Four New Ways To Chill Computer Chips

Here's a look at water pipes, two-phase cooling, heat sink hybrids, and carbon nanotubes as possible solutions for taming the temperatures of CPUs in the future.

آ…heat sinks and fans won’t cut it for future processors, which will be 3-D stacks of ICs. Such layering can trap heat between chips, making getting rid of it even harder. Researchers are exploring better ways to cool chips and gadgets, either by redesigning tried-and-tested methods or drastically overhauling them.
