(which if you read is non-conductive). A little time with a few qtips cleaning everything out, hose replacement and a refill and I was good to go. No shorts, everything worked fine. If you are into overclocking or just want a silent system I recommend water cooling to anyone. I have since stopped overclocking for the most part, but having a dead silent system is great. I used to have 8+ fans spinning away in my system (counting cpu and gpu) and now I have 2 (both big 120mm for the radiator) that spin slowly and quietly.
That was the explanation given on the article... I hope I can still find it...
But of course, innovations come everytime and previous ideas can be totally changed...
Remember in history, people believe the world was flat and those who reject it were excommunicated or hanged for it. Even the prominent scientist of that time believe it was true.
On the other hand... If they have perfected the technology, then there is no reason why it can't be used for performance notebooks or computers...
Intel and AMD trying so hard to have a low wattage, low heat and everything, when they could have use a cooling system for the heat issues...
But then again, perhaps they are working with it right now... Who knows???
Just one comment on the frozen CPU regarding safety.
Remember Steve McQueen
died of a lung cancer from exposure to substance present in brake pads and his racing suit when he was racing cars long before he was an actor. This substance was regarded as harmless at that time and even used in houses before. This substance is Asbestos.
So even If the government approves the safety of the water cooling liquids today... Perhaps it will be recalled
decades from now for being carcinogenic. Cancer takes decade to form and may go unnoticed for a while. The association that exposure to a new
substance causes cancer takes a while for the scientist to discover. Since cancer and other diseases as well is generally noticed when many cases sprung up and they do a back tracking investigation...it will be hard to say that a new substance is really without a doubt is safe.
By the way, what is the safety rating of the cooling liquid? Just curious
But that is an assumption of the worst case scenario that might not even happen... Don't let that stop you from innovating.
Pharoke perhaps you can make a review or a Do-It-Yourself article and show some pictures with your unit.
A new invention starts with skepticism...which later become the general norm...
Perhaps you can be the Bill Gates of water coolers...
