one of AMD's socket AM2 CPUs, Thermalright is doing its best to keep your old AMD K8 CPUs running cool with their Thermalright SLK-948U until upgrading your processor isn't life threatening to you're wallet. "The Thermalright SLK-948U is an oldie but a goodie. This 635 gram chunk of copper is still a relevant heatsink however, resembling something akin to a metallic Toblerone with copper fins. It's this design which keeps the SLK-948U alive and kicking, and as you'll see in a moment more than capable for any K8 processor. The heatsink ships in a very plain cardboard box with a small...
