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...

Chip sales are usually slow in the first quarter of any year. But 2007 is shaping up to be a blah year in the microprocessor business all the way through. What's the problem? But what makes 2007 special? At least one reason is the transition to the Windows Vista operating system. Microsoft (MSFT) has said it sold 20 million Vista licenses in its first month of general release. Still, PC upgrades on both the consumer and enterprise side of the business have been slow to materialize amid questions over whether to upgrade immediately. Meanwhile on the Apple side, new machines and a new operating system are expected early in the summer, kicking... Read more...
