quote: Overclocking does get more out of the computer, the problem is that in order to really see benefits (FPS in games, faster apps) you need "drastic" measures (ever ran a compressor indoors?).
quote: So if not about performance, what is overclocking?well I answered that already - its about bragging rights and bling as well as performance.
quote: However these products are unlikely to ever become mainstream. In fact I think I think part of the allure to overclocking is the fact that it IS niche.
quote: if you can get it below ambient temperatures without having to supply power to it... I would highly suggest you keep it a secret
quote: Each heat exchanger is thermally coupled by a heat pipe to the base of the VTM. Running through the VSM, the heat pipe transports heat from the VTM base to the heat exchanger. Since ammonia, the working fluid in heat pipes, has a freezing point lower than the permafrost, the heat pipe works throughout the year, even during the coldest winter nights
quote: Not entirely true. Water can transport heat better than air can. That's the main reason water cooling is more effective.
quote: My point was that water as a transport is not the main reason why water cooling is effective.
quote: why the "hydrojet"? is it a watercooler of some sort?
quote: In addition, they have shown to be ballistic conductors at room temperature, which means electrons can flow through CNTs without collisions.
