Well the biggest problem why water cooling will never become a part of the everyday computer is because it does take some technical understanding and basic reasoning skills then most are willing to give. It takes more work to upgrade your computer as well as maintaining the system and protecting from leaks. Water cooling is something that I never see a main stream company like dell, hp, sony or any of them making a common piece of hardware in there computers. Even though it works good, the cost is not efficient as well as it brings too many risks to installation. Over time if the system is not maintained properly it could burn out the whole system. Upgrading is a bit too hard for people who rely on the plug and play feature for everyday upgrades. Also the problem with self mouting water blocks on new pieces of hardware, and well just voiding the warranty. No company is going to take a part back after you fry it due to improper water block modding. This is a art only done by those who know there way around a comp, and have the money to put where there mouth is when it comes to pimping there rig. Its like guys pimping out cars, its just less $$, but they do it for bragging rights.

But however I agree the cpu manufacturers need to develop something fast when it comes to over heating. If anything I bet you they already have a solution, they are just sitting on it. As long as they can get away with using cheep fans to hold the temperature under the breaking point, they will do nothing about it. Fans are cheep, somewhat reliable, and well is stable in a ever changing technical world. Water cooling is just a transfer point for those who want more till something reasonable comes along to replace it all. But since that happens who knows when, water cooling will be used more once cost come down, and well those who are just now gotten into heat piping will start thrive for the more "riskier" water cooling

Heatpipes have been in used much longer than W/C.

some of the bigger companies (i think it was sony, not sure) are already experimenting with implementing wc in there "off the shelf" computers. And if intel continues on the road of the prescott (which they prolly won't) they will have to look for better cooling methods than their crappy stock cooling. But if they're smart enough they'll continue on the road of the pentium M.

Call it what you like, it's improvement or further expansion of heat pipe technology.
