how does spinning prevent dust? fans collect dust.

also it would require your computer to be running 24/7

So how does moving the heatsink into the air instead of the air into the heatsink create 30x efficiency increases? Where is the scientific explanation using thermodynamics?

more surface area to absorb the heat? 1/1000th is quite close and is practically touching it. I'm not sold on the validity of this but I'm not willing to dismiss it entirely either.

1/1000th of an inch is essentially touching. It's just a couple of micrometers. For reference, consider that Ivy Bridge uses a .045 micrometer fab process.

In fact, even your average heatsink isn't always "touching", hence the need for thermal grease.

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.

I don't know much about computers but could this revolutionize the processing industry? Like is the one thing holding back processing power heat?

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