Ingenious new PC uses copper foam as a revolutionary cooling material

One of the most unusual crowd-funding projects out there is what is being billed as “the smallest high-end PC in the world.” The device is called Silent Power and its most notable feature is a slab of copper foam that’s on top of the computer. All the hottest elements of the computer are placed next to the foam slab, which sucks up and dissipates heat without need of air or liquid cooling systems. The Silent Power’s manufacturer claims that the computer never heats up above 50 degrees centigrade, or 122 degrees Fahrenheit. Dimensions of the device are 15 x 13 x 7 centimeters.

The story is too old to be commented.
