Default A Heatsink That Spins at 2000 RPM? Enter the Sandia Cooler

Air and water-based cooling solutions for your CPU or GPU might seem "good enough", but in reality, they're usually quite inefficient. The reason boils down to the fact that A) these coolers don't actually generate cooling properties (like freon in a refrigerator) and B) there's a limit to how well they can expel warm air without sounding like a jet engine. Sandia Laboratories has a solution to the latter issue with a moving heatsink based on an impeller design.


Read the rest of our post and then discuss it here!

I can't see how it would have an effective interface with the thing being cooled since it's, well you know, spinning.
