Anisotropic nano Carbon Fiber heatsinks

@ 2005/11/05
There is a really good presentation on the potentials and limitations of Anisotropic nano Carbon Fiber heatsinks (thermal conductivity of 650 W/mK) right here at The company has developed an "Oblique Angle Anisotropic Carbon Fiber Heatsink" that looks rather like a foam tile from an anechoic chamber. The geometry is neccessary because of the way carbon fibers conduct heat, in order to maximize the cooling surface area.

why not make wc blocks in this stuff

..and it looks funky too

If it works as claimed and able to cost down; this is what I call technology advancement.

Cooling laser gun

Watercooling machine gun was dated back to WWI, over 80 years later we use the same mind set to cool processor as we were cooling MG and car engines.
