This is fantastic news. I've enjoyed watching people build their own submersed builds for a while now and alternate cooling methods are awesome. Now we have it on a large scale, and I'm glad to see Intel put their stamp of approval on it. Awesome!
I heard people discussing doing this a decade or more ago when the Ghz barrier still hadn't been broken in order to over clock their CPUs. I can't see doing this at home on a standard build.
Of course its too heavy for home use, unless you never ever plan to move your PC and don't need to work on the hardware much.
Great idea for servers in data centers tho. Just cutting the noise from the air con's would already be a plus.
Erm, i thought fully submerged desktops have been around for some time now? From Hardcore Computers?
Having it for servers and being totally fine with Intel and their warranty is the great part :)
This looks like it will sure be a step in the right direction as far as cooling, and system noise goes! :D
I've worked in bio labs where mineral oil is readily available, is this the same stuff? I know its non conductive but i didn't know its thermal properties. Very interesting.
Very cool (no pun intended). This has definitely been around for a while but Intel being OK with it just makes it awesome.
