Hokey Smokes that's a great idea! I would be more worried about long term "entropy" if you will, than anything else. Sounds like in order to run at top shape, it must be balanced very well. What about dust, wear on parts and viscosity breakdown (assuming it's oiled)?

Now if only they could make a 70% efficient fanless /pumpless cooling device.

Internet registration would be useless. It's too easy to register a fake name even at the most cautious sites these days. Hell, people have found ways to register fake names at DMV and soc sec offices.

There's no time like the future.

ohh, joseph4.0, you have it wrong. Chipsets get a lot hotter the the CPU, and i mean a lot. The 780i average temp is about +-95 C, depending if your overclocking or not. The ceiling temperature for the 780i is 135C

It doesnt matter that it doesnt start up along with your computer. When the chip heats up it heats up the sink along with it, if the sink isnt hot enough to turn the fan, the chip isnt too hot either.

But yah I wouldnt trust it with powerful proc either. It would be nice if they could find any aspects of this technology to make powered cooling more efficient.

This is nothing new..learned it in physics. The heat makes the fan turn thats all. Only if they can use this on much bigger things

I don't like the idea of having to register before I use the internet. Sounds like big brother stepping in on everything I do.

1. Who the hell would implement a 'new internet'? besides, nobody would go for that big an anti net-neutrality push.

2.when you 1st boot your pc the proc heats up fast.. will this Stirling Engine be able to spin up that fast? cool idea but I'm not sure I'd trust it with my quad.

The cooler apears to be for the chipset, which does not get nearly as hot as the main proc.
