Like is the one thing holding back processing power heat?

Nope. Power is going down.

I bet everything that the word "efficient" isn't necessarily referring to its effectiveness compared to a standard heatsink/fan.

Maybe it uses 30x less material or some ****.

The picture in the comments is far more interesting.

That looks nice. Too bad it's going to be a long time before consumers get a hold of it.

I only believe after using seeing some real benchmarks. The airflow doesn't look very good at all. And the exposed surface is too small. I think a standard intel cooler that comes bundled with their processors is more effective than this new heatsink.

Wouldn't magnets on the inside of a computer be bad?

Nah thats such a myth these days. Only HDD's need to worry and they are very protected from all but the strongest magnets.

Especially considering there are some pretty strong magnets inside of HDD's themselves.

It all depends were the magnet is located and how strong it is. Common white board magnets, or fields produced by moving motors are too weak to corrupt HDDs, let alone distort electrical currents inside the chips.
However a strong enough field can easily stop a computer. The lab I work for has a 1.5T permanent magnet used to simulate MRI environments in order to test is a material is safe or not to use inside a MRI. One day I had a brain fart and decided to put my old smartphone(Galaxy S) near it, and my phone never worked again. Good thing the damage couldn't be detected by standard means, so I just brought the phone to the carrier shop and said it stopped working and they gave me a new one for free.

...They have no method of detecting magnet damage?

Anybody ever stick there hand into a powered computer and accidentally touch the fan?

Yes, actually. It's quite painful and can go to the bone.

What the hell kind of fans are you using? I've gone and stuck my hands into all kinds of computer fans and never gotten so much as a cut.
