Intel demonstrates new cooling process

Intel demonstrates new cooling process

Intel showed off a brand new cooling process today that could put an end to burnt laps from horribly hot notebook computers. In fact, the idea is to make the outside of the notebook cool.

This process is very similar to that used in cooling a jet engine. The laminar jet airflow system pushes away any hot air from the bottom of the case, which is what typically leads to the hot exterior. This way, the laptop could actually stay cool enough to sit in your lap. And you won't need one of those USB fan things, either.

AMD Phenom X4 overheat revisited: cooling tweaks save budget boards

AMD Phenom X4 overheat revisited: cooling tweaks save budget boards

After AMD was forced to address the potential overheating issues experienced by the higher-speed processors in its Phenom X4 range earlier this week, new testing suggests that workarounds can be implemented so that the 9750 and 9850 chips will work with motherboards not using AMD's recommended 790 chipset.  AnandTech found that, with four low-cost boards claiming support for AMD's 125W processors, modifications including tweaked or aftermarket heatsinks or an additional, targeted 120mm fan would significantly boost stability.  The compatibility claims of those tested had not in fact been validated by AMD themselves.
