    2:03 big misunderstanding from linus here , the 1.7Kw figure refers to the converter's power, not the heat dissipation. The heat dissipation is one minus the converter's efficiency times 1.7kw , which comes to much much less than 1.7kw . Disappointed in your "science" team.

    I always fantasied about a Liquid Nitrogen self-contained cooling solution roughly 15 years ago. I tried to build something using those thermal conductive chips (TEC's we called them), but it turns out they emit more heat than a generous heatsink. So mission was failed and people considered Liquid Nitrogen again. I personally had once built a rig that ran on antifreeze because I lived in a basement without heating and always thought antifreeze would be better than using water without risking a potential freeze in winter weather. I was going for awesome there. Worked pretty well. Antifreeze can be used for liquid cooled computers in lower temperature environments. But it still didn't help solve many overheating issues in the past generation.

    Maybe a better solution to the problem of CPU heat dissipation is to just not generate the heat in the first place. With Intel/AMD processors increasingly needing more and more exotic cooling technology to keep from melting, I have to wonder if ARM CPUs will someday soon be the preferred processors for high-performance systems. Currently, the world's fastest supercomputer is using ARM.

    The problem I see with this is fouling the microchannels over time, and separately of course the risk of the pump breaking down. Chip manufacturers want to shift the risk into the cooling manufacturers so that they only have to worry about the processor performance and I don’t blame them, I would be much more concerned about reliability through a micro channel water loop, and that would be a monumental challenge for cleaning, if that is even possible.

      Plus just think of how many rookies would end up soaking their chipset during the installation process. It’s much safer to keep the chip and it’s cooler separate. CPU dies Change the cpu. Cooler dies, change the cooler, with an integrated system, if either breaks down, you need to replace the CPU which is the expensive part. Air coolers are reliable and for all except the most obsessive tinkerer, usually all you need to keep a high performance machine working well for years.

    All CPUs and GPUs should be able to run fanless with a heat sink built into the heat spreader that can be expanded with a larger heat sink and/or air and/or water cooling. Should have been like this years ago. Didn't have to be this fancy new microstructure, although now it's invented and hopefully cost effective it's a good addition to the basic concept... It's like they want to sell junk more than fundamentally improve products.

    One thing is to move away the heat from the heat spots and other completely different is to dissipate it, you Still will need a way to keep the liquid cool enough that it can continues to extract heat, so while you will need less liquid you will need a more efficient way to dissipate heat into the ambient than a radiator, maybe a peltier will be a must in those systems.

    IBM did this years ago with a computer in Germany called the Super MUC. I was the ME at the company that made the manifolds to collect and distribute the coolant between the rack units. Cray was also doing this good couple years before IBM. Generically it's known as warm water cooling. This is because they don't need to chill the water to extract the heat from the processor. The coolant actually gets warm enough that they can eliminate some of the heat pumps in the system and recover a lot more energy.

    There is a massive draw back to this system. The water has to be extremely clean. Any particles in it will clog the capillaries in a short amount of time. That means no filling it with tap water. HAving to have a special filtration system in the loop to keep any particles generated from the pump and other components from being pushed into the CPU cooling system. The filter would have to be as close as possible to the CPU to ensure the least amount of water loop is between it and the cpu. That means this entire cooling system is going to go up in cost a lot.

    Speaking as someone with some industry experience: this will likely never come to consumer chips. Single die processors already involve hundreds of exposures and etching phases to be created with each step adding time, money and complexity. All chips are subjected to a binning process and the additional exposures needed to create the channels introduces more opportunities for error later on. However I could see this direct die cooling being done in a stacked setup like SK Hynix’s HBM which was featured on the data center V100 GPU chip where they fab both chips separately, then weld the top layer on. This way they could sell chips as normal with a bonded or welded IHS and one with the welded micro channels on top. I’m definitely excited about this space since water cooling has always been over engineered because of the thermal inefficiencies between different substrates.
