Arctic Cooling Freezer Extreme and Some More
Even though both Advanced Micro Devices and Intel Corp. fight for low power consumption and heat dissipation of their microprocessors, high-performance chips still require rather powerful coolers. Therefore, introduction of new cooling solutions attracts a lot of attention, as all manufacturers tend to make quieter solutions with better specifications.
At CeBIT 2007 Arctic Cooling, the company which is best known for its coolers for graphics cards, unveiled a prototype of Freezer Extreme cooling device for central processing units. The cooler, which is to be available in June, 2007, sports eight heatpipes and over 200 fins, which should allow the device to cool-down even high-end microprocessors with overclocking and with only one 120mm fan, meaning that the solution should be extremely quiet.
In addition to the cooler Arctic Cooling demonstrated a computer case prototype with power supply unit located under the hard disk drive and optical drive bays, which makes the case a little smaller, however, adds additional thermal stress to HDDs.
