Active Cool debuts CPU cooling system
Israeli research and development company Active Cool is launching its AC4G CPU cooling system today. The company claimed its system, based on a solid thermo-electric heat pump, could cool the most advanced Intel Pentium 4 and AMD K8 processors.
The technology in Active Cool's system is based on components used in aerospace and military applications. Initially the company intends to sell it through conventional cooling system manufacturers, and in a year's time will approach PC manufacturers with the intention of either selling or licensing it to them.
Hewlett-Packard is also working on system-cooling technologies, applying its inkjet printer device to dispense dielectric fluid to cool chips.
