Sandia CPU cooler promises 30x better heat transfer than standard CPU coolers

Posted on Monday, June 25 2012 @ 22:44:15 CEST by


Sandia Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Lockheed Martin, introduces a proof-of-concept cooler that promises almost 30 times higher heat transfer efficiency than traditional tower heatsinks. The Sandia cooler uses a different approach to cooling, the cooler doesn't directly touch the thing it is intended to cool but spins above it at a mere 1/1000th of an inch on an "air bearing".

The cooler promises very quiet operation and according to Sandia it can be manufactured at a cost of less than $10. A LED cooling firm has already signed a license and Sandia is in talks with four chip cooling companies to discuss business partnerships.
The cooler unit spinning at 2,000RPM above your expensive CPU may sound a little hazardous but the company say that very tight manufacturing tolerances aren’t more necessary than other computer components because “the hydrodynamic air bearing gap distance is passively self-regulating.” Also dust particles that may fit in the air gap “are swept outward and ejected by centrifugal force”.
