That is utter bull-hit. Everyone who has studied just a bit of physics know that you need to maximise the surface layer, not fill out all the cracks with super-nano-goo.
The king's new clothes have arrived xD
So it's like a wicking fabric, only nano, invisible, and for heat? Could work I suppose, if you happen to live in "Physics Experiment Land" where every process can operate in neat isolation from every other process.
Hahahaha... Well that's nothing compared to MY invisible, intangible cooling solution which may reduce CPU temperatures by 20 degrees when coupled with an approved heatsink cooler. Only £9.99. Call 1-800-GULLIBLE and ask for a wake-up call.
Sponge. Great insulator. Poor metaphor.
That's probably what ist does, maximise surface area on a nano-scale
Sounds like a gimmick. Will have to wait until bit tech/custom pc get hold of some for review.
So to save money they arent putting aluminium spreaders on them and to justify it there using a solution that cant be seen?
are kingmax nigerian by any chance?
Hey, I just invented an invisible CPU, any buyers?
Sounds like a gimmick. Will look forward to the reviews though.
My invisible heat exchanger is a thing called "Oxygen"
So, basically it's a kind of pre-applied TIM using the surrounding air as the dissipator? Judgment reserved until independent figures released. Could be a game-changer, more likely to be a white elephant.
Unfortunately, DRAM chips don't have thermal sensors, there's not much chance of being able to verify the technology. I suppose you could apply the goo (?) to something that does have a thermal diode, but as those chips require large heatsinks to keep them cool, we're into the realms of TIM testing and that's a whole can of worms...
I sell invisible gold and diamonds, genuine goods I swear!
Are you familiar with the physical properties of a sponge, good sir? It's maximized surface to mass ratio! Goodness me.
And anyone who knows a bit of nanophotonics will tell you that nano-scale structures have a tendency towards phonon confinement, thus decreasing thermal conductivity. Since the engineers probably aren't completely incompetent, I would suggest that they have found an application with the reverse effect. It's quite amazing the number of people who seem to have decided that 'if you can't see it, it doesn't work'.
Presumably, you are a fan of explosions inside your pc case? =p
wonder if I can buy them using my revolutionary invisible Â£20 notes
The key issue is that if the coating will survive installation.
Gripping the coating and attempting to shove the RAM stick down = no more coating.
So they claim that they made a thermal paste so efficient that it by itself is better than a decent HT with shitty thermal paste!? If this is true I am surprised they are not coming out marketing the paste. I mean if it is that good I want to put it on everything!
